DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Big news has been announced for the city of Dothan.

At the Houston County Republican Women’s meeting Thursday, Senator Donnie Chesteen said the University of Alabama Birmingham will have a dentistry school located in the Circle City.

Dothan is known as a ”medical hub” and he believes this will help future dentists and those who live in rural areas.

Right now, there are not a lot of details about the project, they are still having conversations about it, but Senator Chesteen promises more information will be coming soon possibly in the next few weeks.
