Note: Funding opportunities are now structured differently. See the Post-doctoral Training in General, Pediatric and Public Health Dentistry program and the State Oral Health Workforce program.
The Residency Training in Dental Public Health (DPH) program authorizes funds to promote postgraduate education of dentists in dental public health. Grant funding assists eligible entities to plan and develop new training programs and maintain or improve existing residency training programs, and provide financial assistance to residency trainees enrolled in such programs.
An entity that offers a Dental Public Health Training Program accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation, such as a School of Dentistry or Public Health, is eligible to apply. Governmental and nonprofit entities, including faith-based and community-based organizations are eligible to apply if they also have the requisite ADA accreditation.
