Kahler Slater Leads Design of New School of Dental Medicine at Bluefield College

September 25, 2013

Kahler Slater will lead the programming, planning and design for a new School of Dental Medicine at Bluefield College. Kahler Slater will partner with local Virigina firm Thompson & Litton on this project.

Bluefield College is establishing the new dental program in collaboration with the Tazewell County (Va.) Board of Supervisors and the Tazewell County Industrial Development Authority (IDA). It will address the growing shortage of dentists and other dental care professionals in Southwestern Virginia and Central Appalachia and begin to fill the area’s understaffed clinics with the professionals needed to provide residents with necessary oral care.
