ATSU-ASDOH celebrates unveiling of Special Needs Dental Clinic

March 7, 2013
Posted In: Faculty & Staff Headlines, University Headlines

On February 23, 2013, A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ATSU-ASDOH) and the King-Chavez Health Center based in San Diego, Calif.,  held its first Special Needs Dental Clinic Open House.

The new center includes a 10-chair dental department with a special unit tailored for adults with special needs and the medically fragile. The special needs dentistry unit is in partnership with ATSU-ASDOH, which helped support the project. Fourth-year dental students will complete rotations at the King-Chavez Health Center, and a faculty member will be on staff.

photo-1ATSU is continuing its mission of serving the underserved through a partnership with the King-Chavez Health Center – a branch of the San Ysidro Health Center (SYHC) also based in San Diego, Calif. SYHC opened the King-Chavez Health Center on Sept. 7, 2012 as a way to expand healthcare to low-income and uninsured residents in a vulnerable population by providing medical, dental, mental health, lab facilities, and radiology under one roof.
