He is best known for his work on fluorides and their use in municipal water supplies as well as in tooth pastes and mouth washes. He was the ﬁrst to apply a fluoride compound directly to the teeth, a procedure now well established in paediatric dentistry. Even while holding teaching and administrative posts, his own researches continued and most important, he inspired many, many others to enter the field. Research subjects covered a wide range, the biology of the teeth, their surrounding tissues, the saliva, oral micro-organisms, and the cariogenicity of food and drink while they are in the mouth.
