Saskatoon – Third- and fourth-year University of Saskatchewan (U of S) dental students will soon begin working with sophisticated new oral health imaging technology, thanks to a $250,000 gift from the College of Dental Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CDSS) and a partnership between the College of Dentistry and Carestream Dental Canada.
The new equipment – a Carestream Dental’s CS 9300 cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) system – brings the latest in dental X-ray technology to students and patients who receive care in the campus teaching clinic.
“This gift provides our students with some of the best oral health imaging technology available,” said Gerry Uswak, dean of the College of Dentistry. “It will enhance our clinical diagnostic teaching and learning to better enable our graduates to provide the best care for their patients.”
