odontoblast

 [o-don´to-blast]
one of the connective tissue cells that deposit dentin and form the outer surface of the dental pulp adjacent to the dentin.

o·don·to·blast

(ō-don'tō-blast),
One of the dentin-forming cells, derived from mesenchyme of neural crest origin, lining the pulp cavity of a tooth; odontoblasts are arranged in a peripheral layer in the dental pulp, each with an odontoblastic process extending part way into the dentinal tubules; the cells generally are columnar in the coronal pulp but are more cuboidal in the radicular area and adjacent to tertiary dentin.
[odonto- + G. blastos, sprout, germ]
