Fluoridated St. Louis Needs New Dental School

St. Louis Missouri has been fluoridated since 1955 and plans $23 million dental school clinic in St. Louis

Fluoridation was projected to put dentists out of business. But
 "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.
