Did you know that Dr P. R. Begg is Australia’s most celebrated dentist? He is listed among the 200 most influential Australians for the bi-centennial celebrations of 1988.
He was Adelaide’s first orthodontist and earned world-wide fame for developing a game-changing philosophy and radically new technique for straightening the teeth of children and adults.
The Begg museum displays items from his practice and conjures memories of his amazing career.
Guides will be present to fully explain how Dr Begg made Adelaide the focus of world orthodontics in the mid-20th century.
Presented by The Australasian Begg Society of Orthodontists
