      I know there is an dental public health association in the US, but I don't remember neither the exact name nor the website, but you can Google it if you want.

      As for work, I guess you could find work in the academic area, goverment institutions, international health organizations, such as the WHO, etc.

      Do a search on the dental forum, maybe you could get more info there.

        Hi,
        Doing DPH would be good if you do not have any plans of getting into a dental school.
        DPH people do have positions like researchers and like. It depends on your likes...if you like clinical practice better to get a DMD. But if you like working with groups and interested in related research, you might be on the right path.
        You can give a Google search to find out more.
        Hope this helps
