It is all about teeth

On the national exhibition Phila-France in Mâcon there was an interesting exhibit with “all about teeth”: Les dents dans leur environnement of Henri Aronis. He started exhibiting in the thematic philately class. And after a sideway in the open class last year on Philapoitiers he is now back, better than ever, in the thematic philately class again, with a large vermeil medal.

He knows “all about teeth”, after working as a dentist for 40 years in Brussels (Belgium). He is born in Brussels and did his studies at the ULB, but is now living (and exhibiting) in France. He already started being interested in stamps in the eighties, but it is only after his retirement in 2000 that he spends more time in his hobby.

He accumulated a lot of material so it seemed inevitable to start exhibiting and also spreading the information through his website. October 2014 he published a book (in French) about “all about teeth”: Histoire de la Médecine Bucco-Dentaire au travers de la Philatélie (362 pages, nicely illustrated in full color with 2000 images of which 700 stamps and 500 philatelic documents).

The book is available from the author – more info on his website.
