Knowledge - Seek it, Learn it, Apply it!

One great aspect of my job is evaluating products before they become available on the market. Not every product evaluated goes to final production - prohibiting me from sharing something I often think is stellar or practice changing.
Believe me when I say I am smiling just writing about this next "coming soon" educational, motivational and down right fun tool for dental professioinals. GC Tri Plaque ID Gel™ goes above and beyond ordinary disclosing solution for a number of reasons.
In the past, most patients have not especially enjoyed disclosing and I have reserved the procedure most often for the 5-14 age range. After using the GC Tri Plaque ID Gel™ for a time on all ages, a few adults have actually requested disclosing to evaluate their changed oral care habits.
Usually my excitement for new products or technology revolves around something big or appealing to my geeky side. GC Tri Plaque ID Gel™ is not flashy or digital. It will not take up space in your operatory or require additional appointment time. It will change how home care instruction is received and perceived. Personal responsibility for plaque control lies mainly with the patient and this product allows for easy evaluation of just how efficiently home care is being performed.
Coming in October 2011! Ask your dentist, dental hygienist or GC America Inc. representative when you can get your own tube.
