Dentistry is 14,000 Years Old

In a July 2015 article in Scientific Reports, researchers have found evidence of Dentistry in a molar tooth. The cavity  was prepared with stone tools in an attempt to remove infected material.

This is the oldest example of dentistry to date. We are still removing cavities from teeth and placing artificial fillings in the holes, but we have come a long way to make the patient comfortable.
