Collection Historical Note

The first dental college in Missouri was the Missouri Dental College, which was located in St. Louis and admitted its first class of students in 1866. At the time the school was only the 6th dental college in the United States.  In 1892 the Missouri Dental College became the Dental Department of Washington University. The name was changed several times over the years -- in 1909 to the Washington University Dental School; in 1919 to the Washington University School of Dentistry; in 1974 to the Washington University School of Dental Medicine.

Co-education came to the dental school in 1908, and the first woman graduate of the W.U. Dental School was Sophia Wachsmuth, of Munich, Germany, who graduated in 1910.  In 1950, the School of Dentistry opened admissions to African-American students.  The Washington University School of Dental Medicine closed after 125 years of existence in 1991.
