The University of Minnesota (Univ. of Minn.) School of Dentistry’s Special Healthcare Needs Clinic has received a $100,000 grant to cover updates at the facility.

A dental education and innovations grant from the Minnesota Department of Health will support technological and facility needs to improve efficiency in diagnosis and treatment planning and increase accessibility for older adults and patients with complex medical conditions, including developmental and physical disabilities.

The money will allow the clinic to house its own panoramic x-ray and other imaging units, adding accessibility for patients in wheelchairs. Also, the grant will support bringing more learners into the clinic.
