Store-A-Tooth Stem Cells for Life

Just wondering if anyone on CC has heard/used or researched this company/services and if this makes any sense to do? I tried to search CC but STORE TOOTH and STEM bring back every shopping, dental, and engineering post on the website? Sounds very interesting.

    Wow - so much more than I've picked in a quick search - so how much do I owe you for this? Thanks for getting me on the right track!

    I either have too much time on my hands, have the paranoia to work for the FBI, or am just making a mountain out of a molehill. Definitely ask the opinion of someone who knows more about the medical specialty in question than I do before coming to any definitive conclusions, because I could be completely wrong about this company.

    If any of this does eventually prove helpful, I'm glad I could be of use.

    I think you provided a great outline to follow to analyze just about any company @notverysmart! You certainly are not living up to your user name :D

    I've asked relatives who are dentists as well as our personal dentist and oral surgeon. None are impressed with this "service."

    Thanks - now I'm interested in any research and clinical trials of adult stem cell use in battling dementia which my mother unfortunately has and is progressing rather fast.

    We looked into this briefly because my daughter will be having her wisdom teeth removed soon and has a condition for which stem cell therapy is promising. A friend who works at Tufts dental school confirmed that there is a lot of research being done with dental stem cells. However, the costs associated with this company's services were very high and the general thought from people in the field we spoke with was that her age at the time stem cells are recovered isn't likely to be crucial, so we did not pursue it.
