New Dental Building

The Future of Creighton Dentistry has Begun.

About the Construction Project

The School of Dentistry has announced that it will respond to the growing needs of the dental profession, the Omaha community and our students by building a larger facility. The future home of the School, located on Cuming Street between 21st and 22nd streets, will enhance the ability to offer a top-notch, clinically excellent dental education. Ground was broken in September 2016 and the project is slated for completion in 2018.

The new facility will position the School to recruit talented faculty members, introduce innovative technology, enhance the functionality and efficiency of our clinic, allow us to serve additional patients - especially our community’s under-served - and enhance our research core of excellence.

  • New building address 2109 Cuming St. 

Upcoming Dates

  • Current building closed July 9-Aug. 26, we are accepting calls for dental appointment during the transition period at 402.280.5990. 
  • Save the Date! Saturday, Sept. 15, the School of Dentistry will celebrate the opening of the new, state-of-the-art dental building with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house. Tours will be available by RSVP in the fall; more information will be coming soon.
