Presidents Message Two years have passed since the College of Physicians and Surgeons was amalgamated with the University of the Pacific. l am convinced that the Univer- sity has never observed a more significant milestone than that which saw one of the nation's greatest dental schools linked with the oldest chartered institution of higher education in California. On Iune l7 of this year, the second graduating class of the College of Physi- cians and Surgeons to receive its diplomas from the University of the Pacific became, officially, Doctors of Dental Surgery. This was the climax, for these 52 fine gentlemen, of many years of education, in most cases topped by eight years of study at the college level. No one in the state was prouder than I as I handed out diplomas to the P CS: S class of l964. And now this summer, as a new graduating class prepares to put its learning and supervised experience into use, as its past begins to prove itself by true achievement in dental practice, the University and the College join forces to build an even greater School of Dentistry. The class of '64 and those receiving degrees before you have managed to achieve greatness despite poor physical facilities. But now at last, on the horizon, the construction of a new college build- ing, available to its first class in l966, is eagerly anticipated. Long hours, months and years of work and of hoping by your Dean and others of the faculty and alumni, appear to have turned a dream into reality. Some day a class of dental students will start taking for granted the fine new facility at Sacramento and Webster. Meanwhile, you in the class of '64 can be exceedingly proud of having achieved your great scholastic record in the days when life was rough indeed-on l4th Street in San Francisco. My congratulations to you. Dr. Robert E. Burns , President, University of the Pacific

Dean's Message Of the health services dentistry is the most sen- sitive to family income. Increases in the amount of money available to families has very definitely increased the proportion of the population seeking care and can be expected to continue to do so. As the development of dental insurance plans and prepayment plans increase, the proportion cf the population seeking dental care will grow greater. Irrespective of this, the determination of the precise number of the dentists or dental schools subject to such a variety of variables that the validity of any figure calculated is seriously compromised. There is no question that increases in dental manpower must and should occur but the incumbent must bear a close relationship to the demand for dental service. It is far more important that the profession at- tempts to increase its potential or capacity for core before attempting to increase its numbers: as a corollary it is equally important that the profession utilize all preventive measures before increasing its manpower. There is no question that the preval- ence of periodontal disease does call for an in- crease in the number of periodontists. However, it also calls for implementation of teaching staffs and an implementation of research in dental schools to increase the proficiency of students in periodontal treatment. With respect to dental caries a restraining in- fluence on its prevalence is the first order of busi- ness, not increasing manpower. Increased instruc- tion in the use of topical fluorides, dietary fluorides, and water fluoridation are badly needed. There are twenty-two communities in California fluoridat- ing at the present time. Twenty-two cities cover a population of approximately one and one-half mil- lion. Another six or seven million Californians consume fluoridated water between 0.3 parts per million and 2 parts per million in those areas where the fluoride ion has a natural occurence in water. There are several steps within the practice of dentistry and within dental education that may be taken to increase the efficiency with which the pro- fession renders care. Fifty per cent of the practicing dentists have between 800 and 900 patients. Only ten per cent have more than two thousand patients. This is by no means compatible with the potential capacity for dental care that actually exists. The dental practitioner is solely responsible for dental treatment and all decisions and iudgments related to it. However, this does not prevent him from utilizing a dental assistant and in such a man- ner has to increase his potential for care. The in- crease in work load achieved above the normal is spoken of as a dental equivalent. An increase of fifty per cent in work load is the equivalent of one and one-half dentists. lt is well documented that the effective utilization of qualified auxiliary personnel, additional oper- atories, and modern operative procedures will per- mit a marked increase in the available dental service for more patients. In quantitative terms, one dental assistant can increase the patient load by about one-third and two assistants with two oper- atories may increase the patient service by at least sixty-five per cent. The trend as evidenced in the data from the American Dental Association indicates a substan- tial rise annually in the percentage of dentists who are utilizing one or two auxiliary personnel and the result of increase in activity. Assuming that every nonsalaried dentist who practices will have at least one full-time assistant and that twenty per cent will have at least two assistants by l975, then eighty per cent of the nonsalaried dentists could increase their potential load by at least one-third by employ- ing a second dental assistant. The estimated total of dentists that will be needed by 1975 is ll8,l42. If eighty per cent of the dentists increase their ef- ficiency as indicated above they could increase their number in terms of equivalent dentists by an additional 25,455 lf this is added to the ll8,l42 dentists needed in 1975 a sum of 143,597 dentists results. This is 10,000 more in total of dental equiv- alents than is required in the 1975 estimate. Continuing education and research in educa- tional methods ultimately lend themselves to in- creased efficiency and practice. The dental school has the obligation for providing opportunity for such study throughout the professional life of the practitioner.
