Dr. Goldstein and Dr. Jaffe are proud graduates of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. The United States is home to 13 of the top 25 schools according to the 2018 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). The University of Michigan earns a distinguished spot among them. The university was given the top spot among U.S. dentistry schools in the United States. It came in third compared to schools across the world.
A Bright Future for Students at the University of Michigan
The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research gave the University of Michigan $16.3 million in 2017 – the highest amount given to any other institutions in the U.S.
A focus on head and neck cancer, childhood caries prevention, and lost tissue regeneration have pushed recent projects into exciting directions. A Dental Postgraduate Program in Regenerative Dentistry was launched this year. The 12-month course trains students on tissue engineering and biomaterials applied to tissue regeneration.
Major Renovations Begin at the University
If that wasn’t enough, new students might be enticed by the recent renovation project that began this fall. A major update and addition are in the works with a $140 million budget. It will include expanding facilities for teaching, researching, and serving patients. Around half of the current structures on campus will be renovated with an addition of around 48,000 square feet.
The construction work won’t prevent the school from operating. Phases are planned to ensure that students can continue attending classes. The project is expected to be complete by 2022.
