CAP, provider of end-to-end solutions for dental laboratories, today announced that May 2016 is the inaugural Zirconia Awareness Month to fight the scourge of misinformation about zirconia in the market.
"The types of zirconia that are on the market are constantly proliferating and changing," said Bob Cohen, president of CAP. "Many of our partner labs contact us to make sense of these new and different products, so we're responding with a host of educational initiatives that we've set up for this month."
While education has always been core to the CAP mission to help labs thrive, this special focus on zirconia is and will consist of a variety of tools, such as videos, blogs, webinars, and ebooks. "Our educational focus this month will be on selecting the right zirconia, mill, sintering furnace, tools, and how to achieve best-in-class post-processing -- the entire end-to-end process to produce a superior result that doctors and patients alike will love," said Mr. Cohen.

CAP is pleased to announce our contribution to The Supportful Foundation, a charitable organization which promotes healthy living by facilitating programs and services which aim to support the well-being of individuals and their communities.
The Supportful Foundation has recently instituted the "Dental-ful" program, which subsidizes costs for dentists who perform corrective and preventative procedures. This program effectively decreases the cost of dentistry for qualified, underprivileged patients by granting access to free and reduced cost crowns, bridges, dentures, etc. This program allows these individuals to receive the treatments they require without looming monetary difficulty. The Supportful Foundation states that, "The removal of the financial burden of laboratory costs creates a synergistic relationship of care between the dentist and the laboratory for the benefit of the disadvantaged person."
CAP is truly inspired by these altruistic efforts and thus has contributed CAP FZ...

experience barriers to care. State budget cuts eliminated most oral health
services for low-income adults leaving them without access to dental care. In
children, dental disease is a chronic epidemic - more common than asthma and
obesity - affecting nearly two-thirds of California's children by the time they
reach third grade.
CDA Cares will offer free dental care to Californians who have difficulty
accessing care, including the uninsured, underinsured,...
