Zolar Technology & Mfg Co. Inc. (a Canadian Venture) has released the PHOTON Series of soft tissue diode lasers: Photon and Photon Plus for Dentistry, announced by Paul Atkins (Executive officer for Zolar) on March 1, 2013 at their Mississauga location. The Photon Plus laser operates at 10 watts of power, which can be used for many dental as well as medical procedures. The Photon laser operates at a reduced power of 3 watts which can perform 98% of the recommended dental procedures.

The Zolar team feels proud to share the experience of one of the leading dentists, Dr. Craig Kohler, after he used Zolar lasers, and Zolar is posting his view point as such to share in this news.

What Craig feels after using ZOLAR:

"I have used the Photon Plus and highly recommend it. My previous diode laser did not have disposable tips. This feature allowed me to bend the tip and have easier access to difficult areas in the mouth. (See my video working on the mesial of an upper second molar on YouTube, http://youtu.be/ckn92I6mPjU.) The footprint of the laser is smaller than other diode lasers that I have seen. The unit is compact (4"x 6"x 7") and it operates with battery as well as with Direct AC (while the battery is on charge) which the dentist can move from one operatory to another making the unit available to be used at any time. Other dental equipment is difficult to move and the dentist has to either purchase more than one unit or only complete a dental procedure that requires the diode laser in one operatory. If one operatory is dedicated to the diode laser, this can back up work flow. The dentist will have to wait for sterilization of the operatory in order to use the diode laser on a number of consecutive patients.

"The Photon and the Photon Plus have 21 and 22 preset settings respectively, for the different common uses of the laser in many areas of Dentistry. Each setting has the suggested value of power, pulse, e.t.c., which helps any first time dentist to make selections about what he/she would like to do. An example would be when removing gum tissue for an impression on a crown the setting would come up automatically to 2 watts. IF THE DENTIST WANTS TO CHANGE THE POWER, he/she can easily do so to have more or less power as he/she desires.

"There is an extensive tutorial in the software which navigates any first time user to enjoy the benefits of laser dentistry that can be accessed on the laser screen to help with any procedure that the doctor needs help with. This helps with using the laser for as many procedures as possible, rather than the initial few the dentist is comfortable with. The laser can be used for endodontic, periodontal procedures, soft tissue surgeries and teeth whitening.

"The cost of the unit is surprisingly low compared to the other diode lasers on the market. The unit is sturdy and well made. They have a three year warranty, a post warranty consulting and support services contract. I would recommend any dentist interested in a diode laser to look at this unit, I am sure they will be glad they did." (Craig S. Kohler D.D.S., M.B.A., M.A.G.D.)

Paul Atkins further added, "Zolar has many such kind of experiences from the world of dentists who felt amazed after using photon series. Please feel free to contact us and visit www.zolartek.com to enjoy the benefits of laser world and be part of the community."

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore.

In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components.

While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Today every business relies on software to drive the innovation necessary for a competitive edge in the Application Economy. This is why collaboration between development and operations, or DevOps, has become IT’s number one priority. Whether you are in Dev or Ops, understanding how to implement a DevOps strategy can deliver faster development cycles, improved software quality, reduced deployment times and overall better experiences for your customers.
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
