La dentisterie, de l’antiquité au 19e siècle

Abstract : This work deals with the evolution of dental surgery from Antiquity to the 19th century while highlighting the status of the dental surgeon in each era. Indeed, nothing was taken for granted for our profession, many personalities, including great dental surgeons, had to fight to bring our art out of empiricism. Starting with dentistry’s beginning with the famous Greco-Roman philosophical authors, this study will explain the quarrel between doctors and surgeons, the rise of dentistry in the 18th century, the fall of the profession after the French Revolution and finally the creation of the first dental schools in the 19th century. Dentistry will sometimes be practiced by doctors, sometimes by surgeons, barbers, charlatans and will not be exclusive to dental surgeons until the 20th century.
