Georgetown University dental student with patient
Georgetown University acquired the Washington Dental College, the first dental college in the city, in 1901. The college was re-named the Dental Department of Georgetown University and one of the college's founders, Dr. William N. Cogan, was elected dean. In 1920 the first x-ray machine was installed. The school was originally housed in an addition to the School of Medicine building at 920 H Street, NW, but moved, along with the School of Medicine, onto the Georgetown campus in 1930. Applications to the school began to decline in the late 1970's, a pattern that reflected a national trend, and, in 1987, the decision was made to phase out the school by the summer of 1990.Repository: Booth Family Center for Special Collections.
