School of Dentistry Centennial Exhibit at Scott Health Sciences Library
T.C. Monday, February 06, 2017 exhibits
The School of Dentistry is 100 years old! We are celebrating this major milestone with an exhibit at the J.W. Scott Health Sciences Library. Come and explore the school's history through the evolution of dental tools, publications by faculty members, and students’ achievements that tell the School of Dentistry's story.
In 1917, just nine years after the founding of the University of Alberta, the first class of aspiring dental professionals was admitted to the newly established dentistry program. Since then, the school has developed into a world class teaching and research institute, responding to the needs of the community, adapting to the times and tackling each decade’s unique challenges. It also has the distinction of being the first and only university providing dental education in Western Canada for 41 years until 1958.
This illuminating exhibit will be on display at the J.W. Scott Health Sciences Library until March 31, 2017.
