INSTRUMENT RESHARPENING PROGRAM by PDT
PDT, Inc., which produces dental instruments such as the Montana Jack,
Queen of Hearts, and Jack B. Nimble Slim, recently launched a new instrument resharpening program. The program allows clinicians to send
hand instruments to PDT’s master craftspeople to evaluate and restore to
original sharpness. Regardless of manufacturer, instruments can be sent
to PDT for resharpening, and clinicians are only charged for those that
can be resharpened. Instruments that can no longer safely be restored can be recycled with PDT through their Earthcare program.

AUTOMATED FLOSS DISPENSER by Flosstime
Flosstime is a device that fastens to bathroom mirrors, and it notifes users when it is time to foss,
automatically dispensing foss at the push of a button. The circular device dispenses the American
Dental Association-recommended 18 inches of foss, cuts it, and sets a 90-second LED-timer that
moves around the device. After 90-seconds, Flosstime will light up with a smile as a reward for a
job well done. After a 22-hour period of inactivity, an orange frown reminds the user that it is time to
foss again. If unused after seven days, the device will automatically shoot out a length of foss. The
device can be set to single and dual-user modes. Flosstime comes with a replaceable cartridge, which should last the daily fosser
approximately three to four months.
