EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – A groundbreaking ceremony for the future Texas Tech Dental Oral Health Clinic will be streamed on Facebook July 28 at 10:00 a.m.

According to a release, students from the Hunt School of Dental Medicine will get clinical experience by practicing on 80 simulation manikins and working at a laboratory for crafting dental appliances with 3D scanners.

The clinic will be equipped with 130 treatment chairs and will offer cheaper and more accessible dental care for the public.

The ceremony on Tuesday will feature guests from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and include a special announcement.
