Chew On This! Exhibit













Take a deeper look into the wonders of your mouth at Chew On This! In celebration of National Children’s Dental Health Month, the Chew on This! exhibit opened on February 2, 2017 and gives visitors an opportunity to explore a large lower jaw that features cavities, fillings, swollen gums, and plaque. This exhibit is produced by Delta Dental Foundation and Impression 5, and presented by Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum.

Suit up in dental coats and use giant toothbrushes, floss and mock dental instruments on the teeth to practice good oral health habits such as brushing and flossing. Children and adults will be challenged to make tooth-friendly food choices while “shopping” in a simulated grocery store. The exhibit also features a Teeth Discovery Center so children can explore with magnifying lenses, microscopes, and other dental tools.

Delta Dental Foundation has provided over $20,000 in field trip grants to eligible pre-K to fourth grade classrooms. For other scholarship information, visit
