Kick Your Apps, Inc., has announced the release of the first member of their Dental Demo Suite package of "apps" for iPad. Named DDS GP, this app is designed to be used by dentists, hygienists, and other dental professionals to increase case acceptance through better patient understanding of their conditions and treatment. DDS GP is the next step in chairside patient consultation. It includes demonstrations of more than 140 diagnoses and procedures, with updates and new demonstrations added regularly. Each demo consists of a series of beautifully rendered drawings, which "come alive" at the touch of a finger. To use DDS GP in the office, an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch is required, but the developer suggests an iPad is best for chairside use. The app is available for download in the iTunes store.

CareCredit is offering a free educational audio CD, "Stress Less and Produce More," featuring Sandy Pardue, director of consulting with Classic Practice Resources. During this 60-minute audio program, Pardue discusses the three key practice issues that create chaos and stress for the team, including open time in the schedule, patient retention, and low case acceptance. Drawing from her hands-on experience, Pardue explains how to minimize gaps in your schedule, uncover patients' hidden concerns, ways to improve patient retention, and why it's important that patients always finish their appointment by setting their next appointment with the practice.

This product is made in the United States and developed by Subhash Gupta, DDS. For more information, visit CIRCLE 103 ON CARD
Zila has introduced an angled exam mirror as part of the ViziLite® Plus oral lesion identification and marking system.

With the release of the new angled exam mirror, Zila hopes to not only improve the rate of early detection of oral lesions, but also to underscore the importance of annual oral cancer screenings, especially for at-risk patients.

QED Medical introduces the ALOS-TTL through the lens video headlight system now available to the dental market exclusively through High Q Dental.

The system's new "pin-hole" lens technology allows the ALOS-TTL to deliver exceptional depth of field to facilitate operator motion without the risk of drifting out of focus, while the CCD chip provides exceptional image resolution.

LeoneAmerica introduces the new F1000 passive self-ligating bracket. It is easy to open and close, has versatile biomechanics, and is more comfortable for the patient. F1000 brackets are designed to meet the most sophisticated biomechanical requirements and permit easy clinical management without facing the known inconveniences of the other self-ligating systems. F1000 brackets provide all the advantages of the most recent clinical scientific research on low friction and the application of light forces to reduce treatment time for greater comfort and satisfaction of the patient. F1000 brackets are available with torque and angulation values according to Dr. Damon's standard prescription. For more information, visit CIRCLE 106 ON CARD
Pulpdent Corporation has introduced Tuff-Temp™ Provisional Glaze, which is designed to glaze and protect provisional crowns and bridges. It improves aesthetics and increases resistance to surface wear and staining. Tuff-Temp Provisional Glaze can be cured with all lights and is part of the new Tuff-Temp™ Provisional Veneer Crown & Bridge Resin system, a new rubberized-urethane provisional material available only from Pulpdent. Tuff-Temp's rubberized-urethane chemistry provides greater strength and dimensional stability, and a tighter-fitting provisional restoration than bisacrylics and acrylics.

Zila has introduced the Rotadent® Plus rotary toothbrush. New features of the Rotadent Plus include three speeds, brushing timer and charging base. The new model retains the clinically proven features of the classic Rotadent – a unique 360-degree sweeping action brush head with ultra-thin microfilaments, and a limited lifetime warranty. In a continuation of a published 10-year study of the Rotadent rotary powered toothbrush, Dr. Herbert Bader from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine stated that "patients who used the Rotadent ultimately showed an 80% improvement in oral hygiene recare compared to patients who used only a manual or conventional power toothbrush."
