Harvard Dental School
The on this day feature states that:
- 1867 – In Boston, Massachusetts, the Harvard School of Dental Medicine was established as the first dental school in the United States.
From the Wikipedia article:
- The move towards university-based dental education institutions (as they exist today) began with the formation of Harvard Dental School in 1867.
The first dental school in the world was the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 1840, now part of the University of Maryland, Baltimore. I suggest that the line be replaced to the following more accurate statement:
