Research Facts
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.
This adaptor for a baby's bottle was invented by an American dentist from Texas who spoke in Montreal around 1938; he was concerned about the bottles of the time, which were just long tubes through which the baby sucked; he believed they were causing infants to have dental problems later in life; he designed this adaptor to recreate more closely a baby naturally breastfeeding, where the baby uses more jaw motions to drink milk; unfortunately his product did not take off as bottle companies began to change their design almost immediately afterward.
