Dentistry has certainly come a long way. Historians aren’t quite sure when and where people started caring about their teeth, but the history of dentistry can be recorded as early as 5,000 BC. There are some really old dentistry techniques that are, in some form or another, still around. But the changes in dentistry are truly interesting. France and China helped pave the way towards modern dentistry, but as you can see, the history of dentistry as we know it is rather new. This timeline demonstrates just how surprisingly new (or surprisingly old) dentistry is.
