What is the Clinic Club?

Eight prominent dentists in southeastern Michigan founded the Detroit Dental Clinic Club in 1914. Two of the founders, Drs. Marcus Ward and Russell Bunting, later served as deans of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry.  For nearly a century, the Clinic Club has been a training ground for dental clinicians and leaders in dentistry. SHARING knowledge with the profession is the primary purpose of the Clinic ClubDetroit Dental Clinic Club members contribute time, energy and skills to improve the art and science of dentistry. In return for their efforts, clinicians enjoy professional fellowship, experience accomplishment and discover one of the basic principles of successful living—The more you give, the more you receive in return. The Clinic Club is organized into Sections representing various dental specialty areas. Each Section is autonomous and plans its own programs and activities during the year. The Clinic Clubmeets three times each year as main or general interest meetings that include all Sections and all members.
