Coffee With Jeff #41: The Life and Death of Horace Wells

28 mins - Published Sat, Jun 13, 2015 by Jeff Kelley

This week, I tell the story a dentist in the 1800s. He looked for a way to stop the pain that he thought was unnecessary during major procedures. His name was Horace Wells and he thought laughing gas was the answer. Sit back, grab a cup of coffee and get ready to hear his amazing and sad story.
