ADA Presidents Album
Doctor Bogle, of Nashville, became the sixty-seventh president of the Association at the 1929 meeting in Washington. In his presidential address the following year, Doctor Bogle said "All state society organizations should be awakened to the danger that has already developed in some sections which would recognize and legalize the taking of impressions and the making of full dentures by laboratory men.'' Doctor Bogle held both the D.D.S. and M.D. degrees. After practicing general dentistry for 23 years, he limited his practice to exodontia and radiography. He was professor of exodontia, radiography and mouth surgery at Vanderbilt School of Dentistry from 1905 to 1926 and dean of the faculty the last seven years of that period. He served as president of the Tennessee State Dental Association. He was born in Tennessee in 1875 and died in 1941.
