Mission Statement

Dental Health Aide Training Program


DENTEX is an Alaska based program that educates
dental health aide therapists to provide dental care to
Alaska Native communities.

DENTEX is a collaboration between the Alaska Native Health Consortium and the University of Washington School of Medicine Physician Assistant Training Program, MEDEX Northwest. DENTEX is committed to training Alaska Native dental health professionals to practice dental therapy with dentist supervision. The program provides a narrowly focused, competency-based, primary care curriculum that emphasizes community level dental disease prevention for the underserved
Alaska Native populations. The curriculum incorporates innovative public health related preventive and clinical strategies to address the vast unmet dental needs of the
Alaska Native population.
