I remember reading a few threads last year concerning collecting teeth and was wondering if this is mandatory at all schools. I'm most likely going to be attending UMich, so if anyone knows the specifics for their program then all the better.
That is the recipe USC advises in their paperwork.I seem to recall that a 10% solution of bleach was recommended. Don't quote me on that. Perhaps a dental student could chime in here and confirm?
Bleach is probably cheaper though...They told me apple juice does the job. Make sure, it's sugar-free.
True but in our office we have formaldehyde for some ungodly reason. There probably is some valid reason for having it in a dental office that I am unaware of.IMO bleach would be best since it is an everyday household item... (never heard of the apple juice thing)
I remember when I first began dental assisting I was in a really old dental office and I think they used it for their sterilizer (could be wrong)True but in our office we have formaldehyde for some ungodly reason.

You mean to tell me you worked your butt off to get into dental school and you don't have the fortitude to find 300 teeth?What if you guys can't find teeth! 300 is very hard to find!
