To the Editor:—
Your editorial of Aug 9 (193:535, 1965) on medicine's record in continuing education says that medicine "is so far ahead of almost every other professional field in this regard that there is hardly any basis for comparison." Dentistry has a group formally organized in 1952, whose main objective is continuing education for all dentists. The schools, and the ADA Council on Education have recognized this great need for keeping men informed of the current advances in dentistry, and the journals are regularly publishing lists of courses offered. This has been a concerted effort on the part of a group of dedicated men, with the result that the courses offered, as well as the participants, have multiplied gratifyingly over the decade.
