ATSU-ASDOH held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Dillenberg Center-PDS Innovation Clinic

on Tuesday, Nov. 6. The PDS Innovation Clinic is a state-of-the-art digital dentistry center where ATSU-ASDOH students and faculty provide cutting-edge patient care. The clinic creates unique educational opportunities for students, while improving access to low-cost, high-quality dental care for community members.

The PDS Innovation Clinic, named for major donor Pacific Dental Services, consists of 11 operatories and a space dedicated to interprofessional collaboration among the dental school and ATSU’s other health professions programs. The facility is the University’s first 100 percent donor-funded initiative.

“The new clinic is an exciting space where students learn to treat patients using the latest technologies for virtual surgical planning, digital impressions, and computer-aided dental designs,” says Jonny Brennan, MD, DMD, ’12, MPH, ’11, associate dean, ATSU-ASDOH. “It also provides a collaborative area where faculty members from various dental specialties explore new, innovative models of care, value-based pay systems, and interprofessional education to bridge the gap with other allied healthcare specialists.”

As ATSU-ASDOH’s fourth dental clinic, the PDS Innovation Clinic will increase the School’s capacity to see patients and streamline workflows around digital processes, while improving quality of services and reducing costs. The School is also home to the ATSU-ASDOH Dental Clinic, which offers primary dental care services, and The Center for Advanced Oral Health, which includes an orthodontic clinic for children and adults and the Dr. Rick Workman Advanced Care Clinic for patients with complex medical needs.
