Dentistry collection

Technical heritage of Slovene dentistry

The dentistry collection is unique in its contents: it exhibits old instruments and equipment that were used by Slovenian dentists, dental surgeons and dental technicians in the 20th century. Over several decades, Franc Štofla, a dentist from Celje, collected an extensive collection of items, which bears witness to the development of dentistry. He donated the collection to the Celje Museum of Recent history in 1991, for which he was awarded the prestigious Valvasor prize of the Slovenian Museum Association in 1997. The collection was conceived in order to secure and protect an exceptional part of our cultural heritage – the medical technical heritage that is otherwise not presented in Slovenian museums. We ensure the growth and development of the collection and present it to the public.
