Frightening photos have emerged of a dentist surgery which has been abandoned since its owner died more than 20 years ago.
Inside the abandoned property are medical supplies, patient records and decaying surgical equipment scattered around.
The dentist is believed to have died in the late 1990s after suffering personal problems with the last cigarettes he smoked and the bottle of wine he drank still on the dining table.
Located in a Belgian village, the property looks like something out of a horror film – and certainly not the sort of place you’d want to get your teeth checked.
The pictures were taken by a British explorer who visited to record the property’s eerie contents.
It is understood the dentist lost his licence in 1995 and went into depression taking his life three years later.
But the abandoned house looks like it hasn’t been touched since as least the decade before his death.
Inside the surgery is an old dentist chair complete with dental moulds, newspapers from 1980 and medical books stacked alongside patient records.
Bedrooms are filled with perfectly clean and folded bedlinen while a chandelier hangs above one bed.
The explorer said: “It’s a huge mansion behind these 15ft black metal gates and it’s very, very sinister looking.
“The dentist lived there with his wife and kids and he was a regular dentist and GP and he had it all in his house.
“He got into financial trouble and his wife left him. I was told he also lost his medical licence but did not tell his patients.
“The neighbours said he used to do appointments for a third of the price of anyone else but was using 20-year-old equipment and that’s why people complained.”
Although the bedrooms look presentable, it’s the dentist’s room which is the eeriest thing in the East Flanders mansion.
The explorer continued: “There were drills and pain relief, with an alternative to chloroform. The basement was absolutely full of medical books.
“And there was a lot of beautiful stuff left. No one wants to buy it because of its history and the villagers want it demolished.
“It’s an amazing place though because there was no damp and very little decay. In many places walls have started to crumble and this just wasn’t like that.”
