Happy Birthday, George!


George Washington, didn’t have cancer—or wooden teeth. But he did have toothaches, and by age 58, he’d lost all his teeth. I found an interesting website that shares aspects of George Washington’s life, including his dental history. Each section has a short quiz at the end.

Entering his second term as President, George Washington delivered a short two paragraph inaugural address. (presumably because of mouth discomfort.)
