ND Dental Loan Repayment Program

The Dental Loan Repayment program is a state/federal program designed to attract dentists to North Dakota to practice in areas of need.  The focus of the program is to encourage new dental school graduates to practice in North Dakota.  New dentists are selected based on the likelihood that they will practice in a rural community or safety net clinic and will see low-income patients. Each dentist selected may receive up to $80,000 to repay educational loans. There are several programs with varying requirements and conditions.

Application deadline:

  • Applications are due March 15th.
  • State Health Council Reviews by April 30.
  • Contracts signed and returned June 30.
