History

The Glasgow Dental School was formed as part of Anderson's College in 1879.[1] It moved to Dalhousie Street in 1903.[1]

The current hospital is a category B listed Art Deco building on Renfrew Street which was designed by Wylie, Wright and Wylie and completed in 1931.[2] The Dental School began issuing the Bachelor of Dental Surgery Degree of the University of Glasgow in 1948. A large extension fronting Sauchiehall Street was completed in the brutalist style by Melville Dundas & Whitson in 1970.[3] The Glasgow Dental Education Centre, which is located adjacent to the Dental School, provides post-graduate and distance dental education.[4]
