All this mention of St. Paul might get you thinking of ancient times when Saint Paul was spreading Jesus’ message long, long ago. Historically, did you ever think about dentistry way back when? For centuries, people thought a worm traveled through a person’s mouth and was the cause of dental pain– crazy but true. It wasn’t until the 1700s that people gave up that notion.

In 1840, the first college to train dentists opened in Baltimore, MD, and toothpaste came to the masses in the 1870s thanks to Colgate. Toothbrushes became commonplace in the 1880s. It’s amazing to think that at one time kids and adults didn’t have toothpaste and toothbrushes. We take them for granted, don’t we?

The art and science of dentistry has come along way in recent times.
