I would like to dedicate this textbook specifically to Dr Fatiha Chandad and the Dental Faculty at the University of Laval in Quebec, Canada, who devoted countless hours to training students like me in dentistry.
Dr Chandad, Dean of Dental Research, was someone who motivated me and more importantly made it possible for students to work within her laboratory on research projects during their 4 years of dental studies. It was here that I first started my research activities on PRP/PRF and became fascinated with research as a whole. Dr Chandad is one of the only people I have ever met never wanting to be recognized for her achievements, instead insisting that her students be recognized and at the forefront of their own success. It was during these times that I was awarded the prestigious Hatton Award in Canada and was later named the IADR Young Investigator of the Year in Implant Dentistry.
In appreciation of her contributions to my career, 100% of the royalties from this textbook will be donated to create a scholarship named after her for new dental graduates at the University of Laval. Milles fois merci pour tout tes efforts!
Many important medical/dental discoveries were stumbled upon by pure chance. An example of this is osseointegration, which launched the modern era of dental implants and orthopedic-embedded prostheses. It occurred when orthopedic researcher Per-Ingvar Brånemark found that his titanium research cages in sheep were so completely ingrown with bone that he couldn’t remove them. Similarly, platelet-rich plasma (PRP)/platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) was discovered by the serendipity of observing accelerated and more complete healing in patients who developed hematomas. From that simple observation in the 1980s, the components of the blood clot responsible for the advanced healing have since been determined to be the complete and active growth factors in the alpha granules of viable platelets
