Center for Advanced Dental Education

Excellence in Dental Education and Care

The Saint Louis University Center for Advanced Dental Education (CADE) has been called the finest facility for advanced dental education in the world.

Located in Dreiling-Marshall Hall on the eastern end of SLU's medical campus in Midtown St. Louis, we house three state-of-the-art treatment clinics — orthodontics, endodontics and periodontics — as well as an imaging center that includes cone beam 3D imaging.

At CADE, we prepare dentists to become astute and multidisciplinary clinicians in the fields of orthodontics, endodontics and periodontics.

Our students learn how to provide excellent and compassionate care in state-of-the-art facilities, including an 18-station technique lab, a large multimedia auditorium, classrooms, libraries and labs.

Our patient practice, Dental Specialties of Saint Louis University, treats thousands of patients by providing braces, root canals, dental implants and treatment for gum disease at a substantial discount.
