It was a year in the making from strategizing and fundraising to event planning and our unveiling, but it all unfolded beautifully and successfully. We are happy so many of you were able to be present. Our new facility campaign has officially begun! Here are a few photos from the special day on October 18th. View more photos here

A Message from Dean Allisonpaul_video_july8.m4v
It gives me enormous pleasure to announce that the University has just signed an agreement with the owners of space at 2001 McGill College, just opposite the Roddick Gates, to lease space and renovate and equip it for the Faculty’s new facility. This facility will include our main undergraduate teaching clinic, our preclinical simulation laboratory, classroom teaching space, meeting rooms, the Dean’s and Student Affairs’ Offices and researchers, staff and students in the Division of Oral Health & Society. This is a truly momentous, historic moment for the Faculty, bringing together the majority of our members in one site for the first time in the Faculty’s history.
Much work has already been done in planning the space and much work remains over the next year as the space is renovated and equipped ready for us to move in during the summer of 2014. As this wonderful project moves forward, I invite you to visit our website where there will be regular updates. In addition, the e-flashes will contain regular information, and in September and into the autumn we will have several events to enable everyone in the Faculty to be informed about the project and ask questions. A highlight will be a big announcement event as part of the Homecoming weekend on October 18th – more information to follow on that.
Of course all the work already done and to be done over the next year has been tremendous and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all students and academic and non-academic staff who have been involved so far and will be as we move forward. I would also like to acknowledge the enormous amount of work done by many people throughout the University to support this Faculty of Dentistry project.
Finally, let me take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful and restful summer and I look forward to working with you all in different ways towards our move to this fantastic new facility.

New Facility Update
A message from Dean Allison
As many of you will know, our Faculty must leave the MGH space we currently occupy by August 31st 2014. The University is currently working hard on our behalf to secure new space for our Faculty adjacent to the main campus. I am happy to report that negotiations are going well and a formal announcement should be forthcoming this spring. In the meantime, in the Faculty, as a team we have been working very hard on the architectural plans for the space, preparing in such a way as to best accommodate the needs of our undergraduate program, graduate training, continuing education and clinical research to continue fulfilling our mission with even greater success. This move not only involves colleagues from the MGH. It is a very exciting opportunity to bring the heart of our Faculty, including clinical and preclinical training, the Dean’s Office, and clinical and public health research all together to one new site, one new home for us all.
Thanks very much to the many people who have been providing essential feedback as we move forward with plans and thanks to Jeff Myers for all his dedicated work in leading this process. Watch this space and other communications to keep up to date with this momentous project for our Faculty.
