East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine
East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine is the dental school at East Carolina University. It is North Carolina's second dental school, which enrolled its inaugural class in the fall of 2011. ECU SoDM was established to address the shortage of dentists in the rural regions across North Carolina, it serves North Carolina statewide by educating more dentists, with the primary focus of student recruitment being students who desire to return to rural and underserved areas to provide oral health care. The SoDM built 8 community service learning centers located in rural and underserved areas throughout the state; the students will complete nine-week rotations at the service learning centers during their final year of study. The first mention of a School of Dental Medicine came from Phyllis Horns Interim Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences. On March 19, 2002, Vice Chancellor Horns announced at the Faculty Senate that ECU was looking into pursuing a Dental School. On July 12, 2002 a feasibility study was reported at The University of North Carolina Board of Governors meeting at the request of Governor Mike Easley who noted fewer dentists in North Carolina were accepting Medicaid patients.
It recommended the establishment of an academic dental department to support the expanded residency program, a residency program in pediatric dentistry at East Carolina University. However, consultants cited cost as an obstacle of pursuing the school at the current time. North Carolina is 47th in the nation in terms of dentists per capita and is lacking in dentists in the eastern part of the state. There are four counties, Jones and Camden without any primary practicing dentists. To remedy this situation, East Carolina and UNC-Chapel Hill have jointly developed a plan to increase the number of dentists in the state and established the ECU School of Dental Medicine. On February 24, 2006 the East Carolina University Board of Trustees unanimously passes a resolution in supporting a Dental School. On May 11, 2006, the Committee on Educational Planning and Programs of the UNC BOG approved the proposal to establish a dental school at East Carolina. On November 10, 2006, the UNC BOG unanimously passed the proposal.
The UNC BOG requested $43.5 million each of the next two years to build the school. The inaugural class of 2015 began classes on August 22, 2011, with Ross Hall opening in October 2012. Ross Hall clinics welcomed their first patients in April 2013. For the 2016-2017 cycle, a total of 536 applications were received for the 52 seats available in the class of 2021; the Academic Average for the DAT was a 19, along with a PAT Average of 19. The average cumulative GPA of the Class of 2021 enrollees was a 3.44, an average science GPA of 3.34 Only North Carolina residents are considered for admission to ECU SoDM, due to the primary focus of student recruitment to be students who desire to stay and practice in underserved and rural regions of North Carolina. Therefore, Out-of-State applicants are not considered for admission into the D. M. D. Program; the East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine awards the Doctor of Dental Medicine D. M. D. Degree; the curriculum of the ECU School of Dental Medicine will offer a distinctive mix of course work that in many ways resembles the model, developed for The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, which focuses on training family doctors to serve rural counties.
First year—Students study the cardiovascular, nervous and reproductive systems of the body. They will learn normal and clinical medicine; some work will be done with dental models, known as simulators, to learn fillings and other “hand skills.” Second year—Students learn how the human systems apply to dental health how a dysfunction in another part of the body can affect the head and oral cavity. They will do more advanced practice with models, as well as some time working with patients doing basic procedures such as fillings. Third year—Most of the students’ time will be spent taking care of patients under the supervision of faculty members in the Ross Hall dental school clinics. Fourth year— The fourth year is divided into 5 clinical rotations, two of which take place at the Ross Hall clinics in Greenville, three of which take place at CSLC around the state. “ECU believes that the best way to encourage practice in underserved areas is to physically train dental students in these communities,” says Dr. Todd Watkins, assistant dean of dental education informatics.
The school offers the following postdoctoral programs: Advanced Education in General Dentistry General Practice Residency Residency in Pediatric Dentistry East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine granted accreditation by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association. It was approved for initial accreditation in February 2011 and enrolled its first class in Fall 2011; the lack of dentists in Eastern North Carolina has been the primary motivation for East Carolina University to pursue the foundation of a dental school. North Carolina ranks 47th in dentist per 10,000 residents. Four counties, all in Eastern North Carolina have no dentist. Only eight counties have dentist to patient ratio. Twenty-eight counties have fewer than two dentists. Seventy-nine counties are recognized as federally designated dental shortage areas. East Carolina built eight Community Dental Centers located in rural and underserved areas throughout the state. Fourth-year students will complete nine-w
University of Maryland School of Dentistry
The University of Maryland School of Dentistry is the dental school of the University System of Maryland. It was founded as an independent institution, the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, in 1840 and was the birthplace of the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, it is known as the first dental college in the world. It is headquartered at the University of Baltimore campus, it is the only dental school in Maryland. Related history: Harvard School of Dental Medicine > HistoryThe Baltimore College of Dental Surgery was chartered by an act of the General Assembly of Maryland in 1840. Its co-founders, Doctors Horace H. Hayden and Chapin A. Harris have been both inducted in the Pierre Fauchard Academy Hall of Fame. Dr. Harris was a professor of practical dentistry. Following the death of Dr. Hayden on January 25, 1844, he became the school's second president; the College is still in existence today and is part of the University of Maryland, Baltimore as one of its five professional graduate level schools.
The establishment of the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery is seen as one of the three crucial steps in the foundation of the dental profession in the United States and the world. Today, the University of Maryland School of Dentistry enjoys one of the most advanced dental education facilities in the world; the new 12-story building on West Fayette Street on the westside of downtown Baltimore was completed in October 2006. The structure replaced a previous building on the site, only three decades old; the total cost for the new establishment amounted to over $140 million dollars, the highest amount spent on an academic building by the State of Maryland.

New York University College of Dentistry
The New York University College of Dentistry is the dentistry school of New York University. As the 3rd oldest dentistry school in the United States, it offers both graduate programs and clinical training in oral healthcare; the College of Dentistry was founded in 1865 as the "New York College of Dentistry." It merged with NYU in 1925. NYU Dentistry is the third oldest continuously operating and the largest dental school in the United States. In 1957, the College moved into its present home on First Avenue, which in 1965 was named the K. B. Weissman Clinical Science Building. In 1978, the Arnold and Marie Schwartz Hall of Dental Sciences was completed. In 1987, New York University dedicated the David B. Kriser Dental Center. In 2002, the Leonard I. Bluestone Center for Clinical Research opened - the only dental school-based research center that provides beds for 24-hour patient monitoring. In fall of 2005, NYU's Division of Nursing moved from the Steinhardt School of Education to form the College of Nursing within the College of Dentistry.
In 2015, a new joint 170,000 square foot building for Dentistry and the Bioengineering Institute was opened. In aggregate, the College of Dentistry occupies 27 floors distributed among five buildings; the College of Dentistry is located on First Avenue between East 24th and 26th Streets, about 6 blocks south of the NYU School of Medicine. The College's facilities include the Schwartz Hall of Dental Sciences, the K. B. Weissman Clinical Science Building, the new 13 floor interdisciplinary building at 433 First Avenue, four newly renovated floors at 137 25th Street, one floor at 380 First Avenue; these house classrooms, patient clinics and teaching facilities, administrative offices, as well as a state-of-the-art Learning Commons for dentistry, dental hygiene and engineering students and an Executive Conference Suite. Clinical facilities include 506 dental operatories; the operatories are designed in modules, each containing a waiting room, offices, X-ray facilities, a seminar room for instruction and consultation.
These facilities enable the College to provide oral health care for thousands of New Yorkers. The address shown in the caption for the figure below is incorrect, the building shown is on East 24th street, not East 25th street; the College of Dentistry maintains one of the largest rare book dental libraries, close to 1000 volumes, the legacy of Dr. Bernhard Wolf Weinberger, a dental historian, orthodontist and a faculty member in the 1930s, its collection includes a first edition of the Pierre Fauchard Le Chirurgien Dentist, one second edition and a third edition. Other volumes include works by Bartolomeo Eustachio, 1563 edition of De Libellus de Dentibus, 1546 and 1547 editions of Artzneybuch, one of the first German dentally-related book; the original library, founded in 1909 and named the Waldmann Memorial Library in 1978 was digitized and modernized in 2015. The College of Dentistry has moved its "library" into the newly opened Dental-Nursing-Biomaterials joint interprofessional building at 433 First Avenue.
The building has a large study area for all students but it no longer houses books. The students have 24 hour access to the study area. Since 2001, NYU Dentistry has replaced traditional textbooks with a collection of digitalized textbooks. All required materials are available to students through a computer-enhanced curriculum; the new technology gives each student a license for all of the textbooks in the curriculum. In addition to traditional textbook content, students are able to view slide presentations and video streams of lab and clinical procedures and do full text searches on their materials.

Private schools known to many as independent schools, non-governmental funded, or non-state schools, are not administered by local, state or national governments. Children who attend private schools may be there because they are dissatisfied with public schools in their area, they may be selected for their academic prowess, or prowess in other fields, or sometimes their religious background. Private schools retain the right to select their students and are funded in whole or in part by charging their students for tuition, rather than relying on mandatory taxation through public funding; some private schools are associated with a particular religion, such as Judaism, Roman Catholicism, or Lutheranism. For the past century one in 10 U. S families has chosen to enroll their children in private school. In the United Kingdom and several other Commonwealth countries including Australia and Canada, the use of the term is restricted to primary and secondary educational levels. Private education in North America covers the whole gamut of educational activity, ranging from pre-school to tertiary level institutions.
Annual tuition fees at K-12 schools range from nothing at so called'tuition-free' schools to more than $45,000 at several New England preparatory schools. The secondary level includes schools offering years 7 through 12 and year 13; this category includes university-preparatory schools or "prep schools", boarding schools and day schools. Tuition at private secondary schools varies from school to school and depends on many factors, including the location of the school, the willingness of parents to pay, peer tuitions and the school's financial endowment. High tuition, schools claim, is used to pay higher salaries for the best teachers and used to provide enriched learning environments, including a low student-to-teacher ratio, small class sizes and services, such as libraries, science laboratories and computers; some private schools are boarding schools and many military academies are owned or operated as well. Religiously affiliated and denominational schools form a subcategory of private schools.
Some such schools teach religious education, together with the usual academic subjects to impress their particular faith's beliefs and traditions in the students who attend. Others use the denomination as more of a general label to describe on what the founders based their belief, while still maintaining a fine distinction between academics and religion, they include parochial schools, a term, used to denote Roman Catholic schools. Other religious groups represented in the K–12 private education sector include Protestants, Jews and the Orthodox Christians. Many educational alternatives, such as independent schools, are privately financed. Private schools avoid some state regulations, although in the name of educational quality, most comply with regulations relating to the educational content of classes. Religious private schools simply add religious instruction to the courses provided by local public schools. Special assistance schools aim to improve the lives of their students by providing services tailored to specific needs of individual students.
Such schools include tutoring schools to assist the learning of handicapped children. Private schools are one of three types of school in Australia, the other two being government schools and religious. Whilst private schools are sometimes considered "public" schools, the term "public school" is synonymous with a government school. Private schools in Australia may be favored for many reasons: prestige and the social status of the "old school tie"; some schools offer the removal of the purported distractions of co-education. Student uniforms for Australian private schools are stricter and more formal than in government schools – for example, a compulsory blazer. Private schools in Australia are always more expensive than their public counterpartsThere are two main categories of private schools in Australia: Catholic schools and Independent schools. Catholic schools form the second largest sector after government schools, with around 21% of secondary enrollments. Most Australian Catholic schools belong to a system, like government schools, are co-educational and attempt to provide Catholic education evenly across the states.
These schools are known as "systemic". Systemic Catholic schools are funded by state and federal government and have low fees. Catholic schools, both systemic and independent have a strong religious focus, most of their staff and students will be Catholic. Independent schools make up the last sector and are the most popular form of schooling for boarding students. Independent schools are non-government institutions that are not part of a system. Although most are non-aligned, some of the best known independent schools belong to the large, long-established religious foundations, such as the Anglican Church, Uniting Church and Pres
University of California
The University of California is a public university system in the U. S. state of California. Under the California Master Plan for Higher Education, the University of California is a part of the state's three-system public higher education plan, which includes the California State University system and the California Community Colleges System; the University of California was founded on March 23, 1868, operated temporarily in Oakland before moving to its new campus in Berkeley in 1873. In March 1951, the University of California began to reorganize itself into something distinct from its first campus at Berkeley, with Robert Gordon Sproul remaining in place as the first systemwide President and Clark Kerr becoming the first Chancellor of UC Berkeley. However, the 1951 reorganization was stalled by resistance from Sproul and his allies, it was not until Kerr succeeded Sproul as President that UC was able to evolve into a true university system from 1957 to 1960. In the 21st century, the University of California has 10 campuses, a combined student body of 251,700 students, 21,200 faculty members, 144,000 staff members and over 1.86 million living alumni, as governed by a semi-autonomous Board of Regents.
Its tenth and newest campus in Merced opened in fall 2005. Nine campuses enroll graduate students. In addition, the UC Hastings College of Law, located in San Francisco, is affiliated with UC, but other than sharing its name is autonomous from the rest of the system; the University of California manages or co-manages three national laboratories for the U. S. Department of Energy: Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory. Collectively, the colleges and alumni of the University of California make it the most comprehensive and advanced postsecondary educational system in the world, responsible for nearly $50 billion per year of economic impact. UC campuses have large numbers of distinguished faculty in every academic discipline, with UC faculty and researchers having won at least 62 Nobel Prizes as of 2017. In 1849, the state of California ratified its first constitution, which contained the express objective of creating a complete educational system including a state university.
Taking advantage of the Morrill Land-Grant Acts, the California Legislature established an Agricultural and Mechanical Arts College in 1866. However, it existed only as a placeholder to secure federal land-grant funds. Meanwhile, Congregational minister Henry Durant, an alumnus of Yale, had established the private Contra Costa Academy, on June 20, 1853, in Oakland, California; the initial site was bounded by Twelfth and Fourteenth Streets and Harrison and Franklin Streets in downtown Oakland. In turn, the Academy's trustees were granted a charter in 1855 for a College of California, though the College continued to operate as a college preparatory school until it added college-level courses in 1860; the College's trustees and supporters believed in the importance of a liberal arts education, but ran into a lack of interest in liberal arts colleges on the American frontier. In November 1857, the College's trustees began to acquire various parcels of land facing the Golden Gate in what is now Berkeley for a future planned campus outside of Oakland.
But first, they needed to secure the College's water rights by buying a large farm to the east. In 1864, they organized the College Homestead Association, which borrowed $35,000 to purchase the land, plus another $33,000 to purchase 160 acres of land to the south of the future campus; the Association subdivided the latter parcel and started selling lots with the hope it could raise enough money to repay its lenders and create a new college town. But sales of new homesteads fell short. Governor Frederick Low favored the establishment of a state university based upon the University of Michigan plan, thus in one sense may be regarded as the founder of the University of California. At the College of California's 1867 commencement exercises, where Low was present, Benjamin Silliman, Jr. criticized Californians for creating a state polytechnic school instead of a real university. That same day, Low first suggested a merger of the already-functional College of California with the nonfunctional state college, went on to participate in the ensuing negotiations.
On October 9, 1867, the College's trustees reluctantly agreed to join forces with the state college to their mutual advantage, but under one condition—that there not be an "Agricultural and Mechanical Arts College", but a complete university, within which the assets of the College of California would be used to create a College of Letters. Accordingly, the Organic Act, establishing the University of California, was introduced as a bill by Assemblyman John W. Dwinelle on March 5, 1868, after it was duly passed by both houses of the state legislature, it was signed into state law by Governor Henry H. Haight on March 23, 1868. However, as constituted, the new University was not an actual merger of the two colleges, but was an new institution which inherited certain objectives and assets from each of them; the University
University of Michigan School of Dentistry
The University of Michigan School of Dentistry is the dental school of the University of Michigan, located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Established in 1875, the School of Dentistry engages in oral and craniofacial health care education, patient care and community service, it is the number one ranked dental school in the U. S. and second in the world according to two independent rankings. The University of Michigan was the first state university in the world and the second university in the United States to offer education in dentistry.. The University of Michigan was the first to provide graduate-level dentistry education. Four of its faculty members have been elected president of the American Dental Association; the Sindecuse Museum of Dentistry is housed within the School of Dentistry. The student body consists of 646 students; the School has: The undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene program, which has 111 students. D students. There are 300 part-time faculty; the average class size is 105 for the D.
D. S. program and 30 for the B. S. dental hygiene program. Fields of study at the School of Dentistry include dental hygiene, oral health, endodontics, computerized dentistry and maxillofacial surgery, pediatric dentistry, periodontics and restorative dentistry. Among the student organizations at the School of Dentistry are the Alpha Omega Fraternity, American Association of Women Dentists, the American Student Dental Association, the Christian Medical/Dental Society, Dental LGBA, Delta Sigma Delta, Hispanic Dental Association, Muslim Student Dental Association, Society of the American Indian Dentist, Student Council, Student National Dental Association, Student Research Group, Jonathan Taft Society, UM Asian Dental Student Organization, Xi Psi Phi; the D. D. S. Student body is 66 percent white, 24 percent Asian American, 4.5 percent black or African American, 4.5 percent Hispanic or Latino, 0.9 percent Native American or Alaskan Native. The School's dental hygiene and D. D. S. Programs are both accredited by the American Dental Association.
The University of Michigan School of Dentistry is one of two dental schools in Michigan. The average undergraduate GPA of the entering D. D. S. Class at the School of Dentistry is 3.5, with a science GPA of 3.4. The first dean of the School of Dentistry was Dr. Jonathan Taft, dean from the school's founding in 1875 until his retirement in 1903. Taft developed the four-year model of dental education, which became standard in American dental schools; the School of Dentistry was established as the College of Dental Surgery by the University of Michigan Board of Regents, following an appropriation by the Michigan Legislature of $3,000 for that purpose. The school's first class consisted of 20 students taught by three faculty members; the first women graduated from the school in 1880. In 1980, the school became the first dental school to provide graduate dental education. In 1910, Russell W. Bunting dean of the school, began his research into the causes and prevention of dental caries. In 1921, the school established its dental hygiene program and conferred its first Master of Science degree, the following year, the school became the first to offer graduate-degree training in orthodontics.
In 1927, the school adopted its current name. In 1938, the school and the W. K. Kellogg Foundation began to develop plans for a purpose-built dental school building. Construction of the Kellogg Building began the following year. In 1938, the School of Dentistry developed the first graduate program in dental public health in the United States under the leadership of Professor Kenneth A. Easlick. In 1945, the School worked with city officials in Grand Rapids, Michigan to establish a water fluoridation program, one of the first in the United States. In 1957, plans for a new dental building attached to the Kellogg Building were released. Construction began in 1966 on the project; the new building on North University Avenue was dedicated in 1971. In 1965, researchers from the School of Dentistry made their first trip to Egypt to study the orthodontics of ancient Egypt and Nubia. In 1976, researchers from the school discovered the 3,000-year-old mummy of Tiye, a Great Royal Wife to the Egyptian pharaoh Amenhotep III.
In 1967, the school established the Dental Research Institute, one of five nationwide funded by the National Institute of Dental Research. In 1972, the school established its summer dental community outreach clinics in Adrian and Stockbridge, Michigan. In 1998, renovations to the Kellogg Building began. On 1999, the school awarded its first two doctoral degrees in oral health sciences. In 2000, the school became the first in the nation to host the "Scientific Frontiers in Clinical Dentistry" program, with more than 1,500 dentists from across the country attending; the same year, the school announced five new community partnerships to provide oral health care services to the underserved across Michigan. The following people have served as deans of the School of Dentistry: 1875-1903: Jonathan Taft 1903-1906: Cyrenus G. Darling 1907: Willoughby D. Miller 1907-1916: Nelville Hoff 1916-1934: Marcus L.
