Dental care may be provided in traditional brick-and-mortar dental clinics, on-board mobile dental units, and/or in other non-traditional models such as lap-to-lap in daycare centers, or bedside in nursing homes.

This Clinical Title series faculty position will be under the supervision of the UK North Fork Valley Community Health Center (NFVCHC) Dental Director.

The individual will also develop an area of scholarship that is commensurate with their other responsibilities. As the regional dental program continues to grow and develop, there may be other activities and duties assigned that would fit with the University’s pillars of education, research, service, and engagement.
