"The CDSS is proud of its relationship with the University of Saskatchewan, and we share their belief in the importance of training future dental health professionals with the best equipment available," said Dr. Frank Hohn, president of the CDSS, which is the accrediting body for all dentists practicing in the province. "This gift is an investment by dentists and specialists from across the province to help ensure students and their patients benefit from access to some of the leading technology in the field."
"We believe the use of CBCT imaging is essential to the diagnostic training of the next generation of dental practitioners," said Carestream Dental general manager Kim Peterson. "Partnering with the U of S is rewarding for both organizations, and we are excited to support the future of Canadian dentistry through tomorrow's practitioners."
Final calibration and testing of the new equipment is currently underway, and it is expected to be in full operation in the next few weeks.
The U of S College of Dentistry on-campus dental clinic provides learning opportunities for students and clinical care to the community. The college also has a dental outreach clinic which serves the residents of Westside neighbourhoods.
