On August 1,1835, the following notice appeared in "The Cleveland Herald";

" Doctors Ware and Bradley have formed a connection in the practice of Operative
Dental Surgery, Diseases of the Eye and Ear and Practice of Medicine."

The population of Cleveland in 1835 was 5080. At this time there were probably
not more than 500 dentists in America. Dr Ware advertised in the "Whig" on
November 4,1835;

" Just received 500 of Dr.Ambler's D.C. Ambler, New York, (1828) premium
incorruptible Teeth, suitable for inserting on pivot or gold mountings. Also a
large assortment of Tooth Brushes together with a good article of Tooth Powder,
prepared by the subscriber J.S. Ware, Surgeon Dentist, office Superior Street."

This same advertisement appeared on April 13, 1836, and also in the "Daily
Gazette", May 25,1836. Dr. Ware's 
practice in Cleveland was comparitively short for he left Cleveland for Detroit,
Michigan, in 1836, where he practiced until 1845. The following is a notice
declaring Dr.Wade's termination of practice in Cleveland and announcing Dr.

Feb 7, 1836 

" Dr. Ware having removed from Cleveland, the practice of Dental Surgery will be
continued by Dr. J.H. Farnsworth who respectively tenders his services to the
citizens of Cleveland and its vicinity. Having fitted a room in the Franklin
Buildings, No.6, and provided a large supply of Incorruptible Teeth, customers
can be supplied from one to an entire set, exactly to correspond with the living
teeth, set after the latest and most modern principles of Dental Mechanism, Dr.
Farnsworth will make Cleveland his permanent residence, therefore, is prepared
to warrant his operations, and in doing so, offers the public an opportunity to
avoid imposition, and the injurious results which so frequently attend and
follow the practice of itinerant dentists. All operations on the teeth, gums,
and mouth will be performed with the least possible pain, and correct
professional skill. The only reference which Dr. Farnsworth deems necessary is
his own work. Irregularities of the teeth in children prevented and remedied in
adults. Chlorine Wash, Tooth Powders and Brushes a superior article for sale.
Country dentists supplied with incorruptible silicious Teeth by the hundred."

                                        J.H. Farnsworth, Dentist.
