Texas A&M dental school dedicates site for new clinical facility in Dallas

October 25, 2017

Turning: Dr. Lawrence Wolinsky, Texas A&M College of Dentistry dean, prepares for the "dirt turning" portion during the Oct. 23 dedication of the university's new clinic and education building in Dallas. The 157,756-square-foot, nine story building will serve as a patient-centered clinical facility for Texas A&M dentistry students, featuring nearly 300 dental chair stations, advanced technology, specialized clinics, classrooms and study spaces.  Located in an area considered dentally underserved by the Health Resources and Services Administration, the college treates low-income and underserved patients throughout the region. Construction of the new $127-million facility is scheduled for completion fall 2019. Photos provided by Texas A&M University College of Dentistry
Dedication: Texas A&M University and state officials turn dirt during the Oct. 23 dedication of a new clinical facility in Dallas. Approximately $72 million of the facility's estimated cost came from approval for bond authority that the Health Science Center received from the Texas Legislature during the 2015 session. The new facility will allow the dental school to increase enrollment by 25 percent, which officials hope can address the shortage of oral health care providers in the state.
