Testimonials

"EXA’lence provided better flow, better handling and better crown margins. The margin integrity was distinctly superior in a side-by-side comparison to Aquasil with B4."

Dr. Lawrence Kolar
Chicago, IL

“I have been very impressed with the handling of the EXA'lence material. The detail in the occlusal surfaces and in the cervicular area appears clinically to be excellent. Our laboratory restorations have been outstanding and without defect. I would say this material has the potential to change the market by advancing the science of dental impression materials."

Dr. Richard Brown
Tulsa, OK

“EXA’lence has much sharper detail than Aquasil Ultra. The difference was quite noticeable."

Ed Larson
Ideal Dental Lab
Chicago, IL

"EXA'lence material looks like a winner. It was easier to use than PolyEther."

Dr. Brian Gagaliardi
Canandaigua, NY

“I am loving the new EXA'lence material...I use it on the difficult isolation areas because I know I’ll get an
accurate impression."


Dr. Gregory Gillespie
