The article presents information about Friedrich Otto Walkhoff, a distinguished dental professional and about his contribution to the field of dentistry. He was born on April 23, 1860 in Braunschweig, Germany. In his high school years he was enthusiastic about physics and electrotechnics. With the advice of the vice president of the German Dental Association, he decided to study dentistry. After his graduation from the Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universitat Berlin, he was appointed an instructor in the technical department of the Dental Institute at the same University. He was very concerned about the dental profession. In 1918 he forced the establishment to accept dentistry as an independent branch of science.
