Temple’s Kornberg School of Dentistry observed 150 years of education and innovation earlier this month. Founded in 1863 as the Philadelphia Dental College, Kornberg is the second oldest dental school in the U.S., and has a long history of providing needed care in the community. “Our motto is to be both a patient care center and educational center – it’s like two sides of the same coin,” said Kornberg Dean Amid Ismail. “We want to be more focused on the community we serve. Rather than they come to us, we want to go out into the community.”
