Instruction in dental surgery can be obtained now not only in London, but also at many of the large provincial centres. The following are brief particulars of the various hospitals and schools.


The Royal Dental Hospital of London and London School of Dental Surgery.

The Dental Hospital, founded 1858, was opened for the reception of patients at 32, Soho Square, and in March, 1874, was removed to more commodious premises at Leicester Square. The rapid growth of the school made enlargement of the premises a necessity, and, thanks to the munificence of the late Sir Edwin Saunders, another wing was added to the building in 1883, giving increased accommodation, and making the Hospital the largest for dental students. The most complete arrangements are provided for the education of students preparing for the L.D.S. diploma of the Royal College of Surgeons in the new building, opened in March, 1901.

The hospital is open every afternoon except Saturday, in addition to the morning, under the supervision of a special staff and house surgeons, this extension of the hours of work having been found necessary to afford the additional opportunities for practical work and teaching which the rapid growth of the institution demanded.

The officers for the day give practical teaching at the chair-side, enabling the students to acquire experience in the treatment of the many minor difficulties of their profession.

Three demonstrators are appointed, whose duty it is to teach the students, and on their respective days to assist the new students in their work. During each session they hold classes and give instruction in Operative Dental Surgery.

A demonstration is given in each week by a member of the staff for second year's students. The whole of the staff demonstrate and give lectures on various modes of practice, and any form of work in which they are especially skilled.

The mechanical laboratory is under the care and superintendence of the lecturer on Dental Mechanics, and of a skilled mechanic. Students are required to take models, manufacture and fit in the mouth dentures for those patients allotted to them by members of the staff, the actual manufacture being under the superintendence of the mechanical assistant, while the adapting to the mouth is supervised by members of the staff.

It is intended, in this manner, to supply a portion of the student's education heretofore unprovided for, and to more perfectly equip him for the exigencies

of dental practice. It enables him to be in a better position to meet the requirements of the College of Surgeons of England with regard to Mechanical Dentistry, in which subject the Board of Examiners for the L.D.S. demand a practical examination from candidates for that diploma.

The medical tutor attends and helps the students in preparing for their examination for four months before each examination.

The Storer Bennett Research Scholarship, value £50, is awarded triennially. The Saunders and Walker Scholarships, value £20 each, are awarded annually.

Messrs. C. Ash and Sons give a prize of the value of five guineas each year. Prizes are awarded by the lecturers, and a special one s presented to the best operator for the year.

The eight house-surgeoncies are valuable additions to the prizes, and are filled by students of the hospital holding the L.D.S.

Fee for two years' hospital practice required by the curriculum, including lectures, £50 in one payment on entry, or 50 guineas in two yearly instalments. The curriculum requires two years to be passed at a general hospital. The fee for this is about £55. Both hospitals can be attended simultaneously.

The fee for three years' tuition in Mechanical Dentistry is 150 guineas. The Educational Museum is now in working order, and is of service to the students in preparing for the Dental Examination.

The Calendar may be obtained on application to the Dean, who attends at the hospital on Wednesday mornings from 10.30 till 12 o'clock throughout the year.


The members of the staff, beside teaching at the chair-side, give special Demonstrations.

All New Students pass through a preliminary course under the care of a Demonstrator.

The members of the staff, besides teaching at the chair-side, give special Demonstrations.

The Mechanical, Bacteriological, and Metallurgical Laboratories are fully equipped and under the supervision of competent teachers. Both in Practical Mechanics and in the other subjects every opportunity is afforded students to comply with the requirements of the Royal College of Surgeons.

A prize for Practical Dentistry is offered for competition by the four Students who obtain the highest proportion of marks in the practical part of the Examination for the Second Year's Prize.

Instruction is given to Students in making dentures, regulation plates, and mechanical appliances for the treatment of dental irregularities and oral deformities. Pupils for the Mechanical Apprenticeship are not accepted. The Mechanical Laboratory is under the care of a skilled mechanic.

Preparation Classes.-Before both the First and Final Examinations for the diploma of L.D.S., Classes and Demonstrations are given by the Demonstrators. Continuous instruction is afforded by means of a separate morning and fternoon Staff of Dental Officers, who give Clinical Demonstrations.
