Founded a century ago this year, the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine aimed to integrate dental education into the modern research university: it was only the fourth such university-affiliated dental school in the country. Dean Emeritus Allan J. Formicola explores the history of the school in a lecture on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 6pm. It celebrates not only the College’s centennial but also the publication of Dr. Formicola’s history, A Dental School on University Lines: The Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, 1916-2016 (Columbia University Press) – the first full-length history of the dental school.
