The dentist can be seen at the right of the image is a suit and a white lab coat. The patient is sitting in a chair, and the dentist is putting an instrument into his mouth. To the left of the dentist can be seen a variety of dental equipment, such as an overhead light, a tray with medical equipment, and a rinse and wash sink. Mary McLeod Bethune was the Director of Negro Affairs for the NYA, and most likely came into possession of this photograph during her time as an NYA agent.
