Instructor in Prosthetic Technic and Clinical Prosthetic Dentistry. HERBERT JOSHUA SAMUELS, D.D.S., Instructor in Prosthetic Technie.

The instruction in this highly important department embraces every. thing necessary to enable the dentist successfully to apply substitutes for lost organs or parts of the oral cavity.

Special reference is made to the principles involved in the restoration of the natural functions of the teeth, namely, mastication, enunciation and facial expression, keeping in view always the health and future usefulness of the living parts.

The instruction is both didactic and practical, is divided into consecutive courses intended for all the classes, and includes the following subjects:

The first year includes lectures, lessons, and quizzes, on the history of prosthetic dentistry; the fixtures, materials and appliances of the laboratory; the manufacture of artificial teeth, their selection and arrangement for special cases and temperaments; the principles involved, together with the methods in constructing dentures on vulcanite, celluloid, cast and swaged metallic bases.

In addition to the didactic teaching, there are requirements in prosthetic technic which are of the greatest value, giving the students a familiarity with and knowledge of the working properties of all the materials employed, embracing the use of wax and plaster, the construction, use and care of instruments and appliances, and experience in the use of vulcanite, making dies and counters, swaging and soldering processes, and in constructing dentures.

The second year includes lectures, lessons, and quizzes, upon metals and alloys employed in the dental laboratory operations; treatment of the mouth preparatory to the insertion of artificial dentures; the construction of the more advanced styles of dentures, including a thorough study of continuous gum cases, crown, bridge and porcelain work, and the hygienic and physiological relations of the denture to the parts with which it is in contact.

The third-year course is largely devoted to work of an actually practical nature in the infirmary and laboratory.

The requirements in practical work are varied and progressive, speci: men work being demanded of all students, showing the methods embraced by this branch of college work.



GEORGE LUSK BEAN, D.D.S., Professor of Dental Porcelain.
OTTO P. ROLLER, D.D.S., Special Instructor in Dental Porcelain.
SAXON BIRD SCOTT, D.D.S., Assistant in Dental Porcelain.
CHARLES BRUCE PORTER, D.D.S., Assistant in Dental Porcelain.

The course in dental porcelain is taken up during the third year and will be essentially practical in its nature.

Students will be taught the characteristics, uses and limitations of the different standard porcelain bodies, and will be required to become thoroughly familiar with the manipulation of the same in the technic laboratory, before undertaking operations of a practical nature in the infirmary.

Special consideration will be given to the preparation of roots for single crowns, and the construction of the same by hand carving; porcelain bridge work and the making of gum sections for restorative purposes will also be thoroughly taught.

The preparation of cavities for porcelain inlay work will be taught didactically, with illustrations and demonstrations; the student finally being required to fill cavities of each general type in extracted teeth, with both high and low fusing bodies, before doing like operations in the mouth. During the second semester one full afternoon each week will be devoted to practical infirmary cases, under the supervision of special demonstrators.

Though the college is well supplied with electric and gas furnaces, students will use their own furnaces constructed during the second year, in order that they may become familiar with their furnace temperatures, care and manipulation.

Each student will be required to furnish gold and platinum foil for his technic work and platinum for crowns to be deposited with the department, the porcelain bodies all being furnished by the college.

Before graduating each student must have performed enough practical operations in the mouth to demonstrate a working knowledge of the subject, satisfactory to the head of the department.


JAMES GRAHAM SHARP, M.D., D.D.S., Professor of the Principles and Practice of Surgery.

HERBERT T. MOORE, B.S., D.D.S., Lecturer on the Principles of Surgery. D.D.S., Clinical Instructor in Extracting.

This course will be both clinical and didactic, comprising all surgical operations about the mouth and contiguous parts, supplemented by instruction and demonstrations in extracting, with practical applications of general anesthetics.

This department also includes a course in surgical dissections upon the cadaver.


ALLEN H. SUGGETT, B.S., D.D.S., Professor of Orthodontics.

Under this department embracing the second and third years are taught the modern methods of correcting irregularities of the teeth and dentofacial deformities.

Second-year Course-Lectures on occlusion; the etiology, classification, diagnosis and treatment of malocclusion; the principles, construction and application of essential regulating appliances, and the various forms of anchorage and post treatment maintenance, with demonstrations.

Under the instructor the students will be taught impression taking, model making, soldering and the construction of appliances.

Third-year Course-Under the supervision of the instructor, the students will conduct practical cases in the infirmary. Each student, having been fully prepared during the junior year by the lectures and technical work, will be required to correct at least one case of malocclusion, besides having the benefit of observing the conduct of cases by the other students. Under proper supervision practical cases will be conducted and their treatment fully demonstrated as they progress.

This department is of special importance, as it embraces a study of the conditions met with in general dental practice and the most recent and successful methods of treatment.

The course will be given in the form of lectures and quizzes, supplemented by practical demonstrations of the various therapeutical measures and whenever possible by exhibitions of lantern slides and apparatus. Experimentation and research work will be encouraged.

The pathological conditions considered will be abrasions, erosions, stains and caries of the enamel and dentin; constructive and destructive diseases of the dental pulp; diseases of the pericementum, both apical and gingival. Under the head of therapeutics the following subjects will be taught, both by lectures and practical demonstrations in the infirmary: bleaching teeth, the various methods of pulp devitalization and removal, canal treatment and filling, treatment of alveolar abscess.

In those diseases of the pericementum, classed as pyorrhoeal, demonstration will be given of deep scaling of the roots with application of the accompanying remedial agents and an exhibition of the different forms of splints and loosened teeth.

Instruction will be given in oral prophylaxis and the modern prophy. lactic treatment of scaling and polishing the teeth, together with the use of compressed air sprays.

The different practicable methods of obtunding sensitive dentin and relieving the pain of other operative procedures will form an important part of the course.

In the laboratories every apparatus and opportunity is afforded the student not only for the work of the course, but also for original research. Each student is provided with a bench, all necessary reagents, and a locker with some fifty pieces of apparatus. Special attention is given to the study of nitrous oxide, porcelain, basic zinc cements, to working steel, hardening and tempering instruments, refining and alloying gold, the production of gold foil and other forms of gold for practical work, and a thorough, practical and experimental course in the properties of dental-amalgam alloys.

A deposit of five dollars is required of each student in the laboratories. The following is a general synopsis of the course:

First Year—Following Simon's Manual of Chemistry, and our own laboratory manual, the first-year course includes the subject of general inorganic chemistry applied to dentistry. There are two lectures and one laboratory period of a half day each a week, where the student is required to perform about three hundred practical illustrative experiments. A number of themes are required from the class, from time to time, upon chemical subjects particularly important to dentistry.

Second Year—Following the same text, the second-year work in chemistry consists of one lecture a week, during which qualitative analysis, organic chemistry, salivary analysis and physiological chemistry is taught.

Second Year—The work in metallurgy comprises one lecture and one laboratory period of a half day each week. The laboratory work includes practical and experimental work on all the metals of importance to dentistry, the preparations of basic zinc cements, alloys of all the various metals, especially of gold and silver, practical preparation of gold foil from scrap gold, and the preparation and practical study of dentalamalgam alloys. During the year themes are required upon subjects of particular importance. A special feature of this course embraces the theory and construction of the electric furnace. Each student will be required to construct a furnace for his personal use, at a cost approximating $20.00.


The courses in Physiology are given during the first and second years. Instruction consists of lectures, recitations, demonstrations and individual laboratory work. Written tests are held each week. The laboratory is well supplied with kymographs, inductoriums and other apparatus by means of which the students are enabled to repeat the more fundamental physiological experiments. In connection with all experiments and dem.
