Bricks and Plaques

Do you know a dental professional who is retiring? What about a dental student that just graduated? There are many reasons to honor someone special in your life. Honor them by giving them their own piece of the nation's official museum of the dental profession.

*Brick orders have a 2-4 week processing time before arriving at the museum and plaque orders have a 2-3 week processing time before arriving at the museum. Due to the ordering process, the museum places orders from our brick and plaque suppliers four times a year in January, March, June, and September. Bricks and plaques can be ordered sooner for an additional fee by contacting the museum at 410-706-0600 or emailing Patrick Cutter.
