    • The collaboration further advances education in modern restorative techniques

      ST. PAUL‚ Minn. – (January 14, 2019) – As the world of dentistry continues to evolve, modernized products and techniques are introduced to meet the advancing demands of the industry. In order to accommodate these changing needs, 3M Oral Care and Bioclear are excited to announce a new partnership that will support dentists while they pursue the implementation of state-of-the-art procedures.

      As part of the partnership, 3M will host hands-on training courses across the country, featuring Bioclear approved specialists, in order to amplify education of the Bioclear Method. Kits containing all of the required Bioclear tools, along with 3M’s direct restorative products, will be available to dentists who are implementing the method into their practice.

      “With the Bioclear Method, Dr. David Clark basically reinvented the Class II restoration,” said Sebastian Arana, President & General Manager, Oral Care Solutions Division, 3M. “As he continues to advance superior dentistry through innovative clinical techniques, we share the same vision of improving every life through the products used in those techniques.”

      The Bioclear Method is a minimally invasive procedure offering a faster approach that results in long-lasting and esthetic anterior and posterior composites. By combining true engineering and new standardized cavity preparations, along with modern 3M materials and Bioclear instruments, a universal pathway for clinicians is realized.

      “It’s our mission to provide dentists and dental schools with the techniques, tools and equipment to allow for longer lasting, stronger, and aesthetically superior composites,” said Dr. David Clark, Founder, Bioclear. “I’ve honed the techniques and I’ve tested the products so I know, without a doubt, what works best in the mouth, and that’s why I’m excited to partner with 3M to further the education of dentists in modern restorative techniques.”

      Along with providing the tools to perform better composite restorations, Bioclear also focuses on educating dentists through hands-on training sessions which take place at venues throughout the country, including the Bioclear Learning Centers.

      Bioclear Learning Centers offer a custom-designed composite workshop continuum that provides personalized learning in intimate settings to dentists, and ensures that they are directly supported throughout the entire learning process of the cutting-edge restorative method.
