I've been in dentistry for 20 years and have seen and evaluated a lot of caries detection devices. A few were good, but more were not that impressive. All the caries detection devices that I had used gave information that was highly subjective and sometimes difficult to interpret. However, I knew that DEXIS doesn’t put its name on anything but the best, so I decided to participate.
