New Virtual Dental Museum Highlights Dental History Online

Posted on July 29, 2015

Five new exhibits showcasing fascinating artifacts of dental history can now be viewed on a newly launched website,, created by University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. The exhibits are also on display on digital kiosks located on the first and fourth floors of the school. The digital exhibits are part of the ongoing Virtual Museum Project, which began in 2012 as a creative way to present the school's A. W. Ward Museum collection. For the past two years, Dr. Dorothy Dechant, curator of the A.W. Ward Museum, has been working closely with school photographer Jon Draper to carefully photograph artifacts of all shapes and sizes - from tiny dental burs to heavy antique dental chairs.
