Dental Hospital

Dental Hospital
The Dental Hospital at 2-28 Chalmers St, Surry Hills, is one of the best examples of the interwar Functionalist style in Sydney CBD with strip windows in surrounds and strong horizontal lines demonstrating key characteristics of the style.

The original Dental Hospital on this site was built in 1910. By the 1930s it could no longer meet demands.

The new Dental Hospital was designed by Stephenson, Meldrum and Turner in 1937 and was built by H. G. Whittle.
