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:

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. 


UNMC Wigton Heritage Center Exhibit

The Stanton D. Harn, Ph.D., Dental Gallery is located in the UNMC Wigton Heritage Center on the UNMC Omaha campus. The gallery features a recreated 1870-1880s dental office and a video tour of the College of Dentistry's Dental Museum.
