Held at Rochester, N. Y., July 7-10, 1914.


Session called to order at 8:30 P. M. by President Brown.

THE PRESIDENT: Ladies and Gentlemen, the Third General Session of the National Dental Association will now come to order. In behalf of the Association I wish to express the deep appreciation of the dental profession for the privilege that is ours on this occasion. We have had with us at this meeting Dr. Victor C. Vaughan, the President of the American Medical Association. We are signally honored on this occasion by having with us our honored guest, Dr. Joseph Colt Bloodgood, of Johns Hopkins University. I take great pleasure at this time in presenting to you Dr. Bloodgood (Applause).

DR. BLOODGOOD: Mr. President, Members of the National Dental Association, Ladies and Gentlemen: I assure you that I appreciate this honor and this opportunity to bring before you some conditions that are on the border line between medicine and dentistry. I think you will all agree with me, and the medical world will also, that the dental pro

fession guards, or at least if given an opportunity will guard, one of the most important portals or entrances or gateways thru which disease may enter the human body. I shall discuss tonight chiefly malignant diseases, but perhaps the larger group is the infections which find their way thru the mouth cavity. I shall not speak of your opportunities of preventing those infections, but shall confine myself to tumors or malignant disease. In the same sense, perhaps, you can prevent these diseases.

(Dr. Bloodgood's paper was published in the March issue of The Journal, page 1.)

PRESIDENT: We also are honored tonight to have with us Dr. Grover W. Wende, of Buffalo, N. Y., President of the New York State Medical Society, who will give us a paper on "Oral Manifestations in Syphillis." (Applause.)

(Paper will appear in later issue.) Session adjourned.
