As a dentist I was expecting more from this museum to cover the history of dentistry both worldwide and as it developed in the United States. It is more for the general public and geared more for the class trip from the local public school. Many of the exhibits are just replicas and they appear dated. The Washington’s tooth exhibit took up a lot of space that could have been used for other more interesting topics in dentistry. The tour took not more than 45 minutes. I do think that this museum should be in Chicago or Washington DC. At least in Chicago there are major dental meetings which could increase the traffic to the museum. The American Dental Association is there as well. So if your interested in basic dental history then try this for a morning after breakfast.

Awesome museum
Apr 2019 • Family
Great museum! We drove over 3 hours just for this museum. We had a great time. I'm in dental and our child is interested in it as well. We were the only ones there, which was nice but also means that it is completely under rated. It was free for military which was awesome, but the price still is cheap. We were there for about an hour. Old instruments and George Washington's dentures were our favorite!

The Museum hosted us for the American Board of Forensic Odontology dinner
Feb 2019 • Business
Thousands of forensic scientists were in Baltimore in Feb 2019 for the American Academy of Forensic Sciences annual meeting. As part of that, the American Board of Forensic Odontology held its annual members' dinner at the National Museum of Dentistry, and the facility was awesome. We are forensic odontologists, yes, but are dentists first, and the Museum was absolutely fascinating for anyone with a bit of interest in dentistry. Highly recommended!

An excellent display of dentally related items

This is a well displayed, historic, and interactive museum. Some of the history is unbelievable, and well preserved. I learned a lot, there is also good education of children.

Best Kept Secret in Baltimore

What a great interactive Museum for children and adults! Very cool collections of antique dental instruments and even George Washington's denture! We were surprised to have enjoyed it so much.

This is a best kept secret in the city I am sure...I would assume it has limited appeal unless you're a dentist, dental student or have a fascination with teeth...but I have been told there are some interesting things to see

Stumbled upon - glad I walked in
Sep 2017 • Solo
Was on a morning walk while stuck in Baltimore for a day when I stumbled upon this museum. I figured it was too unusual to pass up, and it was worth the 30 or so minutes I took to walk through. I was the only visitor on that Thursday morning. Very clean spaces and an interesting look into a profession most of us try to avoid.

Not Bad - but still a museum about Dentistry
Jun 2017 • Couples
We went - it's high tech - it's fun - but disturbing at the same time. All I kept thinking is that these dentists have some money. As the museum was a costly endeavor and well put together, but in the end it is still a museum about dentistry.

more interesting than you can imagine
Feb 2017 • Solo
Going to the dentist is not fun right, well this museum makes the most of the time honored torture. Highlights are George Washington's Dentures that are much to many school teachers chagrin not of wood. has some hands on activities for youngsters and lots of good historical data. the old time commercials are also a highlight. Didn't seem to have any charge even though the website says it does there was no ticket sales location.

Nice little museum
Jun 2015 • Friends
This place sits on UM campus. Visit by appt only!! So you must call before you arrive to schedule appt. No front desk other than the security guard and they will call the dentist down and he tells you where to go, after that you are on your own. It was fine, plenty to see and hear, good for an hour of entertainment and worth 5 bucks to see. Not much parking around as you are in the middle of the city. We took a taxi to get there.
