Baltimore College of Dental Surgery

In 1840, the Baltimore College of Dental surgery was founded as an independent institution and the first dental college in the world. Two dental practitioners, Dr. Horace H. Hayden and Dr. Chapin A. Harris, played a major role in establishing and promoting formal dental education as well as the development of dentistry as a profession. Although the school was the first of its kind in the world, it was not associated with a medical college.
