The History of Dental Medicine in Morocco in the 20th Century

L. Elfiguigui | A. Elyamani

Abstract: One of the most worrying subjects in Morocco has always been its history, in various forms, political, economic, cultural, and scientific, of which the history of medicine was an integral part. According to historical sources, before the protectorate there were no modern dentists, it was the hairdresser who played an important role in empirical medicine, It was he who, apart from circumcision, practiced bleeding in all its forms and often exercised the profession of dentist. Moroccan dentistry as a medical discipline and, on the contrary, of general medicine, began to thrive only belatedly during the protectorate. This period was marked by the emergence of the first texts governing the profession. Since then, this discipline has continued to evolve. Currently the practice of dentistry in Morocco is governed by laws, the oldest of which dates from 1960, and the most recent in 2007.
