Office of Practice Opportunities

The Iowa Practice Transitions Office is an integral component in recruiting dentists from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry.

Our office is one of the first places many students go when they are deciding what they would like to do after graduation.

We've created a centralized career services center to assist dental students, residents, graduates/alumni, and dental professionals in finding meaningful employment.
