THE DENTIST’S CLINIC

gfx This clinic has belonged to Kristian Midbøe. He started his practice as a dentist in Skudeneshavn in 1928, And most of the inventory here date from the same time. Making false teeth was Mr.Midbøes speciality, And some of his equipment for that purpose is also exhibited.

The drill Midbøe used was an electric one. In earlier times dentists` drills were operated via a foot-pedal. One of those old drills ( from ca. 1900 ) can be seen here, reminding us That going to the dentist’s once could be a very painful experience.
