Dental Exploration Research

Our research team observed and documented dental hygienists interactions with their tools while performing routine cleaning procedures on patients. We interviewed hygienists singly and in groups to capture their preferences and desires regarding their equipment. We conducted interviews and focus groups at Dental Trade Shows both in the US and Europe to document hygienists reactions to concept and prototypes for Dentsply.

Our research contributed to the development of the next generation Dentsply Cavitron, an ultrasonic scaler, as well as several improvements to existing ultrasonic scalers.
