Dentist: Austrian term denoting a member of the medical profession in the field of dentistry but without a university degree, as opposed to "Zahnarzt" (= dental surgeon); "Dentisten" are admitted to practice (pursuant to the law of February 23, 1949) after passing a state exam and obtaining authorisation from the Provincial Governor. Training of "dentisten" was abolished in 1975, and all aspirants now have to undergo university degree studies.
