In this 50th episode of The Clements Bookworm, Sindecuse Museum of Dentistry curator, Tamara Barnes discusses two enchanting characters associated with teeth – the Tooth Fairy and the Tooth Worm. Surprising and delightful beliefs from all over the world will be explored including ancient tales and modern-day superstitions. The Bookworm will meet the Tooth Worm, the mythical culprit who was believed to cause dental caries, and which was selected by student vote to be explored in a new exhibit.

Barnes will include an overview of the Museum’s mission including how it uses objects and images to make the history of oral health more relevant. A new exhibit, Teeth Transformations, explores the myriad ways people alter our teeth in order to express themselves.
