Univ. at Buffalo launches rural dentistry program

The University at Buffalo (UB) School of Dental Medicine has launched a new rural dentistry pilot program that will bring dental care to underserved regions in the area.

New York's Legislative Commission on Rural Resources helped introduce the program, which will expand existing services into additional counties.

"The UB School of Dental Medicine is excited to participate in this program that will expand access to oral healthcare, and increase dental student awareness of rural health issues," said Michael Glick, DMD, professor and dean of the dental school, in a press release. "We are educating a group of future healthcare professionals, some of whom will ideally choose to practice and live in rural communities"
