The Musée d'Art Dentaire Pierre Fauchard is a museum of dental history located in the 16th arrondissement at the Académie Nationale de Chirurgie Dentaire, 22 Rue Émile Ménier, Paris, France. It is open Wednesday afternoons by appointment. The nearest métro and RER stations are Porte Dauphine, Avenue Foch, and Victor Hugo.
The museum dates to 1879 when Parisian dentists began to organize a dental school; with it the Musée d'Art Dentaire was established to display old techniques and tools. By 1892 its collection contained around 300 items. In 1937 the museum was renamed the Musée Pierre Fauchard to honor Pierre Fauchard (1678-1761), sometimes called the father of modern dentistry. Since 2003 its collections have been maintained by the Musée de l'Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris.
