ORANGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kerr Corporation, a leading manufacturer of innovative restorative dental products, has entered into a partnership with the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), an international institution dedicated to the progress of the dental profession through the integration of comprehensive diagnosis, contemporary techniques and technology.
Through the partnership, Kerr will support LVI’s continuing dentistry curriculum by providing LVI with guest lectures, hands-on demonstrations, and opportunities for enrolled dentists to utilize many of Kerr’s innovative dental products and technologies such as SonicFill, OptiBond XTR, NX3, Herculite Ultra and others, with live patients.
“We’re very excited to be once again partnering with LVI,” said Kirsten Edwards, Kerr’s Director of Clinical Affairs. “As new and groundbreaking technologies continue to be introduced into the world of dentistry, we strongly believe that higher and continuing education is of great importance. It makes sense for us to align ourselves with LVI’s curriculum, which is very much designed to improve the lives of patients and enhance professional satisfaction through keeping its attending dentists updated with the latest techniques and technologies in our industry.”
"Kerr technology such as SonicFill, for example, which provides a practical, efficient technique for placing posterior composites in one, single, esthetic, bulk fill increment, can be game changing for our industry,” said Dr. Ron Jackson, DDS, an LVI dentist. “It’s important that such technology be available in continuing education forums such as LVI.”
LVI offers lectures, hands-on and live patient courses throughout its curriculum. Dr. Bill Dickerson founded LVI in 1994 and was one of the first instructors to offer “live patient” continuing education. LVI courses focus on advanced diagnostic, occlusal and esthetic dentistry.
The LVI-Kerr partnership is effective immediately and Kerr technologies and dental products are already in use at the LVI clinics.
