The New Zealand Dental Services

War Diary, 6 March 1940:

Discussed the artificial denture problem with the A.D.M.S., in particular the steps that might be taken to reduce the number of broken dentures presenting daily. It is felt that many of these are being wilfully broken and that steps should be taken to make it clear to soldiers that in cases of this nature repairs and renewals will not be undertaken at the public expense. Also discussed the position regarding oral hygiene and the uncared-for condition of the mouths of the majority of soldiers presenting for treatment.

As a result orders were promulgated by the GOC on both subjects similar to those existing in New Zealand. (See Chapter 11.)
