CURRICULUM

DEPARTMENT OF OPERATIVE DENTISTRY

JOSEPH DUPUY HODGEN, D.D.S., Professor of Operative Dentistry.
FRED E. HART, D.D.S., Instructor in Dental Technics and Clinical Dentistry.
M. THAYER RHODES, D.D.S., Demonstrator in Clinical Dentistry.

Assistant Demonstrator of Clinical Dentistry. The course of instruction in this department will consist of lectures, recitations, operative technics and clinics. The work has been thoroughly systematized, and graded to meet the needs of the various classes of students, beginning with the fundamental principles in the first year and systematically advancing to the practical details of the most elaborate and complicated operations upon the teeth in the third year.

The course in Operative Technics is designed to ground the student thoroughly in the principles of operative dentistry and prepare him to prosecute intelligently the practical work of the infirmary.

This course is completed in the first year, and embraces a study of the forms of the teeth and training in the discrimination of the individual characteristics of the different classes of teeth. This is done by examination and dissection of the natural teeth, a study of typal forms by drawing and modeling, a series of lantern slides, lectures and quizzes. Special atten tion is given to the study of the pulp chambers and root eanals, their number, size, form, their relation to the outer surfaces of the teeth. This course also includes an interesting study in instrument making: the use and care of instruments; the manner of their manipulation, and their adaptation to the various classes of operations by systematie praetice on teeth out of the mouth. Instruction is also given in the manipulation and physical characteristics in filling materials and the application of the rubber dam; the methods employed in gaining space; the use of the matrix and clamp; and the preparation of the cavity and insertion of specimen fillings in tooth forms.

In the early part of the second year special attention will be given to the filling of teeth with the various materials employed for that purpose, and laboratory tests of such fillings made out of the mouth. By such tests only can the student learn how to overcome his faults in manipulating the filling materials. The clinical instruction in the infirmary will begin with the more simple operations, the student being advanced to the more difficult ones as rapidly as his capabilities are demonstrated to the satisfaction of the instructors in this department. Surgical cleanliness as applied to dental operations will receive especial attention from the lecture platform and in the infirmary.

A full course of instruction, both didactic and clinical, in the care of the deciduous teeth is contemplated, beginning with the session of 1912-13.

Prominent features of the clinical instruction to the third-year class will be inlay work of gold and porcelain and the introduction of large contour gold fillings.

A deposit fee of $10 is required to cover breakage in infirmary and laboratories.

DEPARTMENT OF PROSTHETIC DENTISTRY

WM. FULLER SHARP, D.D.S., D.M.D., Professor of Prosthetic Dentistry.
FRED E. HART, D.D.S., Instructor in Dental Technics and Clinical Dentistry.

Assistant Instructor in Prosthetic Technics.
M. THAYER RHODES, D.D.S., Demonstrator in Clinical Dentistry.

Assistant Demonstrator in Clinical Dentistry. The instruction in this highly important department embraces ererything 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 use. fulness 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 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, swagging and soldering processes, and in constructing dentures.

Subsequent courses include lectures 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.

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

DEPARTMENT OF DENTAL PORCELAIN

GEORGE LUSK BEAN, D.D.S., Professor of Dental Porcelain.
OTTO P. ROLLER, D.D.S., Special Instructor in Dental Porcelain.
F. BURTON KENWARD, 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 technie laboratory, before undertaking operations of a practical nature in the infirmary.

The preparation of roots for the reception of single crowns, and as abutments for both fixed and removable bridges, will be given complete and special consideration.

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.

DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY

tice of Surgery. HERBERT T. MOORE, B.S., D.D.S., Lecturer on the Principles and Practiee

of Surgery. SAMUEL WILLIAM Hussey, 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.

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 retention, 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.
