Northeast Delta Dental to fund $6M student loan repayment program

Insurer Northeast Delta Dental will provide $6 million in funding over three years for dental student loan repayments.

The goal of the initiative is to attract more dentists to Northeastern New England, according to a Dec. 12 news release from the company.

The program will be administered by the recruitment center at the Bi-State Primary Care Association, a nonprofit organization. It will be governed by a steering committee with representatives from Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Qualifying dentists can get up to $150,000 reimbursed over a three-year period. Dentists, dental students, and residents in training without a concurrent service obligation for loan repayment or debt forgiveness can apply.
