In France, Pierre Fauchard published a book describing dental techniques and practices. Pierre Fauchard is often referred to as the Father of Modern dentistry because his publication was thought to be the first complete scientific description of dentistry.[3] Overtime trained dentists immigrated to America to practice dentistry, and by 1760, America had its own native born practicing dentists. Newspapers were used at the time to advertise and promote dental services . In America from 1768-1770 the first application of dentistry to verify forensic cases was being pioneered; this was called forensic dentistry. With the rise of dentists there was also the rise of new methods to improve the quality of dentistry. These new methods included the spinning wheel to rotate a drill and chairs made specifically for dental patients.[4]

In the 1840s the world’s first dental school and national dental organization were established. Along with the first dental school came the establishment of the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, often referred to as a DDS degree. In response to the rise in new dentists as well as dentistry techniques, the first dental practice act was established. The act was created to regulate dentistry. In the United States, the First Dental Practice Act required dentists to pass each specific states medical board exam in order to practice dentistry in that particular state. However, because the dental act was rarely enforced, some dentists did not obey the act. From 1846-1855 new dental techniques were being invented such as the use of ester anesthesia for surgery, and the cohesive gold foil method which enabled gold to be applied to a cavity. The American Dental Association was established in 1859 after a meeting with 26 dentists. Around 1867, the first university associated dental school was established, Harvard Dental School. Lucy Hobbs Taylor was the first woman to earn a dental degree. In the 1880s, tube toothpaste was created which replaced the original forms of powder or liquid toothpaste. New dental boards, such as the National Association of Dental Examiners, were created to establish standards and uniformity among dentist.[4] In 1887 the first dental laboratory was established; dental laborites are used to create dentures and crowns that are specific to each patient.[5] In 1895 the dental X-ray was discovered by a German physicist, Wilhelm Rontgen.[6]

In the 20th century new dental techniques and technology were invented such as: the porcelain crowns(1903), Novocain (a local anesthetic) 1905, precision cast fillings(1907), nylon toothbrushes(1938), water fluoridation (1945), fluoride toothpaste(1950), air driven dental tools(1957), lasers(1960), electric toothbrushes (1960), and home tooth bleaching kits(1989) were invented. Inventions such as the air driven dental tools ushered in a new high speed dentistry.[4][4][7]
