Ear, Nose and Throat; But Not Your Eyes or Teeth

I'm looking for an answer as to why a person's mouth, specifically their teeth and a person's eyes are treated more like your car than part of your body. So much so, that separate insurance is needed to cover the needed treatment.

I understand the need for specialist in those areas of the body, but I consider the care and treatment delivered to the teeth and the eyes to be no more or less important than to a person's finger, knee or ear.

Speaking of ear, many times it is difficult to determine an earache from a toothache. I'm sure this has happened to many here. At what point in medical history did this separation take place, and why?
