The dental clinic hopes to help around 2,000-3,000 kids each year, providing a crucial service to families with sick children. It is the only nonprofit clinic in the state, residing inside a cancer treatment facility, and will aid in reducing the wait time patients face. The clinic has state-of-the-art dental technology and will have to offer students a chance to get experience. Roseman University and its Cure 4 The Kids Foundation aim to ease the struggles that these children and their families face with this project and make it easier for them to get treatment. (News3LV)
