A dentist is someone who looks after other people's teeth. They clean your teeth properly, and fix up holes in people's teeth. They can also make your teeth look better by straightening or whitening them. Sometimes going to see the dentist can be painful or scarey, so if you don't want a dentist trip to be bad, you should look after your teeth and brush them every day.

Their main role is to find out what is wrong with someone and prescribe treatment, while a nurse's role is mainly to look after sick or injured people as they get better.
