Ultradent Products Inc. proudly introduces Thermo° Clone™ VPS impression material, an exciting new advancement in prosthodontics and restorative dentistry. To the dental professional taking an impression while trying to minimize patient discomfort, bubblegum-scented Thermo Clone is the brand of vinyl polysiloxane impression material that makes impression taking easier, because of Thermo Clone’s consistent setting times, thermal set curing that activates when placed in the patient’s mouth, and the most effective techniques to get the right impression, the first time.
Thermo Clone VPS impression material is a premium product, specially engineered to be reliable and consistent. It’s extremely temperature sensitive nature allows for long working time, a short setting time, and minimal time in the critical zone where distortions occur. Thermo Clone VPS impression material is also hydrophilic, ensuring precision in every impression by displacing moisture so the material can reach every part of every tooth. The material’s high tear strength allows clinicians to remove it confidently from a patient’s mouth without being worried about breaks or tears, while also demonstrating excellent dimensional stability, maintaining its shape during transfer to the dental lab. Thermo Clone VPS impression material works with all automatic mixing machines and comes with Ultradent’s unique dynamic mixing tip which is easier to install than the leading competitors.
Last, Ultradent offers extensive training and education on Thermo Clone VPS impression material with the knowledge that however perfect a product is, it means NOTHING if technique is poor. That’s why we do everything possible to make sure that dentists and their staff are trained to capture quality impressions.

Ultradent Products, Inc. is excited to introduce three new delicious flavor offerings to its Enamelast fluoride varnish line: Cool Mint, Bubble Gum, and Orange Cream. The fluoride varnish is also available in the original Walterberry flavor.
Ultradent created Enamelast fluoride varnish in response to overwhelming demand for an effective varnish that doesn’t leave an unsightly, uncomfortable, or gritty residue. Enamelast varnish finally allows patients to leave the dental office with teeth that feel clean and smooth. In addition to its silky texture, Enamelast varnish appears nearly invisible against the teeth, eliminating the embarrassment that many patients feel after other varnish treatments.
For a fluoride varnish to provide the best results, it must adhere to the teeth for the entire recommended time. Enamelast varnish features a patented adhesion-promoting agent that enhances retention, making it easier for patients to receive its full benefits. Enamelast varnish’s natural feel also makes it more comfortable to wear for a longer amount of time, allowing for maximum fluoride uptake.
Enamelast fluoride varnish comes in two convenient delivery options: unit-dose blister packs or Ultradent’s signature syringe and tip application. The Enamelast varnish unit-dose blister packs provide an ideal delivery option for the clinician who prefers the convenience of a one-time use application, or for dental clinics in hospital settings that require the use of unit-dose treatments in which all materials are packaged together. Each blister pack includes a prefilled well and applicator brush, allowing the clinician to dip the brush in the well and paint the varnish on the teeth. Conversely, the syringe delivery facilitates the ability to express Enamelast varnish through Ultradent’s SoftEZ® tip directly onto the teeth for fast application. The clinician can also choose to express the varnish onto the back of their glove before painting onto the teeth. As opposed to the unit-dose blister packs, each syringe of Enamelast varnish provides enough varnish for three to four patients.

Ultradent Products, Inc. and BlueLight Analytics Inc. have agreed to a 60-day stay of the litigation between them while they work to resolve their dispute. “Ultradent produces quality products and its curing lights consistently measure well on our checkMARC® system,” said JP Furey, CEO of BlueLight Analytics. “BlueLight has agreed to make changes to the checkMARC reporting to ensure that dentists understand our test results.” Dr. Dan Fischer, CEO of Ultradent, added, “We appreciate BlueLight's attention to our concerns and will use the time during which the case is stayed to work towards reaching a resolution to this dispute.”
June 14, 2016 South Jordan, UtahUltradent Products, Inc., has announced they will donate 5% of the company’s U.S. sales on Thursday, June 16 and Friday, June 17, up to $30,000, to the Equality Florida’s Pulse Victims Fund following the tragic massacre this past Sunday morning in Orlando.
Of the violent attack—which claimed the lives of 49 people and injured 53 others before law enforcement fatally shot the attacker—Dr. Fischer, founder and CEO of Ultradent said, “Once again, we are reminded that we are a country at war. But this terrorist upped the ante by targeting a group of our fellow Americans who bring no oppression to others. They are our sons and daughters who are simply singled out, oppressed, even persecuted simply because of who they are. This is so wrong! This is NOT what America is about! We must band together as Americans and do everything in our power to counter such craziness, be it here at home, and/or by extremists anywhere who preach and enact hate against all others.”
He went on to say, “The victims are our sons, daughters, and family members at all levels. Our hearts and prayers are with them.”
Last, Dr. Fischer, in his statement called for appropriate action to be taken by our nation’s top government officials, quoting Albert Einstein in saying “Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”
He concluded by calling back to Ultradent’s Core Values, encouraging all people to “have courage and do the right thing!”
Showing one of Ultradent’s Core Values, Care, the company frequently donates to the Utah Food Bank, to various national and international dental humanitarian missions, and has made significant donations to national and international disaster and crisis victims, including Typhoon Haiyan, Hurricane Sandy, the Haiti Earthquake, flooding in Japan, and the recent earthquake in Ecuador.
