We’ll bet the early history of dental care and dentists in the United States is far more interesting that you would have guessed, filled with famous names and genius innovations
Many primary & secondary schools across the United States (& in some other countries) require students to have a dental exam
from a pediatric dentist or family dentist before they finish certain grade levels.
Most patients, especially those in suburban areas near cities, have two choices for the types of dental practices they can go to. There are classic privately-owned practices, which are small businesses where the supervising dentist is also the owner.
