Get off the highway and turn left onto the driveway for a factory. Then you can walk to the tooth. Totally worth the stop, especially to see the companion pieces.

Giant tooth.

Pretty funny -- the man and woman statue are great. Theres a few other statues nearby. Worth a stop.

Tooth and fake onlookers.

World's Largest Tooth

The faux statue couple by the tooth appear to be confused by it. Perhaps they don't see the artistic merit in it, but really, a giant tooth is beautiful!

Largest tooth.

I think the directions may be a bit off. The sculpture park is located on Klockner Road, but the molar itself is on Sloan Avenue by the I-295 exit. If you are traveling south on I-295 and take Exit 65, you will immediately see the tooth on the left as you come off the exit ramp. Two life-sized pictures of a man and woman have been added to the site so you get a good perspective of how big this tooth is!

[Ann Carden, 11/29/2008]

We'd heard the tooth had gone on tour, and now it's returned to a new location on Sloan Ave., about a mile northeast of its former spot on Klockner Road. It's new spot is next to a big parking lot, which makes it much easier to photograph. The two gawking statues are part of the art, and make a nice addition.
