In preparing this paper I have had before me the time cards of several of the very best dental schools that this country has produced.

I will even state the matter more strongly: For the average dental student any good dental course is better than is the best medical course for the average medical student. Unquestionably the past demand has been, and the present one is, for a dentist who can meet the ordinary questions that arise in the
