New Dental School to be Built
at Hebrew U. by Alpha Omega

By SHARYANNE WINER
In the early 1950's Israel was
faced with the necessity of
building a new dental school
to replace the one lost to Jor-
dan during the War of Inde-
pendence.
The story of the inception of
Israel's new dental school, to
be built with funds raised by
American and Canadian mem-
bers of Alpha Omega Dental
Fraternity is told by Dr. Ino
Sciaky.
Sciaky, dean of the Hebrew
University-Hadassah School of
Dentistry founded by the Alpha
Om e g a Fraternity, recently
visited Detroit. He was honor
guest at a victory dinner cele-
brating the culmination of a
drive in this city, Flint and
Toledo for funds totaling more
than $53,000 to be used for the
construction of Israel's perma-
nent dental school.
Said Sciaky, "The majority
of dentists who immigrated
from Europe following World
War II were middle-aged. We
wanted a school to fill the gaps
with young dentists."
A school was also needed to
re-orient dentists having widely
varied knowledge and back-
grounds and to assure new
towns and frontiers of prOper
dental care.
"Our main concern is pre-
ventive dentistry for chil-
dren," said Sciaky.
In 1953 a provisional school
was started and Alpha Omega
promised the university to
raise money for a permanent
building. Three classes have
been graduated from the tem-
porary school.
The proviSional school was
planned for classes of 15 stu-
dents but as the number of
applicants increased, classes
grew to 25 students. Lack of
space and facilities made post-
graduate study impossible but
this will be remedied by a
research floor to be included in
the new building.
Students are accepted on the
basis of "merits," Sciaky said.
Aptitude tests and a private
interview are among the de-
cisive factors. Students are also
required to speak English.
Classes are taught only in
Hebrew, although the texts are
similar to those used in
America. The ladies auxiliaries
of Alpha Omega loan books to

students who cannot afford to
buy them.
Tuition is $230 a year, but
as many students are the chil-
dren of immigrants, loans
cover most of the cost.
_ All students are required to
write a thesis before gradua-
tion on the basis of clinical or
basic science research. Few
American dental schools re-
quire this of degree candidates,
Sciaky said.
Recently two v is it in g
American deans told Sciaky
that the Hebrew University
Dental School can be com-
pared to any good school in
the United States.
The 15,000 members of
Alpha Omega, in addition to
undertaking support of the
,provisional school, haVe raised
a total of $1,250,000 for the
new building. Hadassah has
a g r e e d to - pay maintenance
costs for the school amounting
to $300,000 per year.
A native of Salonica, Greece,
Sciaky was raised in Geneva
where he at t ended dental
school and has lived in Israel
since 1937. He is married and
has two teen-aged children.
