MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University’s School of Dentistry says it will partner with the Center for Research and Education in Technology to design, build and equip a facility in Morgantown with advanced dental technology available from manufacturers.

According to school officials, the so-called Innovation Center will be open to students, faculty and the state’s private dentists, about 85 percent of them alumni.

It will be available to fourth-year students and simulate a private practice and contain auxiliary equipment for the most recent restorative techniques and digital imaging.

Similar facilities have been opened at Loma Linda University in California and the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

The dental schools’ partner is a national nonprofit consortium of more than 20 dental equipment manufacturers and suppliers providing equipment at no cost.
