We all have teeth and we'd like to keep them, but we might not know much about them. Did you know that the ameloblast is a cell important to the growth of enamel? That an odontoblast is crucial for the development of dentin? That fibroblasts help in teeth healing?

Come learn about the secret life of teeth with Kuracina during this entertaining and informative discussion.

Science Cafes bring together engineers, scientists and townspeople in a relaxed, informal setting, such as coffeehouses and pubs. The speaker makes a short presentation about a topic in his or her field, and then opens up the floor to discussion.
