More Healthy Smiles

On the same day that nearly 400 children received free care from Case Western Reserve dental school faculty and students, the Cleveland Planning Commission was taking a close look at the school’s proposed new clinic for oral health.

The building’s schematic got the city’s OK, and faculty and students saw a whole lot of grateful smiles.

The 134,000 square-foot dental clinic will be just north across Chester Avenue from the main Health Education Campus building. Three stories high and with 120 parking spaces, the structure will provide patients far easier access to care than the current clinic, which itself it difficult to find—to say nothing of convenient parking.

Beyond routine cleanings and care, the new building also will provide space for more specialized offerings, among them endodontics, oral surgery, and craniofacial care.
