DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY AND METALLURGY GUY S. MILLBERRY, D.D.S., Professor of Dental Chemistry and Metallurgy. John E. GURLEY, D.D.S., Instructor in Dental Chemistry.

Laboratory Assistant in Dental Metallurgy. The course in Chemistry and Metallurgy is both theoretical and praetical. The lectures and recitations are further explained and elaborated by half-day laboratory periods.

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 zine cements, to working steel, hardening and tempering instruments, refining and alloying gold, the production of gold foil and otner 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 a week, and two laboratory periods 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.


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 demonstrations carefully written notes are required. In the first year the main facts of the physiology of the blood and circulation, respiration, absorption, nerve and muscle are studied. In the second year is given the phys

gy of secretion, excretion, metabolism, the nervous system and the special senses.


HENRY B. CAREY, B.S., M.D., Instructor in Therapeutics and Materia Medica.

This course is made as thoroughly interesting and practical as possible, and is graded as follows:

General Principles of Therapeutics--Under this head the general application of medicines will be noticed: their actions, constitutional and topical.

Special Therapeutics—In connection with Dental Materia Medica, as incidentally related thereto.

Materia Medica will be taught by lectures and recitations.

The course will embrace prescription writing, pharmacology and the use of drugs in general.

These lectures will be illustrated by crude drugs, pharmaceutical preparations, and special attention will be given to those drugs and preparations used in dental practice.

Special attention will be given to the subject of Anaesthesia. The student will be given practical instruction in this important subject. As an aid in this work several lectures and practical work will be given in physical diagnosis to enable the student to detect the more important signs which contraindicate anaesthesia. Heart lesions will receive special attention and the student will be taught the use of the stethoscope.


HENRY B. CAREY, B.S., M.D., Instructor in Anatomy and Histology.

The courses will consist largely of laboratory work and will be attended by the members of the first-year and second-year classes.

The student is required to provide himself with a gown and apparatus of approved type.

The dissecting rooms are spacious, well ventilated, and contain all the modern conveniences. They will be open to the student during the hours allotted to this subject and at such other times with permission of the instructor in charge as may appear necessary or desirable. An abund ance of material is always on hand. The material is kept in first-class condition and at no time is the air in the room filled with unpleasant odors.

The histological laboratory is located in the college building proper. It is very well lighted and has all of the necessary apparatus for the giving of a thorough course in Histology.

The first-year course is divided as follows:
A. General Gross Anatomy, subdivided as follows:

(a) Osteology-This subject will consist of the study of all the bones save those of the skull. The work will consist of modeling in clay, draw. ing and recitations. At the completion of the course examinations both oral and written will be given.

(b) Dissection of two parts, upper and lower-The student will be furnished a guide for this work. When the student has satisfactorily dissected and demonstrated a part of the work, it is checked off on the guide by the demonstrator. At the completion of the dissection of each part, the student is required to pass a satisfactory examination both oral and written, when credit for the same will be recorded. In addition to the above, the instructor in charge may require such other recitations, quizzes or exercises as may be deemed advisable,

B. Histology-This course is given during the second semester, and as far as possible is concentrated. The students receive for study sections of the tissues and organs of the body. The sections are as a rule prepared by competent assistants, stained and cleared, ready for mounting. The student is instructed as to the different methods by which the preparations are made, but beyond the technique of mounting and the methods of making and staining teased preparations, smears and fresh mounts, his time is devoted as much as possible to the actual study of the structures under consideration.

Careful notes have to be taken and drawings made of each of the sections studied. As each subject is completed, the drawings made in the study of the structures involved are arranged in sequence, labeled and explanatory references attached, and then handed to the instructor for examination and correction. For the structures of the mouth cavity the student is especially required to prepare a concisely written paper illustrated by his drawings and incorporating his observations in the laboratory, his lecture notes and reading. The laboratory periods are supplemented by an informal talk or lecture bearing on the histology of the tissues which are being studied.

A deposit of $10 is required to cover breakage and repairs of microscopes and apparatus.

A second-year course is divided as follows:
Special Anatomy, divided as follows:

(a) Osteology of the Skull-Bones will be studied with care. The majority of the bones will be modeled in clay, paper or other materials. The rest of the work will consist of recitations, demonstrations and quizzes.

(b) Gross Anatomy of the Nervous System—This consists of the dissection of the spinal cord and brain, with drawings, demonstrations and recitations.

(c) Dissection of the Head and Neck-Students will be furnished a guide for this important dissection and the same pedagogical scheme will be followed for this dissection as in the first-year course. The applied and surgical anatomy will be incidentally discussed and emphasized during the course of dissection.

At the close of the above course, examinations both oral and written will be given. The student is encouraged to do daily work of a high class quality and he is given to understand that such work is an important factor in the final record.


Instructor in Bacteriology and Pathology. The study of Bacteriology is inseparably connected with that of Dentistry, and its relation to hygiene and preventive medicine is of fundamental importance. The instruction in this department consists of a didactic lecture course and quizzes, supplemented by illustrations to elucidate the practical work during the laboratory periods. Students are required to prepare the various media upon which to grow cultures. Each student is required to isolate the various form in pure cultures; then mount, stain and examine them under the microscope and keep a careful record of his observations. The object of the course is to familiarize the student with the methods of detection, isolation and identification of the micro-organisms that act as factors in diseases of the mouth and teeth.

Advanced students will find ample material and apparatus at hand for carrying on original work.

The course in Pathology is along general lines; the students are shown the gross specimens, and are then required to stain sections of these specimens, examine them with the microscope, and make notes and drawings.

Circulatory disturbances, the various phases of degeneration and inflammation, and the character of tumors form the basis of the work. The best results in these studies being attained by frequent periods in the laboratories, the courses will be concentrated into one and one-half hour periods from 8 to 9:30 a.m. alternate days during the entire year.

A deposit of $10 is required to cover breakage and repairs to microscopes and apparatus.


The course on Radiography will consist of lectures and practical work in the X-ray laboratory. The lecture course will be divided as follows:

Electricity and its relation to the production of the X-ray.
X-ray apparatus and its manipulation.
Selection and installation of X-ray apparatus.
Tubes: their types, construction and principles.
Selection and care of tubes.
Comparative studies of the Cathode and Röntgen ray.
The principles of technic.
