ST. LOUIS, MO (March 10, 2014) – Stoma Dental has announced the launch of its DOVE™ brand line of single-use disposable HVE and SE valves and tailpieces for use in the dental operatory.
“Our new DOVE™ HVE and SE valves were designed to address the concerns of dentists and patients alike that biohazardous debris from earlier patients may find its way into the mouths of later patients,” said Bob Vanderselt, Managing Member of the company. “They were designed to be easy to install and operate. In addition, each piece is infused with an anti-microbial to inhibit the growth of micro-organisms, and especially pathogenic micro-organisms.” Vanderselt added, “Because they are priced to be discarded after each use, they are very cost-effective, both for the dentist in private practice and for the institutional customer.”
The DOVE™ HVE and SE valves are intuitively simple to operate, smooth and easy switch activation by the dentist, assistant or hygienist. At the end of each procedure, the valves can be pulled off of the vacuum line and discarded. When the vacuum line cannot be turned off between patients, the line can be plugged with a single-use disposable tailcap.
The DOVE™ line will be available for inspection at the Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting, held March 27-29 at the Georgia World Congress Center and Omni Hotel at CNN Center, said Jim Langeloh, VP of Sales for Stoma Dental. The company will be exhibiting at booth 1653, he said.
