Dentistry was the study and personal care of a person's teeth. A dentist was a person who practiced dentistry. Dentistry was known to be painful to a handful of species.

As with medicine, Klingons considered dentistry as a shameful profession. (RIS Bouteina: "Relief and Refuge")


Federation and Lyran dentists earned doctorates of dental medicine in order to practice, abbreviated DMD, and thus were called doctors like physicians and, in the Lyran case, pharmacists. The races that allowed for undergraduate medical school entry generally allowed for undergraduate dental school entry. As with the Doctor of Medicine for physicians, Lyrans considered the DMD as the license to practice dental medicine. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Educational Armageddon")
