Editorial:  The legacy that Declan Anderson left for toothwear patients

Feedback:  0 comments, 0 ratings

Abstract: It was with sadness that I read the obituary for Declan John Anderson, who passed away, aged 95, on Easter Day 2016.1 He was, according to his Obituary, best known for his work on the sensory mechanisms relating to pain from human dentine, with this work advising us that the sensitivity was due to displacement of the contents of the dentinal tubules. Having graduated at Guy’s in 1942, he gained a Chair at Bristol and formed a very successful group there.
