Editorial Board – April 5, 2017

Two company presentations today for products Dental Advisor will be evaluating.  Introducing PerioRinse, a topical oral anesthetic, was Centura Pharmaceuticals.

A team from 3M also visited today and introduced Filtek One Bulk Fill and LAVA Esthetic.  Dental Advisor looks forward to collaborating with Apex Dental Milling in product evaluations and providing valuable feedback to 3M.

Our community support efforts these past few months had members of the Editorial Board contributing toiletries (all those little bottles from travels).  Over 100 items were collected and our wonderful volunteer, Gretchen Farah, sorted and bagged all the goodies to bring to a local homeless shelter. Thank you, Gretchen, and the entire team at Dental Advisor for continuing to support many organizations in our communities.
