Dentist's Day 2017 - Smile More!

Greet dentists worldwide and honor their important role in keeping people healthy and smiling today, the 6th of March, 2017.

Dentistry is one of the oldest medical professions. Oral hygiene has always been one of the main troublesome issues for people and a topic that interested many prominent physicians of the past. The first known doctor who studied and practiced dentistry, Hesy Ra, worked in Egypt in 2600BC.

Before dentistry formed as a separated branch of medicine, barbers used to combine dentist's duties as well. As a rule, they were checking the overall teeth condition and extracting bad teeth. If we are talking about the modern dentistry, that has developed during the late 17th century, the absence of anesthesia and precise, efficient equipment made people scared of the dentists by causing much pain during the dentist's session.

Nowadays, dentists are an essential part of professional medical and health system. In addition to solve people's tooth problems, qualified dentists also make surgeries to correct misaligned teeth and various problems affecting the jaw and the oral cavity. As dentist surgeons, orthodontists are treating the abnormalities of jaws and crooked teeth, so called malocclusions.
