Excellence for Endodontics Campaign for New Clinic

The Excellence for Endodontics Campaign seeks contributions for a newly renovated endodontic clinic. Relocated to the fifth floor and named the DENTSPLY Tulsa Endodontics Clinic, the clinic provides enhanced training for future generations of general dentists and endodontists.

The clinic is one of the busiest facilities in the school. Dental students and residents provide surgical and non-surgical endodontic care to about 2,500 patients annually. Clinicians provide advanced endodontic therapies such as implants, pulp regenerative therapy and IV sedation. Aided by the operating microscope with video capabilities, the clinic will act as a classroom where students and residents obtain a valuable portion of their education leading to board certification. An important aspect will be the one-on-one faculty supervision of student procedures.

The renovation provides larger resident rooms, six state-of-the-art treatment suites for D.M.D. students, x-ray capability in the treatment areas, and cubicles for practicing on extracted teeth. Major improvements have been made to the sterilization, inventory storage and auditing areas. Remaining opportunities include the waiting area ($100,000), resident conference room ($50,000), and treatment suites ($25,000). All gifts of $1,000 will be recognized on the clinic donor wall.

Contributions may be made by check, credit card, or stock. Please make your check payable to: UAB Excellence for Endodontics Campaign and mail to SDB 214, 1720 2nd Ave. S. Birmingham, AL 35294-0007.
