On January 26 we are celebrating the Dental Drill Appreciation Day. Yes, you read that correctly, this day 146 years ago the American dentist George Green patented the first electric drill. Most may wonder who, except doctors, would like this instrument. However, the modern dental drill today allows dental procedures to be performed faster and more efficiently than in the past. In Japan, for example, in the past, teeth were dislocated with a special hammer and later uprooted with bare hands!
