While most books on dentistry describe the clinical and medical procedures involved, this book expands the field to examine the role of dentistry and teeth in everything from biology to biography. This book offers facts and figures regarding famous historical figures, such as John Hunter, Dr Crippen, Doc Holliday, and Paul Revere, exploring how their connections to dentistry shaped them, as well as the story of the two young dentists who discovered the principles of general anaesthesia. Other chapters focus on the amazing ranges of teeth in animals, from the teeth in piranhas to the tusks and ivory of elephants and narwhals, looking at their biological and cultural significance. The importance of teeth in understanding the evolution of humans and in revolutionizing the study of archaeology is also evaluated. This book is appropriate for dentists, medical and dentistry students, and non-specialists to introduce the myriad interesting aspects relating to teeth. Please note that print volumes do not include full colour.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It is extremely well written, managing quite effortlessly to maintain a degree of simplicity for the layman but also providing enough information to engage the individual with some knowledge of dental anatomy and development. This is the type of book that you can open at almost any page and immediately become completely engaged in what you start reading." --European Journal of Orthodontics "While most books on dentistry describe the clinical and medical procedures involved, this book expands the field to examine the role of dentistry and teeth in everything from biology to biography."--King's College Newsletter, June 2013 "This excellent book will appeal to dentists and non-dentists alike. It will provide dental historians with many ideas for research."--Dental History Magazine "From start to finish, it really is hard to put down... The book takes the reader through a whole host of interesting dentally relevant areas and is not rivaled in any other text out there."--British Dental Journal, April 27, 2013
