Paul Revere: Patriot, Dentist

Dental Implants in Chicago

Many people know of Paul Revere for his participation in the Boston Tea Party and his creation of a lantern-lighting system which he used to alert the Minutemen of a British invasion in his famous midnight ride on April 18, 1775. What you may not know is that he was a dentist as well.

Paul Revere’s primary vocation was as a silversmith, but he supplemented his income by providing dentistry services as well. During Paul Revere’s time, dentures were handmade and constructed of a variety of materials, including silver. As a silver craftsman, it’s not too surprising that he expanded his services to include denture manufacturing. According to advertisements that he placed in a Boston newspaper, Paul Revere provided dental cleanings as well.
