Limited opportunities remain to name spaces in the newly renovated Main Clinic (now the Robert I. Schattner Clinic), the new Schattner Pavilion, and the Edward & Shirley Shils Clinic. A naming gift is a creative and meaningful way to create an enduring legacy. At Penn Dental Medicine, your gift will be associated with this historic moment for the School and will power the next generation of proud Penn dentists.


The 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, has undergone a complete renovation for an improved student and patient experience.

Now the Robert I. Schattner Clinic, the space features new state-of-the-art equipment, 74 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, two-story windows that mimic the building’s original 1915 windows line the north side of the clinic, bathing the space in natural light.

Schattner Pavilion

The Schattner Pavilion builds upon the unified Penn Dental Medicine campus achieved with the Robert Schattner Center. 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 enhances 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 extends beyond the existing atrium of the Schattner Center and enclosed a portion of courtyard area behind it, creating a dynamic new space on two levels for public gatherings and interaction. This space a central meeting and reception area for faculty, staff, patients, and visitors to the Penn Dental Medicine campus. The second floor patient waiting area improves way finding for patients being treated in the Schattner Clinic and Care Center for Persons with Disabilities, and improves the connection to the Leon Levy Center providing a straight line of access from the Evans Building through the Schattner Center to Levy on the first and second floors.
