Dalhousie University’s faculty of dentistry is currently overhauling their entire dental clinic, upgrading everything from patient areas to student labs.
More than 10,000 patients go through Dal’s dental clinic each year, making it one of the busiest clinics in Nova Scotia. Renovations currently taking place will allow for a better experience for patients and students, simulating a more conventional private practice atmosphere, with new and up-to-date equipment.
Dr. Blaine Cleghorn, assistant dean of clinics within the Dalhousie faculty of dentistry, says the half of the old clinic is still being used while the other half is being renovated.
By May of 2017 students and patients will move into the new half, and then renovations will begin on the other half. All of the clinic renovations will be complete by spring of 2018.
“The new clinic design is to try to utilize a small group practice model,” says Cleghorn.
