AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo was LIVE at the University of Michigan Dental School for their Renovation & Expansion Celebration. Blue Renew is the major renovation and expansion at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, with construction beginning in fall 2018, updates and expands the school’s state-of-the-art facilities for teaching dental students, serving patients from around Michigan and conducting world-class research that advances the dental profession. Dental school organizers estimated that more than 1,000 people toured the school during the two-hour open house Friday afternoon, with about 250 people joining school and university leaders for the ribbon-cutting program that followed.
