    Just a random question:

    Do dental schools solely utilize the ADA's "Universal" system (1-32) for numbering teeth, or do they also teach the Zsigmondy (or Palmer) system for numbering?

    Thanks!

    Heya Gavin,

    Here at UB we did indeed cover the International and Palmer systems, but we concentrate on the Universal system because that's the one most used here in the U.S.. All our patient charts here at UB use the universal system. I would suspect most if not all other U.S. dental schools also use the universal.

    HTH!

    Stick to universal, it's what they use on the boards.
