Georgia State University administrators, students and community partners gathered on Nov. 28, 2022, for the ceremonial groundbreaking of a $6.3 million dental hygiene clinic located at the university’s Perimeter College Campus in Dunwoody.  

Construction on the 7,904 square-foot facility will house 20 operatories and give students in Perimeter’s Dental Hygiene Program opportunities to train using advanced equipment and technology. The college’s existing clinic was built in the 1970s and has 20 smaller operatories that will go offline once the new clinic is complete.

An extra five treatment operatories, added during the pandemic, will become permanent and will give the program a total of 25 dental chairs to provide oral health services to Georgia State faculty, staff and students and the public.

Georgia State President M. Brian Blake, Ph.D., M.S., celebrated the groundbreaking with more than 100 university administrators, faculty, staff, students and community members.

The new clinic is scheduled for completion in fall 2023 and will have a guest reception area, radiology and dental radiograph rooms and larger clinical operatories.
