The first English Dentistry Text-book.

Previous Page Page 22 Next Page Next: Dental History: The Operator for the Teeth. Full Transcript

when I have asserted such and such things to be improvable to such a degree, it is to be understood for the most part and in general, not denying that it may happen otherwise in some particular cases: but I shall always deal candidly with everybody; never undertaking but what I can do according to agreement. And if any one will be pleased to come to my chamber, he may have my advice (concerning any thing that belongs to my profession) gratis at any time.

Advertisement to the Readers.

Although I have offered nothing in this paper, but what is according to my own experience, and the best of my knowledge: yet I will not say but that I have been deficient in may things, and have committed a great many errors in the management of my subject; but if you consider that I am the first (as far as I know) that ever wrote anything of this nature; and withal, what is to be expected from one in my circumstances: I hope you will be more ready to excuse my faults: however, if what I have done is acceptable to you, I intend in a second impression of this (indded) small treatise to correct, illustrate, and augment it, to its full proportion. In the manwhile I would advise you, to make use of what is here presented you, by your very humble servant,
Charles Allen
