New VA dental clinic opens in Hines, Illinois
Hines, Ill.—Officials from the U.S. Department of the Veterans Affairs came together last month to cut the ribbon on a new dental clinic at the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital just outside Chicago.
The hospital renovated a floor to create a spacious, modern clinic three times the size of the old clinic, where more than 500 patients receive care each year. “Our new clinic allows us to co-locate services like digital imaging, head and neck CT scans, anaplastology and a new prosthetic dental lab,” said Dr. Jerry Kohen, chief of Hines Dental Service. “It is the ideal setup to provide our patients with top quality dental care.”
