The grant will allow SIU SDM to annually serve an additional 550 pediatric patients requiring oral health care services performed under general anesthesia.  In addition, SIU SDM currently manages approximately 35,000 patient visits annually at its clinics in Alton and East St. Louis. Students in the program also provide oral health care screenings and education through off-campus community outreach events.
