The DH Cubed Training – Sharpening Universal Curettes, does not offer any clinical experience.  Therefore, participants should not assume competency in a clinical setting.

Hygienists all realize less pain and injury comes from properly sharpening their instruments.  Our training courseware teaches this and our products are tools to assist in training them correctly.

The training is not meant to sell or promote the product but instead is used together to meet the result of the participants learning proper technique in avoiding work related pain and injury. This training module is meant to be used in conjunction with The Cube sharpening device to perfect the skill of sharpening.
