Creighton Dental Students Provide Care to Uninsured

Patient Inquiries: Contact the School of Dentistry call (402) 280-5990

Fourth-year students at Creighton University Medical Center's School of Dentistry are providing dental care to pediatric patients during "Cover the Uninsured Week," April 23-29 at OneWorld Community Health Centers in South Omaha.

For 37 years, Creighton and OneWorld (formerly the Indian Chicano Health Center) have partnered to provide dental care to people with little or no access to these services. With financial assistance from the Urban Area Health Education Center, Creighton dental students interested in working with the underserved began completing clinical rotations at OneWorld in January.
