The 160,000-square-foot, nine-story Clinic and Education Building will enable the dental school to increase its capacity to see patients by up to 40%.

The Texas A&M University College of Dentistry has dedicated its new Clinic and Education Building in Dallas.

The university says the 160,000-square-foot, nine-story facility will enable the dental school to increase under-served patients’ access to care and shift from a traditional disciplined-based approach to a “whole health” educational model.

The  building features nearly 300 dental-chair stations and has the most advanced technology, specialized clinics, clinical support areas, classrooms and study spaces.

It is the first stand-alone building constructed for the dental school since 1950. Patient parking will be available on the first three levels of the new structure.

“Patients and students are at the heart of what we do,” says Lawrence E. Wolinsky, dean of the college. “The new clinical building is truly going to help the college meet the ever-expanding need for reputable patient-centered care in a compassionate environment. Our students will gain a unique learning experience that will benefit them throughout their professional careers.”

As a result of the new facilities, the capacity for patient visits, now about 100,000 per year, is expected to increase by up to 40%.

Construction of the new $127 million facility was completed at the end of 2019.

The architects are Kahler Slater and BRW Architects.
