Dental students to staff new clinic in St. Louis
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A new dental clinic in St. Louis will seek to fill a significant need, providing care for many people who haven't had access to dental care.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the $23 million clinic opens Monday. It's a partnership between Kirksville-based A.T. Still University and Affinia Healthcare. Once fully operational, it's expected to host at least 60 dentists at any one time.
The partnership calls for A.T. Still University to supply third- and fourth-year dental students. Affinia Healthcare will perform administrative functions. Uninsured people will be among the clients.
