Main Clinic Renovation & Schattner Pavilion

Work is underway on the next major facilities improvements at the School – the renovation of the Main Clinic (to become the Robert I. Schattner Clinic) and the construction of the Schattner Pavilion (a two-story addition to the Robert Schattner Center). These projects are being made possible in great part through support from the late Dr. Robert I. Schattner (C’48), one of the School’s most accomplished and devoted graduates, who contributed $15 million toward these projects before his death in January 2017. Thanks to his generosity, his legacy is continuing to move Penn Dental Medicine forward.

Main Clinic Renovation – Robert I. Schattner Clinic

The School’s 11,520-square-foot Main Clinic, which has been the hub of DMD clinical instruction and patient care since the Thomas Evans Building’s construction in 1915, will undergo a complete renovation for an improved student and patient experience.

To be named the Robert I. Schattner Clinic, it will feature new state-of-the-art equipment, 70 individual operatories designed to maximize privacy and comfort, new flooring and lighting, enhanced radiographic capabilities, and a redesign to optimize operational flow, including improved instrument distribution and collection. Adding a dramatic element to the space, are plans to reveal the original, historic windows that line the north side of the clinic, bathing the space in natural light.

The renovation will be completed by the end of December 2017.

Schattner Pavilion

The Schattner Pavilion will build upon the unified Penn Dental Medicine campus achieved with the Robert Schattner Center’s construction. When the Schattner Center opened in 2002, becoming the School’s main entrance, it linked the Evans Building and Leon Levy Center for Oral Health Research. The Schattner Pavilion will enhance this connection, further joining all three buildings that make up Penn Dental Medicine and facilitating interaction among faculty and staff within them.

The 2,100-square-foot Pavilion will extend beyond the existing atrium of the Schattner Center and enclose a portion of courtyard area behind it, creating a dynamic new space on two levels for public gatherings and interaction. This space is intended to become a central meeting and reception area for faculty, staff, patients, and visitors to the Penn Dental Medicine campus. The second floor patient waiting area will improve way finding for patients being treated in the Schattner Clinic, and the connection to the Leon Levy Center will provide a straight line of access from the Evans Building through the Schattner Center to Levy. The Pavilion will open into a faculty collaboration space within Levy.

The Schattner Pavilion has a projected completion date of mid-June 2018.
