  • Ultradent, Inc. Partners with Crown Council’s Smiles for Life Foundation with Opalescence Whitening Products

    January 30, 2014 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. has partnered with the Crown Council in support of their annual 120-day Smiles for Life Foundation campaign, which encourages patients to “whiten [their] teeth and help a child.” The 2014 campaign will run from March 1 through June 30. During the campaign, approximately 1,000 participating Crown Council dentists throughout the U.S. and Canada will donate 100% of the proceeds from any teeth whitening procedure performed, toward helping children in their local communities and throughout the world. Ultradent has pledged to support the Smiles for Life Foundation by donating Opalescence whitening products to fulfill 100% of the campaign’s tooth whitening needs.


    The Smiles for Life Foundation is the official public children’s charity of the Crown Council. After patients receive their professional tooth whitening treatment from a participating Crown Council dentist, 50% of the appointment’s proceeds is contributed to a local children’s charity chosen by the dentist performing the treatment, and the other 50% benefits other national or worldwide children’s charities selected by the Smiles for Life Foundation. The Crown Council is a prestigious alliance of leading, cutting-edge dentists around the world who are strongly committed to excellence in their fields, continuing education, serving their communities through charitable work, and focusing on treating the patients—not just their teeth. The Council’s patient-centered approach seamlessly aligns with Ultradent’s foundational approach to minimally invasive, caring, patient-centered dentistry.


    Ultradent is known as the "tooth whitening company,” thanks to its world-renowned brand of Opalescence tooth whitening products. The extensive Opalescence product family includes take-home, syringe-delivered tooth whitening gels, as well as Opalescence Go, the brand’s newest prefilled hydrogen peroxide on-the-go whitening system. Opalescence Boost is Opalescence’s powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide in-office chairside whitening treatment, which offers instant results. Most of Opalescence tooth whitening products include potassium nitrate and fluoride. Opalescence tooth whiteners come in sensitivity-reducing formulas, and products are available in Mint, Melon, Peach, and Regular flavors.

  • Ultradent Raises Over 350,000 lbs. of Food for Utah Food Bank & Typhoon Haiyan Victims

    December 5, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc. set a new record for its annual “Hunger Games”–themed food drive this year, raising 352,088 lbs. of food for the Utah Food Bank and Typhoon Haiyan victims through AmeriCares. Ultradent set its 2013 goal at 200,000 lbs. of food. The donation translates to $87,659 in total, and over $43,000 for each organization. Each year, Ultradent employees have consistently increased the amount of food/money raised during its annual food drive, and this year is no exception, as Ultradent increased its donation amount by 65%. (Ultradent raised 208,000 lbs. of food during its 2012 food drive, and 85,000 lbs. of food in 2011).


    Donations for Ultradent’s 2013 food drive were raised through numerous opportunity drawings, bake sales, and a “Food Truck Friday” event, organized by company employees. All funds/food donations were collected over an 11-day period, from November 5–November 11. Ultradent presented a check for $43,835 to the CEO of the Utah Food Bank on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, and will present the other half of funds raised to AmeriCares later this month. Dr. Fischer, Ultradent’s president and CEO, attributes his enthusiasm for the food drive to lessons he learned as a young boy. He says, “My grandfather taught me as a young boy that it is only with an open hand that one has the ability to receive.”

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc. will break ground on a planned 80,000-square-foot expansion of its South Jordan, Utah, campus on Monday, November 18, 2013, at 2:00pm. The ceremony will take place at 10075 South 500 West. The new addition will house a state-of-the-art medical molding facility, expanding upon Ultradent’s already-extensive manufacturing areas. In fact, Ultradent, founded by president and CEO Dr. Dan Fischer in 1978, is not only known as the most vertically integrated dental company in the world, but it also houses more robotics than any other establishment west of the Mississippi River, save the automobile industry. Ultradent proudly manufactures 95% of its products in the USA (on its South Jordan campus), providing jobs to over 1,000 employees right here in Utah.


    Mayor Scott L. Osborne of South Jordan, Utah, will speak at the groundbreaking ceremony, as well as Ultradent president and CEO, Dr. Dan Fischer. Other city officials and company representatives will also attend the ceremony to participate in helping to break ground for the new building. In addition to the large medical molding space, the planned extension will also allow expansion for Ultradent’s operations team, as well as additional warehousing space.

    November 11, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc. will hold its 8th annual “Hunger Games”–themed food drive from November 11–November 21, 2013. Throughout the 2-week event, Ultradent employees will host numerous activities and fundraisers to collect donations for the Utah Food Bank.

Since 2009, when Ultradent raised 18,651 lbs. of food, Ultradent has consistently lead the state year after year in pounds of food donated. Last year, Ultradent set its highest goal yet—100,000 lbs. of food—and ended up raising a total of 208,169 lbs. of food for the Utah Food Bank! To top it off, Ultradent also raised an additional $26,784 to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy through AmeriCares. Jeannie continues, “Help Ultradent fight the ‘Hunger Games’ by ‘Catching Fire’ from last year’s accomplishments. Sparks are going to fly!” 


     

    Ultradent’s “Hunger Games” Food Drive Activities Include:

    • Ultradent will hold a pre-kickoff fundraiser, “Food Truck Friday,” on November 8 from 10:00 a.m.–2:00pm where Waffle Love, Submarinos, Fiore’s Wood Fired Pizza, and 3 Brother’s Tacos will be open for business.

  • Announcing VALO® Colors–Experience Ultradent’s Award Winning Curing Light in Color

    October 31, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc. will unveil several exciting new color options for VALO Cordless, its award-winning curing light, at the upcoming American Dental Association Meeting in New Orleans. Choose from colors Graphite, Gold, Fuchsia, and Teal, available in limited quantities while supplies last.


    Since its introduction to the market in 2009, VALO has proven to be the most powerful light on the market, thanks to its multiwavelength light-emitting diode (LED) that delivers irradiance from 395–480nm. VALO’s optimally collimated beam is capable of polymerizing any dental material, including porcelain and underlying resins. The ergonomic design of VALO’s wand-style body and large footprint of the curing head provide unprecedented access to the oral cavity that other curing lights simply cannot reach. Precision milled from a solid bar of high-grade aircraft aluminum, VALO’s unique unibody construction ensures unsurpassed durability. Like the original VALO Cordless, VALO Colors comes with easy-to-replace, rechargeable batteries and a battery charger. VALO has the rare distinction of having recently received The Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award for the second consecutive year. VALO has also received numerous other prestigious industry awards and accolades, including several 5-Star Reality Awards.


    To see the vivid possibilities of VALO Colors, visit Ultradent Booth #3019 at ADA in New Orleans. Trade show attendees will receive 15% off any Ultradent purchase. To learn more, please call us at 800-552-5512 or visit ultradent.com.

  • Triodent Introduces V4 Ring Multi-Packs

    October 25, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Triodent and Ultradent Products, Inc. are pleased to announce the availability of the V4 ring, for purchase in multi-packs of two and three. The new packaging options allows clinicians who already own Triodent’s recently launched, revolutionary V4 ClearMetal Matrix™ system the convenience of replacing and replenishing the V4 rings, as necessary. The multi-packs also give the clinician unprecedented value, with the V4 Ring 3 Pack offering the lowest price-per-ring available. The V4 Ring Multi-Pack options include a Mixed 2 Pack, which includes a molar and pre-molar ring; a Pre-Molar 2 Pack; a Molar 2 Pack; and a V4 Ring 3 Pack, which comes with two molar and one pre-molar ring.


    Launched in July, the V4 Ring™ offers superior grip over the full range of embrasure and Class II cavity shapes and sizes. It performs especially well on large restorations, gripping even on severely compromised teeth, and the ring tines are transparent for light transmission. The matrix ring is also extremely durable and is easier to clean than other rings.


    The V4 ClearMetal Matrix System, featuring the ClearMetal Matrix™ with “micro-windows,” is the only transparent matrix with the advantages of metal malleability. Hundreds of microscopic resin-filled windows allow light to pass through the stainless steel, so curing composite in a Class II restoration can be initiated laterally and interproximally, as well as occlusally, while leaving no imprint on the composite. The system’s transparent V4 Wedge™ facilitates outstanding matrix retention and adaptation, and a perfect seal on the matrix at the gingival margin.


    Ultradent is Triodent’s exclusive dealer in the United States. To learn more about, or purchase the V4 Ring in one of the multi-pack options, call 800-552-5512 or visit ultradent.com.

  • Introducing ExperTemp™—A New Temporary Crown & Bridge Material

    September 20, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. introduces ExperTemp, a new temporary crown and bridge material that maintains both the function and esthetics of natural dentition. ExperTemp can also be used to fabricate inlays, onlays, and long-term temporaries that closely resemble the final restoration.

  • ISO Adopts Ultradent’s Notched Edge Testing Method

    September 4, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently adopted Ultradent Products Inc.’s notched-edge shear bond strength testing method as a new standard. Ultradent created, refined, and has taught the notched-edge testing method over a number of years, resulting in a reproducible technique that many research organizations across the globe use today. After conducting a rigorous study involving over 20 independent organizations, ISO determined the notched-edge method superior to other shear bond strength testing methods previously available.


    ISO Standard 29022 specifies a shear test method used to determine the adhesive bond strength between direct dental restorative materials and tooth structure, such as dentin or enamel. The method is principally intended for adhesives and includes substrate selection, storage and handling of tooth structure, as well as the procedure for testing. A key element within the testing is a notched-edge crosshead used to shear the bonded specimen with an even distribution of force. Testing results are more accurate with a notched contact because they will closely approximate adhesive shear strength, rather than peel strength produced by using a straight contact.


    The ISO develops and publishes international standards to ensure that products and services are safe, high quality, and reliable. ISO protocol is employed by many organizations worldwide such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), who often grant approval only to products that pass ISO’s meticulous testing standards.


     

    For more information on the notched-edge shear bond strength test, visit the ISO website at iso.org, or see the attached PDF document. For details regarding Ultradent’s UltraTester, which uses the notched-edge method, please visit ultradent.com/ultratester, or call 800-552-5512.

  • VALO Awarded the Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award for Second Consecutive Year

    August 8, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, UT

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc., a global manufacturer and distributor of dental materials and equipment, received The Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award for VALO, Ultradent’s curing light, for the second consecutive year. The award is the highest honor for innovation in dental curing lights. Each product honored as “Best of Class” features unique characteristics that differentiate it from the competition in a compelling way and, more importantly, creates value for the general dentist.


    “VALO’s unmatched durability and uniquely powerful and collimated beam offers clinicians benefits that no other curing light can. The broad-spectrum output delivers irradiance from 395–480nm with an evenly distributed footprint and higher levels of power at a distance—which means better curing, regardless of material or technique,” said Suzanne Wilson, the senior brand manager at Ultradent. “VALO’s ease of use and low-profile design also truly differentiates it from the competition.”


    “Our evaluators determined that VALO is still the most advanced curing light on the market, and this is why  VALO was selected as the winner of The Pride Institute’s ‘Best of Class’ Technology Award for the second year in a row. This is extremely difficult to achieve based on how rigorous the selection process is —which speaks to the progressive nature of VALO’s technology,” said Dr. Lou Shuman, president of The Pride Institute.


    The panel that selects the “Best of Class” winners consists of seven dentists with significant knowledge of and experience in dental technology, including Dr. Shuman; John Flucke, DDS, writer, speaker and technology editor for Dental Products Report; Paul Feuerstein, DMD, writer, speaker and technology editor for Dental Economics; Titus Schleyer, DMD, PhD, associate professor and director of the Center for Dental Informatics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine; Marty Jablow, DMD, technology writer and consultant for Dr. Bicuspid; Parag Kachalia, DDS, vice chair of preclinical education research and technology at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry; and Larry Emmott, DDS, technology writer, speaker and dental marketing consultant.


    VALO will be showcased at the “Tech Expo” at the American Dental Association’s annual meeting from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3 in New Orleans.


    To learn more about VALO by Ultradent Products, Inc., please call 800-552-5512, or visit www.valo-led.com.

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. Celebrates 35th Anniversary

    July 9, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Later this month, Ultradent Products, Inc. will mark its 35th anniversary as a family-owned, international dental supply and manufacturing company. The company will celebrate its growth from a family-run, grassroots small business to the international industry leader it is today with a week’s worth of celebrations, which will include an employee picnic, game day, video presentation, and family movie night. Dr. Fischer will also speak at the kick-off event, reminiscing about Ultradent’s more than three decades in business.


    After graduation from Loma Linda University and beginning his own practice, Dr. Dan Fischer invented and patented his groundbreaking hemostatic solution, Astringedent, in 1976 as an answer to the need for a tissue management product that achieved more rapid, profound hemostasis. His desire to market his invention and to continue to develop more advanced dental solutions led him to found Ultradent Products, Inc. in 1979—setting the pace for a succession of products that today, includes a wide range of innovative dental materials.


    Business grew rapidly, and Ultradent expanded from a family-only home operation to its current 310,000-square-foot, two-building facility in South Jordan, Utah—a facility that presently houses more than 1,000 employees. The company has also garnered a strong international presence, operating nine offices and distribution centers worldwide, including subsidiaries in Europe, Asia, and South America.


    Ultradent currently researches, designs, manufactures, and packages more than 500 materials, devices, and instruments used by dentists around the world, including its renowned, industry-leading Opalescence tooth whitening system. Ultradent’s product family also includes the award-winning VALO curing light, UltraSeal XT hydro, Ultra-Etch, and the company’s newly released laser-sintered, highly esthetic composite veneer system: Edelweiss.


    Beyond the dental community, Ultradent donates products to humanitarian efforts locally, nationally, and internationally. Additionally, Ultradent sponsors a nonprofit organization, the Diversity Foundation, a progressive outreach program committed to preventing hate crimes and intolerance. The program promotes diversity and fosters multicultural awareness among individuals from all backgrounds.

  • Triodent Announces V4 ClearMetal Matrix System™

    July 1, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Triodent and Ultradent Products, Inc. are delighted to introduce the V4 ClearMetal Matrix System™, featuring the ClearMetal Matrix™ with “micro-windows.” ClearMetal is the only transparent matrix with the advantages of metal malleability. Hundreds of microscopic resin-filled windows allow light to pass through the stainless steel, so curing composite in a Class II restoration can be initiated laterally and interproximally, as well as occlusally, while leaving no imprint on the composite.

     

    The V4 System creates natural contours with ease, and the added benefit of ring, matrix, and wedge transparency makes it a great match for bulk fill resins and deep cavities, giving the dentist peace of mind that the composite is sufficiently cured before the matrix is removed.

     

    A smart feature of the ClearMetal Matrix is that the micro-windows act like a “ramp cure,” where light intensity is increased gradually to reduce initial stress and optimize polymerization. Of course, once the matrix has been removed, the composite can be given a final cure.

     

    The V4 System also includes a new V4 Ring™, which has superior grip over the full range of embrasure and Class II cavity shapes and sizes. It performs especially well on large restorations, gripping even on severely compromised teeth, and the ring tines are transparent for light transmission. The matrix ring, which comes in molar and premolar sizes, is also extremely durable and easier to clean than other rings.

     

    Completing the system is the transparent V4 Wedge™. The wedge, though very small, is packed with unique features that facilitate outstanding matrix retention and adaptation, and a perfect seal on the matrix at the gingival margin.

     

    Triodent has a proud dental manufacturing history, led by the multi-award-winning V3 Sectional Matrix System.

     

    Triodent founder and CEO Dr. Simon McDonald says the launch of the V4 is exciting, not least because of the breakthrough technology featured in the matrix, and the innovations in the wedge.

     

    “It’s a fantastic thrill bringing a new product to market,” Dr McDonald says. “We always knew we were on a winner with V3 but it was humbling that dentists embraced it in the way they did. I’m confident the V4 will get the same reaction—it’s such a clever system.

     

    “Making the dentist’s job easier is always our primary aim in developing products, and we’ve done it again with V4. This is a product for bulk fill and traditional composite users. And whether they feel it’s necessary or not, dentists will find the cure-through option irresistible.”

     

    Initial reaction to V4 has been extremely positive. Leading dental educator Dr. John Comisi describes it as a “terrific device.”

     

    “Once again Triodent has made a major leap forward in improving the restorative process,” he says.

     

    V4 is available initially only in the United States, through Triodent’s exclusive U.S. dealer, Ultradent Products Inc., before being rolled out globally.

     

    The solution is clear – V4.

  • Utah-Europe Days Committee Recognizes Dr. Dan Fischer As "International Man of the Year"

    May 15, 2013 South Jordan, Utah

    ​The Utah-Europe Days Committee, sponsored in part by the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development, recognized Dr. Dan Fischer of Ultradent Products, Inc. as “International Man of the Year” for his contributions to sustaining economic and cultural relations between the state of Utah and the European Union. The reception honoring Dr. Fischer took place at the Zion’s Bank headquarters in Salt Lake City on May 9—known internationally as “Europe Day.”

     

    The descendent of a Danish immigrant who came to the U.S. via Ellis Island in 1920, Dr. Fischer credits the core values—among them “hard work”—instilled in him by his grandfather for his personal and professional success. Dr. Fischer founded Ultradent Products, Inc. in 1978 as a family-owned dental company in South Jordan, Utah. The company has since expanded to operating nine offices internationally, including offices in Germany and Italy, with distributors in Spain, France, and Portugal. Dr. Fischer credits many of his European colleagues with Ultradent’s international success in helping establish the company’s lines of distribution throughout the world.

     

    “Ultradent exports about 70% of what we make beyond U.S. borders, for which we’re very proud,” Dr. Fischer said at the event. “Some of my best friends in the world are Europeans—whom I must thank for having taught me so much.”

     

    French foreign minister, Robert Schuman, declared May 9 as “Europe Day” in 1949 as a celebration of peace and unity throughout the European Union. The Utah-Europe Days events are designed to help Utahans better understand one of the most dynamic epicenters of politics, economics, and business in the world.

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. CEO Dr. Dan Fischer Announces Erwin Fischer as Executive Vice President and Points the Direction for Future Generations.

    October 9, 2012 SOUTH JORDAN, UTAH

    Ultradent Products, Inc. announced the promotion of Erwin Fischer to executive vice president. As executive vice president, Erwin will work closely with Dr. Dan Fischer, president and CEO of Ultradent, to continue to build upon the company’s vision to improve oral health globally. Dr. Fischer stated: “Erwin has proven himself loyal, caring, and hard working. He lives all our core values in quality ways.”   

    “Ultradent started as a family business that has developed into an extended family of over 1,100 employees,” said Dr. Fischer. “Contrary to the common evolution of many businesses, particularly in the United States, it is my intent that Ultradent continue as a private family company for generations to come. I believe this translates into significant benefits to our customers and our employees. Erwin’s new role, combined with our goal to not sell the company or go public, enables us to chart our own course for the future and contribute to the current and future economic health of America as well as that of other countries.”

    Erwin has been with Ultradent from its inception—even prior to its incorporation in 1978. For the last six years, he has served as the vice president of information technology. Erwin’s notable achievements include management of two major ERP implementations, certification as an Oracle DBA Master, experience as an Oracle developer and business analyst, five years with Vistage Key Executive Group, and various other IT certifications. These accomplishments have coincided with Erwin’s managerial role in the development of a talented team of IT experts, the implementation of ITIL best practices in Ultradent’s IT department, and certification via the Kellogg School of Management to help strengthen Ultradent’s best practices. Erwin has also been a core team member of Ultradent’s strategic leadership group.  

    “It’s been a great privilege for me to work with so many incredible people in seeing that our corporate vision is realized,” said Erwin. “Our commitment to dentistry and its ability to help humans everywhere is very much ‘in our blood.’ I want to see Ultradent continue to grow and succeed for many generations to come.”

Ultradent has always maintained a BPA-free manufacturing requirement for its dental sealants (UltraSeal XT® plus and UltraSeal XT® hydro).  

    “Ultradent does not use, nor do we plan to ever use bisphenol A dimethacrylate (the primary precursor resin to BPA when used in dental materials) in any of our resin dental products,” said Dr. Dan Fischer, President/CEO of Ultradent Products, Inc. “Furthermore, we use the purest form of Bis-GMA resin available for our Bis-GMA-based products. Using highly sensitive analytic equipment, not even a trace of BPA can be detected.” 

    Ultradent recently launched a website dedicated to BPA education. The website, www.ultrasealxt.com, is the host for frequently asked questions about bisphenol A (BPA) and its use in dental sealants. The tool is equipped with varied media, including podcasts, a children’s development corner, and information specific to Ultradent’s award-winning UltraSeal XT plus.

  • ​Manufacturer of the industry-leading dental sealant UltraSeal XT plus, Ultradent introduces UltraSeal XT hydro, a hydrophilic pit and fissure sealant

    July 16, 2012 SOUTH JORDAN, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc., introduces UltraSeal XT® hydro, a new sealant with a hydrophilic chemistry. UltraSeal XT hydro incorporates advanced adhesive technology and fluorescent properties to offer exceptional, patient-centered results.

    Based on the proven, award-winning chemistry of UltraSeal XT plus, UltraSeal XT hydro’s hydrophilic properties eliminate the need for the clinician to pretreat the tooth with a drying agent, allowing for faster treatments without compromising quality results. It also fluoresces under a black light, making it easy to check retention at the time of placement and at subsequent visits. UltraSeal XT hydro’s advanced adhesive technology securely bonds to enamel, increasing marginal retention and reducing microleakage, resulting in fewer patients who need sealants re-placed.

    UltraSeal XT hydro maintains the always-BPA-free chemistry that UltraSeal XT plus has been recognized for. It is available in Natural and Opaque White shades and is easily delivered with a syringe and the Inspiral® Brush tip.

  • Ultradent Introduces Edelweiss

    May 2, 2012 Salt Lake City, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. plans to launch Edelweiss, a uniquely engineered composite veneer system, at the California Dental Association Session in Anaheim this week. Attendees of the session will get a first glimpse at the low-cost, esthetic alternative to custom lab veneers.

    Each composite veneer in the Edelweiss system is laser sintered, combining a high-gloss, uniform surface with a thermally tempered base. This unique manufacturing technology makes Edelweiss veneers harder than other composite veneers, resulting in greater resistance to scratching and wear.

    Ultradent intends Edelweiss as a solution for those seeking a lower-cost alternative to custom lab veneers, unlocking the opportunity for dentists to offer esthetic smiles to more patients. With no need for lab work or separate appointments for consultations, impressions, temporary seatings and permanent restorations, Edelweiss allows patients to get a natural-looking, long-lasting smile in just one appointment. Edelweiss composite veneers are available in an assortment of sizes, requiring minimal adaptation and tooth preparation.

    Ultradent will showcase Edelweiss at the CDA Annual Session along with the Triodent V3 system and the VALO Cordless curing light. For more information, follow our tweets (#CDAUltradent) or stop by our booth (#450).

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. Expands its Line of Innovative Cements

    February 21, 2012 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. will introduce three new cements at the Chicago Midwinter Meeting this week. UltraCem™ Resin-Reinforced Glass Ionomer, PermaShade™ LC and UltraTemp REZ™ complete Ultradent’s current line of temporary and permanent cements.

    UltraCem™ Resin-Reinforced Glass Ionomer is the first liquid-powder RRGI cement to be mixed and delivered conveniently in a syringe. UltraCem offers the best of both worlds: efficient delivery and unsurpassed performance. Its advanced chemistry boasts the highest bond strengths in its category, while its unique SpeedMix™ syringe ensures the ultimate luting convenience. UltraCem is used for luting indirect restorations made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, resin to natural teeth and cementation of orthodontic bands to enamel.

    The most recent addition is PermaShade™ LC, a light-cured luting resin used exclusively for cementing veneers. With enduring color stability and low shrinkage, PermaShade LC is ideal for creating a long-lasting, esthetic smile. As with other Ultradent innovations, its ergonomic contra-angle syringe makes luting delicate veneers more convenient than standard delivery methods. And finally, Ultradent has added UltraTemp REZ™ for cementing of temporary crowns, onlays, and small temporary fillings. The cement is strong enough to withstand normal biting and chewing forces but can easily be removed.

    For more information on any of Ultradent’s new cements, please visit www.ultradent.com or call our customer service at 1-800-552-5512.

  • Ultradent’s Continuous Training Program Travels to Cambodia

    August 8, 2011 Siem Reap, Cambodia

    Last month, Ultradent Products, Inc. welcomed participants from all over Asia-Pacific to Cambodia to join in their successful “continuous training” certification program. Cambodia, with its present charms and extraordinary history, has had one of the best economic records in Asia for the last ten years. Cambodia’s story is not too unlike that of Ultradent’s which is full of accomplishments that rank against all odds. 


    The continuous training program was designed to build on the relationships and technical expertise of our partners to help them become more successful. Even though the program is only in its second year, Ultradent has seen a growing demand for its hands-on program which is “content rich and magical” in the words of trainers Karen Phillips and Steve Gerber. Karen and Steve, who together possess over 50 years dental experience, led the training with the motto “involve me and I will understand”. In this way, the reward of learning can be felt on both sides. Course participants leave with a true improvement in their clinical knowledge and a more confidant smile. 

    Even though the program provides an abundant amount of information, there is still fun to be had in the process. The Kool and the Gang song, “Celebration”, was the theme in introducing the much anticipated new VALO Cordless. And, with the words of Diana Ross, the participants declared “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” to illustrate their confidence upon completing the training. All participants received their certification after successfully completing the program and passing their exam. ​

  • Ultradent Introduces Fluoride Varnish with Mess-Free Delivery and its new SoftEZ™ tip

    July 1, 2011 South Jordan, UT

    ​Ultradent just released Flor-Opal Varnish White, a fluoride varnish with an innovative syringe and tip delivery system for fast, simple and mess-free application. The new system comes complete with Ultradent’s SoftEZ™ tip for a paintbrush-like application that applies an even coat of varnish from start to finish.

    Flor-Opal Varnish White features a unique syringe-to-syringe mixing system ensuring a consistent, even dose of fluoride is applied to each tooth. Individual syringes are packaged with a Luer Lock cap that is replaced with an empty syringe prior to application. Unlike traditional fluoride varnishes that use a “well” and brush system, the mixing process between syringes ensures a consistent application of fluoride with less mess and product waste.

    Flor-Opal Varnish White is delivered with Ultradent’s new SoftEZ tip, a tip with a unibody design that avoids fiber shedding and tip clogging. The bristles are integrated within the body of the tip providing a platform for an even coat of varnish. The syringe is also flexible, facilitating reach to difficult-to-access areas.

    The new Flor-Opal Varnish White is available in 40 packs of Bubblegum and Mint flavors. For more information, please contact Ultradent’s customer service at 1-800-552-5212.​

  • Ultradent Supports the Public Campaign for BPA Awareness

    October 1, 2010 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. supports the campaign for public awareness on exposure to bisphenol A (BPA). Although BPA is widely used in the manufacture of plastic materials and products, the long term effect of this monomer is still unknown. For this reason, Ultradent has supported a cautionary stance on the use of BPA in any form. 


    All of Ultradent’s resin-based products, including UltraSeal XT plus (a dental sealant), have been tested for the presence of BPA. “Ultradent never has and never will use Bisphenol‐A dimethacryalate (BPA) in any of our resin products including our ‘always BPA-free’ dental sealant, UltraSeal XT® plus”, said Dr. Dan Fischer, President/CEO of Ultradent Products, Inc. “To insure that we could offer a product that was free from the impurities of BPA, we used a third party laboratory to test the material components of UltraSeal XT plus, which resulted in a 0.00000% presence of the BPA or BPA derivatives.” 

    Dental sealants play a very important role in the prevention of tooth decay. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have determined that dental caries is among the most prevalent chronic diseases in young children (ages 5 to 17years)*. For this reason, Ultradent will continue its support for the application on dental sealants that are safe and free from BPA. 

    Ultradent will continue to advocate the study of BPA’s effect on oral health while maintaining the highest standard of evaluation of the materials used in UltraSeal XT plus and other resin-based dental products it manufactures. For more information, please feel free to contact Ultradent’s corporate headquarters at 801-553-4243 or email ida.baghoomian@ultradent.com.

  • ORAL HEALTH AMERICA ANNOUNCES NEW FALL FOR SMILES CAMPAIGN

    June 17, 2010 Chicago, IL

    Oral Health America (OHA) announces the launch of Fall for Smiles®, a public messaging campaign conducted in collaboration with Oral Healthcare Can’t Wait®, an initiative of the Dental Trade Alliance. The campaign begins in September to promote messages to consumers about the importance of self care, good nutrition, regular dental visits, and tobacco avoidance in maintaining oral health. 


    During the campaign, OHA will announce the results of a public opinion survey on consumers’ beliefs about oral health. Sponsored by Oral Healthcare Can’t Wait and Plackers dental flossers, the survey of more than 1,000 adults and more than 1,000 children asked questions about oral care habits and perceptions. Prior OHA surveys have shown that adults are unaware of the role that infectious bacteria play in tooth decay, and that time spent brushing teeth tends to diminish at nighttime and on weekends, suggesting that routines play a role in optimum oral care habits. 

    “The Fall for Smiles campaign is intended to bring the oral health community together to promote common messaging about what Americans can do to keep their mouths healthy,” said Beth Truett, President and CEO, Oral Health America. “We are excited about the strong interest we have from the public and private sectors in a messaging campaign in the third quarter that reminds consumers about the importance of oral care routines as families are heading back to school and back to work.” 

    Fall for Smiles will include outreach to dental care providers through a participation booklet and kit created by Patterson Dental. The campaign will also dedicate a week to the often-overlooked topic of oral health issues faced by mature adults and older Americans, an initiative being sponsored by Aspen Dental. A “Tobacco Free Week” will focus on the oral health risks of tobacco use. 

    “Oral Healthcare Can’t Wait shares a common purpose with OHA’s Fall for Smiles campaign—to increase dental patient awareness,” said Gary Price, CEO, Dental Trade Alliance. “Our members are encouraged by the collaborative nature of this effort, and the multiple opportunities for outreach to patient populations and opinion leaders throughout the country.” 

    Fall for Smiles is generously sponsored by Aspen Dental, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare, Oral Healthcare Can’t Wait, Patterson Dental, Plackers dental flossers, and Trident®. Fall for Smiles promotion partners (confirmed to date) include Aegis Communications, American Dental Hygienists’ Association, Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors, Belmont Publications, DentalEZ Group, DNTLworks Equipment Corporation, Harry J. Bosworth Company, Henry Schein Dental, Hispanic Dental Association, Lanmark, Smiles Change Lives, and Ultradent.

  • Endo-Eze® TiLOS™; A unique hybridization technology

    November 24, 2009 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. will be demonstrating a new Endodontic File System, TiLOS, at the Greater New York Dental Meeting later this week. Building on Ultradent's Anatomic Endodontic Technology (AET), TiLOS is a new hybrid system that incorporates both stainless steel and nickel titanium hand files as well as engine-driven stainless steel shaping files and nickel titanium apical files optimized for Ultradent’s 30° reciprocating handpiece to present a safe, effective and affordable instrumentation system. 


    Ultradent developed the Endo-Eze TiLOS File System with the idea of bringing together the metal best suited for files in specific areas of the root canal using the safest and most effective mechanical movement. The system utilizes a cleaning and shaping hybridization technique, using the technology and speed of the biomechanical systems, while maximizing the intuitive, traditional nature of hand instrumentation. It reduces the influence of anatomical variations, pathological conditions and complications often experienced with other systems, such as ledging, zipping, canal transportation, unnecessary tooth structure removal and file separation. 

    In addition to a broad range of hand files and engine-driven files, the TiLOS patient packs consist of three stainless-steel shaping files — purple, white and yellow — with the respective tip diameters of the active portion (.10, .13, .13 mm) and respective tapers (0.020, 0.030 and 0.040 mm/mm); two hand K-type stainless steel files, #15 and #20; and three NiTi transitional files with an active portion initial diameter of 0.25 mm and tapers of 0.08, 0.04, and 0.02. The TiLOS Files are sold in pre-configured patient packs, apical finishing packs and refill packs. 

    To learn more about TiLOS, please attend the hands-on/lecture presentation by Dr Renato Leonardo at the Greater New York Dental Meeting, titled “Technological Resources and Biological Concepts In Minimally Invasive Endodontics” on Tuesday, 1 December, from 10–11 A.M.

  • Ultradent’s Team Unites to Support NCMEC and the Wireless AMBER Alert Initiative

    July 28, 2009 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent announced a company-wide initiative to support Wireless AMBER Alerts, a voluntary partnership between the United States Department of Justice, the National Center for Missing and Exploited (NCMEC) Children and participating companies from the wireless industry in an effort to establish an emergency notification system for missing children. 


    Statistics shared by NCMEC indicate that the first three hours after a child’s abduction are crucial in implementing a successful recovery effort. With hundreds of “eyes on the road” every day, Ultradent’s management team encouraged employees to participate in the Wireless AMBER Alert network to assist law enforcement in their recovery efforts. “In supporting this initiative,” said Dr. Fischer, Ultradent’s President/CEO, “we hope that other organizations will follow suit in asking their members to participate in this very important effort.” 

    Wireless subscribers (those which are capable of receiving text messages), may opt in to receive Wireless AMBER Alerts by registering at www.wirelessamberalerts.org or by visiting their wireless carrier's website. Once an AMBER alert is issued by law enforcement, the NCMEC is notified and provided with information to include in the alert. NCMEC formats the AMBER Alert message and sends it electronically to Syniverse which sends the FREE message to select wireless carriers. The carriers, in turn, send the alert to subscribers. 

    For more information on the Wireless AMBER Alert system, please visit www.amberalert.gov. ​

  • Ultradent Supports the Affiliate Network of National Children’s Oral Health Foundation

    June 22, 2009 Charlotte, NC

    National Children’s Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF): America’s Toothfairy, plans to help its 1,000,000th child in its upcoming fiscal year thanks to generous supporters dedicated to helping children. 


    Since 2006 NCOHF has worked to eliminate pediatric dental disease by staying focused on oral health and education among our nation’s most economically challenged children and their families. Even though pediatric dental disease is completely preventable, it affects millions of children in our country, causing pain so severe it can impact a child’s ability to eat, sleep, learn and thrive. NCOHF: America’s Toothfairy works with a growing national network of non-profit dental facilities, called Affiliates, to provide preventive measures, treatment and education for underinsured children across the country. 

    To date NCOHF Affiliates have served almost 700,000 children and, with additional facilities being added this fiscal year, should reach 1,000,000 by Summer 2010. Because of support from corporations, NCOHF has been able to provide funding and product donations to its Affiliates valued at over $4 million since 2006. 

    Generous corporations provide funding and product donations, making it possible for NCOHF’s Affiliates to receive the support they need. One such corporation is Ultradent Products, Inc., a dental company with a 30-year history of innovation and quality. Ultradent, led by Dr. Dan Fischer, has been a consistent underwriter and product provider since NCOHF was founded. 

    “We passionately believe in the mission of NCOHF”, said President/CEO of Ultradent, Dr. Fischer, “It is a unique opportunity to be aligned with a program that so closely matches our own corporate goals of improving oral healthcare to the underserved. We proudly support the efforts of NCOHF.” 

    Ultradent manufactures and packages more than 500 materials, devices and instruments used worldwide by dentists, group practices, dental and veterinary labs, government agencies and universities. As a leader in the dental manufacturing field, Ultradent adheres to a strong moral code, operating with core beliefs in integrity, quality, hard work, innovation, and care. 

    Support from Ultradent has assisted NCOHF in creating its network of now 60 Affiliates. NCOHF is the only independent non-profit national children’s health organization exclusively focused on supporting delivery of comprehensive oral health care for economically disadvantaged children. Thanks to generous underwriters, 100% of the funds and products raised by NCOHF goes directly to programs that help children who are in critical need of oral health care. 

    “NCOHF exists because of the great need for pediatric dental care,” says Fern Ingber, CEO of NCOHF. “Underwriters like Ultradent make it possible for the Foundation to support our Affiliates, and for them to receive funds and products from caring individuals and corporations. We appreciate Ultradent for their unwavering support since NCOHF’s inception and their belief that we must work together to eliminate pediatric dental disease among our nation’s poorest children.”

  • Ultradent Unveils VALO

    May 18, 2009 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. unveiled VALO, the new wave in LED curing lights at the California Dental Association (CDA) Scientific Session last week in Anaheim, CA. VALO is the LED curing light for unsurpassed accessibility, accuracy and efficiency in a sleek body to deliver the right power in the right place. 


    VALO is anything but your ordinary curing light. Its optimized power output, broad spectrum custom LEDs and precisely collimated beam provide consistent and uniform cures. By offering three curing options (standard power, high power and a new plasma mode), VALO has the ability to cure all types of restorations with the touch of a button. With a three-second time cycle and built-in two-second safety delay, VALO’s plasma mode has been said to rival plasma arc lights in its level of rapid cure. 

    “I have been using VALO for some time and I would not want to be without it”, said Dr. John Kanca. “No longer do you have to decide if you want a normal output, a high intensity output or the power of a PAC light. VALO has all of that in one light, and in a very light and compact unit. Its ability to produce the greatest amount of energy at distances up to 10 mm from the tooth is just amazing.” 

    VALO is engineered for both practitioner and patient well-being. It’s sleek, aerospace wand-style body is lightweight and exceptionally durable. The aluminum body has a sapphire like coating for a virtually scratch resistant surface. These features coupled with a low profile head resulted in a curing light that feels unlike any other. 

    VALO is the next wave in dental curing lights. For more information, please call 1-801-553-4243 or visit Ultradent online at www.ultradent.com. ​

  • Ultradent Announces Free CE Credit

    January 12, 2009 South Jordan, UTu

    Ultradent Products, Inc. is sponsoring a free CE course through an educational grant. The online course, “Tissue Management Concepts”, is authored and presented by Dr. Dan Fischer. It consists of a discussion about hemostasis, tissue retraction and the procedure for sulcular control. 


    President/CEO of Ultradent, Dr. Dan Fischer, is a graduate of Loma Linda University. He has maintained a full time private practice for fifteen years. He is the inventor of several tissue management products which are used widely in the dental profession today. Objectives of Dr. Fischer’s course include an understating of basic tissue management concepts, a process for hemostasis and tissue retraction and an understanding of restorative dentistry-based tissue management. 

    “There is nothing a dentist can do from a quality standpoint when bleeding or sulcular fluid is present”, said Dr. Dan Fischer. “With proper tissue management techniques, the quality of impressions and the resultant indirect restorations can be favorably predicted. In fact, as important as quality tissue management is for impression making, it can be even more relevant to the adhesive bonded restoration, direct or indirect.”

  • Statement from Dan Fischer for Public Release in Response to Personal Allegations

    August 1, 2008 South Jordan, UT

    I woke up this morning to read a statement in The Salt Lake Tribune, saying that I have been trying to hide my life. Anyone who knows me knows that nothing could be further from the truth. It is evident that my work with the Lost Boys and my Congressional testimony last week has made the FLDS sect pretty angry, enough so that they would attack me. 


    The disjointed, spurious allegations against me seem to fall into the following areas: 
    1. That I did not support my children. 
    2. That my first two wives and I separated because I was abusive. 
    3. That I engaged in abusive discipline of my children. 
    4. That I abandoned my children, throwing them out of my house. 

    At the outset, it is important to keep in mind that the FLDS are trying to use me as a distraction to deflect attention from themselves. FLDS are taught from an early age that lying to protect the “Prophet” and the “Church” is perfectly acceptable and even desirable. However, their skillful distortions, lies and half-truths simply will not work. 

    As some of you know, I was married to three women by the FLDS leader in my younger years. The second one married to me, Leenie, has been my wife for some time now. We had our 35th wedding anniversary just two weeks ago. 

    NON-SUPPORT ALLEGATIONS 
    I have 16 children and anyone who knows me knows that I support my family. The allegations of non-support concern two of my children by my third wife Marcia, whom I have not supported, but not for the lack of trying. I was cut off from all communication with them. I was never asked for support, and indeed, when I did try to help them my help was spurned. 

    SEPARATION AND DIVORCE FROM MY FIRST AND THIRD WIVES 
    The separation and ultimate divorce from my first and third wives had to do with personal issues, mostly related to the dynamics of living a FLDS polygamous life, and not with spurious claims of abuse. For example, my third wife was upset with me because for many years I had no interest in having a conjugal relationship with her. Discussion of personal dynamics and things of this nature simply have no place in the public conversation and I simply do not intend to address them. 

    WITH REGARD TO ALLEGATIONS OF ABUSE OF MY WIVES 
    I have already indicated that a FLDS plural household is generally one that breeds many conflicts and indeed, “continual fighting.” And, yes, sometimes that meant physical confrontations on all sides. But to portray a picture that tries to paint me as a “wife-beater” is wrong. It is character assassination, and it is untrue. 

    ALLEGATIONS OF ABUSIVE DISCIPLINE OF MY CHILDREN 
    To try and turn normative corporal discipline, common 20-30 years ago into child abuse is something that is just ludicrous. Sure I spanked my kids. This was not unusual inside and outside of FLDS in the 1970s. Furthermore, to imply that I tried to suffocate my children to keep them quiet is beyond goofy. It is a lie, a damnable lie. Interestingly, I am alleged to have done this in public, in church. If this were true (and it is not) then where were the other parents to stop this alleged abuse and protect the children? 

    ALLEGATIONS THAT I EVICTED MY OWN CHILDREN 
    The children who I allegedly threw out of my house left because they would not conform to the FLDS religious requirements. They were 18 or older. Their leaving the house was simply a reality of the FLDS life and teachings. I might add that one of those children who left is my daughter Jaleena, who is now a dentist and, I am proud to say, my “boss” in a dental practice. 

    BOTTOM LINE 
    I can’t say that I’ve been a perfect parent. I’ve often said “What I wouldn’t give if I could start over with my older children with what I know now.” That said, it is interesting that the charges of FLDS “affidavits” trying to malign me really amount to charging me with living an FLDS lifestyle and conducting myself in accordance with the teaching of the leadership and the typical day-to-day life of FLDS adherents. On this count, I certainly was guilty as charged. Today, I am forever grateful that my eyes were opened to a life outside of the FLDS--one that has freedom, one that is conducive to a constructive husband-wife and family relationships, and one that does not compel an “us against them mentality” that is used to justify lying. 

    I’ve often said that I feel like a human who has lived three distinctly different lives--my formative life in FLDS, my life as a polygamous husband in FLDS and the life of freedom after leaving FLDS. We all know the challenges that can occur in single marriage relationships, where adults seek to discover each other through a quality courtship experience. Imagine the framework for discord when a society takes three women, even women who have their own incompatibilities with each other, and requires, without their having a choice, that they all be married to the one man under one roof and raise a family in such environment. That is not a logical way to set the stage for peace and tranquility in the family. This is what happened to me. And that is not to say that my two former wives didn’t have positive qualities and values. It simply is a goofy way to have to live, and one that breeds friction. 

    I can say that my experiences, even difficult ones, living in the FLDS society have given me insights and the capability of understanding and helping those young boys who have been expelled by FLDS or who left of their own accord. I can also say that my experiences have enabled me to share what I believe are important insights to the wrongs and atrocities committed by the leaders of the FLDS society. From this, I believe some good has come from a very difficult time in my life. And my efforts to help children and even others will continue unabated. 

    Thank you, 
    Dan Fischer​

  • Opalescence’s patented PF formula outperforms ACP in tooth whitening

    January 30, 2008 South Jordan, UT

     Ultradent Products, Inc. today announced results from a clinical study published in the Journal of Operative Dentistry (July/August, Volume 32, Number 5) on the effect of desensitizing agents in carbamide peroxide gels. Among reported findings, a whitening agent with potassium nitrate and fluoride, specifically Ultradent’s Opalescence PF 15%, was found to achieve significantly greater whitening results than a product with amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) (Nite White 16%, Discus Dental) 1. 


    Ultradent is an active proponent of PF and its oral health benefits. The PF formula is a mainstay of all Opalescence product configurations including Opalescence Boost, Ultradent’s in-office whitening treatment. The Matis, Cochran, Eckert & Matis study (2007) found that PF and ACP were equally effective in addressing sensitivity issues some individuals experience when whitening. Other recent studies have focused on benefits found specifically in PF such as reducing the susceptibility to caries and tooth strength2 and the improvement in the microhardness of enamel3. 

    "It is important to define the role of PF in the tooth whitening process," said Dr. Dan Fischer, President/CEO of Ultradent Products, Inc. "The popularity of tooth whitening in today’s society has increased a great deal. Desensitizing agents such as PF provide confidence to our patients that we’re caring for the overall health of their teeth. Nevertheless, esthetics is a primary concern. We’re proud to say that the patented sticky and viscous PF formula found in Opalescence products has outperformed other whitening gels, including those with ACP, with significantly greater whitening results.” 

    Opalescence PF with the patented sticky and viscous gel provides unsurpassed whitening results and the benefits of improved enamel health.

  • Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme

    October 1, 2007 Salt Lake City, UT

    Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme made a glamorous entrance at the annual Style LA fashion benefit last week at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica. Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme was among a select group of sponsors to support the event’s charitable beneficiary, Stop the Violence/Face the Music, a non-profit organization committed to decreasing violence, crime, and substance abuse. 

    The Style LA fashion benefit was co-hosted by actress Shiva Rose McDermott and Samantha Harris of E! Entertainment. The event’s 500 attendees brought together some of LA’s most notable and glamorous stars, including actress Constance Marie of The George Lopez Show, reality TV stars JP Calderon, Leilene and Jo De La Rosa, Keri Lynn Pratt from Brothers & Sisters, Joy Lauren from Desperate Housewives, NBA basketball player Tyson Chandler, designer Jennifer Nicholson and soap opera stars from, Days of Our Lives and Passions Young & the Restless for a flirtatious evening of fashion and beauty.

  • New accelerant material greatly reduces set time of EndoREZ endodo

    August 1, 2007 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. announces the release of EndoREZ Accelerator, the first dental product that speeds the set time of an endodontic resin sealer, allowing the clinician to rapidly transition from endodontic treatment to post-endodontic restorative procedures minutes after completion of root canal therapy. The release of EndoREZ Accelerator makes EndoREZ the only self-priming, hydrophilic and biocompatible endodontic sealer system available with a fast-polymerizing accelerator component. 


    As the newest addition to the groundbreaking family of EndoREZ-branded products, EndoREZ® Accelerator™ reduces the set time from 15 to 30 minutes to 4 to 6 minutes, on average. The reduction in time allows the clinician, assistants and patient to complete a comprehensive root canal/restorative appointment in a shorter period of time. Also, it can enable a clinician and patient to avoid a second recall appointment to finish restorative work. 

    EndoREZ Accelerator is easy to administer when using EndoREZ. An accessory cone (preferably an EndoREZ point) is dipped in a single-use vial of EndoREZ Accelerator. The cone is then passively placed into a canal filled with EndoREZ sealer. The resin begins settings in seconds. EndoREZ Accelerator may only be used with EndoREZ sealer. Additionally, since the material is delivered passively using a dipped accessory cone as a carrier, EndoREZ Accelerator is not conducive to obturation methods involving thermal or lateral compaction. Also, internal testing from Ultradent shows no difference in microleakage of canals treated with EndoREZ and Accelerator. There is no concern for cytotoxicity or biological incompatibility. 

    EndoREZ Accelerator is packaged in a 20-vial package, with two foil blister trays of 10 vials each. Each vial is intended for single-patient use. 

    For more information about EndoREZ Accelerator or any of Ultradent’s endodontic products, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800)552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

    April 1, 2007 South Jordan, UT

    The UniCore Starter Kit contains ten posts – five each of sizes #1 and #2. The kit also contains a size #1 drill and size #2 drill. The UniCore post is esthetic, translucent, and is based on industrial composite technology, resulting in a post that is flexible and durable like dentin, but rigid and refined enough to provide excellent retention of coronal restorative materials. The patented UniCore drill is capable of removing up to 15 ThermaFils, gutta percha, Resilon cones, and other obturators before needing to be discarded. The drill also features a heat-generating tip and high-bandwidth flutes to quickly excavate fiber posts without the need for extra drills and reamers (up to five procedures per drill.) 
    The UniCore Starter Kit is packaged in intuitive, spill-proof modules that greatly simplify setup and sterilization. The posts and drills can be autoclaved in the module, minimizing the time necessary to sterilize posts and drills.

  • Citric Acid 20% Solution

    April 1, 2007 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. announces the release of Citric Acid 20% solution, the highest strength citric acid on the market for endodontic use. Ultradent’s Citric Acid 20% is ideal for dissolving calcium hydroxide materials, such as UltraCal XS from a canal. 


    Citric Acid 20% solution is a slightly viscous, water-soluble solution recommended as a cleanser and conditioner of prepared root canals. It cleans dentinal tubules and aids in the removal of smear layer material. It also acts as a mild chelating agent, softening dentinal walls for more efficient removal of sclerotic and necrotic tissue which in turn facilitates lubrication during instrumentation. 

    Citric Acid 20% solution is tinted slightly orange for easy identification. Delivery of Citric Acid 20% is recommended with Ultradent’s NaviTip or NaviTip FX. 

    For more information about Citrix Acid 20% Solution or any of Ultradent’s endodontic products, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800)552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

  • Ultradent’s Peak SE Adhesive System

    February 1, 2007 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. today announced the launch of a new dental adhesive system, PeakTM SE Adhesive System. Peak is a versatile system with options for self-etch and total-etch techniques. Either technique results in bond strengths to dentin and enamel which outperform traditional systems. 

    Peak SE Primer is a self-etching primer that works specifically with Peak LC Bond Resin to achieve the highest bond possible in a single-step system of conditioning and priming the tooth for adhesion. The ethyl alcohol carrier promotes a consistent coat and penetration which allows for a longer working time, reliable bond strengths and reduced sensitivity. Peak SE Primer is offered with Ultradent’s unique syringe-to-syringe JetMix delivery system to ensure a consistent, fresh adhesive chemistry with every application. The chemistries are activated when the syringe components are mixed together and remain fresh for over 30 days. 
    Peak LC Bond Resin is a syringe-delivered, light-cured, resin bonding adhesive. Depending on the treatment preference, the resin can be used with either the SE Primer for a self-etch technique or Ultra-Etch for a total-etch technique. Peak LC Bond Resin incorporates a 7.5% nano filler, which penetrates tubules to reinforce and strengthen the hybrid layer. The material has the optimal viscosity to provide a consistent application with greater control in delivery. 
    For exceptional bond strengths, virtual elimination of post-op sensitivity and convenient delivery, Ultradent’s Peak SE Adhesive System takes bonding to a higher level. 

    Peak SE Primer and Peak LC Bond Resin are available in a combination kit or separate as an introductory or refill kit. For more information about the Peak SE Adhesive System, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800) 552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

  • Ultradent’s JetMixTM Syringe

    February 1, 2007 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. introduces JetMix PeakTM, a unique syringe-to-syringe mixing and delivery system. JetMix is designed to offer a fresh and consistent mix for chemistries with two components such as Ultradent’s new Peak PeakTM SE Primer. 

    JetMix is a syringe-in-syringe system designed to prevent chemical degradation inherent with most single bottle self-etch adhesive systems. Components of the JetMix system are separated by a thin membrane. The chemistries within each component are mixed together when the end plunger is quickly and fully pressed (or JetMixed) into the middle barrel, rupturing the membrane. Once mixed, the self-etch primer remains fresh for over 30 days. 
    Self-etch adhesive systems which are packaged pre-mixed face specific challenges including degradation of mixed chemistries, which can result in reduced bond strengths. By keeping interactive chemistries separate until ready for use, JetMix provides a fresh mix that maintains unsurpassed bond strengths to both dentin and enamel. 
    For more information about JetMix or Ultradent’s Peak SE primer, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800) 552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

  • UniCore Post and Drill System Improved for Greater Strength and Durability of Multi-Functional Drill

    October 1, 2006 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. now offers the UniCore Post and Drill System with an improved multi-functional drill. Utilizing the same mechanical design and properties of the previous system, the new drill is designed for greater strength and durability. 


    The new UniCore drill is designed and manufactured to increase overall performance during post preparation procedures. The new drill has the ability to complete 15 procedures involving the removal of gutta percha – a 50% increase over the previous indication. The new drill is also capable of completing 15 post procedures requiring the removal of rigid-based carriers (e.g. Thermafil®) and at least five procedures where removal of a pre-existing fiber post is necessary. 

    Other improvements to the UniCore drill include a refined heat-generating tip, which allows the drill to move quickly through gutta percha or Thermafil. The diamond coating surrounding the collar dissipates heat during post or Thermafil removal, which prevents heat transfer and damage to surrounding hard tissue. 

    The UniCore kit includes highly esthetic posts which are radiopaque and translucent. The posts are tapered in the apical direction to naturally follow the tooth’s anatomy and match the flexural modulus of the root. The pre-stressed fibers and non-violated fiber core contribute to a remarkably strong post which provides maximum protection of the root and retention of the core and crown. 

    UniCore’s unique packaging greatly simplifies setup, procedure and clean up. The drills are packaged with matching posts in spill-proof modules which are autoclavable. The modules utilize ISO-standard color-coding for easy identification. In addition to the original UniCore Post Placement Kit (contains Size #1-#4), Ultradent now offers a newly-configured kit containing Size #1 and #2 posts and drills. 

    For more information about the UniCore Post and Drill System or any of Ultradent’s Endodontic products, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800)552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

    ViscoStat Clear is an Aluminum Chloride hemostatic gel designed to arrest minor bleeding and sulcular fluid without leaving a residue. Ultradent recommends ViscoStat Clear as the primary choice for restorations in the esthetic zone. CRA evaluators reported several advantages to ViscoStat Clear including 1) It does not stain soft tissue, teeth or restorations, 2) It quickly controls minor bleeding, and 3) It’s easy to dispense and use. Evaluators were unanimous in their rating of ViscoStat Clear as excellent/good or worthy of trial by colleagues. 

    ViscoStat Clear’s viscous but spreadable consistency is unlike other buffered aluminum chloride solutions in providing better placement and control. The gel is also unique in its direct syringe delivery system.

  • Ultradent’s Anatomical Matrix System

    June 12, 2006 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent announces the release of the Anatomical Matrix System, complete with a patented matrix and retainer clamp design. The specialized design of the matrix and retainer clamp result in restorations that mimic the natural curvatures of a tooth. 

    The system includes four distinct shape matrices providing options for different size teeth. The thin and flexible material allows the bands to conform to any tooth surface. The specialized contours ensure that the matrix will not catch on the gingival margin during placement. The matrices are interchangeable with all brands of sectional retainers. 
    The system includes one distinct retainer clamp shape which can be used with any shape and size of tooth. The clamp stacks easily allowing the sides of the tooth to be held in a matrix at the same time. The clamp tines are contoured to fit precisely with the matrix bands resulting in multiple contact points and minimizing the extra space created between the teeth. All rubber dam forceps and other sectional matrix forceps can be used to place the retainer clamps. 
    Ultradent’s Anatomical Matrix System has a variety of kit configurations, including regular, large and extended matrix sizes. For more information about the Anatomical Matrix System, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800) 552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

  • Whiten with Caries Prevention using Opalescence PF

    February 24, 2006 South Jordan, UT

    Potassium Nitrate plus Fluoride found in Opalescence PF1 combined with the proven effectiveness of Ultradent’s carbamide peroxide formula offers a powerful solution for take-home tooth whitening. Clinicians now have a prescription for tooth whitening while preventing the incidence of caries. 


    Recent studies using Opalescence PF have demonstrated that Ultradent’s patented formula results in greater overall enamel health and strength. A study in the Journal of Operative Dentistry reports that the combination of Potassium Nitrate and Fluoride in Opalescence reduces the susceptibility of caries2. In the same study, it is also reported that Opalescence PF increases the mineral content of the enamel for greater tooth strength. 

    In addition to the proven benefits of caries prevention, Opalescence PF lowers tooth sensitivity. Opalescence PF and other Opalescence products are available in a variety of concentrations, formulations, flavors and kit configurations to meet all whitening needs. 

    As the leader in whitening for over 25 years, Ultradent is excited to announce another breakthrough. With caries prevention, improved overall enamel health and unsurpassed whitening, Opalescence PF has revolutionized the quality and benefits of tooth whitening.

  • Ultradent’s Flor-Opal Varnish

    February 14, 2006 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent’s new Flor-Opal Varnish is the answer for dental professionals seeking a varnish that is effective, easy to prepare and pleasant tasting for the patient. Flor-Opal Varnish’s unique mixing and delivery system provides the additional benefits of controlled delivery, uniform distribution of fluoride and easy application in difficult to reach areas. 


    Flor-Opal Varnish is a 5% sodium fluoride varnish suspended in a natural resin carrier. The varnish is applied to enamel and exposed dentin as a fluoride treatment. Flor-Opal Varnish’s syringe-to-syringe mixing and delivery system overcomes the main problems inherent to other fluoride varnishes, namely the separation of fluoride from the resin carrier and difficult delivery. 

    The lack of solubility of sodium fluoride in the resin carrier results in separation of the fluoride. This separation causes inconsistencies in the therapeutic amount of fluoride placed.1 Flor-Opal Varnish’s syringe-to-syringe chairside mixing prevents the separation and assures a uniform mixture and consistent fluoride dosage. The delivery system unique to Flor-Opal Varnish also provides a quick and easy application in a no mess unit dose. 

    Flor-Opal Varnish is provided with a FX Flex tip which is designed to accommodate custom bending at any angle. This feature provides easy application of varnish in difficult-to-reach areas. The fiber tip of the FX Flex functions to control and evenly distribute the varnish. 

    Unlike other varnishes with resin carriers, Flor-Opal Varnish is available in three great flavors: mint, grape and bubble gum. 

    Flor-Opal Varnish is the perfect solution for fluoride treatment. With its unique syringe-to-syringe system, Flor-Opal Varnish offers the delivery and consistency you can count on. For more information about Flor-Opal Varnish or any of Ultradent’s other hygiene products, please call Ultradent Products, Inc. at (800)552-5512, or visit us online at www.ultradent.com.

  • New Flor-Opal and UltraEz Upper-Lower Combo Packs

    February 13, 2006 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent is excited to introduce new upper-lower combo packs for both the Flor-Opal and UltraEZ desensitizing gel kits. Each kits contains 10 upper and 10 lower trays in the patented “Treswhite delivery” system. 


    Flor-Opal and UltraEz give dentists and patients the ability to treat sensitivity without the need to worry about impressions, models, or lab time. Inspired by Tréswhite packaging, each individual tray incorporates an outer delivery tray, as well as a pre-loaded, disposable adaptive tray to fit any smile. With the added convenience of 10 uppers and 10 lowers in every pack, the dentist can provide the exact quantity of applications for the area the patient is experiencing the most sensitivity. 

    UltraEZ is used for quick relief of acute sensitivity from toothbrush abrasion, thermal and chemical changes, tooth bleaching, and root exposure. UltraEz is the excellent alternative for post-op sensitivity associated with in-office bleaching or perio treatments which may cause sensitive root exposure. Flor-Opal is designed as a long term relief solution. The solution stays active 8-10 hours overnight or 4-6 hours during the day. FlorOpal is the perfect preventative treatment for patients with ClassV de-calcification or patients prone to caries. Both Flor-Opal and UltraEz upper-lower combo packs are available in a melon flavor for patient compliance.
