— A new Dental Education Center that’s opening at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is part of the medical school’s effort to make more dental care available in the state.

UAMS announced Monday that the center will include an oral health clinic and post-graduate programs for dentists in advanced general dentistry and oral surgery.

Arkansas does not have a dental school and UAMS says the state ranks 50th among states in the number of dentists available per 100,000 in population.

Officials say that the post-graduate program will attract dentists who will be more likely to stay in Arkansas.

UAMS says its overall goal is to attract more dentists to underserved areas in the state.
