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!
