| "We definitely recognize there is a huge unmet need for dental schools and oral health care in the [St. Louis] area," Dr. Chris Halliday, inaugural dean of the dental school, said. |
The school expects to hire 61 staff members at the clinic. The average salary of the clinic staffers will be $32,000, according to Phelps. Grace Hill will run the clinic's daily operations with plans to bring in about 10 dentists to work at the clinic, according to Phelps.
