One of the biggest obstacles standing in the way of many Americans gaining access to the dental care they need is a lack of dentists in certain areas. It's not easy for individuals to regularly visit an oral care professional when it requires long-distance traveling, which is why it's necessary to have dentists readily available in every area.
In response to this need, The University of New England (UNE) in Maine decided that the school needed a college of dental medicine. While they are still trying to collect all of the funds, the university has already garnered enough support to schedule the dental school to be open by 2013.
The need for more dentists is something that Maine seems to recognize, since many of the funds were allocated by the state's Department of Health and Human Services, and approved by voters during 2010 elections.
“We appreciate that Maine recognizes the critical need to educate dentists for the people of our state. As the largest health care work force provider for Maine, UNE is fully prepared to create an innovative state-of-the-art education facility that will allow future dentists to be trained as part of a team of health care providers," said UNE President Danielle Ripich.
