Contact Perfect Matrix………………………………………………………….

The Contact Perfect Matrix was developed several years ago and was just redesigned. At the Greater NY Dental Show it will be demonstrated at the Shofu exhibit (booth #2006) and Tokuyama (booth #2103). The design is universal and utilizes removable interproxmal windows. Once opened, resin is allowed to expansively flow and conform through the open window for predictable and amazing contacts.

Everyone Needs a Steiglitz………………………………………………………

The Steiglitz Forceps is one of those neat little instruments that will sit in the draw and collect dust until you need it, and then it is priceless! The narrow beak is designed to retrieve posts, points and separated files. At $30.99 it will pay for it’s self the first time you use it. They are available in 45 or 90 degree angles.

DemandForce Works! It puts Patients Back in the Chair………………………

DemandForce works! I have seen this program function in over a dozen offices and every one of them can measure the difference. Most offices were disappointed at first but that quickly changed. You need to understand that it take 90 days before you can notice results. On line demos are available upon request.

Beware of the NJ Tax Man!!…………………………………………………………………..

Here we go again. The NY Dental Meeting is coming in a few weeks and a lot of companies will say, and I quote “WE DON”T CHARGE NJ SALES TAX”. Wrong, wrong, wrong!!! No one charges sale tax, sales tax is collected. It is supposed to be collected by the seller and transferred to the state where the buyer takes possession. Out of state companies are not mandated to collect state sales tax unless they have a physical presence in the state. Also, in the State of New Jersey, 40% of your everyday purchases are non taxable.

If sales tax is not collected, it is your responsibility to complete a Use Tax Form and submit the tax payment. This is something you want to consult with your accountant about. Sales tax is the law and the penalties and fines can be devastating. As the economy tightens, the state will be looking for everything.

For more information on the topic, please refer to the attachment “NJStateSalesTax.pdf.”

Attachment – State of New Jersey Amalgam Separator Registration Form…

Let’s understand exactly what an amalgam separator is. It is a solids collector. It is similar to the collection filter on your vacuum pump, but much finer. It actually takes the place of the pump filter. However, installing it is not the only thing required by law. You have to register it. Attached you will find registration information

The Dentist Song by Steve Martin……………………………………………….

Today is Sunday, November 8th. I know that just about everyone has heard this before, but it is always worth another listen. Turn up the volume, enjoy and have a great day.
