Another community will have something to smile about when the ECU Dental School announces its next location for a service learning center Wednesday.
The ECU Dental School centers are being strategically placed in areas of the state that are underserved when it comes to dental services. The centers will be staffed by faculty members of the dental school along with hygienists and other staff members. Fourth-year dental students and residents will train at the centers. So far, centers have been announced in Ahoskie, Elizabeth City and Sylva.
Wednesday's announcement will take place in Lillington in Harnett County. A press release from ECU says several members of the General Assembly from Harnett, Lee, Johnston and Cumberland counties have been invited.
