HAUPPAUGE, New York--Mydent International has introduced DEFEND Disposable Cups, the latest in a line of DEFEND disposable products. To read more about Mydent, go to Mydent.The recyclable, disposable DEFEND drinking cups offer dental and medical practices a cost-effective way to follow infection control procedures while maintaining "green" practices. "While many practices today are looking for ways to reduce and reuse, it is still imperative to follow infection control procedures to avoid cross-contamination and the spread of viral and bacterial strains," said Andy Parker, president and CEO of Mydent. "That's why we offer superior, yet cost-effective disposable products like our DEFEND drinking cups, for those offices that use disposable supplies as much as possible to avoid potential infections." DEFEND drinking cups have an embossed design that provides greater strength and improved gripping. This also makes dispensing much easier, as "sticking" associated with less-durable cups is eliminated. Offering a lustrous, high-gloss finish, DEFEND drinking cups are available in five vibrant colors: green, lavender, mauve, blue, and white. DEFEND disposable drinking cups are packaged in cases of 1000 cups.For more information, call (800) 275-0020, or visit www.defend.com.To comment on this product, go to www.dentistryiq.com/index/community.html.
