    About the Contributors


    Laird Sheldahl is the lead author and illustrator of this textbook. He has a Ph.D. in physiology and pharmacology. He currently teaches at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, OR. His Ph.D. thesis studied a morphogen (Wnt) involved in the formation of the head and neural crest cells. This morphogen is re-used during development of the teeth. To study this process in frogs (their embryos are not inside uteruses, which makes them easier to study) he did a lot of microscopy. He does not have a background in dental hygiene, and is therefore very happy to have expert collaborators.
