Temple University Dental Students Benefit from State-of-the-Art Digital Lab

Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry has unveiled a cutting-edge 1,000-square-foot digital lab that is revolutionizing dental education. According to the sourcethis high-tech facility is providing students with advanced training opportunities using the latest technology in dentistry.

The dean of the Kornberg School of Dentistry, Amid Ismail, emphasized the importance of incorporating contemporary technology into dental education. He stated, “The field of digital dentistry is growing very quickly and we are joining it in a big way with this lab. This is a model for dental education.”

The digital lab represents a significant investment by the dental school, totaling over $4 million. It boasts 30 digital stimulators equipped with haptic systems that provide virtual feedback. Additionally, students have access to simulators that allow them to work on 3D teeth models and experience realistic tooth drilling sensations.

Geraldine Weinstein, clinical professor and director of digital education and practice at Temple University, highlighted the benefits of digital technology in teaching students. She explained how scanners and state-of-the-art tools enable students to create crowns, dentures, and restorations more effectively. Weinstein added, “I think these are great tools for teaching and for them to understand and learn. It’s great because with the software you can explain things much better.”

Alexandru Donos, a third-year dentistry student at Temple University, expressed his appreciation for the lifelike training environment provided by the new laboratory. He said, “The new laboratory gives us a good environment to apply what we have learned in courses and teaching conferences. It has everything a student needs to practice before going into the clinic to work with patients.”

The digital lab’s inauguration in May coincided with the Kornberg School of Dentistry’s 160th anniversaryshowcasing the institution’s commitment to innovation throughout its history. Ismail remarked, “Being on the cutting edge is really part of what Temple Dental School is about.”

With over 30,000 patients treated annually, many from North Philadelphia, the Kornberg School aims to enhance patient care through this new technology. Ismail believes that the lab’s digital advancements will result in more accurate diagnoses, faster treatments, and ultimately lower costs for patients. He stated, “Our goal is to do what is best for our patients in North Philadelphia, and in the process, we educate dentists who are compassionate and competent.”

This state-of-the-art digital lab at Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry represents a significant milestone in dental education. By integrating advanced technologies into their curriculum, Temple dental students are equipped with valuable skills that prepare them for successful careers while benefiting their future patients.
