Doerr Views Cuban Dentistry
Romney To Fashion New Agency
By STEVEN HALLER
Where dental treatment is con-
cerned, Cuba, under the Castro
regime, shows a striking contrast
between impressive programs of
training at the University of Ha-
vana on the one hand, and in-

Robert E. Doerr of the dental
school said recently.
Dean Doerr, who has made an
on-the-spot study of dental edu-
cation in Cuba under the auspices
of the Pan American Health Or-
ganization, explained that "every.-
thing in Cuba is now on a hurry-
up basis, and they are struggling
to make up for lost time."
This comes about because the
University of Havana was closed
for two and one-half years during
the revolution, while many pro-
Batista administrators and facul-
ty fled the country. After Castro
took over and the government had
a chance to stabilize somewhat,
the administration of the univer-
sity was reorganized-especially its
health sciences division-prior to
the school's reopening.
"Under the current system, the,
medical sciences department of the
university is divided into a medical
school, a dental school and the In-
stitute of Basic Sciences. The last-
named body serves as a service
unit for the other two divisions.
Each division has its own director
"Students of medicine or dent-
istry spend the first year of their
higher education in the Institute;
of Basic Sciences and then enter
the dental school or the medical
school," he explained.-
Dean Doerr compared this set-j
up to the structure at the Uni-
versity, noting that the coursest

School and are not an .administra-
Revolution vs. Evolution
"As far as concepts go, the'
Cubans are as advanced as we
are. But they adopted many ideas
in a revolutionary atmosphere, not
caring whose toes they stepped on
to bring their plans to fruition;
whereas we who are in an evolu-
tionary atmosphere go more slow-
ly," Dean Doerr said.
Dean Doerr explained that Cub-
an training techniques in the past
have concentrated on certain clini-
cal phases of dentistry to the ex-
clusion of providing much empha-
sis on the preventative aspects of
"Now they are becoming more
interested in such special areas as
oral diagnosis, dental treatment
for children and treatment of
supporting tissues of the mouth,"

with their studies.
In contrast to government clin-
ics, which are examples of poor
care and treatment, students are
given thorough training; so that
perhaps future clinics will be bet-
ter able to serve the general popu-
lation, Dean Doerr said.
He concluded that "nothing we
saw in Cuba is anything we have
not already thought of as being an
interesting possibility. But because
we live in a totally different en-
vironment, we would not find it
possible to rush into such plans
without considering the feelings
of others involved, as is often
done in Cuba.
"Their ideas may be good, but
they don't have the personnel yet4
