CLEVELAND — Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University are continuing to enhance their joint Health Education Campus with the completion of a new dental clinic as well as the Newton Avenue Park. 

The 132,000-square-foot dental clinic is located directly across from the Sheila and Eric Samson Pavilion, which just made its debut earlier this month. It will give residents far easier access to dental care than the school's existing location. 

About 19,000 patients seek treatment at the school’s current clinic each year—more than 11,000 of the of them Cleveland residents. 

“This dental clinic represents an enormous opportunity for students and patients alike,” Case Western Reserve President Barbara R. Snyder said in a statement. “It gives both access to state-of-the-art space, technology and equipment, which will expand the services provided and reduce the number of visits required to complete certain procedures.”

The new dental clinic will be open to patients on June 3. 

The 28,000-square-foot Newton Avenue Park is located next to the Newton Apartments on East 97th Street. It includes playground equipment, a walking trail, and plenty of green space. The Famicos Foundation, a local nonprofit community organization, partnered with CWRU and Cleveland Clinic for the park project.
