Meharry Opens New Dental Clinic for Patients Who Cannot Afford Care

Meharry Medical College, the historically black educational institution in Nashville, recently opened a new dental clinic for low-income patients. The clinic was funded in part by a grant from Delta Dental insurance. Free dental care for low-income patients is funded through a grant by the Harry R. Kendall Fund. Dental students provide the care under the supervision of a licensed practitioner.

The first patient at the new dental clinic was a 105-year-old man who was fitted for new dentures.
