About the British Dental Museum

The British Dental Association Museum began in 1919 when Lilian Lindsay, the first female to qualify as a dentist in the UK, donated several old dental instruments to the BDA.

She had been storing them in a box under her bed.

Today the collections would no longer fit under a bed as they extend to about 30,000 items.

Spanning the 17th century to the present day, the highlights of the collection include dental chairs, dentures, drills, oral hygiene products, and of course Waterloo teeth.
