Washington Program Trains Dental Super-Generalists to Serve Rural Communities
Focusing on community needs and students’ desires to practice in rural and underserved areas, the University of Washington School of Dentistry (UWSOD) created the RIDE program, or Regional Initiatives in Dental Education. The program, designed to provide students with the knowledge, tools, and experience to make a rural practice comfortable, is now placing over 70% of its graduates in rural/underserved areas of Washington, as well as California, Oregon, and Texas.
