Dentist solide.
The firm dentist.
Visitors of this site that have a fear of the dentist are advised to omit this French series of six magic lantern slides.
Unfortunately the first slide is missing. It probably shows the arriving of the patient at the dentist's.

Slides have the American format of c. 8 x 10 cm. They are labelled with the name of the publisher: Maison de la Bonne Press, and a hand-written title of the series: Dentiste Solide.

Also from the dentist on the next magic lantern slides one could wonder if he really deserves the diploma on the wall.
Dentist - Something has got to come. Dentist - Something did come.
