My mom is looking for used dentures or dental molds for an art project. Where would someone find such a thing?

nursing home? maybe the family of a resident would be willing to donate them---after all they can't be reused.

hulahulagirl's got it. I'm a country boy and my grandpappy used to tell us about heading to the funeral home when he needed a new set of choppers. The Funeral Director would usually have a bushel basket full of discarded uppers and lowers just for the taking!

'Course folks are prolly more sensitive about these things than they used to be, but give it a try.

Perfect! She knows JUST the guy to ask. He's been checking her pulse for years, this would be a chance for him to seal the deal....

If that doesn't work, try a dental school.
