Source Lists


LHSA holds many records relating to dentistry.  Most importantly, we have the records of the Edinburgh Dental Hospital and School itself (LHB25), but also, dental services were frequently discussed by other boards and committees.  We have staff records, technical reports and even lists of dental equipment.


We also have a good collection of photographs relating to dentistry. Please contact us if you'd like to know more about our photographic collection, or make an initial search via SCRAN:



Each of the links in the blue box to the right will provide you with a list of relevant LHSA collections.  From that list you can follow the links to the individual catalogues to find out more about the records themselves.
