Is dentistry a science or art?

Dentistry is more of an art than a science, more subjective than objective, resulting in wide variations in clinical judgments and interventions among dentists. Dentures are a good example of how science and art work together. Through diligent research, dental professionals have developed ways to obtain perfect impressions to capture the most detailed shot of a person's smile. Choosing the right material to replicate your patients' teeth while providing the right function is also important and requires a combination of aesthetic knowledge and scientific skills.

While appearance is a crucial factor, the benchmark for success is measured by the balance achieved between comfort, beauty and function. Welcome to Art %26 Science Dentistry. The longer I practice dentistry, the more I realize that dentistry is both an art and a science. While science clearly contributes to advances in dentistry, it is often the dentist's keen eye for detail that determines the quality of the final result.
