Evolution of Dental Services – A History of Dentistry

The profession of Dentistry and Dental Care has a long history. Researchers have traced Dentistry back to ancient Egypt back at 7500 B.C. The ancient Egyptians were the first to have replacement teeth, which are the forerunners of modern dentures and crowns.

Over the course of time, Dentistry and Dental Care has evolved from a primitive form of medicine to modern day use of preventative dental care, state of the art diagnostics and modern age treatment. During the past several centuries, Dentistry has seen many improvements and changes. To learn more about these changes, we have assembled a number of resources for your information:
