Dentistry

Temple University School of Dentistry 

Philadephia, Pennsylvania

"'Temple Dental' is the second oldest dental school in continuous existence, chartered 134 years ago in 1863. Paradoxically, it may also be considered the youngest, given that the new clinical facility, a state-of-the-art marvel costing $41 million, opened for use in 1991. Because the school enjoys full-fledged support and commitment from Temple University proper (and the State of Pennsylvania) and full-accreditation status from the American Dental Association, it is certain to continue delivering both its predoctoral and postgraduate programs well into the 21st century."
