Children's Wisconsin raises $1.7M for dental center expansion

Milwaukee-based Children's Wisconsin raised $1.7 million to support an expansion of its dental center.

The hospital raised $700,000 to meet a $1 million challenge grant from the Delta Dental of Wisconsin Foundation, according to a July 19 news release.

Part of the money will be used to expand the organization's residency program and fund training to support care for patients with special needs. 

The majority of the funds will go toward a new dental office on the hospital's Milwaukee campus. The new center will feature 19 exam chairs, up from 13 at the hospital's current center. It will also include a low sensory waiting area and exam rooms. 

Construction for the clinic is expected to begin at the end of this year with an opening in 2025.
