Dr. Clifton O. Dummett, USC Professor-emeritus, received an Honorary Doctor of Science degree during the 2004 Convocation at Meharry Medical College for his exemplary 63-year career in dentistry. He graduated from Northwestern University School of Dentistry in 1941. He then took up a teaching position at Meharry Medical College as Professor and Chair of the Department of Periodontics (as a pioneer in periodontics), Oral Diagnosis, and Oral Medicine. He became Deputy Director of Dental Education. In 1947, at the age of 28, Dr. Dummett became the Dean of the Meharry School of Dentistry, the youngest dental school dean in the United States. Under his administration, the School of Dentistry was fully accredited by the ADA Council on Dental Education, the first time an Afro-American dental school had achieved such an honor. He resigned in 1949 because of the segregationist policies of the Regional Plan for Education, an organization that Meharry participated in.

In 1962, he sponsored an ADA resolution that effectively eliminated racial discriminatory restrictions from the ADA constituent organizations. In 1965, he was appointed associate professor at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry, the first African American to serve on that faculty.
He was named 1960 Dentist of the Year by the National Dental Association, served for 22 years as the Editor-in-Chief of the NDA publications, was appointed in 1977 as a member of the President’s Committee on National health Insurance, elected President of the Los Angeles Dental Society and received the 1982 NCAAP’s Academic, Cultural, Technological, Scientific Olympics Award.


Dummett Scholarship

www.ndafoundation.org [cached]

Clifton Dummett

The Dr. Clifton & Lois Dummett Scholarship is named in honor of Dr. Clifton O. Dummett, (May 20, 1919 - September 7, 2011). Dr. Clifton O. Dummett, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of the University of Southern California, studied at Howard and Roosevelt Universities before earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Northwestern University in 1941. He earned master's degrees in periodontics and public health from Northwestern and the University of Michigan, respectively.
In 1947, Dummett was named dean of the School of Dentistry at Meharry Medical College, where he was the youngest dean in the United States at 28. An advocate for social justice and equality for all people, it was Dummett's resolution in the American Dental Association (ADA) House of Delegates that led to the lifting of restrictive membership within the organization. He served the National Dental Association (NDA) for 22 years as editor in chief.
