The New Zealand Dental Services
Wellington Dental Section
This part of the organisation is only mentioned because it was responsible for the dental treatment of Navy, Army and Air Force personnel at headquarters in Wellington. Although living in Wellington with its civilian dental facilities, these men and women were as much a responsibility of the NZDC as the troops in camp or in the field. The section was no different from any other dental section and was situated in a glassed-in annex of Government Buildings, familiarly known as ‘The Tomato House’. It was under the direct control, indeed almost under the actual view, of the DDS himself.
