The use of human teeth for teaching/education and research in dentistry is a common practice. The establishment of Human Teeth Bank (BDH) in institutions of education is essential to enable the safe handling in teaching, research and the discovery of new technologies which make use of human teeth. Before BDH establishment is appropriate, its organization and legalization must be disclosed. Procedures of collection, cleaning and disinfection, separation and storage, disposal and/or loan and biosecurity should be developed and improved. The aim of this study is to search the number of BDH inside schools of Dentistry units at Rio Grande do Sul state and to review the literature about the importance of BDH in institutions of education and research as well as its legal, technical and scientific aspects.
