The Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine formally dedicated the Advanced Care Wing of the Main Clinic in Alton in September 2006. The new facility added 24 new graduate operatories to the Main Clinic. Clinical care offered at the Advanced Care Wing includes advanced restorative dentistry, as well as care to medically compromised patients.
The Implant Program is based in the Advanced Care Wing. Fellows will spend the majority of their time here, treating patients and supervising implant procedures performed by AEGD residents and undergraduate students.
