In the April edition of Inside Dentistry I had an article published about a new composite resin technology. The folks at Septodont are using new resin chemistry to create a composite that has some very interesting physical properties and future potential.
This has been a fun one to research as it potentially a big breakthru in composite chemisty…..and Septodont’s restorative materials facility is right here in Colorado. So it’s been fun to work with a local company!

Last Monday I spent the day at the South Bend offices of Heraeus.
We discussed their ideas of improving the level of continuing education to several of us who travel extensively teaching.
The idea is to bring effective teaching ideas to dentists.
Heraeus is making efforts to create an esthetically focused line of materials that you may have seen marketed under the “Venus” brand.
Venus can refer to their porcelain and/or composite materials. Both materials have excellent physical properties and are highly esthetic. The teaching concept is to teach dentists great materials with predicatable techniques.
I envision this to be an excellent program to help dentists improve their final results in direct bonding, porcelain veneers, and posterior esthetics. I’m looking forward to working with Heraeus to help other dentists improve their cosmetic dentistry.
