Meet History’s First Dentist


It may sound like some sort of new pharmaceutical boeing hawked between Skyrizi and Bloxiverz commercials. But it’s actually the name of history’s oldest recorded dentist.

Young Ra, or lil’ Hezzy as we like to call him, lived and ruled during Egypt’s Third Dynasty as a high official with the title wer-ibeḥsenjw, which may means “great of the dentists” or “great one of the ivory cutters,” among many other interpretations, depending on which expert on ancient Egyptian you’re talking to. 

The fact that he bore the name “Ra” may indicate godly associations, too. So forgive him for feeling himself.

His tomb, an ornate circa 2600 beauty known for its stand-out carved cedar wood panels and wall paintings, bears an inscription stating: “The greatest of those who deal with teeth, and of physicians.” 10 out of 10 Hesy-Ras concurred with that sentiment in a survey that would go uncontested for 5,000 years. 

Anyway, everything we know about him was buried with him in a massive site discovered in 1861 by some French Indiana Jones types. And all those years later, it’s been broken down on Wikipedia.

So that’s history’s first named dentist for you. Only… it’s not that simple. 

Though Hesy-Ra was certainly an official under pharaoh Djoser, owing to confusion of the translation of his title wer-ibeḥsenjw, he may have in fact been more notable for his artistic or architectural ivory-carving skills than his actual ability to fix one’s teeth. The name may indicate he was actually more of a mason than a dentist.

In any case, thanks for the cool tomb, Hezzy. 

We’ll remember you for at least surviving, if not inventing, some crude forms of ancient dentistry long enough to still have us talking about you.

Last month the Bone Guys injected a little extra seasonal spirit into the atmosphere when we released 68 named, adorable-and-fluffy, lucky bunnies out into the world, sending them out to friends, clients, associates, and anyone we felt could use a cuddle over the spring holiday.

These AI images veer from the adorable anthropomorphic teeth, fascinating teeth cross sections, and terrifying dental devices of ToothGenAI; the surreal subversions of famous paintings featuring razor-sharp canines of artist Andrew Perkins; the malevolent false teeth sets conjured by Intergalactic Museum of Dentures; and the just-plain-old plasticky weirdness of these works by Lemon Synthography of so many ecstatic individuals bearing recessed gums.

These images, crafted entirely using AI art generators and their creators’ imaginations, may not further the dental genre per se, but add a toothy new genre to the horror and humor-filled art world found in abundance online, spawning and populating  hashtags like #aiteeth and #astrodenturism.

For those of us who remain fascinated, frightened, or greatly enthused about teeth, there’s a whole new universe of crazy dental imagery to soak in or shun, as we see fit in the brave new world of 2023.
