Dollamur Flexi System Makes Take-Downs Easy For Everyone

The days of heavy 1 1/2- 2" mats are over. It used to take the whole wrestling team to set up a mat. Three or four guys would roll the mat up, roll it onto skates, strap it, move it and then reverse the whole process. Those mats are 3 times the weight of Dollamur Wrestling mats.

Dollamur's Flexi System also contributes to the ease of set-up and take-down by allowing the mats to roll up easier. The mats don't unroll once they are rolled up so no strapping is needed. They always lay flat when they are rolled out, eliminating irritating raised edges and corners. The roll technology allows the wrestling surface to be protected at all times ensuring a long lasting mat.

Dollamur can be located at:

Patterson Dental Issues Points for Purchases Made With Patterson Visa Card

Clients of Patterson Dental can recieve extra points for using their Patterson Visa Business Card. Purchases from Patterson will yield them six points per dollar spent on the card. This makes sense to the clients as these are purchases they would make anyway. Purchases made outside of Patterson will still yield one point.

The Patterson Visa is issued by U.S. Bank National Association ND. Program details, including a summary of account terms and conditions, are available at

*$0 for the first year and every year that you charge at least one purchase to the account. US Bank reserves the right to change program partners at any time.

Dental Equipment and Supply (DES) has joined the American Dental Cooperative (ADC)

As a family owned company, Dental Equipment and Supply (DES) is putting some eggs in the co-op basket to ensure a competitive edge in the marketplace.

Dental Equipment and Supply (DES) has joined the American Dental Cooperative (ADC). ADC is a group cooperative that combines purchasing power for vendors of dental products and equipment at better prices than larger corporations. ADC boasts sales of $400M annually, ensuring strong volume pricing from it's vendors. When ADC channels these numbers through a limited number of vendors, they are able to leverage the situation to their benefit in a very effective way.

Through this approach, DES is has truly harnessed the ability to offer the service of a family owned company, with the price and quality related competitive strengths of larger vendors.

Launch of Dental Phase of Community Outreach Program

July 30, 2010 We are pleased to announce the dental phase of the Community Outreach Program we are known for. Our new dental clients have never seen the likes of this.

I was a student athlete through my college career at Weber State University and have a special place in my heart for student athletes, thus helping me to create this program.

I have worked long and hard with school districts, Super Intendants, Athletic Directors, Coaches and Dentist alike to make this program a reality. The school districts were in general thrilled at the program from it's very inception.

The program itself is allowing us to fit student athletes with mouth guards free of charge to the student athletes and their parents. As 4 of every 5 mouthguards are not properly fitted, this is a tremendous service to the student athlete. This fitting helps them avoid leisions in the mouth, respiratory dangers and even exercise induced asthma.

Jefferey Johnson, Athletic Director of Dallas Independant School District was key in bringing the proram to their student athletes. I was impressed by his true concern for the wellbeing of their athletes. He caught the vision early on and did everything he said he would do.

Since beginning this program we are in agreement with every major school district in the state and will expand to other markets when proper service and systems are tried and true.

Plano ISD has especially been a forerunner in the program. Services provided by Greg Lutke DDS. of Plano, I can't say enough about the support we received from the Super Intendant, Athletic Director and coaches. Dr. Lutke was the first Dentist I talked with about the program and he was happy to contribute his time and resources to helping out the community.

It has been interesting to me as the cream of the crop have risen from this campaign. It is very evident who really cares about the community and wants to make a difference. These are the type of people we love to work with.

I ask the patience of all involved. As this is the first year we have run this portion of the program there will be some bugs to be ironed out, but nothing insurmountable. I am personally overseeing this project and will make myself available should you require my services.

We are excited to add this to the community outreach program including the Body By Banks workout program we give away, along with the CEOfit and Corporate Wellness programs we give away in partnership with our clients.

We are continuing to accept Dentists, Chiropractors and youth sports organization to join our programs so long as we have capacity to. Contact us directly for more details.

An update will be issued to report on the continued successes of the program.

Ins and Outs of finding the Right Dentist

With proper research you can save yourself a lot of time, money and pain in choosing the right Dentist. Many people leave dental practices with poor services whether they know it or not. Not yet anyway.

Many people think that because there is a DDS behind someone’s name they must know what they are doing and don’t think to draw a distinction between one that does quality work or bad.

I have spoken to many patients that have had their fillings fall out months after a dentist works on their teeth. Many patients have said they have had crowns fall off or crack. Many patients I have spoken to said they had never had a problem with a certain tooth until their dentist suggested they work on it.

Excruciating pain and costly repair bills can quickly become a priority in your life if you do not choose the proper dentist.

Run a search on Google or similar and look for:
Past and present patient comments
Press releases - This tells you a lot about who they are
Articles about the dentist- The dentist you are looking for should have listings filling a minimum of 1 search page about them and better dentists will have 2 or more.

Do not base your search solely on price. It is far more expensive to have it done incorrectly the first time and have it repaired or redone again.

Match your dentist with your priorities. If you want a dentist that loves the community and people, choose one that does community events and gives back to the community. This evidence will be visible on the web search.

Do not choose a Pediatric Dentist just because the office looks like a theme park. As fun as some of these themes are, you still want the same credentials for Pediatric Dentists as you do for your own. Do the same research on them as you would on any other dentist.
