In this post from Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville NC, we take a fond look at the history of our profession, and where it may be headed in the future.
It has now been over 150 years since the first dental license was issued to Sir John Tomes. We can all be grateful for the advances made in dentistry during the past century and a half.
In thatl bygone era, anyone could say they were a dentist. Forget training, and the bother of hanging out a shingle. Even blacksmiths and wig makers could extract teeth to make a little extra money. Often these untrained people broke the jaws of the person they were trying to help. Ouch!
At Freedom Village Dental, we celebrate with the dental community and marvel at the many advances made in the history of dentistry, particularly cosmetic dentistry.
One of the modern treatments that has helped countless Jacksonville patients is invisible braces. This nearly-invisible orthodontic therapy is custom made for each patient. They are transparent and removable and will help you achieve your desired smile, usually in 3 to 18 months.
If you are one of the many people who has dreamed of an aesthetic improvement to your smile, we invite you to make an appointment with us to discuss a smile makeover. Complete smile transformations are performed quickly and professionally – sometimes in just one visit!
