On May 12th, 2017 our Lubricity sales team attended the UB Dental Hygiene Symposium in Cheektowaga, NY. Many hygienists from within the Buffalo area and beyond attended. This event allows hygienists to continue their education and learn new things from other dental professionals.

Many attendees were excited about Lubricity and made it a point to take sample to give to those they care for that suffer from dry mouth daily. Some attendees even informed us that they already give Lubricity out to their patients and recommend it because “it truly is a wonderful product and we are so excited about it!”.
