SCHOOL HISTORY: The Philadelphia Dental College opened in 1863 and later became Temple University School of Dentistry, the second oldest Dental School in the United States.
In 1 876 the school became the first school to institute a department of Oral Surgery. In 1897 the school moved to 18th and Buttonwood Streets. The Dental College at that location, formally became Temple University School of Dentistry in 1907. In 1943, Temple Dental School moved to 3223 North Broad Street in what we ironically refer to as the “Old Building.AND NOW!!!
Three entire floors of clinical facilities equipped with the finest laboratories and operatories make our school in 1991 THE STATE OF THE ART! Congratulations to the administration for making the dream of this building a reality.
2nd Floor Clinical Operatory
3rd Floor Pre-Clinical LabDear Class of 1991,
First of all, I would like to thank Bob Bcntz and everyone else who worked so hard to make this yearbook a reality. It was a tremendous effort, and I am sure that as time goes on our appreciation will only increase when we look at such a wonderful reminder of our years at Temple Dental (assuming, of course, that we do want to remember).
I’m just kidding, because in spite of all the struggles we have endured, there has been an awful lot of good here — helpful instructors, caring staff, enjoyable patients, and especially, ourselves.
When I look back on my years in dental school, my fondest memories will be of my classmates. We are a great group of people. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to my special friends here, who were so instrumental in helping me to make it through. I hope to see you dowrn the road.
I wish everyone the best of good fortune in the future, and once again, thank you for all you have given me.
Frank Nunan, President
Class of 1991
P.S. put the wrong quote for my Mother on my own page. She always says that “Everything happens for a reason." Given all of our experiences here, I hope she's right.DEDICATION
1991 was a year of great international drama. As dental students, we were constantly aware that our struggles to emerge as dental professionals were minimized by thoughts of the millions of individuals whose very survival would hang in the balance of what was to become the most impressive military display in the United States history. We would be remiss in our need to express our sense of gratitude and pride if we did not share the honor of this year's dedication with the hundreds of thousands of American soldiers who so gallantly gave of themselves to liberate Kuwait and restore balance to the international community. God bless you all.
We are very fortunate here at Temple Dental school to have had a faculty member who not only gave unselfishly of himself at our institution, but also as the highest ranking dental officer in the U.S. Navy. This year marks the retirement of Admiral Paul Farrell from his tenure at Temple where he served as both clinical professor and chairman of the Operative Dentistry Department. He previously commanded the entire U.S. Naval Dental Corps during his twenty year naval career. Dr. Farrell is a warm and approachable man who always enjoyed sharing his knowledge with students. We wish him well in his retirement and dedicate this year’s Odontolog to Dr. Farrell for his contributions to both our school and the dental

Mom Dad, Thank you so much for all you have done these last four years. You have helped me come to the realization that my achievements are not determined by my abilities alone but by the desire I possess to reach them. I share this accomplishment with you for without you I would not have come this far.
To my siblings and their families, thank you for accepting all those collect calls and especially for always being interested and supportive. Richard, your unquestioned acceptance even in my cranky times has especially helped me through this last year. Thank you for all the happy times and for believing in me sometimes more than I believed in myself. (I still think I would have liked you more if you hadn't wrecked my 3 unit bridge first year — but I'm almost over that now.)

Well, it's finally over. No more Microbiology, early morning appointments, or calling home for money. But throughout it all you both were there for me. When times were rough and I thought of giving up, you both believed in me and gave me the support I needed. I might not have said it often enough, but I love you both and I just want to say THANK YOU!

168The future is in our hands — now where our hands are in the future is another issue altogether.
“Livin' in the lap of luxury.” (Jones Hall)
Freshman year: For some of us, it was the realization of a life-long dream; for others, it was a last minute decision. But here we were on our way to the professional life. The plan wfas simple enough—take a few courses, pass a few exams, and bam — we’re dentists! Who were we kiddin?
It all started with dental terminology. We struggled many nights memorizing terms, classifications, number codes, nomenclature, and of course, the definition of incisal guidance which will always haunt us. Memorize, memorize, memorize. Don’t ask why just memorize! Protocol soon became a household word; dime and dime again. Our evenings were filled with lab work while stone and plaster followed
us everywhere — hands, shoes, shirts, pants, watches, etc.I am sure that everyone was happy to hear
that we were the last class to be blessed with the numerous funfilled hours of tooth carving. A trade, however, we probably have utilized many times in concept so they say!! And let’s not forget the microscope... I still cringe when the thought occurs. Also we will forever remember the putrid smell of cadavers; cramming sessions; K questions.
Sophomore year: But its got to get better! Yeah. Who needs summer vacations anyway! Lab hours increased, things were suddenly turning much harder. Some couldn’t handle the heat and got out, while the rest were eager to get pounded more. Examples—Micro, Physio, Endo, C B, Perio, labs, labs, labs... But when the dust finally settled, there we were with our first patient folders with thoughts of relief-on-the-way!
uNew Juniors — it has such a wonderful sound to it. We proudly explored the clinic floor, burning with anticipation. Most were at the first summer session in hopes of practicing dentistry. Frustration soon set in. “Chair reservations?” Little did we know that Jamie would soon be deemed God. But we worked hard and soon became accustomed to the system, until they decided to change it. In fact, the word “change” became a kind of theme for us for the last two years. But through it all we held our ground and looked way into the future — graduation.
Senior year brought home a feeling of accomplishment and final jeopardy. There is no turning back now! We were finally starting to see the light. The only thing left was to get smacked about with many boards, e.g., National II, Mocks, Nerbs, and Retakes. Once again, we should be proud to know that completing Pharm before the boards was now part of the past. Next year’s past. We still got lucky! Yeah...
It is hard to summarize and even come close to the immeasurable experiences we’ve undergone since day one at Temple. History seems to repeat itself time and time again with every class. Nothing anybody said to warn us would have prepared us for what was in store. Though we might of said that as the years past, our class has grown distant, especially during Senior year. However, we have come to know ourselves better and we have joined with one another as vibrant young professionals. The class of 1991 has left its mark on Temple and I am very proud to have been a contributor. But please, if someone ever asks you to be an editor... just say NO!
Good luck to all, may happiness and success follow you forever!
