Missed out on banking your baby’s cord blood?

There’s another alternative you can explore when your child reaches the age at which they start losing baby teeth. British company BioEden harvests stem cells from milk teeth – your child should have 12 to lose during their early years – and stores them at their dedicated facility in the UK. Stem cells can be used to treat a wide variety of diseases and conditions. Once you’re signed up with BioEden and your child loses a tooth, it’ll send a collection pack over here for you to safely transport the tooth to the company, and then stem cells will be extracted and stored. Prices start at around Dh5,500 for collection and a year’s storage. www.bioeden.com, 00 44 1484 505 620
