I arrived home last week after being away for almost two weeks! Myself and Beth were invited by LM Dental to attend their inaugural 'Midnight Sun Key Opinion Leaders' meeting with 13 other dental hygienists, dental therapists and dentists from around the globe.
It was a trip of a lifetime and one that I will always treasure and be forever grateful. We shared and learned so much and made new friendships with dental professionals from all over.
Going to LM-Dental in Finland has been on my bucket list for the last 8 years and it sure didn't disappoint.
I had my own instrument company for 15 years and was fortunate to tour a couple of different instrument manufacturers along the way. So, I understand and am very aware of what is out there. To see the behind-the-scenes at the LM Facility was super impressive! We don't even realize when we put an instrument in our hand the equipment, the steps, the quality control and the proud craftsmanship that goes into each and every instrument.
If you haven't tried an LM instrument, I encourage you to "Feel the Difference" for yourself. You can purchases these instruments through Curion in Canada (formerly Bisco Canada). If you are from a different country, you can look up who your distributor is, on the LM site.
Like anything new, it may take some time to get used to the handle, as it is a tapered shape and made with medical grade silicone. The tapered handle is so good for us ergonomically, with studies to support this, that other instrument manufacturers are now creating the tapered handle as well! The LM handle is super light, with a fine alloy rod running through to help heighten your tactile sensitivity and will make your days run smoother. Once you try the LM line, you will love them!
I have always been passionate about instruments and ensuring that we are always working with sharp, well-maintained instruments. If you are using dull worn out instruments that haven't been replaced in years and need some help with preparing on the how and why you need new instruments to present to the decision maker, I would be happy to help you.
Just reach out and we can set up a call. I have tools to help you deliver your message.
Do not compromise for one patient, as it will turn into one day, one week, one year and so on. Take care of yourself and feel proud of the care you provide.

Have a great week!
p.s. Thank you to Pearl and Mary Tess for holding down the fort while we were away!
