Adult stem cells therapy can be an efficacious treatment for many diseases and disabilities. New sources of stem cells in adult organisms are continuously emerging. Dental tissues that are easily accessible by a tooth extraction have been identified as a source of postnatal mesenchymal stem cells capable of self-renewal and multipotency. Here, we describe accurately the technical procedure to isolate mesenchymal stem cells from dental pulp (DPSCs), characterize their immunophenotype, and assay their osteogenic capacity.
