The History of the Liverpool Dental Hospital and School

The early days of professional dentistry in Liverpool is the story of dedication and benevolence - the Liverpool Dispensary for Diseases of the Teeth was founded in 1860, offering free treatment for the poor in this crowded and growing city. That facility is the ancestor of today's School of Dentistry within the University of Liverpool, which continues the tradition of excellence and innovation begun by those Victorian practitioners.

Professor Callum Youngson, Dean of the Institute of Clinical Sciences, former Head of the School of Dentistry, will give an enlightening overview of the University's important collection of historic dental artefacts and will follow the development of the School and its pioneers in the field.

An interactive, hands-on session will be included.
