Friday and Saturday, September 16th and 17th, 2016

In June of 1866, a new dental school was opened in St. Louis, the first dental school west of the Mississippi River. In June of 1991, the Washington University School of Dental Medicine graduated its last class, 125 years after it opened as Missouri Dental College. In the 125 years of operation, the school had five different names and six different locations and was the gateway to many advances in Dentistry.

“The proud tradition of the Washington University School of Dental Medicine will be fondly remembered, a long as we keep it alive in our hearts and minds.” — Jack Gilster, June, 1991

2016 will be the 150th year since the opening of the Dental School and will also mark 25 years since the closing of our Alma Mater. Your Alumni Association is planning an extra special Sesquicentennial Celebration to mark the occasion. We have reserved the Starlight Room at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel. This elegant roof top room provides a beautiful view of the City and Forest Park and is a lovely setting for this celebration.
