 “If the pH is acidic those periodontal pathogens are going to thrive.” 


“For me personally I think it is time to revolutionize how we are treating our patients non surgically.” 


“If we are not identifying the pathogens are we doing a great service for our patients? My opinion is no.” 


“I want to identify it, and eliminate it.” 


“This product timestamps it, it shows us, and the patient mature plaque, and acidic areas.” 


“We want to eliminate any risk factor that raises a patient's risk of periodontal disease.”
