Dental Faculty Loan Repayment Program (DFLRP)

There are no current Dental Faculty Loan Repayment Program (DFLRP) active grants. No DFLRP grant competition is planned for 2016.


Funds may be used to plan, develop, and operate a dental faculty loan repayment program for faculty engaged in primary care dentistry to include general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, public health dentistry, and dental hygiene. Individuals participating in the program must agree to serve as full-time faculty members.  The program must agree to pay the principal and interest on the outstanding student loans of the individuals. Upon completion by an individual of each of the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth years of service, the program shall pay an amount equal to 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 percent, respectively, of the individual’s student loan balance as calculated based on principal and interest owed at the initiation of the agreement.


Entities eligible for grants to support training in general, pediatric, or public health dentistry include entities that have programs in dental or dental hygiene schools; or have approved residency or advanced education programs in the practice of general, pediatric, or public health dentistry.  Therefore, for the purposes of this announcement, the use of "general, pediatric, and public health dentistry", "primary care dentistry" and "dental faculty" shall include dental hygiene unless otherwise noted.
