New art exhibition explores strange history of dentistry and its links to Birmingham Jewellery Quarter

Artist Anna Dumitriu has created the new exhibition to explore the cultural and psychological impact of dentistry inspired by Birmingham Dental Hospital’s existing collection of historic artefacts.

Anna said: “When I first began this project I had no idea just how truly fascinating and, at times, downright bizarre the history of dentistry was, let alone its central importance to the development of medical science and surgery or how closely linked the whole field is to jewellery-making.
