BDA Dental Museum

What is the BDA Dental Museum?

The museum is based in the British Dental Association headquarters in central London and is open to everyone. From 19th century dental floss to toothache cures, clockwork drills to toothpaste adverts, there is more to discover than you might imagine.’ – BDA

This museum opened in 1919 after Lilian Lindsay became the first qualified female dentist in the UK, she had donated her old dental equipment to the BDA starting the museum.

The museum was opened to the public in 1967 when the BDA moved premises. The entire collection itself is 30.000 strong and is now partly on show, the artefacts on display include a collection of tooth brushes, an exquisite dental chair dating for the early 20th century, a dentists tool box, and anatomical models used for teaching.

Thoughts…

This museum would be perfect for a nice lunch break visit, the staff were very helpful and knowledgable and museum is generally quite self-explanatory. The large print information clearly on display, however the labeling for the individual items was not as clear.

The exhibition space is  small but nice,with a cabinet outside dedicated to Lilian Lindsay. The space was not over crowded and was neatly organised showing a good range of artefacts.

Admission free. Open Tuesdays and Thursdays 1pm–4pm

♡ Sailor Moon iPhone Cases ♡

With the recent re-release of Sailor Moon expected at the end of this year there is so much merchandise around, other than the  official Sailor Moon cosmetics a series of jewelry and other apparel has been released for pre-order. My favourite and most useful type of merchandise is the humble phone case, as it can turn your boring old iPhone into something more reflective of you. Here are my five favourite cases. Please visit Moon Kitty where the rest of the phone cases and other merchandise is listed.

My personal favourite is the first one as I like the visual arrangement of the henshin items, the pop art style makes the case super cute and contemporary.
