A partnership between Red Bird Dental Clinic Inc, in Beverly, Kentucky, and the University of Louisville (UofL) School of Dentistry has expanded the clinic’s ability to serve more residents of Clay, Bell and Leslie counties.

Since the collaboration started more than 1 year ago, UofL dental students have provided care for almost 600 patients, and completed nearly 700 procedures for many who are uninsured or under-insured.

“The clinical experience at Red Bird enhances the education of our students with enriching cultural and clinical practice experiences that will make them compassionate, exceptional dental health care providers,” says Gerry Bradley, BDS, MS, DrMedDent, dean of UofL School of Dentistry.

The use of a mobile dental unit funded by Avēsis increases the clinic’s ability to serve those without access to care. The clinic also receives support from individual donors like McGuinn, along with the Good Samaritan Foundation and Delta Dental of Kentucky.
