Stoughton, Massachusetts: Stump Tooth Humanoid (Gone)

Carved from the stump of an ancient tree, the tooth sported sunglasses, bulging biceps, and a toothy grin. But decay caught up eventually.

Kid Care Dental. Take exit 19B off Rte 24 toward Central St. Merge onto Harrison Blvd, which becomes Dykeman Way and then Central St. Drive three miles. The tooth will be on the right, just past a row of obscuring trees, next to a large white house, set back from the road. Look for the blue Kid Care Dental sign.

Stump Tooth Humanoid

I am sorry to tell that the tooth was pulled, and is no longer here. We went 9/7/2020.

Tree Stump Carved Into Giant Tooth

A giant tooth carved from a tree stump sits outside a dentist's office. The molar is 10 feet tall and was sculpted in 2015 by chainsaw artist Jesse Green. The stump is what is left of a European beech that was planted in 1726 on the day that Stoughton was incorporated and fell many years later, during a hurricane, onto the dentist's car.
