Dentists in World War One

The Glimpses of BDA Past page is focusing on events at the beginning of the war surrounding military recruits. Thousands were rejected from military service because of the state of their teeth.

Throughout this memorial period @BDALibrary will be tweeting every Sunday using #WW1Dentists to highlight the role of dentists during World War One both on the home front and in the armed forces, as dentists and as ordinary servicemen.

Please join in with your own stories using the hashtag at any time.
