Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry

***UPDATE*** The Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry will be closed to the public for the month of February as repairs are ongoing to fix the flood damage that occurred in January. We apologize for any inconvenience and are working diligently to have the museum open again as soon as possible. If you have any questions about the museum, they can be directed to Patrick Cutter at 410-706-0600 or pcutter@umaryland.edu


Smiles are always welcome...

At the NMD, we celebrate the importance of healthy smile and the unique history of the dental profession. With over 40,000 objects and an archive chronicling the development of professional dentistry, we are the premiere institute for researching dental history in the United States. Visit the museum to sink your teeth into fun for all ages with our interactive exhibits and mouthfuls of toothy history!
