Shipments of Kerr’s SonicFill Tips
Surpass Million Mark

ORANGE, CA – February 2, 2012 - Kerr Corporation, a leading manufacturer of technology for dental procedures, announced today that it has now shipped more than one million tips for its SonicFill™ composite system to North American customers.  The SonicFill composite system is a first-of-its-kind product that enables clinicians to perform posterior restorations with a fast, easy and reliable bulk fill technology using a sonic-activated handpiece. 

The technology has been a home run success for Kerr® since the day it was launched – exceeding projected expectations of shipments each step of the way.  Immediately embraced by the dental community, SonicFill has achieved the one million tip sales mark a mere five months after entering the market, illustrating the dental community’s endorsement of the technology and that such a system is an ideal fit for today’s industry.  

News of the million tips shipped follows close on the heels of Kerr’s recent unveiling of a portfolio of scientific research pertaining to SonicFill.  The research illustrates how SonicFill’s easy-to-use bulk fill technology compares favorably with traditional composite material and placement techniques.

 “We’re extremely pleased with the positive reaction and quick adoption of our SonicFill technology by the dental community,” said Damien McDonald, Kerr’s President.  “Kerr is a company with a commitment to our customers to provide innovative tools and solutions so that their patients can receive the best possible care and outcomes.”  

“The quick buy-in from the dental community and the widespread belief in the protocol we’ve introduced have more than exceeded our expectations,” added McDonald. “It’s gratifying to be able to present a new technology that is literally changing the way composites are done and we are very much looking forward to unveiling similarly innovative technologies in 2012.”
