Conversion from film to digital takes many forms. It’s not just the dental office that is moving from film to digital imaging. Flow Dental, long a leading manufacturer of dental film and film accessories, has also transformed its product portfolio to include unique products essential to every dental practice that’s gone digital.

“We determined that our relevancy in a digital world would hinge on our ability to provide dentists with accessories that improve sensor or PSP usage and augment procedure work-flow — no pun intended,” said Bill Winters, president of Flow.

“Dentists have really responded to our digital products. They recognize the added value we put into each product. They don’t buy our products based on price; they buy based on the benefits to their practice and their patients.”

Take the PSP market. Today, one out of every eight phosphor plate users relies on Flow’s Safe’n’Sure line of PSP envelopes, according to the company. Safe’n’Sure’s three product styles each offer time-savings solutions to enhance throughput and productivity while helping to extend the life and usage of the phosphor plates.

In the sensor area, Flow also strives to distinguish itself. Here at the CDA Presents, Flow is introducing the new Slide’n’Stick sensor slippers. Slide’n’Stick lets the dentist quickly and easily convert his or her RAPiD or XCP film bite block into a universal sensor bite block. It’s easy to use, it’s economical, and it allows the dental staff to continue to use the rings, arms and bite blocks they’re comfortable with.

Other sensor accessories include new Snuggies adjustable sensor sleeves. Snuggies allows the user to cinch-tight the sleeve around the sensor, regardless of sensor size or thickness.

There is also the Sensible adjustable sensor positioner. The Sensible bite block can be adjusted to the mid-line of any sensor, whether horizontally or vertically placed. It’s the only sensor positioner that can do this, according to the company.

And Flow is far from finished re-inventing itself.

“As a family-owned business, much like the majority of dental offices we service, we are proud to be a valued provider of unique and elegant products,” Winters said. “And the best is yet to come!”
