New Location for Dental Center

Regis College is pleased to announce the future location of the Regis College Dental Center. A lease has been signed for 1432 Main Street in Waltham. This location, near the Market Basket plaza, offers easy access to Route 128 and public transportation. It is just 3.5 miles from our Weston campus and transportation will be provided through our shuttle service. Our hope is to be ready to welcome patients in the new location this fall. We are in the process of obtaining all of the required permits and regulatory permissions in order to begin construction of the new space. In the meantime, the clinic will remain open on our Regis Newton campus.
