What is correct?
What is used more often?
I've never even heard of stomatology, so I'll go with dentistry. But I'm sure there'll be someone who knows, 'cause I sure as hell don't.
They mean different things no? Dentistry is the word used in English for things a Dentist does. There's also Orthodontistry which is a specialism normally involving the fitting of braces.
Edit: I think stomatology is effectively a defunct branch of medicine to do with the mouth which is mostly dealt with by Dentists these days.
Ok...so my DENTIST works at the Faculty of Stomatology, she teaches some subjects in DENTISTRY. Serbian words for a dentist are ZUBAR (derivated from zub-tooth) and STOMATOLOG.
The reason I ask this is because I have never heard STOMATOLOGY used in the English language. But the name of her uni is literally translated- Faculty of Stomatology.
Bump, seriously! Bump!
Come on you cunning linguists, I need more answers
Stomatology is the science of the mouth and its diseases. It can be studied, but not practiced. It is the science of dentistry, not the medicine of it.
Dentistry is either the profession, or the science dealing with the prevention and treatment of diseases and malformations of the teeth, gums, and oral cavity. It canbe studied and practiced.
Stomatology is not a commonly used word. One does not visit a stomatologist. One visits a dentist.
^^^Likes words. A lot. Should have been an anthropologist instead of a baker.

I have his your work, you are the best baker I have ever seen))))))
