That’s why some manufacturers refuse to sell these products to a physician who never participate in a professional training.Nowadays,more and more manufacturers and distributors invite some experts to organize the professional classes and practical training courses to introduce their technology and products,which is a pretty good promotion form. It is unrealistic for the organizers (or sponsors) to get rid of the economic interests altogether. But the responsible physician in their own fellow to introduce a technology and products, will not only talk about its superiority and benefits, deliberately avoid their shortcomings and precautions.
There are many manufacturers now to produce the same material,especially for the cement, impression material and bonding agent which will be frequently used by you dentists.
