A listing of featured products.


The Palmero HVESolo™ from Palmero Healthcare, Stratford, Connecticut, is a new disposable evacuation tip designed for clinicians performing power instrumentation without assistance. The evacuation tip’s lightweight design and short (2.5 inches) length allows clinicians to easily and comfortably guide evacuation along with powered instrumentation throughout the mouth, using their non-dominant hand.  During power instrumentation procedures, bacteria and viruses can spread through splatter and aerosols. The use of an HVE (high-volume evacuator) has been shown to reduce the contamination arising from the operative site. The Palmero HVESolo is a convenient, comfortable, and efficient device to improve the safety and effectiveness of dental procedures. The HVESolo features proper venting, a wide scoop tip, and rounded edges to maximize suction and improve visibility while enhancing patient comfort. It is also compatible with all high-volume evacuation lines.  800-344-6424;
