About the Museum


The BOS Museum has a collection of over 2000 objects, books and archives representing orthodontic diagnosis, treatment and research. The collection includes case study models, equipment, tools, leaflets, catalogues, books and archives from the BOS and its preceding societies. The majority of the collection is held at the BOS Headquarters.

The BOS Museum aims to selectively develop, preserve and interpret collections relating to the social history, practice and professional development of orthodontics in the U.K.

The Archive and Museum Committee is responsible for the care of the BOS Museum and its collections. The Committee furthers the preservation of documents and artefacts of historic, political and scientific interest relevant to the practice of orthodontics and fosters and promotes interest in the history of orthodontics.

The scope of the collection and collecting criteria are detailed in the BOS Museum Collection Policy.
