The Dental Education Loan Repayment Program (DELRP) provides loan repayment funds to general and pediatric dentists who agree to practice in a Dental Health Professional Shortage Area (DHPSA) in Texas.

- Provide at least twelve consecutive months of general or pediatric dental services in an area that is underserved with respect to dental care
- Submit a completed application, agreeing to meet the conditions of loan repayment through the program.
