Store-A-Tooth Dental Stem Cell Banking Program Expanded
Posted on April 8, 2012
Provia Laboratories, LLC recently expanded its Store-A-ToothTM offering to dental professionals by making it easier for dentists and hygienists to provide patients the opportunity to preserve their family’s stem cells.
Specifically, the company’s Store-A-Toothservice enables families to save their own adult stem cells – from baby teeth ready to fall out, teeth pulled for orthodontic reasons, and extracted wisdom teeth.
Dental professionals play a role in making patients aware of the dental stem cell banking option, giving families the choice to safely and securely store their stem cells today – in a convenient and affordableway – so that they can take advantage of future therapies in regenerative medicine and dentistry, including those being studied for type 1 diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular disease, spinal cord injuries, and Parkinson’s disease, to name a few.
“We have made dental stem cell banking more accessible for consumers by offering multiple options for financing, prepayment, and family plans,” said Provia Labs CEO Howard Greenman. “Our intent is to become true partners with the dental community in educating the public about the potential of dental stem cells and in providing a viable option to interested consumers.
We realized that the best way to forge this partnership was to eliminate any extra steps for the dentist.”
