Foreword: Collected Papers Relative to Dental Health
by Charles C. Bass, M.D. New Orleans, La.
“After retirement in 1940, from my position as Dean and Professor of Experimental Medicine at Tulane University School of Medicine, and after a year or two required to dispose of my pecan farm in Mississippi and to wind up all other outside interests, I took up intensive study and research relating to the cause and prevention of the loss of teeth.”
“I had had long experience in teaching clinical laboratory diagnosis and in research on such diseases as hookworm, other parasites, malaria, typhoid, diphtheria, amebiasis, bubonic plague, etc., involving much work with microscopic pathological conditions.”
“Next, I carried out extensive investigation and experimentation to ascertain the most appropriate specifications for the necessary toothbrush and dental floss to do the job and the most effective method of using them for this purpose. Practically one hundred per cent of prevention and control can be secured by following this exact method, but not without it.”
