The DDS program provides students with the tools, technology and rich educational experience to achieve their goals and become well-rounded dental professionals.
Dental students learn in the 3M Foundation Dental Simulation Clinic, a facility designed to create a realistic clinic environment. It helps the students learn the eye-hand coordination and manual dexterity skills, techniques and procedures they’ll use to treat patients by practising restorative procedures on simulated patients. Each workstation is equipped with a lifelike mannequin, complete with a head, shoulders, and realistic oral cavity—flexible jaws, lips and cheeks, and a full complement of teeth.
