Creepy photographs have emerged of a dentist’s surgery which has been untouched since its owner died more than 20 years ago.
Time has stood still for the once bustling surgery with images showing the abandoned mansion littered with medical supplies, patient records and decaying surgical equipment.
The dentist is understood to have died in the late 1990s after suffering personal problems and the last cigarettes he smoked and the bottle of wine he drank are still laid out on the dining room table.
The house, in a Belgian village, is like walking into a horror film – and not the sort of place you’d want to get your teeth checked.
The images are a spine-tingling reminder that the house was once a home and has now become popular with urban explorers.

At Dr. Todd Bertman’s office, the receptionist wears a plastic face shield. So do the hygienist and the nine doctors in the practice in Manhattan’s East Village.
Dr. Bertman reopened the office two weeks ago after closing it in March in response to the coronavirus pandemic. In another change from the past, he has switched from ultrasonic cleaners that spray water and saliva into the air to laser instruments.
The dentists and hygienists wear head-to-toe personal protective equipment that they change between appointments, a time-consuming, awkward ritual that requires them to take off booties, gowns, goggles, masks, gloves and the shields and replace them with clean ones.
“It’s like changing out of a spacesuit,” Dr. Bertman said. “It’s annoying as hell but this is what it kind of comes down to until we find a vaccine.”
As of June 19, every state had allowed dentists’ offices to reopen for all
