Postdoctoral Training in General, Pediatric, and Public Health Dentistry grants provide funds to plan, develop, operate, or participate in, postdoctoral training programs in the fields of general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and dental public health.

Programs should prepare postdoctoral trained dentists to practice in and lead new and innovative models of oral health care delivery to underserved and vulnerable groups.

Applicants will be required to develop or enhance integrated health care delivery systems that serve as training sites for postdoctoral dental trainees. Integrated systems should include partnerships with primary care delivery organizations and other community-based organizations.

Applicants that develop and operate programs that encourage and support students from underrepresented minority, rural, veteran, or disadvantaged backgrounds may use funds to provide financial assistance to dental and dental hygiene students.


Eligible applicants are entities that have programs in dental schools, or approved residency or advanced education programs in the practice of general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, or dental public health.

Faith-based and community-based organizations, community colleges, as well as tribes and tribal organizations, are eligible to apply provided they are capable of carrying out grant requirements.
