Dentists

Dentists who are willing to relocate, expand or establish new practices in underserved areas throughout California can be eligible to receive $300,000 from the state's CalHealthCares program, according to a Sept. 24 California Dental Association post.

To be eligible, dentists must accept Medi-Cal beneficiaries for at least 10 years. Once a dentist relocates, expands or establishes a practice in a designated area, he or she must maintain a minimum patient caseload of 30 percent or more Medi-Cal members.

Additional requirements include:

• Having an unrestricted license and being in good standing with the Dental Board of California.
• Being an active enrolled Medi-Cal provider without existing suspensions, disbarments or revocations.
• Having graduated from dental school, resident or dental fellowship within the last 15 years.
• Not participating in another loan repayment program or practice support grant.

Eligible dentists can apply in January 2020.
