Historic Hood River
I believe this image from the E.O. Blanchar family folder shows a demonstration of a dentist’s drill from the museum collection. The photo is from 1958. Our museum database shows a “foot pedal drill used by Dr. Pineo in 1900.” You can see Dr. Pineo in his office in this great image.
Oh Yuk! Not a pleasant photo.
Dr. Carey h. Jenkins used one like that on me when I was in junior high. He also used a hammer and chisel to break my impacted wisdom teeth out of my jaw my mother not to whimper orgroanbecause that might hurt dr. Jenkins's feelings.
