Talking to Your Patients

In the years ahead, your Patients will likely ask you about dental stem cells as more and more research progress is publicly announced. You can direct your patients to StemSave’s brochure and  our web site with full confidence  they will find the information helpful as they consider using StemSave to protect their family’s future health.

StemSave was designed in collaboration with Dentists to provide you with a practice-enhancing capability that gives your Patients the opportunity to collect their stem cells.  StemSave understands the unique relationship that a Dentist has with their Patients.  StemSave encourages you to direct your Patients to our informative website www.StemSave.com to answer any questions they may have on the science of stem cells or the StemSave system in general. 

We respect your time, as well as your desire to provide your Patients with the highest level of care when  opportunities to save their stem cells present themselves.  Use www.StemSave.com as your resource tool for topics and discussions related to the current research and therapies involving stem cells.  StemSave provides you with everything you need, from the science of stem cells to StemSave's convenient recovery and cryopreservation process for your Patients' stem cells.

A healthy pulp of a tooth means viable Stem Cells

We recommend that you recover only healthy stem cells in a timely fashion.  You can explain to your Patients that the stem cells are located within the pulp of the tooth and that those being recovered need to be viable.  In order for these cells to be viable, they must have an intact blood supply prior to recovery. 

You can simply explain to your Patients that a deciduous tooth that fell out on its own, or one that is "hanging on by a thread" is not a good source for viable stem cells. Good sources of stem cells are any non-infected teeth with viable pulp cells.  At the time of recovery, visually inspect the exposed pulp to confirm that it is a healthy color -- StemSave takes care of the rest.

Remember that not all deciduous teeth resorb in the same fashion or at the same rate. Some deciduous teeth may contain more pupal tissue than others. When the tooth arrives at our processing facility, we will assess the viability of the cells to determine if this tissue is a candidate for cryopreservation.
 
We also want your Patients to know that we are your partner. If for some reason the cells recovered are not viable, we will credit your patient’s StemSave account.  We explain to you and your Patient the possible reasons that the cells were not viable and encourage you to pursue collection again at the next available opportunity, at no additional cost.

When talking with your Patients, make them aware that they have the opportunity to collect their own stem cells during many planned dental procedures.  Loose deciduous teeth, impacted third molars, and teeth recommended for extraction for orthodontic indications, are all ideal potential candidates for stem cell recovery.
