Kerr SonicFill Tip Shipments Surpass Five Million Mark in North America

ORANGE, CA – April 10, 2014 – Kerr Corporation, a leading manufacturer of innovative dental composite products, announced today that it has now shipped more than five million tips for its SonicFill™ bulk cure composite system in the U.S.

The SonicFill composite system, a first-of-its-kind product, enables clinicians to easily perform posterior restorations with a fast and reliable SingleFill™ technology via a sonic-activated handpiece.

Quickly embraced by the dental community, SonicFill has achieved the five million tip shipment milestone less than three years after entering the market. Further, SonicFill is now the #1 bulk fill product in North America and also has the highest growth.

“With more than 12,000 dentists regularly using SonicFill in the U.S. today, the quick adoption of the technology has been very rewarding,” said Damien McDonald, Group President of Kerr. “Our clinicians are clearly seeing the benefit for their patients. At Kerr, we continue our focus on providing clinicians and their patients with innovative solutions, so it’s been gratifying to see such a positive and enthusiastic response.”

Dentists around North America have been sharing their positive experiences with SonicFill via Kerr’s testimonial forum on its website. Among them, is Dr. Gary Radz of Denver, who said, “Without a doubt, SonicFill is the best handling posterior composite I've ever used. The more I use it, the more like it.”

“SonicFill gives me the ability to place direct restorations predictably and efficiently,” added Dr. Daniel Rovirosa of Coral Springs, Florida. “The end result is a quality restoration, a productive dentist and a satisfied patient.”
