Profile America — Thursday, July 17th. Harvard University, founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1636, is the oldest institution of higher education in the United States. Thus, it was already a bit long in the tooth when on this date in 1867 when it opened the first dental school associated with a medical school. It was also the first to be permanently established by a university, making the full scholarly and scientific resources of a university available to dental education. The first class commenced on November 4 the following year with an enrollment of just 16 students. Today, there are some 147,000 dentists practicing in more than 131,000 offices across the country, employing over 850,000 people.
