An annual scholarship is offered by the MSDA Foundation to dental students who have a heart for service and have demonstrated a history of excellence in both academics and service activities in their communities.


Our scholarship is made possible by R.K Tongue Co., Inc. & Professional Protector Plan for Dentists.


The dental student scholarship helps community minded dental students fund their education expenses.

To improve the public's oral health, we  support the education of today's charitable dental workforce.

Help support the Scholarship Fund to continue the annual gifts we are able to give to dental students and to perhaps increase the number and amounts of the scholarships available.

Scholarship Fund

Our Scholarship is awarded as a partnership between MSDAF, RK Tongue Inc., and PPP. This is a partnership that goes back into the 1950's. Together we are proud to award the largest scholarship available at UMSOD to a student who is making a charitable impact in our community.

2023 Scholarship Recipient

Brian Garner is the 2023 Dental Scholarship recipient!

A little bit about this year's receipient:


"I grew up in Silver Spring, MD and attended undergraduate studies at University of Maryland, College Park. I was raised bilingual, and from an early age developed a dedication to serving the Hispanic community. As I transitioned during college into the beginnings of my dental career, I continued on that dedication and sought out as many Missions of Mercy to participate in as possible. My other career passions include the study of dental sleep medicine and airway health, and hobbies such as soccer, volleyball, and cooking. Above all I hope to be able to leave a lasting impact on my community."
