McGill opens new dentistry facility

September 5, 2014

McGill University is celebrating the opening of its new Faculty of Dentistry facility, bringing pre-clinical and clinical training, community-based research, and administrative operations under one roof for the first time in the faculty’s history. The new $18.3-M facility provides modern clinical facilities and active learning spaces for students, and will serve as a hub for the outreach and collaboration initiatives conducted by dentistry students and researchers. McGill currently operates 4 satellite clinics that provide affordable and free oral health care to Montreal’s low-income population. “The challenge is to anticipate the needs of our students and patients for the next 20 years. I believe that in creating this new facility, the Faculty is meeting this challenge and we will have a greater impact on the community than ever before,” says Jeffrey Myers, Associate Dean Clinical Affairs.
