UNMC College of Dentistry Dental Museum
The UNMC College of Dentistry began its museum in 1977 under Dean Richard E. Bradley. The museum collection represents the history of dentistry in Nebraska and is one of the largest collections of dental artifacts in the United States dating from the 1850s to the present. The collection exhibits include:
- Five period dental offices from the 1850s-1930s
- A laboratory from the 1890s-1900s
- Thousands of dental artifacts
The museum collection has grown to the point that there is not enough space to house it, so special displays are set up throughout the year.
