Conclusion

With a review from 37 evaluation team members and used on 270 patients, The Lubricoat by Dux Dental was a pleasant surprise to most patients. Used before most dental procedures, this was cleaner than Vaseline or Vitamin E Oil. While about half liked the mint smell, the other half said it would be nice to have a variety of scents and flavors. One dentist commented that it was intimating due to the pink shade to his male patients. Most felt it stayed in placed for lengthy procedures but wanted to have a better application and not use cotton swabs for placement. All said it didn’t stick to their gloves. One dental assistant used it for rubber dam placement to help with stretching over the clamp. Several evaluators said they used vaseline in their practice but after the evaluation, would switch and continue to order the Lubricoat.
