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, which began in the 1850s. The collection exhibits include:

The museum collection has grown to the point that there is not enough space to house it, so each year during the alumni reunion in the fall, the museum is brought to life throughout the college in special displays.
