Texas dental school plans new clinic with $2M federal grant

The UT Health San Antonio School of Dentistry received a $2 million federal grant to launch a special care dental clinic. 

The Phil and Karen Hunke Special Care Clinic will serve adults and children with developmental and physical disabilities, according to a Sept. 8 post on the university’s website. 

The grant was awarded by HHS' Health Resources and Services Administration and will last for five years, covering personnel and operational costs of the clinic. 

The clinic is expected to open by January 2024 with seven treatment rooms and five IV sedation suites.
