The Regional Dental Education Program (RDEP) is a cooperative dental education program between the University of Utah and Creighton University's School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska. There is also an "At Large" tuition reimbursement program.
The last year students were accepted in the RDEP was 2012, since the new University of Utah School of Dentistry opened and accepted new students in 2013.
The RDEP had twenty positions available each year for Utah residents. Ten students admitted to the Creighton program would receive their first year of instruction at the University of Utah and the remainder of their training at the dental school at Creighton University. The ten "At Large" students could be trained at an accredited dental program of their choosing. The program reimbursed student tuition from $15,000 to $16,000 upon the completion of dental training, including graduate programs, if the recipient returned to practice dentistry in the State for a specific time period.
The Regional Dental Education Program is designed to encourage recipients to return to Utah to practice dentistry. Performance measures are delayed because recipients have not graduated yet.
