University of New England to open dental school in 2013
from The Portland Press Herald
The University of New England is moving forward with plans to open what would be northern New England's only college of dental medicine in the fall of 2013. UNE announced that it has been awarded $3.5 million from the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention for its proposed Portland-based dental school and teaching clinic. The funding was authorized by Maine voters last November as part of a $5 million bond to increase access to dental care in Maine. UNE, which already had been working to develop the school, submitted the only application for the funds. The state funding, along with a $2.3 million commitment from Northeast Delta Dental, will be used to help startup costs associated with opening the College of Dental Medicine in fall 2013.
