The New Zealand Dental Services

The Maxillo-Facial Injuries Section

The Maxillo-Facial Injuries Section

This was at Burwood, near Christchurch, where the Army built accommodation in conjunction with a branch of the Christ-church Public Hospital. The hospital itself was a civilian organisation but the army part was in charge of a New Zealand Medical Corps plastic surgeon, who had with him a dental officer and mechanic who had received specialist training in maxillo-facial work in England. The section consisted of the officer and mechanic mentioned and an orderly, either NZDC or WAAC. A more detailed description of this specialist section is given in the chapter devoted to maxillo-facial work.
