Read a review of this book that appeared in the BDJ
Bringing together resources and information about dental practice in France, the British Isles, the Netherlands, Hungary and Germany, this book provides important insights into the role of European dentistry in the latter part of the 1700s. This is a period when dentistry as a specialty began to emerge and for the first time the research focuses on sources such as newspaper advertisements and commercial directories to place the role of the dental practitioner within a wider social and political context during of an era of great change.
