- Dentistry is usually a subject most people don't care to even think about. This exhibit is a testament to human technological advancement. Visitors can see how far we've progressed after viewing early 19th Century drills, forceps, and other instruments, which would be considered barbarous by today's standards. Another display was created courtesy of Edgar "Painless" Parker, a colorful West Coast dentist. Pulling the tooth was usually the only way to cure a toothache at one time. A bucket containing the thousands of teeth he pulled remains as a monument to his gentle methods.
