(Luftwaffe Dental Clinic (motorized))
by Henry L. deZeng IV

Each of these had a total of 1 dental officer and an unknown number of other personnel (dental assistants, dental hygienists, clerks, etc.). The total number of Luftwaffe motorized dental clinics appears to have ranged from 4 to 12 during the war. None of them is known to have received its own Feldpost number so they were probably attached to Luftwaffe hospital or similar facility. Those identified are Zahnstation (mot) d.Lw. 1 through Zahnstation (mot) d.Lw. 12. Locations were found for only three of them:  4 was in Padova/Italy in 1945, 8 was in Borispol/C Ukraine in early 1942, and 12 was in Rome/Italy in February 1943.

KStN: 5412 (L).
