Colgate® Launches “Science to Cities” Educational Tour

Colgate Enlists Industry Thought Leaders to Present New Perspectives on Evidence-Based Dentistry via a 3 CE Accredited Five-City Educational Tour

New York, NY – October 29, 2014 – Colgate®, the global leader in oral care, is pleased to announce the launch of “Science to Cities”, a five-city educational lecture tour led by key industry thought leaders who will present the latest perspectives on evidence-based dentistry.
Entitled, “New Perspectives on Evidence-Based Dentistry,” the lectures will offer timely, applicable and educational information featuring new approaches to the practical application of evidence-based dentistry in clinical practice. 
Each lecture will discuss the gum disease epidemic among the U.S. population while helping dental professionals make informed evidence-based recommendations for patient home care of both natural teeth and implants. In addition, the technology behind dentifrice containing triclosan/copolymer will be reviewed in detail along with the mode of action, clinical benefits
and safety.
Participants will learn:
•    New advances in periodontology and evidence-based management of disease including treatment protocols
•    How evidence-based dentistry can be used in clinical practice to make decisions for patient care
•    The fundamentals of systematic reviews – how to interpret results and the role these reviews play in evidence-based dentistry
•    New insights on implant maintenance and the role of triclosan with respect to inflammation
•    A review of the safety and efficacy of triclosan for use in Colgate Total® toothpaste

“Almost half of American adults have periodontal disease and far too many are living with chronic gingivitis and inflammation,” remarked Dr. Barbara Shearer, Director of Scientific Affairs for Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals. “As part of our efforts to decrease these concerning statistics, Colgate is committed to providing timely, relevant information to the industry in order to increase successful patient outcomes. We are happy to provide this educational tour which spans the nation so that dental professionals have access to these informative lectures and can apply this newfound knowledge to their daily practices immediately.”


Colgate has enlisted an impressive lineup of distinguished key thought leaders for the presentations. Dates, locations and speakers are as follows:
•    Boston – November 19th – John Comisi, DDS JoAnn Gurenlian, RDH, PhD
•    Atlanta – November 21st – Angelo Mariotti, DDS Ann Eshenaur Spolarich, RDH, PhD
•    San Francisco – December 3rd – Angelo Mariotti, DDS JoAnn Gurenlian, RDH, PhD
•    Houston – December 5th – Angelo Mariotti, DDS JoAnn Gurenlian, RDH, PhD

RealSeal R.I.P.

I recently received a letter form SybronEndo informing me that that have decide to end of life the RealSeal product line at the endo of 2014. RealSeal was the Resilon product that SybronEndo bought Pentron for a few years ago. RealSeal was a bonded sealer and points system that were bonded together to seal the root canal system.

So for those RealSeal users its time to either order as much as you can now or revert back to traditional sealer and gutta percha to finish your endo cases.

Huge fake dental equipment haul

The products, ranging from drills to X-rays, were counterfeit copies of major brands or sub-standard with fake documentation.

Some products appeared to have official safety CE marks, but importers said it meant “Chinese export”.

The regulator said that dentists could be prosecuted if they knowingly bought equipment that put patients at risk.

The items were discovered during an investigation by the
Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA), which is responsible
for making sure that dental equipment in the UK meets safety standards.

Among the items seized on arrival in the UK were poorly made
dentist power drills and handheld X-ray machines with dangerous wiring.
