Digital Dentistry at UIC

Advanced Specialties for All Needs in One Place
The College of Dentistry offers all dental specialty care practices – all in one place. We have [x] faculty and residents in six advanced specialty clinics including Endodontics, Endodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics and Prosthodontics. Many of our faculty also provide care through a Faculty Practice, as well as teach in the college. Also, many of our faculty serve as researchers who lead scientific investigations that advance the methods used in our clinics.

The College of Dentistry has transformed the way we perform many dental treatments through advanced digital technologies and methods. Through the use of digital tools and workflows we offer patients the highest levels of precision and accuracy, and minimally invasive methods – which translates to much less time spent at the dentist, and more comfort. For instance, we can reduce the time spent to receive a new crown from several days – to a matter of hours. For more complex restorations and surgeries, we can pre-plan and coordinate the entire treatment virtually across multiple specialties, and even provide restorative and surgical services in the same appointment – so patients get the advantage of expert consultation and care, quickly and easily.

The College of Dentistry uses imaging and diagnostics at the leading edge of patient care. From two-dimensional x-rays to 3D digital imaging (CAD/CAM) we offer patients the benefits of less radiation exposure, and the advantage of coordinated diagnosis and treatment planning. The College of Dentistry uses integrated digital workflows for streamlined care planning, not only between the College of Dentistry specialty clinics, but also with other healthcare providers. This means less time spent getting x-rays from specialists in multiple locations.
