Dentist Thomas Bramwell Welch (1825-1903) of Vineland, New Jersey, created an unfermented grape sugar in 1869 that he called “Dr. Welch’s Unfermented Wine.” In 1869, William F. Semple (1834-1922), a dentist in Ohio was the first inventor to patent chewing gum. Semple hoped that people would be able to clean their teeth with it. Dentist William James Morrison (1860-1926) of Nashville, Tennessee, invented the cotton candy machine, called the Fairy Floss Machine, in the nineteenth century. The machine that he designed still works today just as it did then.
