The Center for Innovation & Precision Dentistry (CiPD) is a vibrant community of experts in Penn Dental Medicine and Penn’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences who leverage cutting-edge yet affordable approaches to:

  • Accelerate discovery and translation of new therapies, diagnostics and devices to address unmet needs in oral health
  • Train the next generation of leaders in dental, oral and craniofacial research and oral healthcare innovation

Oral diseases affect 3.9 billion people worldwide, ranging from tooth decay and gum diseases to life threatening cancers. CiPD will advance the knowledge about how to diagnose diseases earlier, prevent and treat them more effectively.

From developing new biomedical tools, to finding precise means to study and prevent oral-craniofacial disorders, the Center will foster innovation in dental medicine, engineering and the applied sciences through research, training, and entrepreneurship.
