Description

Excerpt from Minutes and Proceedings of the Dental Faculties' Association of American Universities, 1908-1924 The former Dental Faculties' Association of American Universities, now merged in the American Association of Dental Schools, takes pleasure in presenting you with this copy of the Minutes and Proceedings of the Dental Faculties' Association of American Universities from its organization in July, 1908, to its dissolution in March, 1924, prior to its union with the American Association of Dental Schools.* Your attention is especially invited to the historical sketch of the activities of the Association which precedes the minutes. The recently published synopsis of the forthcoming report of the Carnegie Survey of Dental Education gives unqualified commendation and support to the ideal of dental education in universities. * We quote from this synopsis as read by the director of the survey at the first meeting, in March, 1924, of the American Association of Dental Schools: Considered as a whole the practice of dentistry is, in effect, a combination of the arts of medicine and mechanics, largely on the basis of fine art, applied to the teeth and mouth directly. Oral (with correlative systemic) health-service is the fundamental purpose of the practice of dentistry. Mechanical procedures are its chief ways and means. Artistic oral restorations and reconstructions are its esthetic achievements. Medicine, mechanics, and art constitute the tripod on which the whole of modern dentistry rests. Pull away one of three legs of that tripod, and dentistry ceases to be itself. Antagonism between medicine and dentistry cannot be explained on any basis of public interest or advantage, and has no jurisdiction whatever in any sentiments that are worthy of respect. Dentistry is neither a political party nor a secret society. It is not an organization of dentists, conducted by dentists, for dentists. Dentistry is an accredited agency for public service, open to public inspection, subject to public regulation, and subservient to enlightened public opinion. Dental education is a function of universities. The most favorable conditions for instruction in dentistry are plainly those provided in the universities by cordial co-operation between teachers of dentistry, and those of the schools of medicine and engineering. Such co-operation insures the most effective teaching under the most advantageous circumstances for all concerned. It is believed that, in view of the forthcoming report of the Carnegie Survey of Dental Education, publication of the Proceedings of the Dental Faculties' Association of American Universities is peculiarly timely. From its inception to its dissolution this body had as its chief aim the consummation of the ideal now so strongly set forth in the synopsis of this report, that is, raising dental education to the university plane with the ultimate aim of placing dentistry on a par with any other specialty in medicine.
