The Dental Laboratory is in charge of the Superintendent of Infirmary, who will assign patients to students, and, with the Demonstrators of Mechanical Dentistry, will give practical instruction in preparing the mouth for the insertion of artificial teeth, and the construction of artificial dentures on bases

of vulcanite, celluloid, silver, gold, etc.; also, in alloying, refining and preparing the metals for use. Special attention will be given to continuous-gum work. On account of the length of the term, the opportunities for practice in correcting irregularities of the teeth will be unsurpassed, and will receive their share of attention.

The Operating Department will be under the immediate supervision of the Superintendent of Infirmary, who will have entire charge.

The rooms will be open during the forenoon of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and during the afternoon of each day except Saturday, until four o'clock, when all practical matters pertaining to Operative Dentistry will be fully dealt with by the Demonstrators, one of whom will always be present. The Infirmary will be open throughout the entire year, thus affording a practical course for first and second year students unsurpassed by any similar institution. As there is always an excess of clinical material on hand, and there are six hundred and forty-eight hours per term (including three hours each Wednesday afternoon) devoted to practical consideration of diseases of the teeth, and the adjacent parts, it is not difficult to estimate the advantages the students have in this department.


Students of dentistry will have all the facilities and opportunities in hospital practice and observation enjoyed by the medical students. They will have access to the City and County Hospital, the City Receiving Hospital and the San Francisco Female Hospital.

Clinical lectures, medical and surgical, are given at the City and County Hospital by the professors of the College of Medicine, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, from 9 A. M. to 12 M.

For further particulars on this subject, see Clinical Instruction under Medical Department.


A nucleus has been formed from which it is hoped a large library and museum will grow. All members and friends of the dental profession are invited to contribute books, pamphlets, journals, charts; anatomical, physiological, and pathological specimens; casts of deformities and irregularities of the teeth and associate parts; or anything that will be useful or instructive. These contributions will be placed in the library or museum, and marked with the name of the donor, if this is desired.


I. The candidate for the degree of DOCTOR OF DENTAL SURGERY must have attained the age of twenty-one years, and be of good moral character.
