SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY EDWARDSVILLE SCHOOL OF DENTAL MEDICINE ADDITION
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
As the only dental school outside of Cook County, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s School of Dental Medicine provides more than 8,000 patients a year with excellent dental care and more than 200 students with state-of-the-art training opportunities.
- The school’s main facility in Alton, IL, provides students with an excellent facility for clinical education; however, the in-demand program was rapidly outgrowing the existing space. To meet the expanding needs Woolpert provided programming and full design services for a 20,000-square-foot addition to the campus. The addition provides new simulation lab facilities, which include new laboratory space and a physical fitness area, and houses 60 student workstations for full upper-body torso simulation and four teaching workstations with wet labs. The new addition also provides dispensing, x-ray, castings and ceramic reconstruction areas.
