Robotics in Dental Surgery

Yomi Robotics

Post-graduate students learn using robotic-assisted technology for dental implant procedures. WVU School of Dentistry is one of two U.S. schools using the Yomi, breakthrough dental-implant technology improving accuracy in surgery.

Rural Rotation

Both dental and dental hygiene students must complete at least a six-week rotation at a private, rural dental practice in West Virginia. The partnership, with more than 60 West Virginia dentists, provides students a close look at managing their own offices and treating patients.

Outreach and Advocacy

For even more hands-on experience and to improve the oral health of children and adults across the state, School of Dentistry students must accumulate 100 hours or more of community engagement work prior to graduation.
