DOVE® Dental Products introduces new 75 Pack Capt-all® to meet rising safety demands

first_img Facebook Twitter TAGS  DOVE® Dental Products introduces new 75 Pack Capt-all® to meet rising safety demands Twitter Facebook WhatsApp CHESTERFIELD, Mo., Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — DOVE® Dental Products, the leading manufacturer in disposable evacuation dental devices, announces the introduction of a new bulk size 75-count package of Capt-all Handheld Amalgam Capture HVE Tips. With the rising demand for safer, single-use devices resulting from the current COVID-19 pandemic, DOVE Dental Products announced a new large package size of 75 Capt-all tips, now offered at a reduced rate for market introduction in 2021. Capt-all is the only handheld amalgam separator device designed to collect amalgam waste directly from the patient’s mouth into a patented designed tip that fits into any standard HVE valve. Once amalgam is captured into each Capt-all Tip, it can be safely sent back in a recyclable container to properly dispose of the captured amalgam. Now, Capt-all can either be purchased in an introductory package of 25 tips or a bulk package of 75 tips with a 75-count recycle container. “COVID-19 has shifted the focus of dental products to be safety-based,” said Jim Langeloh, Vice President of Sales at DOVE Dental Products. “Hands-down, Capt-all is the safest amalgam separator system that meets the new EPA Amalgam Collection Compliance Requirements by capturing amalgam immediately before entering the office evacuation system and is guaranteed safe with its single-use design.” Langeloh continued, “We have seen demand increase substantially for safer devices with larger package sizes for our DOVE Dental Product line. Other safety measures include backflow prevention, individually wrapped tips, and alleviating the dangerous cleanup measures required by traditional amalgam separators.” On July 14, 2020, the EPA Final Amalgam Separator Ruling took effect, requiring most general dentists to install an amalgam separator to prevent mercury from entering the air, water, and land (Ref. 1). Many state and local EPA agencies have delayed enforcement due to COVID-19 restrictions. About DOVE® Dental Products: DOVE® Dental Products is dedicated to developing and distributing innovative, cost-effective disposable oral evacuation devices that prevent backflow and eliminate cross-contamination between patients. DOVE products are simple to install and intuitive with performance with no need for sterilization or autoclaving. All products are made in the USA and manufactured in ISO 13485 facilities.

MBB : Syracuse vs. Morgan State preview

first_imgAfter its win over Iona on Saturday, No. 5 Syracuse (11-0) will get no rest as Morgan State (4-4) comes to town for a 7 p.m. matchup in the Carrier Dome. It is part of three games in five days for the Orange.The Bears have won the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference two seasons in a row, making two consecutive NCAA Tournament trips in the process. And in his postgame press conference Saturday, SU head coach Jim Boeheim stressed the importance of not taking the Bears lightly, using recent nonconference slip-ups of Tennessee, Illinois and UCLA as examples. ‘The bottom line is it doesn’t matter who you play,’ Boeheim said. ‘There are a lot of good teams, a lot of good basketball players.’Here’s a look at how SU matches up with Morgan State:POINT GUARDAdvertisementThis is placeholder textScoop Jardine6-2, 190, JR.13.0 PPG, 6.2 APGLarry Bastfield5-11, 185, JR.3.9 PPG, 3.4 APGJardine is on a streak of four straight games with double figures. He has shot the ball better in the last three contests.SHOOTING GUARDBrandon Triche6-4, 205, SO.9.1 PPG, 3.5 APGAric Brooks6-6, 210, JR.9.6 PPG, 5.6 RPGMorgan State is the best matchup size-wise of the weaker nonconference opponents SU has faced. But Triche seems to be hitting his stride in the past two games.SMALL FORWARDKris Joseph6-7, 210, JR.13.8 PPG, 5.1 RPGDeWayne Jackson6-8, 210, SO.15.4 PPG, 5.6 RPGJackson has had outbursts of 31 and 24 points this season. He’ll be a tough matchup for Joseph, who just had second 20-plus-point game of the season against Iona.POWER FORWARDRick Jackson6-9 240, SR.13.5 PPG, 12.1 RPGKevin Thompson6-9 240, JR.14.0 PPG, 9.4 RPGFor the second straight game, Jackson will face the opposing team’s best player. In this case, he matches up against a player with similar size and abilities. Thompson can score and rebound inside, and should play a key role in this game.CENTERFab Melo7-0 244, FR.2.1 PPG, 2.1 RPGRodney Stokes6-10 225, JR.5.0 PPG, 2.8 RPGJust days after only playing only five minutes against Iona, Melo will likely see limited action again due to a sore Achilles tendon. But regardless of who is playing for SU, Stokes is likely to struggle against Melo and Baye Moussa Keita inside.COACHESJim Boeheim840-293, 34 seasonsTodd Bozeman149-89, 8 seasonsBozeman led California to the Sweet 16 back in 1993, and has led Morgan State to conference championships and the NCAA Tournament each of the last two seasons. Boeheim, on the other hand, continues to climb the NCAA’s chart in all-time coaching victories. FORTUNE COOKIE: BEAR-ly a contest STAT TO KNOWIn the last five games, Dion Waiters has averaged 11.5 points off the bench and scored in double figures four times.

Women of Troy to face Utah, Colorado

first_imgAfter splitting a pair of home games against Pac-12 opponents last weekend at the Galen Center, the Women of Troy now look to strongly finish off their four-game home stand against Utah on Friday at 7 p.m., followed by No. 22 Colorado on Sunday at 10 a.m.Pushing ahead · Sophomore guard Ariya Crook is averaging 16 points per contest since USC’s 67-62 win on the road against the Oregon Beavers back on Jan. 6, 2013. The Women of Troy are 4-3 over that span. – Joseph Chen | Daily TrojanOn Jan. 25, USC (8-11, 5-3 Pac-12) fell 60-53 to Arizona State at the Galen Center. The Women of Troy led by 16 points at halftime, 36-20, before the Sun Devils rallied in the second half, outscoring USC 40-17 to hand the team its third consecutive loss.In the defeat, junior forward Cassie Harberts hauled in her seventh double-double of the season with 24 points and 14 rebounds. The Sun Devils’ comeback was primarily because of their hot shooting, as they heated up from 32 percent in the first half to 59 percent in the second half, finishing the game shooting 45 percent from the field.The Trojans were able to rebound from their previous loss and put a stop to their three-game losing skid with a 74-57 win over Arizona on Jan. 27, shooting 50 percent from the floor in the first half to jump out to a 43-22 lead at halftime. Unlike the Arizona State game, the Women of Troy would secure the large lead and not look back, holding Arizona to only 29 percent shooting compared to their 48 percent.“We were able to put the Arizona State game behind us, rally together as a team and close out the game,” Harberts said.The Trojans were also able to force plenty of Wildcat turnovers with 15 steals and moved the ball well as the team finished with 20 total assists. Once again, Harberts led the way with 26 points. She wasn’t alone in double figures this time, as four USC players scored at least 10 points. Sophomore guard Ariya Crook added 15, sophomore guard Kiki Alofaituli had a career-high 11 and junior forward Kate Oliver put in 10.“Arizona is a very good basketball team, better than their record indicates, and it took a maximum effort to beat them,” USC head coach Michael Cooper said. “We had a little chip on our shoulder from the Arizona State game and I felt that we learned from our mistakes.”Utah (10-9, 1-7) and No. 22 Colorado (15-4, 4-4) are coming off a pair of games against No. 4 Stanford (18-2, 7-1) and No. 6 Cal (17-2, 7-1).The Utes dropped both games by sizable margins, losing 65-44 to Stanford and 71-54 to Cal.
