Fones Dental School, “The First School of Dental Hygiene”, in Bridgeport, CT, in partnership with SMU University in South Korea, arranged for students to participate in a factory tour at Centrix headquarters.
Led by Toby Hampp and Lauren Thunem, the tour gave a group of future dental hygienists a chance to see Centrix in action, from manufacturing and shipping to sales and marketing. The students were excited to see the manufacturing machinery, the products coming off the assembly lines and the detail that goes into our quality control and packaging.
Also on hand for the tour, Dr. William B. Dragan and John Discko discussed access to oral health and shared their combined years of dental experience with the students. It was a very informative tour for these young future hygienists!
We wish them the best of luck in their studies and in their future careers in the dental industry.
Centrix makes dentistry easier!

“I am pleased that our FluoroDose is now available to our European customers. It is one of our most popular products. At Centrix, we make preventive dentistry easier. Great prevention starts with great products.”
Dr William B. Dragan, CEO and Founder, Centrix
“I am an instructor in dental hygiene. We are impressed with several things about FluoroDose! First of all, we really like the creamy and hydrophilic consistency of the product. With FluoroDose- it goes on smoothly, quickly, and wicks interproximally easily. Secondly, in the past a lot of children complain about the taste, and some even gagging and throwing up after application of the varnish. This just doesn’t happen with Fluorodose! They rarely complain about the taste. We LOVE FluoroDose!
