Istituto Superiore di Odontoiatria "George Eastman"

The Istituto Superiore di Odontoiatria "George Eastman" in Rome (viale Regina Margherita, 287) is a dental clinic and dispensary. Discussions between George Eastman, Italian Ambassador Giacomo de Martino, Premier Benito Mussolini and others lead to Eastman's donation of one million dollars to the Italian government to build the clinic which was inaugurated on April 21, 19331.

The entrance to the Institute is embellished by two bronze doors with bas-reliefs representing scenes of odontoiatric healthcare.

In the entrance hall can be found a George Eastman's bust.
