Health Professional Shortage Area Dental Care

This dataset shows Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) in geographic areas with shortages of dental health providers. The Health Resource and Service Administration (HRSA) Data Warehouse (HDW) extracts HPSA data from the Shortage Designation Management System (SDMS), which is the transactional source system of record for all HPSA disciplines. This dataset is made available for a subscription according to the data refresh cycle indicated on the Data Marketplace page.

Description

The Division of Policy and Shortage Designation (DPSD) in the Health Resource and Service Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) develops shortage designation criteria and uses them to decide whether or not a geographic area or population group is a Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA), Medically Underserved Area (MUA), or Medically Underserved Population (MUP). More than 34 federal programs depend on the shortage designation to determine eligibility or as a funding preference. About 20 percent of the U.S. population resides in primary medical care HPSAs. HPSAs may have shortages of primary medical care, dental, or mental health providers; may be urban or rural areas; population groups; or medical or other public facilities.
