Since the purchase of this Beatle molar the the press has been following various projects including a DNA pendant, a UK charity tour to promote awareness of mouth cancer, promotion of the book 'Confessions of a Former Cosmetic Dentist, DNA sequencing and the potential of finding lost Love children and a theoretical look at cloning and what it could mean for the Lennon estate if John Lennon returned. Lawyers could argue a genetic clone or even someone with sequence inserted into their genome could deserve a share in the fortune. From Guinness Records, Rolling Stone, Time Magazine, Anderson Cooper, Bill O'Reilly, Jay Leno, Ripley's Believe it or Not, and even Dr. Howard Farran...this dental story keeps buzzing.

The tooth is now looking to help people who strongly believe they may be the offspring of this famous Beatle. Contact the dentist through his Facebook page 'Michael Zuk DDS' (currently having technical difficulties which could be resolved in a few weeks).
April 2022- Nearly a decade after the purchase, Dr. Zuk is contacted told the tooth's DNA is a UK family's 'last hope' for finding out the truth. The astonishing story of a baby Beatle born out of wedlock is checked for credibility and based on details negotiations have begun finalizing the terms and steps necessary to verify a DNA match. This historic investigation could reveal a new bloodline and heir to the family name- opening the doors to a new adventure which is long overdue.
The next steps in the DNA adventure will be announced at a later date. If you have credible reasons why you or a family member may be the unrecognized offspring of John Lennon -and are willing to pay for advanced DNA tests and a portion of a claim to the estate for legal and processing fees- contact the doctor on his Facebook page.
