The Dentist is a medical health professional authorized to practice odontology. Holder of a state diploma in dental surgery or dental medicine in most countries, he ensures the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of congenital or acquired anomalies and diseases, real or suspected, of the mouth, teeth, jawbones and adjoining tissues. He is often referred to as a “dentist” for convenience.
