Sindecuse Museum

The Sindecuse Museum of Dentistry, housed within the School of Dentistry, is one of a handful of museums throughout the world devoted to preserving and exhibiting the history of dentistry. 

The Museum exhibits and preserves a historical museum collection containing over 25,000 objects focused on the history of dentistry with particular interest on dental practice and technology in the United States and Michigan dating from the 18th century to today. We are dedicated to educating our audiences about the history of dentistry through museum exhibition, related programs, research, and preservation of the collections.

Don't miss our new exhibit "Student Reflections: A Retrospective of Dental Education.



"We hailed from far and near, and though strangers at first, we soon worked and played and scrapped as real brothers should. Each day we became better acquainted, friendships strengthened." 

Bion Bates, University of Michigan School of Dentistry Class of 1905
