Tuesday morning, Linda Brantner, president and CEO of Delta Dental of
Kansas, announced a joint three-year pledge with the Delta Dental of Kansas
Foundation to the Wichita State University Foundation to assist in
constructing a building to house WSU's Advanced Education in General
Dentistry program.

The program, a one- to two-year residency program for dentists that expands their clinical and practical knowledge, will be the only dental education program in Kansas.

The facility will be located on north Oliver Street, immediately south of
the Eugene M. Hughes Metropolitan Complex.

"Delta Dental of Kansas, in partnership with our foundation, has pledged a
joint gift of $3 million to be distributed over a three-year period to
assist in the construction of a free-standing building to house WSU's AEGD
program," said Brantner. "At Delta Dental we want to ensure all Kansans have access to quality dental care."

With access to oral health care for many rural and low-income Kansans
remaining an unmet need, WSU is working in cooperation with community
partners to meet that need.

By offering a broader range of clinical experiences with state-of-the-art
technology, more dentists will come to Kansas to expand their education.
