Reduced Stress

I know that my instruments will always be sharp! With the help of Nordent, I have more time to concentrate on patient care and do not have to try to find time to sharpen. The Relyant program provides sharpening with a quick turn-around! Our office will only order Relyant instruments from now on. Thank you Nordent!

Jackie, RDH, Elk Grove Village, IL

The hygienists in our office always have sharp instruments. Rx for staying sharp program offers convenient ship/return for instruments. Using sharp instruments decreases hand fatigue, burnished calculus, and patient discomfort.

Zachary, DDS , Waco, TX

I never have to worry about using a dull instrument ever again!

Brandi, RDH, Bartlett, TN

I hate sharpening my own instruments. I like the fact that when I send them back to Nordent they will be sharpened properly and they will be checked for any weakness in the tips and handles. Also time is a big factor. I don’t always have enough time to devote to trying to sharpen my instruments between patients. Sharp instruments are a very important component to my overall physical health and well being too. They help me be more ergonomic when I am working on my patients and help me avoid injury to myself and patients.

Carla, RDH , Fort Worth, TX

The hygienists in the office always have sharp instruments. Easier on them and our patients.

Peter, DDS , Peotone, IL

It makes scaling and planing so much more efficient and less fatigue on hands. Nordent are the best scalers I have used and I have been a hygienist for 25 years!

Dr. Richard A. Heide, DDS, Eastchester, NY

Several times a year all our instruments are sharpened correctly, and one instrument is not missed or forgotten if staff is sharpening in the office. Your service is quick, efficient, and makes aware of instruments that need replacements or repair.

Jason, DDS , Crowley, TX

My hygienists are busy treating patients. I don’t want their time spent sharpening instruments. Nordent’s program returns our instruments professionally sharpened like new usually 1 week from the day that I drop them with UPS. Keeping the hygienists happy makes my life easier. Thanks!

Dr. Philip , Joliet, IL

My instruments last longer and perform better than when I hand sharpened. I’m also more comfortable knowing that someone has inspected the instruments.

Melinda, RDH, Greensburg, PA

It makes my work experience superior! Sharp instruments = Improved patient comfort!

Andrea, RDH, Rome, GA

It gives me piece of mind that our instruments are being sharpened and maintained correctly. Also, in a busy practice, who actually has time to sharpen?! We send them off on our breaks. Whenever we’ve had an issue the with order or the timely return, the staff has always given 100% to help us out.

Breann, RDH, Columbus, IN

Our office loves this program! We never took enough time to sharpen because of our busy schedules. Plus we know they’re being sharpened by professionals! The turnaround is super fast and when we get them back they’re super sharp!! Nothing better than scaling with instruments that feel NEW!

Holly, RDH, Weirton, WV

They provide us with the guarantee to work with sharp instruments while using their brand. They have a quick week turnaround time so we are never left without instruments for a long period of time. It’s always nice to see a company stand behind their products.

Victoria, RDH, Charlotte, NC

The process is so simple. I just box my sterile instruments and send them in. The box and shipping label are always provided and turnaround time is nothing! Being able to depend on someone else takes a big weight off of the hygienists in our office. We don’t have to set aside valuable patient time and our instruments are always sharp for efficient scaling.

Cassandra, RDH, Bowling Green, KY

Being able to keep our hygiene instruments sharp is imperative. It’s impossible to be an effective hygienist with a dull instrument. I highly recommend your instruments specifically, Xdura, to every dental office. I will never use any other brand between the cost, time needed between sharpening and your free sharpening service. Nordent is by far better than any other brand of instruments on the market.

Leesa Engel, RDH, Wyckoff, NJ

We love the convenience! Being part of a busy dental practice doesn’t allow much time for sharpening, but we realize we are more efficient when the hygienists have sharp instruments. Nordent has allowed us to be better hygienists.

Kari Mills, RDH, Port Huron, MI

We were very impressed with how quick and efficient our instruments were sharpened and returned back to our office. The customer service has been excellent with answering all our questions. Thank you!

Allison Bedeman, RDH, Bay Village, OH

It standardizes how they are sharpened for all hygienists and takes away the guesswork. It’s nice to know the job is being handled and handles correctly. Also, we just use the sickles and the curettes from your company.

Nikki Turnbull, RDH, Lincolnton, GA

I truly don’t like to sharpen my hygiene instruments. This program is so convenient and the sharpening is perfect. They are shipped back after the sharpening! It’s great.

Denise Forlano, RDH, Manalapan Township, NJ

I absolutely love this program. Sharpening instruments for me was such a hassle. I would usually end up changing the shape of the instrument, which then led to buying new instruments. It is so nice to send instruments off and they come back sharp. Thank you so much for this program.

April Knight, RDH, Barnesville, GA
