FLASHBACK: Dental Clinic For Youngsters Busy Place

A regular feature looking back at what was being printed more than 100 years ago in the Bristol Daily Courier. This week’s entry comes from the May 20, 1921 edition of the newspaper.

At School a with a grin on their faces and the determination to brush their teeth! What peace and quiet reigns over the dental clinic at the Bristol community house. The stillness is broken only by the voices of the ladies in attendance calling some new patient to the dentist’s chair. How much more dignified these little men and women seem than their parents and their older brothers and sister. Unlike the older folks, they do not admonish the dentist to “please be very careful and please don’t hurt me.”
