635 Albany St.
In 2009, the Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM) initiated an Applied Strategic Planning process to strengthen its position as an international leader in dental education, research, patient care, and community service. The outcome of the planning process identified a need to expand and renovate the Dental School’s facilities.
The multi-phased expansion and renovation project, completed in the summer of 2021, provides better quality spaces for the School’s educational and clinical needs. The project expanded the existing 635 Albany Street facility with a 48,000 GSF addition dedicated to clinical education and practice, and 64,000 GSF of the existing building was renovated for patient waiting areas, office, instructional and student gathering space.
All members of the GSDM community benefit from the new facility. For students, a better space improves the learning experience by providing innovative collaboration spaces to prepare them for their careers. For patients, the new space bolsters the School’s efforts to offer care and an experience on par with the best dental practices. For an institution that prides itself on patient-oriented care, this is a critically important outcome. Finally, faculty and staff benefit from improved spaces for teaching and administrative support, along with a layout designed to make interactions with students and patients both easier and more frequent.
