Brushing Up on History: Dentistry Through the Ages

Thursday, December 13, 2012 @ 7:00 PM-8:30 PM

Perspectives on Science & History Series

Featured Speaker: Kurt H. Studt, DDS, MS, FAGD, Clinical Professor of Applied Dental Medicine, Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville; Adjunct Faculty, St. Louis Community College, Department of Dental Hygiene, Forest Park; part-time private practice

George Washington was perhaps the most famous wearer of dentures in American history. Want the tooth, the whole tooth and nothing but the tooth on the dental health and infamous “wooden” teeth of our Country’s quintessential Founding Father? Then don’t miss this fascinating talk on Dentistry through the Ages with Dr. Kurt Studt. It’s a cringe-worthy look back at the history of dentistry with a peek at today’s kinder, gentler dental technology.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Discover the Real George Washington: New Views from Mount Vernon on display at the Missouri History Museum through January 21, 2013.

Exhibition visitors can see the only surviving complete set of George Washington’s dentures, ca. 1790-1799. Courtesy of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association.
