DrBicuspid.com announces 3M ESPE's exclusive sponsorship of its Hygiene Community


December 1, 2010 -- TUCSON, AZ--(PRWEB)--DrBicuspid.com, the fastest growing online dental news site, announced today the exclusive sponsorship of its online Hygiene Community by 3M ESPE. Updated daily, the Hygiene Community will be a primary news and information resource for dentists, dental assistants, and hygienists interested in the latest clinical research, technology, and trends in the delivery of oral hygiene care.

The Hygiene Community will focus on news and research in preventive products and techniques, infection control, the relationship between periodontal disease and systemic diseases and conditions, and the evolving role of the dental hygienist in the modern dental practice.

Visitors can reach the Hygiene Community directly at hygiene.drbicuspid.com or through a link on the DrBicuspid.com home page.

With the growing body of research demonstrating links between periodontal disease and numerous chronic and systemic diseases -- including diabetes, hypertension, Alzheimer's, cancer, stroke, heart disease, and rheumatoid arthritis -- the need for dentists, dental assistants, and hygienists to stay informed about these studies is on the rise as well. In addition, the advent of superbugs and viruses has made infection control an even higher priority for dental practices.

"Research continues to show the relationship between periodontal disease and such diseases as diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer's. This puts increasing pressure on dental professionals to remain up to date on this information in order to properly educate and inform their patients," said Ashok Shah, general manager of DrBicuspid.com. "In addition, the need to ensure that underserved communities gain access to much-needed dental care is at an all-time high. We're extremely proud to partner with 3M ESPE to provide an online resource to help the dental team stay abreast of the changes in oral care research and delivery that are impacting their practices, and their patients, every day."

"3M ESPE partnered early on with DrBicuspid.com because of their innovative approach to providing news and educational resources to dentistry," said Karen Capiz, U.S. Marketing Manager, Prevention Portfolio, 3M ESPE. "This fits well with our ongoing efforts to enhance dentistry on the patient and provider side of preventive care through the development of products such as Clinpro<TM 5000 Anti-Cavity toothpaste, which features 3M ESPE's unique tri-calcium phosphate technology to help prevent tooth decay. Our strategy has been to stay involved through our scientific innovations that answer vital demands in the dental industry."
