Facilities

The Department of Restorative Sciences is supported with significant facilities in the School of Dentistry.

Academic classrooms, shared all Departments, provide didactic learning areas for the undergraduate and graduate students.

Pre-clinical spaces provide areas for simulation learning of basic skills of operative dentistry as well as fixed and removable prosthodontics on mannequins. Also, dental laboratory skills are practiced in this area. Each student has a work station surrounding a central teaching area supported with modern audio-visual and computer-based resources.

Clinical spaces supported by the Department for the DMD students comprise the second and first floor clinics and include the limited care clinic, treatment planning clinic, dental radiology, comprehensive care clinic, and the prosthodontic bays. More than 90 dental operatories are maintained in these clinics.

The clinical program is supported with dental laboratory spaces and includes three full-time dental technicians. The laboratory spaces are in renovation scheduled for completion in mid-2014 providing state of the art facilities for the emerging digital trends in dentistry and also providing needed clinical storage for the DMD students.
