Nicolle Folven, VP of Sales and Marketing for Zirc Company, discusses the benefits of the recently introduced Mr. Thirsty device.

"Mr. Thirsty really changes the way dry field isolation occurs," explained Folven.

According to Folven, the traditional methods of isolation meant that dentists were having to use a lot of products just to keep the working field dry. Mr. Thirsty incorporates all of the traditional methods into one product.

"Mr. Thirsty has patient comfort with the bite block, the tongue and cheek retractor, and the suction," explained Folven. "The biggest benefit over its competition is the fact that it is portable. Mr. Thirsty hooks up to high-volume suction so practitioners like that they can take it around and also have it for their hygiene departments."

According to Folven, Mr. Thirsty suctions twice as fast as its competition as a result of larger channels. Folven also noted that Mr. Thirsty is less expensive than its competitors.

"Our competition charges anywhere from five to eight times as much as Mr. Thirsty."
