Regenerative Dentistry is emerging as a new research-oriented field of Dentistry, promoting the development of treatments that enhance the body’s own repair mechanisms. It is a new concept that challenges modern dentistry to step-up dental research, translating it into new clinical treatments. The “Regenerative Dentistry approach” is based on the development of cell-based therapy, tissue engineering, and organ engineering, employing a knowledge of craniofacial and stem cell biology.
We are facing continuous progress in the application of dental stem cells in these therapies, where we can accelerate the repair and regeneration of dental tissues by using cells to deliver growth factors or cellular signals or to directly provide stem cells that are able to differentiate (become) multiple cell types.
The following specific areas will be discussed: (i) cellular and molecular biology of tissue repair; (ii) mechanisms of recruitment and stem cell niche in craniofacial tissue; (iii) recent advances, challenges and future directions in craniofacial development research and stem cell biology.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Dentistry Journal is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
