In September, the Graduate Periodontics Clinic opened. In October, the Bien Air PAES and Delta Dental Integrated Special Care clinics opened. And earlier this November, the Victors West (Maize) predoctoral education clinic opened.
Each clinic features new dental chairs, operatories, dental equipment, and technology. The school calls their opening a major milestone in the Blue Renew project, now halfway through its construction schedule. Blue Renew calls for additional clinic renovations as well as a 48,000-square-foor addition in the former courtyard of the school.
“There are many people to thank and not only the Blue Renew team, but also our fabulous Dental Informatics team who turned around computer installations on short order, our Patient Services team who newly stocked all the units and tested equipment, our industry partners who accommodated multiple schedule changes, and our maintenance and custodial groups who cleaned and prepped the areas,” said dean Laurie McCauley.
The next wave of clinic renovations and the and the courtyard addition is expected to be completed in the first half of 2021.
