Numerous Australian languages contrast (laminal) dental, (apical) alveolar and (subapical) retroflex stop phonemes. There should be other examples e.g. in Ladefoged & Maddieson.

Subject: [phoNet] Retroflex Stops

Does anybody know if there is any non-Indic language with
a phonemic contrast between dental and retroflex stops?
