ADA Presidents Album
Doctor Winter, of St. Louis, became the seventy-third president of the Association at the 1935 meeting in New Orleans. In that year the United States Supreme Court upheld the decision by the Oregon Supreme Court vindicating the state law restricting advertising by dentists. Doctor Winter developed and taught advanced methods of tooth removal. His textbook explaining his methods became the leading work on exodontia. After teaching at St. Louis University for several years, he became professor of exodontia at the Washington University School of Dentistry in St. Louis. He served as president of the St. Louis Dental Society and the Missouri State Dental Association. He was born in New York in 1878 and died in 1940.
