ST. LOUIS, MO, USA, January 18, 2023 / -- Perio Protect and BEST for Dentistry, a group purchasing and services organization supporting independent dentists, have partnered to deliver improved patient care in the post-antibiotic age.

Perio Protect markets the prescription Perio Tray™ delivery of Perio Gel™ products with 1.7% hydrogen peroxide for home use. Research* shows that the 10-15 minute deep delivery from Perio Protect’s proprietary trays reduces bacterial loads, bleeding, inflammation, and pocket depths. Improving gingival health also provides the foundation for optimal, long-term oral health.

As a Group Purchasing and Services Organization with more than 1200 members, BEST has negotiated special rates and discounts with industry leaders who focus on improving patient care. BEST’s portfolio of products and services, combined with dedicated support professionals, enables independent dental practices to reduce costs, improve profitability, operate more efficiently, and grow their practices. Perio Protect will provide free training and preferred pricing to BEST members, in addition to done-for-you implementation and marketing programs to boost practice production from the hygiene chair.

“For decades dentists have prescribed antibiotics to treat periodontal disease, yet half of American adults still present with chronic periodontitis,” says Tanya Dunlap, Vice President of Perio Protect. “We can do better for so many more patients and are excited to partner with BEST for Dentistry to put periodontal disease into remission and prevent its recurrence.”
