Biographical / Historical

The Georgetown University Dental School began a Dental Hygiene program, restricted to women students, in 1935. An intense 35 week program of lectures, recitations, lab work, and practice in assisting in clinics, it was terminated in 1937 due to declining enrollments. Women were not able to enroll in the Dental School as DDS students until 1954.
