2024 Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting – Interview with Peter Maroon, business development and sales lead at Spectrum Solutions®


2024 Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting Interview with Peter Maroon of Spectrum Solutions® on the new salivary diagnostic test, SimplyPERIO™ Saliva Test Powered by SimplyTest® [3 minutes].

Video Transcript:

Hey, my name is Peter Maroon. I'm here at the Chicago Midwinter 2024 and I want to take this time to introduce you to our new product, the salivary diagnostic product called SimplyPERIOä by Spectrum Solutions.

The reason that this test is so important is because we're testing for not only perio targets, but also caries targets, yeast targets [and] the perio targets will focus on the 5 keystone pathogens along with 4 other targets that are very crucial and essential in identifying not only periodontal disease and gingivitis, but also systemic diseases as well that are associated with that.

And then for caries, we're showing you the full caries risk, where we're testing for a Streptococcus mutans, which are the bad caries, which are the bad bugs that cause dental caries. And then we're also testing for the good bugs that you should have an abundance of that fight off the bad bugs. So, we're giving you a full range of caries risk. And then we're also testing for yeast or fungal targets with Candida albicans, which show the actual patient's oral environment for whether it's conducive to producing more pathogenic bacteria or more good bacteria. And then finally, we are the only salivary diagnostic test that tests for viral targets and the viral targets are essentially important to identify not only host response or immunity, but also, they are tied into cognitive health and brain health. So, we’re the most complete test, salivary diagnostic test, and not only that, but we make it really, really simple to do. So, here's the kit. It comes with the over sleeve, and it comes in a prepaid, pre-applied shipping label box. So, when you're done, you just put it right back in the same box and put it on the counter and just let it go into the regular USPS mail and let your postman pick it up right from your office. So, you can put it right on your front desk, have them shipped out individually that day or bulk ship them back to us. But it's all pre-paid for in the cost.

It's a very, very simple test that will take you about 30 seconds to do it in the operatory and it comes with a funnel, saline solution, you swish around with the saline solution for 15 seconds, accumulate the saliva in your mouth, put it into the tube one shot and then you just simply put this cap on that has a buffer of preservative in there and it preserves that sample at that time. So, it doesn't matter if it's exposed to extreme heat, extreme cold or a long time before it gets to the lab because we're going to get that accurate sample specimen back to our lab and we're going to be able to report upon that so we make it really, really simple and we're the most complete tests out there.

So glad…I am very happy that I had this opportunity to share this new product with you. And hope to see you soon. And we'll have more information on the website and after this video. Thank you so much.
