"In the early days of medicine, surgery and medicine were two distinctly different professions," says Burton Edelstein, a professor of dental medicine and health policy at Columbia University and founder of the Children's Dental Health Project. "This is before anaesthesia, so surgery was rough. It was not regarded as sophisticated."
For years, Edelstein says, dental students had trouble gaining admission to medical schools, so the first college specifically for dentistry was founded-in Maryland, no less-in 1840.
This minimization of dentistry persisted when Congress was crafting the public health insurance programs in the 1960s. During the original 1965 formulation of Medicaid, the dental market wasn't very robust and policymakers didn't value it as highly as other forms of medical care, Edelstein says.
