    Spoke with 3M yesterday at the DC Dental Show and they were happy to take orders but cautioned that the product will not be out until June. Our office’s senior dental assistant worked with it and thought it would be ideal for new dental team members who are just learning to make temporaries. She was not thrilled with the occlusion. She thought it would be hard to get patients who are already numb to give her an accurate bite-down. She’s a perfectionist with her temporaries so she won’t be switching but our new assistant was willing to give it a try. I’ll update when we have more experience with it.
