How come dentist's don't do animals teeth?

Vets are doctors for all animals. Dentists are doctors just for teeth. I dont see why human doctors do most everything,  but dentists just do human teeth, while vets are expected to do everything for animals including teeth. It seems only fair

    Because they're not qualified to deal with teeth of animals and have no experience with their teeth either, so they can't do it.

    Human operating Dentists are scared of animals as they have never faced them. No experience to handle an animal.

    For the same reason doctors do not treat sick animals and surgeons don't operate on dogs. They're human specialists and have no expertise or knowledge on other different species. And they do have veterinary dentists.

    There are a very few dentists affiliated with zoos.
