The Department of Care Planning and Restorative Sciences encompasses the areas of operative dentistry, diagnostic sciences and oral medicine as well as the specialties of prosthodontics and oral-maxillofacial radiology. The mission of the department is to integrate these areas into a strong didactic, preclinical and clinical experience for our students with the goal of helping them become knowledgeable and competent general practitioners. The department strives to make all classroom, laboratory and clinical experiences relevant to this goal.
The University of Mississippi School of Dentistry offers an on-site full-service dental laboratory benefiting School of Dentistry patients and our students.
Our state-of-the-art laboratory is staffed with highly skilled technicians that have a combined experience for over 70 years, including 2 certified dental technicians. They provide guidance to the students on their patient cases, as well as fabricate high end fixed and removable prostheses for their patients.

Equipped with today's current technology, such as CAD/CAM and five axis mills, an Ivobase denture injections system and Cerec system, the clinical laboratory is able to meet modern dentistry demands.
