Tooth decay: Disease of disparity

Say, "Ahhhhh." This spring, the College of Dentistry celebrates an anniversary, marking a 125-year tradition of education, research, and outreach. Photo by Michael Kanellis.

In early March, 25 students from the College of Dentistry set up clinic in two local Wal-Marts and provided free oral health screenings and flouride varnishes to more than 200 children.

Many of the children, some as old as 8, had never seen a dentist. But children aren't the only ones at risk.

Michael Kanellis, assistant dean for patient care in the college, explains how the college reaches patients of all ages who need care.



Several major steps over the next three years aim to improve gender equity on the University of Iowa campus.
