Abstract

Gene therapy may become an integral tool in dental practice early in the 21st century. It and other biological therapies are expected to be applied to oral diseases and disorders during the midpractice lifetime of today's dental students. If the applications of oral gene transfer are expanded to systemic diseases, oral health care providers in the future could routinely be "gene therapists" with therapeutic targets well outside the oral cavity.
