ACTIVA Skeptic Turned Power User Shares Her Story

Dr. Alex Kurey has been successfully using ACTIVA BioACTIVE for the past year with patients of all ages.   She stopped by the Pulpdent booth at the Yankee Dental Meeting to share her feedback!

While a bit skeptical at first as a traditional packable/ flowable composite user, Dr. Kurey now uses ACTIVA BioACTIVE “pretty much exclusively for all composite restorations.” Dr. Kurey, who practices north of Boston, added that she can “fill 3 or 4 teeth really fast, whereas packable would take a lot longer to pack it in there and to cure it.” Her patients are pleased with the esthetics and very happy with how quickly Dr. Kurey can complete a restoration with ACTIVA BioACTIVE.
