Dr. MerrittArthur H. Merritt, D.D.S. (1870- 1961) was one of the early pioneers in periodontics. In his later years, he was known as the “Dean of Periodontists.” His office was located on 5th Avenue in New York for many years.

Dr. Merritt was one of the organizers of the American Academy of Periodontology and was very proud of the fact that he had attended every meeting but one, since its organization. In 1925 he served as President of the Academy. He was author of one of the first textbooks on periodontology and wrote many articles that have been published in that field. He taught periodontics at New York University School of Dentistry. Dr. Merritt was the first Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and served on the Board for several years. He received the Fauchard Medal in 1932, awarded by Dental Survey for Advancing the Field of Preventive Dentistry.

Dr. Merritt visited Baylor College of Dentistry annually for many years and was a strong supporter of the Baylor training concept.

The ARTHUR H. MERRITT MEMORIAL LECTURESHIP in Periodontics was established at Baylor College of Dentistry in December 1971. This lectureship in 2014 marks the 43rd annual memorial lectureship.  Because of the thoughtfulness and generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Merritt, graduate and undergraduate students of the college and members of the Southwest Society of Periodontists are privileged to share in the wisdom and knowledge of an outstanding lecturer in the field of periodontology.
