First class: The inaugural class of the Touro College of Dental Medicine at New York Medical College, which held its grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony Sept. 28, poses for a photo with administrators and staff. The dental school is the first to open in New York in 50 years. The dental school includes a four-year pre-doctoral program for students; a continuing education program for practicing dentists; and a 132-chair community dental clinic. Touro’s inaugural class has about 110 students. When at full capacity, the school will include about 440 students.
