The Dental Infirmary, consisting of both Operatory and Laboratory, is under the charge of the Superintendent, who assigns patients and with five demonstrators gives practical instruction in all operations on the natural teeth, treatment of pathological conditions of the mouth, preparation for the insertion of artificial teeth, and the construction of artificial dentures on bases of vulcanite, celluloid, silver, gold, aluminum, etc. Special attention is paid to crown and bridge work, continuous gum work, the construction of regulating appliances, porcelain inlays, and crowns.

The Infirmary is open throughout the entire year, every day in the week except Saturday afternoons and Sundays, and a demonstrator is always present. There is always an abundant supply of patients for the students' clinics.

On account of the length of the term, the opportunities for correction of irregularities is unsurpassed. Clinics are given every week by the Professor of Orthodontia.

A New Infirmary has been opened in the new building on Parnassus Avenue for the treatment of all patients for whom that location is convenient. It is hoped that the supply will soon be sufficient for all students.


In the new College building there are large laboratories in which long established courses of practical instruction in chemistry and dental metallurgy are continued with increased facilities.


In the new building a large laboratory is provided for Microscopic Technic and Histology, where these studies are pursued under greater advantages than before.


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


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, and

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. The leading dental journals and all of the books of the library are accessible to the student.


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.

He must have passed a satisfactory examination, oral, written, and practical.

He must have studied dentistry three years, including the time spent in attending lectures.

He must have attended three full courses in the Dental Department of the University of California, or two years in some other reputable Dental College of like standard of requirements for entrance, and the third or last in this College.

He is required to dissect at least two quarters, upper and lower.

He must complete all the technic work prescribed throughout the course, and must deposit in the museum such specimen work as is required.

He must perform all the operations prescribed by the Professor of Operative Dentistry.

He must treat all the cases prescribed by the Professor of Pathology and Therapeutics.

He must insert the required number of artificial dentures, crowns and pieces of bridge work prescribed by the Professor of Prosthetic Dentistry.

He must treat at least one case of irregularity, under the instruction of the Professor of Orthodontia.

He must also prepare a specimen denture, to be deposited in the College collection, and present the same to the Professor of Prosthetic Dentistry at least thirty days before the end of the term.

All operating, prosthetic, and technic work must be done in the College building, or in the College Infirmary, and exclusively by the applicant for the degree.

After these requirements have been complied with, upon the recommendation of the Faculty and the approval of the Board of Regents, the candidate will receive the Degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery.

No student of this College will be permitted to practice dentistry illegally while under the jurisdiction of the Faculty. Conviction of such practice will terminate the College career of the offender.

The fees for each session must be paid in advance, or in two installments, one-half at the beginning of the session and the last half in the following January.

Whenever a student is obliged to withdraw from the College before the last four weeks of a session for no misdemeanor, but for good and sufficient reason, to be determined in all cases by the Faculty, he shall be entitled to a remission of three-fourths of the amount due for that portion of the time during which he receives no instruction; this remission to date from the reception by the Dean of a written notice of the student's withdrawal from the College.


The expense of living in the city of San Francisco is very reasonable. Good board, with room, may now be obtained for $5.00 a week, at a convenient distance from the College building.

Practical and Theoretical Teaching. The additional laboratories now provided render it possible to make the instruction in the College thoroughly practical. This, however, is not to be done at the expense of theoretical teaching, but in addition to it. Accordingly, the lectures given now consist largely of directions for the performance of the work to be actually done under the professors' supervision, with expositions of the principles involved, and of the theories held regarding them.
