Find a Career in Indian Health Dentistry

As a dental clinician practicing within the Indian health system, you will make a difference in the lives of patients who need your care most. American Indians and Alaska Natives represent a diverse, culturally rich community whose traditions and unique heritage will forever leave an indelible mark on you, both personally and professionally. If professional fulfillment and opportunities for outdoor recreation aren’t enough to entice you, surely the opportunity to live and work within some of the most picturesque areas of the country will.

In addition to providing one-on-one patient care, Indian health dental careers also offer opportunities to become involved in community prevention programs that can improve disease rates.
