Did you know...
... that today is Surgical Anesthesia Day? William Morton, a dentist from Charleston, Massachusetts, was the first person to use ether to extract a tooth. In his Boston dental office
at 9 in the evening, Sept. 30, 1846, Morton used ether to
painlessly extract a tooth from Eben Frost, a local merchant.
Our teeth thank you, William! ;-)
