    The tour begins outside. Samuels Sinclair Dental Center is located conveniently on the grounds of Rhode Island Hospital. Easily reached by bus or shuttle, the center features a handicap accessible entrance in addition to the grand staircase. The dental center opened in 1931 as part of Rhode Island Hospital's division of dentistry and oral and maxillofacial surgery.

    Joseph Samuels, then owner of the Outlet Company and WJAR TV, made a generous donation to fund construction of the center to ensure that those who could not afford to pay would be afforded quality dental care.

    The late Joseph S. Sinclair, Samuels' grandson, and Rosalyn Sinclair, continued this tradition with a charitable donation of their own. Our name reflects the legacy of their family's support.
