The School is organized into three distinct zones: public (patient care), education and simulation, and faculty and staff. The building houses some of the industry’s most advanced equipment and education technology to support the highest quality in patient care, research, and education. Specialized spaces include operatories; an imaging suite; biomaterials laboratory; clinics for oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, endodontics, prosthodontics and periodontics; and a faculty practice clinic. A Learning Resource Center and lounge enhance the student experience and promote collaboration.
