The Indian Health Service (IHS) Division of Oral Health (DOH) offers dentists an opportunity to practice dentistry in a unique environment — one that combines the experience of practicing in state-of-the art facilities and offers the kind of opportunity, adventure and purpose that comes from serving Indian communities.

Dental Consultant Spans Three States to Better Serve Patients

Dr. Dan Huber, a Quinault Tribe member and IHS Scholarship Program recipient, initially planned to stay at IHS to complete his service commitment, but he's stayed much longer: 28 years later, he’s still going strong as a Captain with the USPHS Commissioned Corps and as the Phoenix Area Dental Consultant. He spends his time traveling to more than 15 locations serving some 70,000 dental patients.


Cherokee Indian Hospital’s Innovative Design is Drawing in More Dental Patients

When the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians opened the new Cherokee Indian Hospital in November 2015, the state-of-the-art facility received accolades not only from the local Cherokee, NC, community who funded it, but also received national recognition for its unique architectural and patient-centered interior design. Best of all, the 155,000-square-foot facility increased dental services, patient traffic and kept appointments for the dental clinic.
