Research Facts
Denture was hand made by Francis Wharton from the teeth from a deer he hunted in the Fall of 1967; he ground the teeth down until they were the right size and shape;.he then used plastic wood to create the plate by molding it around the roof of his mouth; the teeth are held into place with household cement; the teeth worked well and he ate the venison with the deer's own teeth.
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008.
