UDM School of Dentistry to Host Community Open House

DETROIT, May 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The new University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry and Clinic will host a community open house on Saturday, May 31 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the new Corktown Campus. The School's Clinic will be offering free dental screenings for community members, as well as oral health awareness and education information. The event is being held in celebration of the School of Dentistry's 75th Anniversary.

Over 211,000 square feet, the School moved in January to its new location, which is more than twice the size. The new facility features a high-tech simulation lab with 100 stations, 190 patient operatories and dedicated areas for pediatric, endodontic, and orthodontic dentistry. Cost for dental care is approximately half the cost of private dentistry. With more than 85,000 patient visits each year, the new location will give UDM the opportunity to serve more patients and accept additional students to the dental program.

The UDM School of Dentistry is one of two in the State of Michigan. One-third of all dentists in Michigan have graduated from the University's Dental School and nearly half of the graduating class remains in Michigan.

Located on UDM's new Corktown Campus at 2700 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, the Dental School and Clinic is one block east of I-96 Jeffries and just minutes from I-94, I-75 and the Lodge Freeways. The UDM School of Dentistry relocated to its new site in January 2008 from its previous location on Outer Drive in Northwest Detroit.

UDM is committed to quality education, service of faith, promotion of justice and compassionate service to persons in need. Accordingly, the university and its students, staff and administration take an active role in strengthening Detroit, through community outreach and partnership with like-minded organizations.

Community outreach and giving back to the community has always been an essential part of a University of Detroit Mercy education. Students from every College and School at UDM provide community outreach to those in need. While the Dental School offers free and low cost services to the underserved and seniors, other services include the Law School's Urban Law Clinic and the Mobile Law Office and the School of Architecture's Urban Design Center to name just a few.

To make an appointment, call the UDM Dental Clinic at: 313-494-6700.

The University of Detroit Mercy is Michigan's largest private Catholic University, with approximately 100 academic majors and programs. Sponsored by the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) and the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas Regional Community of Detroit, the University has campuses located in downtown and northwest Detroit. UDM is one of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities and the largest of 18 Mercy institutions of higher education in the United States.

For the seventh consecutive year, University of Detroit Mercy is listed in the top tier of Midwestern master's universities in the 2008 edition of the U.S. News and World Report's "America's Best Colleges."
