ALTON — Crews are putting the final touches on Southern Illinois University’s new $11.5 million dental clinic.

The project was announced in 2019 and work began the following year with the demolition of a building which was no longer in use. The Alton Telegraph reports university officials expect the School of Dental Medicine’s new Advanced Care Clinic in Alton to open to students next month.

The clinic is expected to expand the dental school’s offering of care, particularly for children. There’ll be two medical operating suites where students and staff will be able to administer general anesthesia.  

The project’s financing includes grants, university funds and external financing.
