The History of Modern Dentistry


Research & Narration by William H. McHorris Slides & Illustrations by James E. Metz

This DVD is a thorough and fascinating history of the development of modern dentistry from the mid 1800’s to the present. It covers all of the specialty areas, dental materials and chemistry, and includes many stories about the wonderful leaders of our profession who contributed so much to our progress. The emphasis is on the members of the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry and their contributions, but includes many others from around the world. To appreciate just how easy we have it today, one needs to understand where we, as a profession, came from, and the effort and innovation required by our predecessors to arrive at today’s technology and techniques.
