Qualified & Trusted
Clinical Studies Division
Our seasoned clinical research professionals, with over 17 years of experience, conduct industry-sponsored clinical research trials that investigate the safety and/or efficacy of dental solutions seeking to improve oral health, whether through detection, prevention or treatment of oral health diseases, or evaluation for cosmetic benefits. We plan, coordinate, execute and manage the full lifecycle of each clinical research trial safely and efficiently, in accordance with current Good Clinical Practice guidelines (cGCP) and in compliance with the United States Code of Federal Regulations. Clinical research trials are overseen by an Institutional Review Board as required by federal law.
One specialty study type is salivary peroxide following the usage of whitening agents. This requirement of Health Canada is performed routinely in our clinic.
Another study designed to replace animal testing for the FDA is enamel remineralization from fluoride toothpastes. This type of study is required for all toothpastes on the market in the US if the company prefers not to perform animal testing.
