repayment assistance to dentists who agree to practice in
a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) of South
Carolina or serve as full-time faculty at the MUSC

treat at least 100 unduplicated Medicaid patients.
Applicants must be licensed dentists. Priority for this
program will be given to those demonstrating need and
expressing honest intent to remain in the underserved
area once funding is completed or are in an area of
critical need at the College of Dental Medicine.
Amount of funding
The contract amount for community dentists is up to
$75,000, paid quarterly. The contract amount varies for
MUSC faculty and is paid annually.
