Architecture Overview:

RDG and Creighton University began planning for the future of the School of Dentistry in 2006 with the assessment of existing facilities and a visioning retreat that assessed the potential opportunities to better serve the University, students, and the community. Based upon capital and a long term operational proforma, a new facility was deemed the most beneficial option. With a strong focus on visual connectivity to the community, this new facility became a beacon for the neighborhood with the opportunity to increase capacity from 12,000 to 15,000 patients served per year, expanding their impact with quality care. The four-level, state-of-the-art, 267,000 SF facility utilizes telemedicine and active learning environments in addition to the traditional didactic teaching pedagogy. Included are 138 adult clinic operatory chairs; 10 surgery and six acute care operatories with provision for 24/7 care services; 13 faculty practice operatories; and 15 pediatric/orthodontic operatories. Energy efficient glazing systems, an external sunscreen, and a motorized sun shading device controlled by the building automation system assist in maintaining a climate-controlled environment.
