Dental History
- The development of oral healthcare has been greatly facilitated by the establishment of professional organisations, the largest being the Malaysian Dental Association (MDA). The MDA evolved from its precursor, the Malayan Dental Association that was officially inaugurated in 1938. Professor Edgar K. Tratman was its first President. The name change came in 1963 with the official formation of Malaysia.

Health Ministers of Malaysia / Menteri Kesihatan MalaysiaMenteri Kesihatan Malaysia ke empat ialah Y.B. En Abdul Rahman Talib (1962 - 1964).

Photo gallery
Dental photos supplied by the family of Dr Mohamed bin Taib are shown below. The problem is the photos were supplied without captions and I am lost to who are in the photos, what occasion and venue. I've tried contacting a senior family member but I think numerous spams got in the way and I had to block spams. I have tried to reconnect via Facebook but we don't get to access Facebook during office hours and I have to wait till I go home. But when I reached home I forgot to follow up in Facebook and that has gone for many years! I need assistance with the identification of people in the following photos. The photos were probably between 1962 and 1964, judging from the attires and dental equipment, and when YB En Abdul Rahman bin Talib was Health Minister. I have also written to the Nursing Association which also doubles as the nursing alumni but have not got much luck with these photos. Please help if you can.
