Treadle, Treadle, Just Don't Stop!

November 15, 2017

 

This treadle dental drill was still in use on Matakana Island right up until the 1980's! No wonder some people hate going to the dentist. 

 

The story goes that if the dental nurse didn't like you she just might stall it out!  Is your jaw clenched? Mine is!  Want to share a story? Get in touch.
