Clearwater Dentist Visits the National Air and Space Museum: Brushes up on Space and Sees Astronaut Toothbrush

Dr. Jergins loves space. Not necessarily the space between teeth, but outer space. That’s why he was thrilled to visit the Smithsonian Museum National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. And among all of the relics and mementos of Apollo 13, John Glenn’s space capsule, and The Flyer, he came upon the teeth cleaning tools used by astronauts in outer space, while on their space missions.
