Sindecuse Museum


We encourage the public, University community and visiting dental patients to visit the Sindecuse Museum of Dentistry. You'll find the Museum does not have a traditional layout; exhibits are integrated into the scholastic atmosphere of the School of Dentistry and Kellogg Institute Buildings, adding to the impact of our displayed materials. Museum exhibits are designed with adult reading levels in mind, so we recommend that families and others bringing young children stay with and assist their children as they visit the Museum on their own. 

Since the Museum is set in a multipurpose building with ongoing classes, exams, research laboratories, as well as patient clinics and waiting rooms we ask that our visitors respect this studious atmosphere as they view the exhibits. 

The School of Dentistry and Kellogg Institute Buildings are wheelchair accessible and meet ADA requirements.
