The latest edition of the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s podcast “The UMB Pulse” features the Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry, home to more than 40,000 dental artifacts—including George Washington’s dentures.
Discover the stories of just some of the thousands of artifacts inside the Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry, located on the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore. The museum has reopened to the public with two new exhibits (podcast time 13:38), and, of course, fan favorites—such as the first president’s dentures (16:35).
Scott Swank, DDS, MS, MBA, FACD, a clinical assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry (UMSOD) and curator of the museum, and Patrick Cutter, MBA, MA, a research assistant professor at UMSOD and assistant director of the museum, share the stories behind the teeth on this edition of the podcast.
