Dental may refer to:
Dental surgery is any of a number of medical procedures that involve artificially modifying dentition; in other words, surgery of the teeth and jaw bones.
Surgery (from the Greek: χειρουργική cheirourgikē (composed of χείρ, "hand", and ἔργον, "work"), via Latin: chirurgiae, meaning "hand work") is a medical specialty that uses operative manual and instrumental techniques on a patient to investigate or treat a pathological condition such as a disease or injury, to help improve bodily function or appearance or to repair unwanted ruptured areas.
Surgery is the red flower that blooms among the leaves and thorns that are the rest of medicine.
Richard Seltzer, American physician, Letters to a Young Doctor (1982)
Vulnera, quae melius non tetigisse fuit.
Some wounds grow worse beneath the surgeon's hand;'Twere better that they were not touched at all.
I would like to see the day when somebody would be appointed surgeon somewhere who had no hands, for the operative part is the least part of the work.
Harvey Cushing, American surgeon, Letter to Henry Christian (November 20, 1911)
