The purpose of this program is to create a Primary Care Dental Faculty Development Center (Center) to support the career development of junior primary care dental faculty (Trainees) [Doctors of Dental Surgery (DDS), Doctors of Dental Medicine (DMD), and Dental Hygienists (DH)] in accredited schools of dentistry through a cooperative agreement. This Center will support the development of Trainees as future clinician educator faculty and leaders in primary care dentistry. Trainees will gain the skills to be able to develop and implement sustainable academic faculty development activities at their home institutions and in community-based clinical primary care sites/primary care delivery systems, such as Community Health Centers (CHCs).

Who can apply

Eligible applicant organizations include accredited schools of dentistry, public or nonprofit private hospitals, or public or private nonprofit entities which the Secretary has determined are capable of carrying out such grant or contract such as an academic health center with an accredited primary care dental residency program. Domestic faith-based and community-based organizations, tribes, and tribal organizations are also eligible to apply, if otherwise eligible. The Center and subrecipient home institutions must be accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) before September 1, 2021. HRSA will check the CODA website for accreditation confirmation.
