The dwarf dentist, Zahin Schmartz moves into Raymond Maarloeve's - the recently deceased private investigator - house in the Temple Quarter at the beginning of Chapter III. He collects the teeth of various creatures and is willing to pay for additions to this strange collection. The witcher agrees to keep an eye out for any interesting specimens and to bring them back to the dentist.
The dentist can be hard to find on occasion. He is either at his place of residence, on Merchant Street chatting up the local purveyors of wares or, in Chapter V he is in the abandoned executioner's tower in Old Vizima.
- Barghest skull is not necessary for completing the quest.
- Beast fangs can be found on local dogs; just wait until nightfall and kill one. Though he tells you he'll only pay 25 Orens, he actually pays 50.
- If you have any teeth in storage at the beginning of Chapter V, be sure to pack them into your inventory. The reason being, you will not be able to access your storage after you leave the dike.
- The Boxer's Tooth is required to obtain the Mahakaman Rune Sihill.
- If you do not have any Barghest skulls left and if you have sold some to Kalkstein in Chapter I, he may still have them. The blacksmith in Murky Waters can also have barghest skulls you have sold in previous chapters.
- Some have reported being able to get the sword at the end without the barghest skull, as long as they turned in everything else. One possibility is that if the player is carrying a skull at the time they start this quest, it may then require it, but if one isn't in inventory at the start, it won't.
- It is a very good idea to visit the Elven ruins inside the sewers before starting Echoes of Yesterday as then you will encounter an Alp there. Which is the only way to get Alp fangs in Chapter III, as a result it is possible to turn in all except the Devourer teeth (and Boxer's tooth of course) already in that chapter.
- If you do the Blue Eyes quest you will have the oppertunity to meet 3 Alps too. However even if you decide to kill them, or fool around while fighting the Flaming Rose soldiers along with them which may cause some of them to die during the fight, their corpses will not contain the fangs.
