MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University officials expect an expansion effort to improve the School of Dentistry’s finances.

The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/1cVBXar ) reports that the dental school has lost $500,000 for each of the past three years. The losses stem from the operation of the school’s dental clinic.

School of Dentistry dean David Felton and WVU Health Sciences Center chief financial officer Wendy King say the dental school is expected to be back on strong financial ground within 18 months.

Felton says the school has moved some programs from the Health Sciences Campus to a new facility at the Suncrest Towne Center. The move has allowed the school to expand the programs’ offerings.

He says the school also is looking for ways to reduce costs.
