Title

Dental Forceps

Description

Dental forceps used for the removal of molars.

This pair of forceps has an inscription on the inside of the handle reading 'J.G.H.' It is likely that these forceps belonged to John Gray Houston. Houston became a Licentiate in Dental Surgery in 1945 and gained the Higher Dental Diploma and the Diploma in Dental Orthopaedics from the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in 1956.

He became a Fellow in Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in 1967.
