Eastman Dental Featured in ADA Sesquicentennial Book

February 3, 2010

Several  former Eastman Dental staff, faculty and alumni are featured in the American Dental Association’s (ADA) new book,  150 Years of the American Dental Association, A Pictorial History 1859-2009.

In coffee-table style format, the book is the culmination of efforts to collect historical dental images and stories to celebrate 150 years of the ADA.

Eastman dental’s contribution to dentistry is reflected in the book’s description of  Dr. Michael Buonocore’s acid etch technique, Dr. Harvey Burkhart’s role in the FDI World Dental Federation, and  Dr. Basil  Bibby and Dr. Jack Caton’s recognition of  numerous ADA awards.

Bibby library has  purchased a copy of the book.  Please feel free to stop in and take a look.
