Benco partners with ProDrive Systems, Pankey Institute

Benco Dental has entered into two new partnerships designed to expand the company's product offerings and offer continuing education courses to its customers, the company announced.

Through its new relationship with ProDrive Systems, Benco will introduce ProDrive's handpiece and bur products to dentists across the U.S. ProDrive turbines retrofit into leading brand handpieces and lock with the ProDrive triangular shank bur. ProDrive offers a full selection of diamond and carbide burs with a bur-lengthening feature that allows the bur to be safely extended by 3mm, according to Benco. ProDrive also offers its own high-speed handpieces in mini and standard, with an ergonomic design and titanium sleeve.

Benco has also formed a new alliance with the Pankey Institute. Together, Benco Dental and the Pankey Institute will offer Benco customers the opportunity to attend the institute's Essentials 1 course, Occlusion and the New Patient Experience, at a reduced tuition. In this course, dentists explore occlusal disease and determine when its management is vital to the success of the dentistry and doctor-patient relationship. Each Essentials level is worth 47 credit hours.

"Our objective is to encourage our customers to enlist in the Pankey Institute Essentials continuum," said Charles Cohen, President of Benco Dental, in a press release. "We have entered into this alliance because the nature of Pankey courses is to address all aspects of dental practice (behavioral, clinical, and managerial) as dentists develop the highest level of comprehensive care for their patients."
