Indiana University South Bend is going through an exciting time in its history. Facilties and programs are expanding to meet the needs of our community. The campaign to fund the Dental Education Wing is part of that future. We need the help of alumni and friends to complete the campaign to make that future our reality.
A properly equipped clinic is but one of the spokes in a wheel that contributes to the success of the program, but is an integral part of that wheel and one that must meet current standards for providing care.

As an important part of their education, students treat patients in the dental clinic. This clinic not only provides a learning environment for students, but provides preventive services (cleanings, fluoride treatments, x-rays, sealants) at a very nominal fee to the public. During their clinical education, each student in the program treats approximately eighty-five patients and collectively treats over 2500 patients annually through the spring, summer, and fall semesters.
For over 40 years, IU South Bend has provided quality education for dental team members. The dental hygienists who will obtain current knowledge at the new IU South Bend facility will help meet the needs of the health care industry and improve access to oral health in our communtiy.

The foundation for providing quality dental hygiene education and the best possible care to patients is a clinic with modern dental operatories, equipment and technolgoy. Because the Dental Hygiene program's history of excellence in teaching and service to the public, it is essential to keep this record by making sure a new fully equipped, state-of-the-art clinic becomes a reality.
