School of Dentistry

Centennial Celebrations

In 1917 just nine years after the University of Alberta was founded by Alberta’s first Premier, A.C. Rutherford, the formation of a dental school came to fruition.  Since that time, the school has developed into a world class teaching and research institute, responding to the needs of the community, adapting to the times and facing each decade’s unique challenges. 

As the first and only university providing dental education in Western Canada until 1958, the School of Dentistry has a history of which it can be proud of.
