The history of the Army Dental Corps is also the history of the dental profession in the country. Both were struggling for a place in the sun before the outbreak of World War II. The impetus provided by the great War from 1939 to 1945 led to remarkable strides forward in establishing Dentistry as a distinct profession.
No single comprehensive account of the history of the Army Dental Corps existed till recently. Spanning six decades this book brings out vividly the silent role and indispensability of the Army Dental Corps; that these 'back room' boys of the Dental Corps practicing an 'unglamours' profession are as necessary to the fitness of the soldiers as are the soldiers to their country.
This book fills a serious lacuna in the history of the ADC.
