Dentistry

Dentistry is the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease and disfigurement in the mouth and oral area. You do look after people's teeth, but much more besides.

Serious dentistry requires numerous performers on stage at once. The dentist themselves, but also a number or other professionals: dental assistants, nurses, hygienists, technicians and therapists.
