Abstract:
In the works of Cervantes, one can observe a detailed knowledge of dental matters. Although some of his biographers think that this is the result of the very broad cultural knowledge of this distinguished Spanish writer, the authors of this paper think differently. Having studied and analyzed many documents referring to the Cervantes family, especially those which dealt with the strong influence the teachings of Cervantes' father had on his son, we have reached the conclusion that his father must have been a 16th Century dentist.
