what is the difference between dentistry & stomatology?

Varying opinions: Stomatology is a medical discipline which concerns the study of the mouth. Historically it was a recognized medical specialty in many regions of the world, although today people are more likely to refer to stomatology as “dental medicine,” depending on where they are located. In some countries, it is still possible to specialize in stomatology as a discipline separate from dentistry.
