Two Dental Benefits providers, Companion Life and Kansas City Life, have both recently announced coverage for a custom periodontal medicament tray code D5994.

Peroxide delivered deep with the tray overcomes these antibiotic limitations for long-term gingival health.”

— Duane C. Keller, DMD, FAGD

SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURI, USA, February 1, 2017 / — Two Dental Benefits providers, Companion Life and Kansas City Life, have both recently announced coverage for dental procedure code D5994 documenting a periodontal medicament carrier, a custom-fabricated tray used to deliver medication into periodontal pockets.

Initial reviews of insurance claim data for patients who have received Perio Trays® indicate that this benefit translates into better treatment outcomes for patients and a reduction in longer-term health costs. For companies that provide both dental and medical insurance, the savings in health care costs are expected to multiply given that treatment for periodontal disease has been shown to reduce overall healthcare costs for patients with diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and pregnancy.

The most common periodontal medicament delivery device available to patients is the Perio Tray. Perio Trays have an internal peripheral seal and are proven to deliver medication deep into periodontal pockets to fight infections between office visits. Patients can only obtain a prescription Perio Tray through a licensed dentist who will develop and monitor a treatment plan for individual patients.

Perio Trays are used adjunctively to provide the best homecare. Toothbrush, rinse and floss can’t reach deep enough into periodontal pockets to help the 46% of Americans adults with chronic periodontitis. The Perio Tray has been shown to place medication into shallow and deep pockets to reduce inflammation and pocket depths when used in 15-minute daily applications.

“The key with prescription tray therapy” says Dr. Duane Keller, the inventor of the Perio Tray, “is to use a low concentration of peroxide to oxygenate the pockets, kill anaerobic bacteria, and change the microenvironment to create conditions for healthy bacterial regrowth. We used to provide antibiotics, but their benefits were largely temporary. Peroxide delivered deep with the tray overcomes these antibiotic limitations for long-term gingival health.”

MyPractice9 Announces Major Service Expansion

Company Expands Services To 10,000 Additional Private Practice Dentists

The MyPractice9 membership team has been getting calls from Oregon to New York from dentists wanting to connect with a quality traveling dental specialist.”

— Nicole Baker, National Marketing Director

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 31, 2017 / — MyPractice9 ( announced today that the Company will be opening its online services to several additional west coast markets encompassing 10,000 more dental professionals beginning February 15, 2017. The Company also announced plans to hire an additional 50 sale professionals over the next several months.

MyPractice9 provides a platform for connecting private practice dentists with itinerant dental specialists like oral surgeons and periodontists for the purpose of providing in-house specialty dental treatments. The Company announced it is beginning an aggressive marketing push to more than 10,000 additional dental professionals within the United States.

“Our roll out is focused and strategic because MyPractice9 is a change of behavior for many private practice dentists," said Nicole Baker, MyPractice9’s National Marketing Director. “The MyPractice9 membership team has been getting calls from Oregon to New York from dentists wanting to connect with a quality traveling specialist. We are working with great urgency to accelerate our capacity to support more markets.”

The private practice dental industry is under tremendous financial pressure from corporate dental chains which use massive advertising budgets within local markets to disrupt the patient-dentist relationships and cost-to-value proposition. These dental service organizations completely change the fee-for-service dynamics of every market they enter leaving private practice dentist with significant business challenges. In addition, reduced insurance reimbursements for basic dental treatment services continue to provide tremendous financial stress on dental practices. As a result, private practice dentist's are looking for new ways to generate treatment revenue while hanging on to their patient base. One way of doing this is through treatment in-sourcing.

Traditionally, certain dental procedures like tooth extractions, root canals and implant surgery have been outsourced to local dental specialists. The value of outsourced dental treatments is well over $6 billion annually. MyPractice9 provides a thoughtful platform for private practice dentists to bring much of that treatment revenue back into their practice.

Dentists simply post a specialty treatment request and indicate how much of the treatment revenue and cost they would like to split with the local specialists. The treatment post is then sent to dozens of local (county-based) oral surgeons, periodontists, prosthodontists, endodontists and even well qualified dentists who are willing to travel to the dentist’s practice to perform the procedure. Specialists submit treatment proposals for the dentist to review. Once a specialist is selected, contracts are sent out to both parties.

"There are several key benefits to the private practice dentists. Dentists regain control of the entire patient experience because all the treatments are done in their own practice. In addition, dentists recapture thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars, each month that used to be forfeited when referring patients to traditional brick and mortar dental specialists. Finally, because the private practice dentist is now the record of revenue, the actual value of their practice increases with the corresponding increase in production revenue," claimed Baker.

MyPractice9 is free to dentists but specialists pay a monthly subscription fee to have unlimited access to local treatment leads. The site is already enjoying a wide subscriber membership base that extends beyond itinerant dental professionals.

“We find that many of the subscribers are not just traveling specialists, Baker indicated. There are a lot of brick and mortar specialists, dental labs and even a few well known dental supply companies who are now subscribing as well.”

Nutrition For Healing Launches Nationwide Sarcopenia Study

MEND Regenerate Medical Dietary Supplement For Sarcopenia

Study will measure the benefits of award winning MEND Regenerate on age-related muscle loss, frailty and improvement in strength and stability

With NSF Sport certification and the continuous research and studies we are running, our customers know they are getting the best products available in functional nutrition.”

— Sheraz Syed, P.T., CSCS, MDT

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2017 / — Nutrition For Healing® LLC announces that it will commence a double blind placebo study of award winning MEND Regenerate to validate efficacy in combating aging-related muscle loss, a condition called sarcopenia which affects 50% of the elderly.

“We’re an evidence based company that relies on strong science in developing our products” says healthy aging expert and science advisory board member Ken Roycroft, “Regenerate was developed after two years of testing in a busy orthopedic and sports medicine practice and we have continued to experience tremendous results with our patients. This study will further validate its efficacy.”

MEND™ Regenerate is focused on combating aging-related muscle loss, a significant health issue which negatively impacts strength, stamina, mobility, balance and overall vitality. Humans begin losing muscle mass as early as their 30s. Many of us find this defeating after spending our first three decades of life easily gaining muscle mass. Alarmingly, we can lose as much as 3 to 5 percent of muscle mass per decade. This can lead to an increased risk of bodily injury after 30 and a vicious cycle of decline. Some muscle mass loss is natural but accelerated muscle mass loss can and should be prevented.

There are a number of factors that contribute to aging-related muscle loss including lack of resistance exercise, reduction in hormones and poor nutrition. Because muscles begin synthesizing protein differently as we age, we need to take in not only more protein, but different protein, especially proteins that digest quickly. Proteins that reach the body sooner are able to heal muscles more quickly after exercise, reducing the risk of loss. MEND™ Regenerate has been formulated specifically to get healthy fast absorbing proteins and other vital nutrients into the body.

“With the combination of our certifications such as NSF Sport and the continuous research and studies we are running, our customers know they are getting the best products available in functional nutrition,” says physical therapist and strength and conditioning expert Sheraz Syed “we look forward to publishing results from this important study and continuing to build strong science around our products.”

Can multi-organ-on-a-chip technologies lead to a paradigm shift in drug development?

Drug Discovery 2017 | Register at

Drug Discovery 2017 | Register at

TissUse Head of BD to lead talk on the impact of Multi-organ-chip technologies on drug discovery.

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITE, January 31, 2017 / — TissUse, leading pioneers of the Multi-Organ-Chip technology, will be joining the expert speaker lineup for SMi Group's exclusive conference on Drug Discovery. The event will be launched on the 27th and 28th of April 2017 in London.

TissUse’s proprietary multi-organ-chip technology platform closely emulates and simulates human biology to achieve uniquely lifelike environments. Connected organs and close physiological context allow remarkably close resemblance to in vivo conditions. This has benefited the drug development process, with current in vitro and animal modelling tests failing to emulate physiological organ complexity within the human body.

Head of Business Development, Reyk Horland, will be leading a spotlight session on multi-organ-chip technologies and its potential impact on drug discovery at the conference.

Reyk's presentation will showcase how "human-on-a-chip" technology is transforming drug development. He will demonstrate how this new approach allows us to closely study organoid interaction and allows more representative drug toxicity and efficacy screening. He will also highlight the importance of highly physiologically relevant cultures and microenvironments as scientists aim to close the gap between in vivo and in vitro.

Reyk will be speaking on Day 2 of the conference and joins lead decision-makers and industry innovators from Sanofi, Takeda, AstraZeneca, Merck Serono, AbbVie, GSK, Johnson & Johnson, UCB Pharma, Eli Lilly and more. A full list of speakers can be found on

SMi’s Drug Discovery conference aims to bridge the gaps in approval for drug discovery and development by discussing the latest scientific breakthroughs, exploring novel technologies and approaches that can be used to overcome drug development challenges.

The event will also feature two post-conference workshops on new approaches in lead generation and applications of physicochemical and biomimetic properties in early drug discovery.

Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Diagnosed Oil Refinery Worker in Utah to Call for Instant Access to The Nation's Top Lawyers for A Free Compensation Evaluation

Before you hire a lawyer or a firm to assist with a mesothelioma claim for a diagnosed person anywhere in Utah please call us at 800-714-0303”

— Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, January 31, 2017 / — The Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center is now urging a current or former oil refinery worker in Utah who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma or their family members to call them anytime at 800-714-0303 for instant access to some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys who actually have experience helping oil refinery workers with this rare cancer get properly compensated. http://Utah.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Next to US Navy Veterans or skilled trades workers-oil refinery workers exposed to asbestos at a refinery in Utah or another state are one of the top work groups for mesothelioma in Utah each year. Oil refinery workers typically should get the best possible financial compensation for this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure but without the nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys-the best possible compensation probably will not happen as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303." http://Utah.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Vital Mesothelioma Compensation Tip from the Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center: "If you wanted someone to run an oil refinery or to maintain it you would not hire someone with no experience in the operation of something as complex as a refinery. Why then hire a local car accident lawyer with little to no experience handling complex mesothelioma compensation claims involving oil refineries or power plants? Before you hire a lawyer or a firm to assist with a mesothelioma claim for a diagnosed person anywhere in Utah please call us at 800-714-0303." http://Utah.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to emphasize theirs is a statewide initiative available to a diagnosed victim anywhere in Utah including communities such as Salt Lake City, Provo, West Jordan, Sandy Hills, Ogden, Saint George.

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Utah the Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital.

* The Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City:

According to the CDC the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However-mesothelioma does happen in Utah.

High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Utah include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. In most instances a diagnosed person with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

The Utah Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “When it comes to obtaining the best mesothelioma settlement, the quality of the attorney matters, as we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303.” http://Utah.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

For more information about mesothelioma please refer to the National Institutes of Health’s web site related to this rare form of cancer:

Is Modular Laboratory Furniture Really More Expensive Than Fixed Casework?

Fixed Casework in U.S. Army Food DiagnosticLab

Modular Lab – Sample Processing

After reviewing many fixed casework & modular laboratory furniture projects; this article compared pros and cons under 4 main subjects. Review them now!

Point 3: Cost is an issue. As it turns out, modular designs are often cheaper than fixed casework installations.

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, July 25, 2016 / — In the laboratory field, there is a major trend underway toward modular lab furniture, yet many assume that modular designs are more expensive than traditional fixed casework. We investigate the facts about modular versus fixed casework.

In this brief buyer’s guide, we uncover the many reasons that modular laboratory furniture is becoming more popular — such as modular furniture’s lower installation costs — which generally make it less expensive than fixed casework projects.

But before we jump into the side-by-side comparison, we want to be clear: Formaspace sells BOTH modular lab furniture AND fixed casework. We’ve got you covered either way.

In fact, we recently completed construction of the largest food and diagnostics lab in the U.S. at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas for the Department of Defense’s Food Analysis and Diagnostic Laboratory (FADL).

So if your preference is for fixed casework, there’s no doubt about it — we have the solution you need.

But modular furniture is coming up fast, so we’d like to share with you what we’ve learned from over 30 years of experience in working with laboratories, and why the market is making the move to modular furniture designs.

Our research and experience shows there are four key points to consider when deciding between fixed casework and modular furniture.

Point 1: The lab you build or renovate today will evolve considerably during its useful life.
Constant change is the watchword in today’s modern life science and research laboratories. In particular, lab designers should pay attention to these three:

– changes in technology
– the hunt for scarce talent
– major real estate trends

First, a word about technology. It’s getting more sophisticated and powerful, often smaller, sometimes cheaper (but not always). At the same time, the continuous roll out of new technologies is leading many to reconfigure their lab facilities far sooner than they anticipated in order to keep pace with the latest scientific advances.

The big advantage for modular lab furniture is that it simplifies re-configuring your lab. With modular furniture you can move cabinets around — even change your entire floorplan — to improve traffic flow, accessibility, etc. Modular furniture also allows you to easily increase your storage density by adding more shelves and cabinets to your existing installation.

On the other hand, fixed casework makes it much more difficult to change anything about your lab layout. Even small alterations can result in complicated, time-consuming, and disruptive construction projects.

As the healthcare, life sciences, and research industries continue to grow, recruiting top talent has become another concern that lab designers and space planners need to take into account. As in other tech industries, the best and brightest graduates have new ideas about how they want to collaborate in the workplace, as exemplified by emergence of non-traditional

Real estate trends are another important consideration. In the established life science research clusters like Boston, Raleigh-Durham, New York / New Jersey, the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and San Diego, occupancy rates are very high, which has driven up commercial rents for lab space to new highs. At the same time, mergers and acquisitions are on the increase.

The upshot is that if your lab has a favorable lease (or you own your real estate), you may be facing increasing pressure to accommodate more people and equipment in your existing location due to the high cost of relocation or expansion. In this case, modular furniture solutions make it far easier to increase the efficiency of your current setup. It’s very straightforward to add new workspaces and additional storage components, which is difficult to achieve with traditional fixed casework.

CONCLUSION 1: To keep up with technology, talent, and real estate space planning trends, modular lab furniture has the advantage in flexibility because re-configuring your facility is much easier compared with traditional fixed casework designs.

Advantage: Modular

Point 2: Chances are increasing that your entire lab operation will need to move to a new location one day.

A report on trends in the life sciences market by the real estate consultancy Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) confirms that overall growth, along with industry consolidation and globalization, is resulting in shortages of available high-quality lab space in the key life science clusters around the nation.

In the Cambridge / Boston area, which has the highest concentration of laboratory research activity in the U.S., the real estate consultancy CRBE reports that lease rates are at a record high and there is little inventory for expansion.

This phenomenon is replicating itself across the nation. As a result, many laboratory research companies in major cluster centers like Cambridge / Boston, the Research Triangle in North Carolina, San Francisco, and Los Angeles are now actively looking at:

– renovating non-traditional buildings to build out new laboratories
– relocating to suburban locations where rents are cheaper and space is available
– moving away from expensive cluster cities to secondary markets, such as Philadelphia
