Dental School Takes Eight New Teachers

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The University announced yesterday eight faculty appointments in the new School of Dental Medicine which will open next fall. The School will offer a five year course combining medical and dental training.

Two new members of the staff will be Dr. Joseph W. Ferrebee, of the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, who will be assistant professor of Dental Medicine; and Dr. Charles M. Waldo, assistant professor of Orthodontics, University of Michigan School of Dentistry, who will be assistant professor of Orthodontics.

Two promotions in rank are the appointment of Dr. Alfred P. Rogers, formerly assistant professor of Orthodontic Research and associate in Orthodontic, as clinical professor of Orthodontics; and of Dr. Paul E. Boyle, instructor in Pathology and in Operative Dentistry, as assistant professor of Clinical Dentistry.

The other appointments are four changes in the titles of faculty members who will give instruction at the School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Varastad H. Kazanjian, professor of Clinical Oral Surgery, will become professor of Plastic Surgery; Dr. Fred R. Blumesthal, assistant professor of Orthodontia, will become assistant professor of Orthodontics; Dr. Kurt H. Thomas, Charles A. Brackett Professor of Oral Pathology, will become professor of Oral Surgery and Charles A. Brackett Professor of Oral Pathology; and Dr. Arthur M. Maloney, associate professor of Prosthetic Dentistry, will become associate professor of Clinical Dentistry.

The other members of this first group which is to begin the development of the new school include Dr. Leroy M. S. Miner, professor of Clinical Oral Surgery; Dr. Harold A. Kent, assistant professor of Oral Surgery; Dr. Paul K. Losch, instructor in Clinical Dentistry; Dr. David Weisberger, instructor in Clinical Dentistry; and Dr. Bradford Cannon, instructor in Plastic Surgery. Other appointments will be made from time to time.

The University established the new School of Dental Medicine for the purpose of training new types of scientific workers, combining the skills of both medicine and dentistry, for an attack on the great public health problem of dental disease.

The new School has been made possible by gifts from the Carnegie Corporation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the John and Mary R. Markle Foundation. Its permanent assets for teaching and research in dentistry will total $2,550,000.

Next fall, with the opening of the new School, dental students will register in both the School of Dental Medicine and in the Medical School for a five-year course, taking approximately three and one-half years of the same medical courses as other students in the Medical School, and in addition an amount of specific dental training sufficient to qualify them for dental practice. Graduates will receive both the M.D. and the D.M.D. degrees. Admissions to the School of Dental Medicine will be governed by the same standards and the same committee which govern admission to the Harvard Medical School.
