The UNMC College of Dentistry is at the forefront of dental education. With small class sizes, nationally renowned faculty and state-of-the-art technology, our unique learning environment promotes our students’ success.

The following learning spaces were completed in October 2019. Take the virtual tour of the new clinical and virtual simulation laboratory and digital design studio. Download brochure.


Clinical and Virtual Simulation Laboratory 

In the 5,500-square-foot, 64-station clinical and virtual simulation laboratory, students learn the latest clinical techniques and skills through clinical simulations and virtual dental trainers which use simulation technology to achieve a high level of realism. Cutting-edge 3D, virtual reality and haptics technology allow students to navigate and manipulate virtual clinical environments.

Join second-year dental student Lotte Sjulin as she shows Chancellor Gold the college's new clinical and virtual simulation lab.

Join Dean Guthmiller for a behind-the-scenes look at the college's cutting-edge learning technology. 



Digital Design Studio

In the 700-square-foot, 15-station digital design studio, students use the latest CAD/CAM technology and an equipment studio with milling machines and 3D printers to design dentures and restorations. Students gain cutting-edge digital dentistry skills that will help them reach new levels in their professional careers.

Dean Guthmiller talks with Gregory Bennett, DMD, assistant professor, about how the college's focus on digital dentistry sets us apart from other dental schools.

Dental student Logan Kludt Lawrence shares how the college's cutting-edge learning technology is helping her become an extraordinary oral health care professional.
