Delta Dental announces $2M for UAMS clinic
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation says it will contribute a total of $2 million toward an oral health clinic at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
The clinic is part of UAMS' Center for Dental Education, which is working toward accreditation for a postgraduate residency program in advanced general dentistry and oral surgery. The clinic opened earlier this month in Little Rock.
UAMS says there are now five treatment rooms open with plans to expand that to 18 by 2014.
Once the expansion is complete, the clinic will be named the Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation Oral Health Clinic.
UAMS says the clinic will provide dental care to Arkansans while also giving dental residents the opportunity to gain clinical experience.
