After testing all types of dental products, the results are disseminated to colleagues around the world, supporting dental healthcare providers with in-depth evaluations of new products that often lack testing aside from being used on patients in a random, uncontrolled manner.

Some examples of products studied at CR Dental Health Clinic are restorative materials, tooth-whitening systems, air abrasion units, caries detection devices, and a wide variety of dental equipment.

The newly renovated facility is within proximity to the CR Foundation, its labs, and teaching facilities. “We needed a new clinic where we could continue our clinical evaluations and research; teach dentists and lab technicians; and highlight those products and services that we have found to be faster, easier, better, or less expensive,” comments Dr. Paul L. Child Jr. “Our strong desire is to reach all dentists through continuing education and quality research that is unbiased and independent.”

After determining the goals of the Clinic with input from CR’s principals, Dr. Christensen and Child turned to Henry Schein’s regional and local specialists and other companies to get the project moving. Equipment Sales Specialist John Dickson comments, “CR Dental Health Clinic was structured to allow the CR Foundation to build a facility that would give us the ability to highlight recommended products of our choice that reflect the highest level of quality and demonstrate the highest degree of technology available. CR Foundation would then evaluate these products on a nonbiased basis.”

“Our intentions were to communicate to our patients that they will get the most up-to-date techniques, care, and quality products while paying only a moderate cost.”

CR Dental Health Clinic wanted to demonstrate that a highquality office could be constructed within space limitations. “Our intentions were to communicate to our patients that they will get the most up-to-date techniques, care, and quality products while paying only a moderate cost,” points out Dr. Child. “We desired to convey an image of excellence and elegance within reason.”

“We believe that the equipment installed represents the highest quality and best technology available to today’s dental practitioner,” comments John Dickson. “The unique aspect of this project is that our vendors are supplying the majority of the equipment on a consignment basis. As new products come out…products can be rotated…the doctors gain by having the opportunity to use the best products anywhere in the dental industry.”

“Our strong desire is to reach all dentists through continuing education and quality research that is unbiased and independent.”

Henry Schein’s specialists provided Pelton & Crane equipment, Midmark sterilization center, Dentrix practice-management systems, office equipment, i-CAT CBCT, and the water filtration system—plus hardware and software through our OATS group. OATS experts bring a full range of technology support and solutions to the dental office setting, offering full integration and maintenance that dental healthcare providers need for their highly specialized computing and practicemanagement needs.

“Our patients are at ease in our clinic knowing they will receive the highest quality service at a moderate cost,” notes Dr. Child. “Our staff and dentists are excited to use the new equipment and demonstrate to our patients and other dentists we are teaching how this has enhanced the overall dental experience.”

Referrals have increased at CR Dental Health Clinic with the best technologies on the market to support their continued success as they move forward in reaching their goals and their vision as dental healthcare professionals.
