The Museum of Dental School opened its doors to the public in 2013 and is the only one of its kind in Eastern Mediterranean. It deals with the collection and study (recording, documentation, evaluation) of dental evidence in Greece. The main exhibition hall includes dental instruments dated from the 19th century.

For example, there are dental drills, tooth forceps, instruments used in operative dentistry, instruments and appliances for dental prosthesis, dental handpieces and a very rare dental unit with an even more rare dental light. Also, Dental school's historical archive is incorporated to the Museum since 1916.

At the same time, the museum considers of equal importance the building of a dialectic relationship between the present and the past. So, exhibition islets were created in selected areas of the Dental School complex. In this way the exhibits can be viewed in a daily basis, not only by the visitors of the Museum but also by the students and the patients. The Dental School Museum utilizing the advantages of modern Internet and Multimedia Technology developed also a Digital Museum (

The purpose was not only to show the exhibits but also to feature the history of Dental Education and Practice in Greece. Furthermore, organized tours are available for pupils, students and adult groups, after consultation. Moreover, special educational programs are designed for students of primary and secondary schools. The museum supports primary research projects and supports the undergraduate studies program.
