THE SEAL OF THE SCHOOL OF DENTISTRY OF
THE UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS CITY1
A SEAL is a design which usually presents the ideals of a nation, an
institution or an estate. If, by proper symbolism, it represents accurately
that for which it stands it can portray, at a glance, far more than could
volumes of the written word.
The periphery of this insignia is formed by the Latin equivalent for
"The University of Kansas City-School of Dentistryf' The central figure
shows the torch of knowledge about which is entwined the single serpent
of Aesculapius, the Roman God of Medicine, to illustrate that we seek
knowledge in the art of healing. The wings of Mercury or Hermes are
the only remnants of the Caduseus which for so long symbolized medicine
but which actually bears no mythological relationship to that art.
The Greek Delia for dentistry and Omicron for Odont meaning tooth
signify to what branch of the medical science we are devoted. The open
volumesuperimposed over the central figure bears the Latin inscription,
"Omnia Vincit Scientia" literally, "Knowledge conquers all things"--our
motto. At the base is seen "founded 1881 A.D."
It is hoped that this seal replaces that of The University now used on
most of the literature of the School of Dentistry.
