A raised flooring system with interlocking vinyl flooring was used to run utilities to the dental units.
The new simulation equipment has a smaller footprint, and more units can be added within the same space. The raised flooring enables the lab to add infrastructure for any future equipment with minimal disruption.
The laboratory can easily add equipment to expand the dental program, meet the needs of the university and provide students with the latest advancements in dental technology.
