George Washington's Smile-A Leader's Struggle

We visited the new education center at Mount Vernon last week near Arlington, VA. Though it is widely known that our great leader had very awkward dentures and was extremely self-conscious about his smile as a result, I was surprised to see a rather large exhibit in the museum dedicated to "A Leader's Smile."
It chronicles his dental history from the loss of his first 2 teeth during the French and Indian War, his struggles to try to save his teeth and the pain he must have had to endure during every phase of his military career and public life.
How fortunate we are to live in a time when so much technology enhances the quality of our lives by making it so easy to avoid the difficulties George Washington had to endure with his smile.
