Dental Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) designate areas or groups with a low number of dental health professionals for their population.

Safety Net providers include Federally Qualified Health Centers, Rural Health Clinics, and Free Clinics supported by the UMMC School of Dentistry. Information in this section outlines Dental HPSAs and our activities to improve dental care in these areas.
