Our Vision

Our vision is for C-DOCTOR to be a national resource for the clinical translation of innovative technologies to regenerate dental and craniofacial tissues and organs lost to congenital disorders, trauma, and disease. C-DOCTOR will represent a public-private partnership with the primary mission of providing comprehensive clinical, scientific, technical, regulatory, financial, and management resources to promote cost-effective transition and timely development of dental, oral, and craniofacial tissue engineering/regenerative medicine products.
