About the event

Join Rachel Bairtso and Fiona Gray of the British Dental Association Museum as they discuss how the army looked after its soldiers’ teeth during the First World War.

At the outbreak of the First World War there was insufficient dental provision for serving military personnel. However, the pain of toothache and the inability to chew food was debilitating and demoralising for the British soldier.

This talk will explore the state of the nation’s teeth and the treatments available at the time.
