Dentists treat patients every day with conditions that could be solved with stem cells in the future. Patients should know about this promising technology which could safeguard their children’s future.
Lexington, MA (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
Provia Labs’ Store-A-Tooth™, a leader in dental stem cell preservation, announces Traci White as the dedicated representative spearheading the company’s newly launched South Florida field office. White brings over 11 years of experience in stem cell banking to her new role. Her understanding of the science of stem cells will aid her in educating the South Florida community on the benefits of banking stem cells from teeth.
Ms. White will be responsible for providing resources and support to dentists who offer the Store-A-Tooth service to patients in their practices, as well as educating local families about the powerful choice they can make to bank their children’s stem cells when teeth come out. In addition, White will be charged with introducing Store-A-Tooth locally to organizations such as the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) and the Cleveland Clinic Florida.
“We invited Store-A-Tooth to participate in our practice’s Annual Scientific Conference and Dentist Day because we think it’s important that our referring dentists learn about new technologies,” said Dr. Kurt Friedman, DDS, an oral surgeon with the Oral Facial Reconstruction and Implant Center of South Florida and a Fellow of the AAOMS.
Dr. Jeffrey Eisner, DMD, of Eisner Oral Surgery in Miami concurs: “I treat patients every day with conditions that could be solved with stem cells in the future. Patients should know about this cutting edge and promising technology which could safeguard their children’s future.” According to Eisner’s Vice President of Operations, Sonny Diblasi – who stored her son’s dental stem cells last year – the practice routinely tells patients about Store-A-Tooth as part of their patient education prior to scheduled extractions.
Traci White joins Store-A-Tooth after 11 years as one of the top Clinical Consultants at Viacord, a pioneer in the cord blood banking industry. White began her career at Viacord as Senior Account Business Manager serving South Florida and was instrumental in the inauguration of private cord blood/cord tissue stem cell banking in the women's healthcare industry by providing educational services to OB/GYNs and their patients. Today, more than 80 diseases are treatable by cord blood stem cell transplants.
According to Howard Greenman, CEO of Store-A-Tooth, “Traci’s vast knowledge of stem cell banking will prove to be a valuable asset to the South Florida community as she will aid many families in making an informed decision to preserve their children’s dental stem cells for future use.”
Stem cells are present in healthy teeth, and can easily be collected as a child loses baby teeth, or from teeth being pulled for orthodontia or wisdom teeth extractions. Dental stem cell banking gives families the opportunity to store their child’s stem cells long after birth for potential use in therapies for conditions such as type 1 diabetes, spinal cord injuries, stroke, heart attack and neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
