In 2005, a new division of Therametric Technologies, Inc. (TTI) was initiated to assist dental manufacturers in product development and testing. The primary mission of Dental Product Testing (DPT) is to offer an alternative facility for dental manufacturers to out-source their research and testing needs.  DPT has expertise in developing, implementing and conducting numerous testing methodologies for a variety of oral care products and devices.

* Enamel Fluoride Uptake (EFU)
* Enamel Solubility Reduction (ESR)
* Radioactive Dentin Abrasion (RDA)

Our DPT division engineers custom enamel and dentin specimens used for testing from extracted human and bovine sources.  We have our own on-site specimen processing lab where detailed drilling, cutting, mounting and polishing of these specimens takes place.  These specimens are then used for our in-house studies and are also sold to sponsors on-demand for their personal testing needs.  Contact Heath McClure for more information.
