Abstract

The legacy of Dentistry and Medicine can be traced to ancient literature like ‘the Vedas’. Many drugs, predominantly of plant origin, prevention of diseases and maintenance of health can be found in the Vedas and masterly text books of Ayurveda. This article is an attempt to trace the origins of dental science in our ancient context. Master teachers of Ayurveda will find elaborate description in subsequent articles.
