View Full Version : Dental Schools Dentists 1900's

I wonder if anyone can answer this question. My grandfather Thomas B Jones was born in Glamorgan. He studied to be a dentist, and practiced in Herefordshire before he went off to the great war. I am trying to discover where he might have studied, either in Swansea, Newport, and or Herefordshire.
I have tried typing ealy dental schools, both in Wales and Herefordshire. I do not know which direction to go in. I would love to find out where he went to school if I possibly could. His father was the manager of a Tin Plate works, and they had little money.
If any one has any ideas would you please pass them on.

Hi, I'm new to B-G so I've only just spotted your message.

There was a School of Dentistry in Birmingham. One of my ancestors, who was born and lived in Caernarvonshire, was a student there in the middle of the 19th century. It's about the same distance from Glamorgan to Birmingham as it is from Caernarvonshire to Birmingham, so maybe your ancestor studied there too. I hope you find him soon.

thanks for your message. Would you happen to know the name of the dental school that you mentioned? I have not yet found any info.

Have a read of this thread (http://www.british-genealogy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31236&highlight=dentist), which refers both to the British Dental Association and the Dentists' Register.

I think it was called the Birmingham School of Dentistry but I may be wrong. There's more information on their website -
