Chapter 6

No One Likes the Dentist

Peter Hollands

Abstract

This chapter summarises the amazing progress which has been made from the discovery that there are ‘tissue forming’ stem cells inside teeth which can be ‘extracted’ and potentially used as the basis of future therapies. The process of dental stem cell collection and storage is described along with an overview of the potential applications of dental pulp stem cells.
