Texas A&M College of Dentistry Dedicates New Facility in Dallas

The Texas A&M College of Dentistry dedicated a new, $127 million Clinic and Education Building in Dallas near Baylor University Medical Center on Monday.

The nine-story, 157,756-square-foot building will serve as a “patient-centered” clinical facility for A&M dentistry students, with nearly 300 dental-chair stations, specialized clinics, classrooms, and study spaces.

As the largest oral healthcare provider in North Texas, the college provides 100,000 patient visits per year, including for low-income and under-served patients throughout the region.

“As one of only three dental schools in the state, the Texas A&M College of Dentistry has an important role in educating dentists to serve the needs of Texans in the future,” said John Sharp, Texas A&M University chancellor. “This new facility will enable Texas A&M to continue providing cutting-edge dental care.”

Construction of the facility, located near the college’s existing location on Gaston Avenue, is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2019.
