Stem Cell Update from Save-A-Tooth

Dental study provides wealth of stem cell information

A new Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC study uncovers new details on how bundles of nerves and arteries interact with stem cells.
It’s one thing to get a stem cell to turn into something that closely resembles another kind of cell, say a heart cell. But it’s another thing altogether to get it to change into a cell that not only resembles another cell, but acts exactly like it too.

Children’s Dental Health Month

St. Paul's Calvary School

St. Paul’s Calvary Child Care

February is Children’s Dental Health Month.  As part of our commitment to the community and the American Dental Association, via the New Jersey Dental Association, we were able to bring dental education and a bunch of smiles to St. Paul’s Calvary Child Care Program. Jennifer Dennisseur and Dr. Schonberg talked to both children and staff.  The children were given some basic tooth brushing instruction, and advice on snacking.  There was even a fact or two appreciated by the teachers. Starting children out with the proper habits in crucial to long term good habits.  These children are on their way to a cavity free life!
