The Department of Dental Hygiene Records contain course syllabi, photographs, sample forms, and miscellaneous printed matter documenting the organization and teaching methodology of the department during the period 1968-83. The material describes the intellectual content of the courses dental students experienced and demonstrates the practical skills developed by students in the department's dental lab on campus. Much of this material was part of a reception in 1983 to publicize the department.
The records are arranged in three series: Series 1, Curriculum Records, 1968; Series 2, Miscellaneous Records, 1983; and Series 3, Photographs, undated.
Method of Acquisition
The Department of Dental Hygiene Records were acquired by the University Archives in July 1991 from the B. Carroll Reece Museum. The museum has received the early records of the dental hygiene program from the Office of the Vice President for Information Resources.
Processing of the collection was completed in February 1998.
