            I've just been asked by a colleague from the Dental School if I
can mount some ground sections of teeth he's discovered at the back of a
cupboard. Being a simple physiologist I've never dealt with this type of
material so any hints and tips as to the technique I should use would be
welcome? I'm scouring the books, but why re-invent the wheel.

            Should I wash the sections to remove years of accumulated dust
and in what, then air dry or dehydrate?

            Mounting media, anything that's really recommended? I had
thought of Entallin but I'm open to other suggestions.
