Grant Summary

We propose a greatly expanded Externship Program for fourth-year dental students that places externs on a mobile dental clinic. The training program will TRIPLE the number of participating externs and result in more skilled dentists; dentists who are more likely to care for indigent patients throughout their careers; and better access to dental treatment in “Dental Professional Shortage Areas.”
