What: Dentsply’s offices in the Susquehanna Commerce Center in York
By: Dianne Bowders of York Township
Something unusual: Dianne writes: “Dentsply began in New York City in 1899 as ’20th Century Teeth.’ George Whitely, a ceramist, was innovative when he embedded platinum split-ring anchors into ceramic teeth for better holding power in the base, greatly reducing breakage. The company has since expanded to serve world-wide “prosthetic, preventative and restorative” dental needs.” Here’s a cool look at the “House that Dentsply Built,” the Box Hill Mansion in Spring Garden Township.

    My grandmother, Sara Zinn Adams, worked as a “fore-lady” at the Dental Supply Company during the Depression and through the 1950′s. She supervised the women who pinned the teeth into the gum frames. She once brought home a tiny set of false teeth “for babies who are born without teeth.” They were miniscule . . . and absolutely perfect!
