If you went to elementary school in the United States, chances are you may have heard the funny stories about George Washington and his teeth. Stories about our first President’s teeth expound wild possibilities, ranging from claims that they were made of wood or even hippopotamus bone to myths that they were actually spring-powered!
So what were George’s teeth really like? And for that matter, what about the teeth of all the other presidents? You never hear about them, but a lot of those guys had some odd dental situations. This President’s Day, join Penn Dental Medicine in celebrating the history of presidential smiles!
You might not have Presidential teeth (and maybe that’s a good thing!), but you can have a presidential smile at Penn Dental Medicine. Celebrate President’s Day with us by making an appointment to transform your smile!
