Dismantling discrimination in dental education.
In existence for more than 100 years, the schools of medicine and dentistry of Howard University and Meharry Medical College have been responsible for training the majority of African-American physicians and dentists.
The dissolution of the doctrine of « separate but equal » has resulted in the acceptance of larger numbers of African-American health professionals to America's medical and dental educational institutions.
The University of Tennessee School of Dentistry is a primary example of a formerly segregated institution that has changed its policies and presently possesses a respectable number of African-American dental alumni.
In a recent acknowledgment of this fact on Alumni Day, black graduates of this University celebrated and sponsored a program to increase the number of African-American matriculants at the school.
