Dental Careers at Safety-Net Programs
Safety-net programs provide oral health services for underserved families at dental clinics throughout the United States. We believe that everyone should have access to quality care, regardless of their ability to pay.
As dental capacity grows, the need for dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants committed to caring for underserved patients is growing as well. NNOHA coordinates a job bank to help connect safety-net dental openings with candidates looking for a career in service to underserved patients.
