Dentistry is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity, commonly in the dentition but also the oral mucosa, and of adjacent and related structures and tissues, particularly in the maxillofacial (jaw and facial) area. Although primarily associated with teeth among the general public, the field of dentistry or dental medicine is not limited to teeth but includes other aspects of the craniofacial complex including the temporomandibular and other supporting structures.

Giving the gift of a smile

Giving a person the gift of a smile can mean the world to them. Many people can't afford the cost of dental work. Mainly because dentistry is extremely expensive. So when there are free dental clinic, you don't really know how many people you change, until you've been there. People come in with aches and pains and leave with a smile on their face. Dental work isn't the only thing that can provide a smile to somebody's face. Just one act of kindness. Taking some free time out of a day to make a difference is somebody's life can really impact their lives.
