Beginning in 1876, composite class photographs of each Dentistry graduating class were created. The practice continues today. Most of this collection is in the style of composite photographs where individual portraits and names are compiled onto a single board to create one image. 

Missing years: No composite photo has been found for 1947. There was no graduating class in 1904 because the requirements to graduate changed from a 3 to 4 year program that year.

The Bentley Historical website has a Searchable Name Index for Dental School Graduates, 1876-2008. If you need to learn when a student graduated, you may ask a Bentley Archivist or visit the Sindecuse Museum. This information will assist you with locating which class photo to search.

Please fill out one of our donation forms if you have a class photo from one of the missing years to donate or if it can be lended to us for copying purposes.
