Molenaer, The Dentist,

“The Dentist” by Dutch Golden Age painter Jan Miense Molenaer 1629. Like many paintings of dentists from this era there is someone watching the extraction. However in this case it is just one young woman not a crowd as is often depicted. The woman has what might be a smile on her face. I wonder if she is with the patient or if she is a dental assistant. This painting is on display at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.

Dental art is anything that depicts teeth or dentistry in an interesting or artistic way. If you have any suggestions for future Dental Art pieces please send them to me or give me a link. Thanks.
