Faculty of Dentistry, U of T

The Faculty of Dentistry of the University of Toronto was founded by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario in 1875 as the School of Dentistry. Seven years earlier, in 1868, the College had been given the dual responsibilities of licensing and dental education when the Province of Ontario, in one of its first legislative actions, passed the "Act Respecting Dentistry".
