ECU Trying To Get A Dental School

It's something this area needs and officials at East Carolina University are trying to get it, a dental school. Michael Lewis, Vice Chancellor of the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina says the school has been studying the possibility of bringing a dental school to Greenville for about four years. Lewis says studies show Eastern Carolina is in desperate need of more dentists, particularly minority ones. Lewis says right now an advisory board is compiling information to be presented to the board of trustees down the road.
