British Dental Association Museum

The BDA Dental 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 association, 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! The collection includes: dental instruments and equipment furniture photographs archives fine and decorative art. The museum was developed primarily for the education of BDA members. However, in 1967, when the BDA moved to its present headquarters, the museum opened its doors to the general public. In autumn 2005 the museum was redisplayed with the aim of making it even more accessible to the public as well as dentists.
