Cherokee Nation celebrates opening of another dental clinic

The Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma is making it easier for members to obtain dental services.

The tribe opened a new dental clinic at the AMO Health Center in Salina. Previously, residents had to drive an hour to the W.W. Hastings Hospital in Tahlequah.

"There’s a lot of people that can’t make it to Tahlequah for dental, so it’s good for the whole area,” Allen Summerlin, the dental clinic supervisor and dentist, told The Cherokee Phoenix.
