Dan Rahn: Expanding Medicaid Critical for UAMS

Another revenue source will come from dental services. At the end of the month, UAMS will open the UAMS Oral Health Clinic. The center is working toward accreditation for postgraduate residency programs in advanced general dentistry and oral surgery.

The program seeks to have students in dental schools outside of Arkansas provide care in the clinic by next year.

A full dental school at UAMS still is about eight to 10 years away, Rahn said.

That is, of course, if the money is available for the project, he said.
