A dentist was a medical practitioner specialising in the care of teeth. After eating a sweet, the First Doctor felt a pang of toothache. (TV: The Celestial Toymaker) When the TARDIS landed in Tombstone, Arizona in October 1881, he sought out a dentist and found the establishment of Doc Holliday.

Coupled with the Doctor's miscommunication, this fooled Harper into believing the Doctor was Holliday. (TV: The Gunfighters)
