AAA Editor Notes
Macaulay Museum of Dental History is on Ashley Ave. on the Medical University of South Carolina campus, adjacent to the Waring Historical Library at 175 Ashley Ave. South Carolina's history of dentistry is portrayed through artifacts, including dental chairs, manual drills, x-ray equipment and sets of teeth and dentures. A highlight is an instrument that Revolutionary patriot Paul Revere made for Dr. Josiah Flagg, who was the first American born in this country to practice dentistry as his sole occupation.
Note: At press time, the museum was closed for renovations; reopening was tentatively set for April 2017. Visitors must check in at the library before proceeding to the museum.
Guided tours are available.
