The interact section houses a discussion board in which moderators place topics, allowing users to share opinions or read what other practitioners think about issues, events and products in the dental industry. In the inform section, users may browse chronologically or topically the latest articles of interest to dentists, while the inspire section holds an array of printable, playable and shareable information for practices and patients.  Users will find infographics, videos and educational slides designed to educate about the importance of good dental hygiene.

According to the company, the name Strada – which means “a new path, road or means to a new relationship’ - is derived from their desire to forms better channels of communication between manufacturers, dentists and patients.

“We understand that it takes more than just great tools to achieve optimal dental health,” said product manager Adrienne Collins. “So, to demonstrate this belief and remain true to our heritage, Pentron wanted to create deeper, more comprehensive relationships with the dental professionals we serve; relationships built on dialogue and creating solutions that can help build successful practices.”

Since 1967, Pentron has created dental consumables and products designed to enhance everyday dentistry. For more information about PENTRON Strata, head to www.pentronstrada.com.
