18th Century Dentistry

Posted on: |

Recently, the blog All Things Georgian wrote an entry about what dentistry looked like in the 18th century. The authors featured some great historical illustrations as well as photos of historical instruments; you can read the entire blog post here.

Don’t forget, we have an awesome History of Medicine Collection in the lower level of the health sciences library which is home to a variety of historical dental instruments like the thumb operated dental drill. There are also plenty of historical dental texts available within the collection as well. Stop in and see the collection Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm. You can also contact Linda Lohr or Keith Mages to make an appointment. Stop in and see what 18th century dentistry looked like first hand!
