Gorgas

The Gorgas Odontological Honorary Society

The Gorgas Odontological Honorary Society was organized in 1916 as an honorary student dental society with scholarship as a basis for admission. The society was named after Dr. Ferdinand J. S. Gorgas, a pioneer in dental education, a teacher of many years' experience, and a major contributor to dental literature. It was with the idea of perpetuating his name that the society chose its title.
