Biography/History

The Society of the Alumni of the Department of Dentistry was formed on March 1, 1881 by the first three graduation classes from the University of Pennsylvania's new Department of Dentistry. Those present at the first meeting elected officers, formed a committee to draft a constitution, and sent out notification to other alumni. Over the years, the Society has grown as the Department of Dentistry developed into the School of Dental Medicine. One of the Society's activities was the publication of the Penn Dental Journal. Today the organization exists as the Dental Alumni Society.
