The diversity of dentistry



The diversity of dentistry



Journal of the American Dental Association 131(1): 83-85



In a relatively brief time, the dental profession has evolved into one of the most recognized and respected professions. There still is, however, a lack of public knowledge about dentistry and the procedures dentists can accomplish in addition to restoring teeth. Life-enhancing, dramatically significant oral procedures now are available to the public. The diverse nature of the professional activities in which dentists may involve themselves needs to be made public knowledge. This education of the public should come from the individual members of the profession and from organized dental groups.
