Dugoni School of Dentistry opens new campus for classes

The Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry’s new 395,000-square-foot building in San Francisco held its first classes on July 14.

The seven-story building (155 Fifth Street) underwent two years of renovation to be turned into the campus that now houses all academic programs and dental clinics.

The campus contains flexible classrooms, a state-of-the-art dental simulation laboratory, general and specialty dental clinics for children and adults of all ages, research labs and support spaces. The $151-million campus also houses University programs in audiology, music therapy, food studies and other subjects.

"With the opening of this stunning new facility, we establish ourselves as a true three-city university and make even more of Pacific's outstanding academic programs available to many more students from throughout the region, state and world," said University President Pamela A. Eibeck in a school release.
