Orthodontist Gives $4M To East Carolina

A retired North Carolina orthodontist has given East Carolina University $4 million for its new dentistry school.

As thanks for his gift, university trustees voted on Friday to name the new building for the dentistry school after 84-year-old Dr. Ledyard E. Ross.

East Carolina University Chancellor Steve Ballard says the gift comes at a vital time. The new school will admit its first students in the fall of 2011.

University officials say the $4 million gift is one of the largest in the school's history.
