Affinia Healthcare, AT Still University evaluating security at dental center after violent incidents

St. Louis-based Affinia Healthcare and A.T. Still University in Kirksville, Mo., are evaluating security measures at its dental center in response to safety concerns from students and employees, KMOV4 reported Feb. 17.

Several windows at the St. Louis dental center were shattered by bullets Feb. 12. Several other service calls have been made in the last year for incidents in the area, including auto thefts, shootings and destruction of property. 

A student at the dental school told the news station that requests for new security measures have not been met. 

"Student, patient and employee safety is always a top priority. The university is currently evaluating additional security options at the Saint Louis Dental Center," Affinia Healthcare and ATSU said in a joint statement.
