Program Description

The Postdoctoral Training in General, Pediatric and Public Health Dentistry grant program provides funding to training programs to plan, develop, operate, or participate in approved postdoctoral training programs in general, pediatric or public health dentistry. The funds may also support a master's year for dental residents in accredited master's in public health degree programs. Additionally, grantees may use their funding to provide financial assistance to dental residents and/or practicing dentists who plan to work in general, pediatric or public health dentistry.

General Program Requirements

Eligible applicants are accredited dental or dental hygiene schools, public or private not-for-profit hospitals, or other pubic or not for profit entities, which the Secretary has determined is capable of carrying out such a grant. Eligible entities include entities that have programs in dental or dental hygiene schools, or approved residency or advanced education programs in the practice of general, pediatric, or public health dentistry. Federally Recognized Indian Tribal Government and Native American Organizations may apply if otherwise eligible.

Eligible entities may partner with schools of public health for the education of dental students, residents or dental hygiene students for a master's in public health in an accredited program.

Training activities must be conducted by an accredited entity; therefore, either the applicant or a partner organization responsible for the dental or dental hygiene training must be accredited.
