The dentist is the physician and surgeon of the mouth and his work is essential to the community. In this connection Dr. John Charles Ruman is rendering important and valuable service to his fellowmen and his ability has won him high standing in professional circles of Amsterdam, his native city. He was born August 24, 1892, and is a son of Charles and Angie Ruman. He attended the public schools of the city and his higher education was received in the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, from which he was graduated in 1913, with the degree of D. D. S. He located for practice in Albany, New York, and for two years was associated with Dr. William Booth. He returned to Amsterdam in 1915 and in July of that year formed a partnership with Dr. William A. Mabie, who has long been recognized as one of the foremost exponents of dental surgery in the city. Their office is supplied with the most modern equipment and the firm of Mabie & Ruman conducts an extensive practice, enjoying an enviable degree of professional prestige.

On August 17, 1913, Dr. Ruman was married to Miss Agnes Sherman Whiting, a daughter of Edward S. Whiting of Washington, D. C. Dr. and Mrs. Ruman have two children: Edward Danford and Marion Van Wormer Ruman. The former was born in 1915 and the latter in 1917. Dr. Ruman is identified with the Masonic fraternity, belonging to Welcome Lodge, No. 829, F. & A. M.; Amsterdam Chapter, No. 81, R. A. M.; Johnstown Council, R. & S. M.; Holy Cross Commandery, K. T., at Gloversville; Albany Sovereign Consistory, A. & A. S. R.; and Oriental Temple, A. A. O. N. M. S., of Troy, New York. He is also connected with the Improved Order of Red Men and Amsterdam Lodge, No. 101, B. P. O. E. Dr. Ruman is a young man of earnest purpose, deeply interested in his work and possesses all of the qualities necessary for success in the dental profession.
