Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA IHEs, hospitals, nonprofit and faith-based organizations, and tribes for training programs in dentistry, oral hygiene, and related fields. Interested applicants are advised that required registrations may take as long as one month to complete. Funding will support programs that train predoctoral dental, dental hygiene, and other oral health care student trainees, in order to improve their ability to care for populations with medically complex conditions and special health care and behavioral health care needs. The purpose of the program is to improve the oral health of vulnerable, underserved, or rural populations through enhanced training programs for oral healthcare students.

Predoctoral Training in General, Pediatric, Dental Public Health Dentistry, and Dental Hygiene

Proposed predoctoral training programs in general, pediatric, or public health dentistry for dental students, dental hygienists, dental hygiene students, or public health dentistry students must address at least one of the following two focus areas:

Focus Area 1: Enhancing training to support integration of oral health within the broader primary health care delivery system to improve access to oral health care for populations and individuals with medically complex health conditions, special and/or behavioral health care needs in vulnerable, underserved, or rural communities.

Focus Area 2: Training to support oral health providers caring for vulnerable, underserved, or rural communities. 

For further details on program requirements and expectations, see pp. 13-14 in the NOFO listed in Supporting Documents below.

Program Objectives:

  • Increase the ability for dental students, dental hygiene students, and other approved primary care dental trainees to care for the needs of patients with complex health conditions and address the SDOH.
  • Improve the training of, or increase the number of, dentists, dental hygienists, and other oral health care students trained in predoctoral training programs located in rural or underserved areas.
  • Train dental students, dental hygiene students, and other health care students to practice in new models that stress the integration of oral health into the larger primary health care delivery systems.
  • Increase the number of primary care dentists, dental hygienists, and other oral health care providers who care for rural, underserved, or vulnerable populations.
