The centre will work to keep university dentistry students looped in and up-to-date with the latest global dental technologies and techniques.
Hoping to bring about the future of dental care, Cairo University has just established the MENA region's first teaching centre that's solely dedicated to digital dentistry. Despite the name, digital dentistry doesn’t mean dentistry that can be done over the internet (you’ll still need to get that root canal, most likely), but rather it’s the use of digital technologies and computer-controlled components for more efficient procedures, like computer-assisted implants or 3D printing to create models of the inside of your mouth to help with diagnosis. So close to our Cyberpunk 2077 dreams, and yet, so far...
The centre will work to keep university dentistry students looped in and up-to-date with the latest global dental technologies and techniques. It’s also expected to support Cairo University and Egypt to remain on par with the latest educational, research and treatments in the field.
The centre can accommodate 30 trainees at a time, and it’s equipped with the latest conical radiology devices and modern digital imaging methods, as well as the latest software, such as programmes facilitating dental implants, prosthetics, orthodontics and Dental Cone Beam CT technology.
