PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The University of New England has opened its new dental school, the first in northern New England.
This week the school formally dedicated its Oral Health Center in Portland, which is the clinical home of UNE's College of Dental Medicine teaching clinic and dental simulation facility.
The inaugural class of 64 includes 22 students from Maine, five from New Hampshire and four from Vermont. The rest come from 16 other states and Canada.
The school year began at the end of August, but the building wasn't formally dedicated until Wednesday.
