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 edu
