Beware of Budget Composite Curing Lights

 Technology can be a double edged sword.  It can do amazing things, but it can also be used to perform amazing criminal acts.  One of those less than ethical things is selling goods that appear to be high quality but instead are not.

For the last decade many of us have been warning doctors about the risks of buying curing lights over the Internet from non name brand companies.  Often times a doctor, looking for a bargain will see an amazingly low price and make a purchase expecting the product to be similar to a name brand.

Unfortunately, curing lights are hard to judge.  You buy a light, it lights up blue, you figure it's doing what it is supposed to do...

However, that isn't always the case.  My friend Dr. Richard Price is part of a recently done study that should be required reading for the profession.  Dr. Price is a dentist and an amazing top-notch researcher as well.  I tell people that he may have forgotten more about curing lights than many of us will ever know.

The study he is part of compared "no name" curing lights against a well known quality brand unit.

Give the study a read and make your conclusions.  I think you'll see why many of us that teach have been encouraging name brand purchases...

Here is a link to the study.
