by Report submitted · May 18th, 2017

Dr. P.T. Grimes, of Marion, was presented with the Iowa Dental Association's President's Award for his service to the Iowa Dental Association and the profession of dentistry. The award was presented in a special ceremony during the association's Annual Session in Cedar Rapids in early May.

When the selection was made earlier this year, Dr. Tom Peek, immediate past president of the Iowa Dental Association, said, "I am proud to present Tom with this award. He has served dentistry and has served others in a way very few of us do."

Dr. Grimes received his undergraduate degree in 1972 from the University of Iowa and his DDS degree in 1978 from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. He did a general practice residency at the VA Hospital in Iowa City from 1979 to 1980. Dr. Grimes was the Dental Director at Community Health Care in Davenport for five years before starting his own general dentistry practice in Cedar Rapids in 1985.

Dr. Grimes is a member of the American Dental Association, the Iowa Dental Association, and the University District Dental Society. He has been actively involved in organized dentistry at the local, state, and national levels for many years. He has served in all officer positions for the University district, as a trustee to the IDA representing the University District, as President of the Iowa Dental Association, and as a delegate to the American Dental Association House of Delegates. In addition, Dr. Grimes served as the local committee chair for the 2010 Iowa MOM, served on the Iowa Dental Board, and serves on the CRDTS Dental Exam Review Committee.

Dr. Grimes served as an adjunct faculty at the University of Iowa from 1985-2005 and as faculty at Kirkwood Community College from 1999-2005. He also serves as chair of the Dental Hygiene Advisory Committee to Kirkwood Community College.
