The Dentistry Museum Collection in the School of Dentistry provides a glimpse into the early teaching of dentistry at the University of Alberta and the early history of the dental profession in Alberta.

The collection represents the profession of dentistry in Alberta during the time of Dr. Harry Ernest Bulyea, the first Dean of Dentistry (1917-1942). The Dentistry Museum Collection includes hand instruments, dental equipment and furnishings from 1917-1942, teaching aids and equipment specifically related to Dr. Bulyea.

As the University of Alberta is enacting additional safety measures regarding the state of public health emergency in Alberta, all museum collections will be closed until further notice.
