The Clinical Dental Education Innovations grant program supports innovative clinical training for dental professionals and programs that increase access to dental care for underserved populations in Minnesota.

Potential uses of grant funds include funding for expanding existing programs that have demonstrated success in providing dental services to underserved populations, and developing or implementing new programs designed to improve access for underserved populations through the use of dental residents or students in dental professional training programs.

Examples of how the funds may be used include:

  • Development of curricula for new dental-only or interdisciplinary programs
  • Training programs for new dental professions such as dental therapy
  • Outreach to potential patients and trainees through teledentistry systems
  • Recruitment of volunteer or paid preceptors
  • Other expenses related to establishing new clinical training sites or expanding services at existing sites

Eligible applicants are teaching institutions and clinical training sites for projects that increase dental access for underserved populations and promote innovative clinical training of dental professionals in Minnesota.
