IHS website lists employment opportunities for dental professionals
Rockville, Md.—The Indian Health Service Division of Oral Health offers a limited number of employment opportunities for graduating dentists and dental hygienists.
Now is the time to apply for careers providing dental care to American Indians and Alaska Natives in some of the most scenic areas of the country, said Capt. Timothy Lozon, D.D.S., Acting Director of the IHS Division of Oral Health.
"As the number of opportunities in private practice continues to shrink in the current recession, the financial stability of a government career has greater appeal for dental graduates starting out in the field of dentistry," said Capt. Lozon. "We're looking for exceptional individuals with an interest in public health service with a sense of adventure who would enjoy working in the professionally stimulating and personally rewarding DOH environment."
