Dentistry: Innovation and Education

The University of Melbourne’s Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences has three museums: the Henry Forman Atkinson Dental Museum, the Medical History Museum, and the Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology. All contribute greatly to the life of the faculty through teaching, research, and engagement with our students, alumni and the broader community.

Our dental museum is considered the oldest and most comprehensive dental collection in Australia. It is rich with objects, artefacts, equipment, books and photographs, many relating to the teaching of dentistry and related courses in the faculty and its predecessor schools. The museum connects the University of Melbourne to Australian and international dental associations, celebrating the legacy of generations of practitioners, educators and researchers.
