The Loma Linda School of Dentistry (LLUSD) has opened the Hugh Love Center for Research and Education in Technology, a state-of-the-art dental clinic that, according to an announcement from the school, will provide dental students with hands-on experience using the latest dental equipment and products for oral health care for the community.
This is the first of a series of planned dental centers being opened by the Center for Research and Education in Technology Inc (CRET) in collaboration with academic institutions. CRET is a nonprofit association of dental industry leaders that partners with academic institutions to develop technology education programs for dental students, dental residents, and dental faculty.
Designed jointly by CRET and LLUSD, the Hugh Love Center for Research and Education in Technology is a private-dental-office styled clinic located within the dental school. The 3,000-square-foot Center features six dental operatories and a three-chair open clinic with donated equipment from CRET corporate members.
The Center was named in honor of LLUSD alumnus, Hugh C. Love, DDS, whose unrestricted gift made the new Center possible.
