cementoblast

 [se-men´to-blast]
a large cuboidal cell, found between fibers on the surface of cementum, which is active in the formation of cementum.

cementoblast (səmen´tōblast),

n the cell that forms the organic matrix of cementum. Derived from the inner aspect of the dental sac during the initial formation of cementum or from the mesenchymal cell of the periodontal membrane after completion of primary cementogenesis. The cementoblast, trapped within cellular cementum, becomes a cementocyte.
