We got our hands on a demo ADS aerosol collector, and because we’re curious about real world applications for dental equipment, we do some visual tests to see how effective it is at processing air contaminants. With a fog machine and a little spare dental tubing, we set up a test operator to see how much air we can move away from what would be a patient’s mouth. Due to limited time with the demo unit, we couldn’t dive too deeply into our testing, but the current results are eyeopening. Take a look at what we found!

Due to several requests, we’ve put together a quick breakdown on the features of the Midmark LED dental operatory light.

Complement the way you work.

Identify shades, see details, and evaluate tissues with a true, reduced-shadow, energy-efficient white light. The ergonomic design offers complete control, with pull, tilt, and twist options, as well as easy access to the touchpad.

Touchpad Controls

Conveniently select from three light intensities in operate mode, or easily switch to composite mode for filtered light that prevents premature curing, all from an easily accessible touchpad.

Auto On/Off

When the Automatic On/Off function is being utilized, you can turn the light on by pulling the light down, and turn it off by pushing the light back up, saving energy and expense.

Bright White Light

Choose from three light intensities: 15,000 lux; 21,000 lux; or 27,000 lux.

Available in the following mounting configurations:

Midmark Elevance or Ultra LR

Midmark Elevance or Ultra Console

Track Light or Track Light with Monitor

Ceiling, cabinet or universal

We’re back with Alexander Bischoff again with more information regarding the new amalgam legislation compliance requirements, and this time we talk about line cleaners for your dental vacuum system. There are many products out there on the market. Some work, others don’t. Some comply with the new rules going into effect, and others do not. We break down the different types of cleaners, and which ones we have found to be the most effective at keeping suction systems running efficiently.

In this podcast, Chris Mourlot, who represents ADS, joins us to discuss our newly available extra oral aresol collection unit. This machine has been available and in wide use in Europe and Asia for several years, and due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it has not only become more relevant within the world of infection control, but has also gone through a spike in popularity across the United States. Aresol collection devices are being manufactured all over the world as a tool to combat the pandemic, but not all are being created equally, and we get into the details of what makes the ADS unit stand apart from the rest. 

There are a lot of things to consider about your practice when getting back into the swing of things post-Covid pandemic, so we’re here to help! This will be the first video installment of many to help guide you in reopening your office in a safe manner. Today we’ll be discussing water treatment options for your delivery systems through Sterisil’s filtration products.
