Forget the boring glove boxes of the past. SmartPractice, manufacturer of all types of gloves used in health care, has reinvented the glove box to better suit the caregiver's environment.
The new "boutique-sized" box holds the 100 gloves as a standard box but is taller and narrower, allowing two boxes to fit in the same amount of counter space.
The most noteworthy feature of the new boxes is their uplifting graphic treatment in themes, which will change periodically to surprise and intrigue staff and patients alike. Future box art themes will be inspirational, sometimes topical, always thought-provoking and calculated to complement the office environment.

Handheld patient demonstration tool
The sonipod™ is a new handheld patient demonstration tool designed specifically for use with the sonicare® toothbrush. Developed for Philips Oral Healthcare, the sonipod™ is designed to demonstrate two unique features of the sonicare® toothbrush. The LED "strobe" lights on the front of the sonipod™ can be adjusted to slow down the bristle motion of the sonicare®, thereby showing the gentle sweeping action of the brush.
Under the clear blue lid is a quadrant of model teeth surrounded by fluid and a plastic housing. When the sonicare® is held against this housing at the recommended 45-degree brushing angle, dynamic fluid action can be observed. The sonicare® toothbrush creates this fluid action when it comes in contact with water, saliva, and toothpaste in the mouth, allowing cleaning to occur not only upon direct contact with the tooth surface, but also in hard-to-reach areas like between the teeth and below the gum line.
For additional information, contact your professional representative at (800) 676-7664 or visit www.sonicare.com/sonipod.
