|Dr Merton Henry Greene|
|Birth: ||Jan. 20, 1882|
Dr. Merton Henry Greene practiced dentistry in Penacook, Merrimack county, New Hampshire. This small New Hampshire town is a mere 53 miles from Gardner, Massachusetts where he was born, grew up and where his parents (and now him) are buried. His father, George E. Greene, was a dentist in Gardner.
Dr. Merton H. Greene was a 1906 graduate of Harvard University Dental School. As such he held a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree.
The Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree is the one awarded by the majority of dental schools in the United States. The Baltimore College of Dental Surgery was established in 1840 and was THE FIRST DENTAL SCHOOL IN THE WORLD and thus the first to grant the DDS degree.
The DMD degree was first used in 1867 when Harvard established the first university affiliated dental school. The reason this degree is DMD rather than DDM is that it stands for the Latin "Dentariae Medicinae Doctor."
