This is what we all strive to do. This is a column created to embody a hands-on approach toward user-friendly solutions for our lives. Each month I discuss concepts relating to woman dentists, their lives, and their work. I focus on alternative dental products, Web sites, books, concepts, and organizations that simplify our world.
BioLube TLC System (www.sdssouthland.com)
Bio Lube™ overcomes sluggish handpiece performance and turbine failure. Unlike oil, Bio Lube™creates a micro-thin polymer shield created by nanolubrication technology. It reduces friction, wear, and repair, and It withstands the temperatures of sterilization. Used with Bio Lube™ Advanced Cleaners, our handpieces have been restored and maintained to like-new condition. Handpieces last 18-36 months longer than with traditional oils. Bio Lube™ products are nontoxic, nonflammable aerosol and biodegradable. Purchase through your dental dealer or call (800) 880-0240.
