U of New England, Maine Behavioral Healthcare partner on dental care for people with developmental disabilities

The University of New England College of Dental Medicine is partnering with Maine Behavioral Healthcare's Center of Excellence in Autism and Developmental Disorders to provide dental care to people with developmental disabilities.

The partnership was formed to provide care to those with conditions that may make it more challenging for patients to receive care. Patients will be able to receive care at an upcoming dental clinic at the new Autism and Developmental Disorders Treatment Center in Portland, Maine, that will open in August.

UNE students will spend half a day at the clinic providing treatment under the supervision of faculty. They will have the opportunity to spend a full day at the clinic depending on student scheduling, need and faculty availability. Services will include oral hygiene instruction, examinations, cleanings and fillings.

UNE and Maine Behavioral Healthcare are both based in Portland.
