Dentistry is the branch of medicine concerned with the health of the mouth. Dentists work hard to prevent, diagnose, and treat conditions of the teeth and gums.

Dentistry has been practiced in various forms for centuries. Did you know? The first dentists were barbers - professionals who cut hair.

In the Middle Ages, it just made sense that the guy who trimmed your beard also took care of extracting your aching tooth while he was at it.
