Bluelight Analytics (Bluelight) today announced that they are joining forces with 3M Oral Care to introduce Bluelight CheckUp to help dentists improve the outcomes of their restorative procedures.
Dentists rely on restorative procedures for half of their income1 and yet they often overlook the importance of light curing to the success of those procedures. Patient care can be compromised, and a dentist’s reputation and revenue can be put at risk in those crucial few seconds they rely on their curing light.
CheckUp offers a solution that supports dentists in their quest for clinical excellence by allowing the convenience of testing their curing lights in their office, on their own schedule. This is the second partnership between Bluelight and 3M Oral Care, following the success of the
CheckMARC service over the past five years.
“We are excited to work with Bluelight as we share a common mission – to help dentists improve the outcomes of their restorative dental procedures. By leveraging the advanced technology of Bluelight, we can continue to work together to help ensure optimal health and quality of dental curing lights around the world,” says Andrew Milder, global portfolio leader, 3M Oral Care.
“For many years, 3M Oral Care has been recognized as a worldwide leader in light curing technology and restorative dentistry. We are excited to deepen our relationship with 3M Oral Care by partnering on the promotion of CheckUp. Together we can ensure clinicians around the world have the tools they need to improve patient care and perform restorations that last,” says Rob Burns, chief growth officer at Bluelight.
