Elkhart, Indiana: Concrete Block with Human Teeth

Dentist Joseph Stamp yanked thousands of teeth from his patients over a 60-year career, then embedded them in a concrete block that sat outside his former office -- until someone took it away in early 2016. There's some residue cement and teeth left, but not much.

West side of the city. On the northwest corner of W. Lexington Ave. and S. Riverside Drive, just west of the bridge across the Elkhart River. Look for the small concrete block sitting on a small patch of grass.

Concrete Block with Human Teeth

The concrete square is tiny, about 10"x14". It's in the grass of the apartment building opposite the bridge.

Concrete Block with Human Teeth

Tricky to find -- but it's still there -- and you can really see teeth!

Concrete Block with Human Teeth

The block appears to have been stolen or moved, but there is still a slab of concrete, partially buried, with some loose teeth that you can pick up and touch. I had three friends there and we all took pics of the slab. Very weird.

A dentist who had an office at this location apparently thought displaying thousands of teeth he'd yanked would be a welcome sight in Elkhart.
