UW-RIDE :   The Regional Initiatives in Dental Education (RIDE) program is a specific educational track of the University of Washington School of Dentistry (UWSOD) that trains dentists to meet the needs of rural and under-served populations in the state and region.  The main goal of RIDE is to increase the number of graduates who will choose to practice within rural and under-served communities in Washington.  The RIDE curriculum includes a significant amount of training in rural and under-served areas to expand students’ familiarity and comfort in providing dental care for rural and under-served populations.  NEW Health Programs Association is a direct recipient of the RIDE program.

EWU :  At the NEW Health Program Association's Lake Spokane Clinic, we have the unique opportunity to have senior EWU dental hygiene students complete off-campus rotations with us. The students get to provide dental hygiene services to a variety of patients with direct supervision from our full-time hygienist.   It is an excellent opportunity for the students to have “real world” clinical experience as well as increasing the number of patients that we are able to provide service for.
