The Campaign for Facilities

Transforming Oral Health

With help from alumni and friends, the next generation of West Virginia dentists and dental hygienists will be trained in radically modernized facilities. We are making monumental structural improvements to transform our space for oral health education and patient care. We strive to renovate, advance, improve, enhance, modernize and innovate.

Capital Campaign for Facilities

Multiphase facility upgrades will require over $10 million in investment.

The project is being executed in three phases:

  • Phase 1 is the creation of offices for Diagnostic Sciences and financial staff from Clinical Affairs.  Expected completion is early Spring 2021.
  • Phase 2 is the renovation of the Urgent Care and Radiology clinics, with expected completion in June 2021.
  • Phase 3 is the renovation of the Reception and Waiting areas with expected completion in early August 2021.
