Favorite Komet USA Product

Dr. Walter consistently turns to Komet USA for her instrument needs. She credits her Komet rep, Martha LoBosco, for introducing her to a world of superior dental burs, and she compliments Martha’s extraordinary knowledge and willingness to go “above and beyond.”

Dr. Walter recalls a time when she needed a specific bur for a case, but there was no way it would arrive in time from Komet’s headquarters in Lemgo, Germany. “Somehow, she shares, “Martha got hold of the product and made sure I would have it in advance of the surgery. That’s why I choose Komet USA.”

While she relies on a variety of Komet instruments in her daily practice, Dr. Walter is particularly fond of Komet’s polishing burs for acrylics. She describes them as exceptionally easy to use and relates how these burs significantly simplify her life by offering a one-step polishing procedure.

The future of Dentistry

“Dentistry is continually evolving, which is one of the reasons why I love it so much. You really need to stay on top of the changes just to meet the status quo. We are seeing increasing numbers of zirconia restorations, but many clinicians lack important knowledge about the effect they have on the opposing dentition. Proper polishing is key to making sure that zirconia restorations do not prove detrimental to the opposing dentition.”
