The UIC Barcelona University Dental Clinic has 88 dentistry booths, all of which are equipped with cutting-edge technology.
88 general booths, including
4 booths for special patient care
19 surgical booths
Conscious sedation booths
Last academic year, the Clinic received around 82,000 visits
The Clinic has two prosthetics laboratories with cutting-edge digital imaging technology, which allows students to practice the latest techniques in all areas of dentistry.
Exclusive laboratory dedicated to CAD-CAM technology. The equipment available in this laboratory includes:
3 milling machines: Lyra, Cerec, Roland
1 ceramic oven
13 intraoral scanners (four 3Shape; one 3M; one Omnicam Cerec; four Carestream; one Primescan; one Itero (temporary loan); one Aadva (temporary loan); and one Medit scanner).
One 3D printer
A variety of design programmes: nine exocad; ten 3shape and two Cerec; four Exoplan; one Simplant and one Implant Studio.
We have built six new laboratories, one of which is dedicated to dentistry research
The pre-clinical laboratory, a technological laboratory, is fitted with 95 dental simulators with phantom models, oral cavities simulation tools, and X-ray and digital radiology equipment for practising dentistry using the Simudont virtual reality simulator. This laboratory allows students to practice dentistry procedures under very real conditions before treating actual patients.
The Faculty of Dentistry also has a dental research laboratory.
For complementary tests, all dental equipment is fitted with intraoral radiology. The centre has two diagnostic imaging rooms for taking panoramic dental X-rays with three CBCT/iCat machines.
Digital technology and implant-prosthetic planning programmes allow students to learn and work with the latest technologies from day one.
Recently acquired virtual reality simulation equipment (Simodont). This addition introduces the element of virtual reality into students' pre-clinical practicums, enhancing their learning and providing this great tool as a new teaching methodology. One step further in innovation and quality education.
Option to stream dentistry treatments and procedures live.
Smart storage for delivering and collecting equipment.
Sterilisation service for medical equipment and instruments.
All resources are up-to-date and the university has agreements with different industries in the sector, thus strengthening ties between industry, universities and RDI.
The technology available to our students helps them gain awareness of the daily reality at a clinic and prepares them in all theoretical and practical aspects of working in the safest and most professional way.
We also have dentistry management software to keep track of students’ and patients’ progress.
