According to Dennis Tilles, President for the Bird-X group of companies, the ability to add space over the past several years has allowed business to expand in an orderly fashion in order to accommodate growing customer needs.

“To support our growth and new product additions, there was a necessity for additional space and now we have it,” said Tilles. “A physical space expansion has been planned and executed as we have expanded physical space externally, and have now just completed our plan for internal expansion. We should be set for the next few years.”

Posted in Coldpac, PR, Press Release


Yates-Motloid’s ColdPac Tooth Acrylic Available in Canada

Yates-Motloid’s best-known product, ColdPac Tooth Acrylic, is back in Canada.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 24, 2016

Approved once again after passing Health Canada’s new regulations for Class II Medical Devices, dental device manufacturer Yates-Motloid is proud to announce that its best known product—ColdPac Tooth Acrylic—is now available to Canadian clients.

David Goldshaw, LBIST BDT, Canadian representative for Yates-Motloid, remarks, “ColdPac is the only material I would consider now. In this world of self-mix cartridges, there's so much waste and expense—ColdPac gives me an incredible, easy-to-use material at a fraction of the cost with supreme aesthetics!”

According to a Yates-Motloid press release, a clinical study by Dr. Gregory J. Tarantola, DDS, in 2013, gave the Yates-Motloid ColdPac Tooth Acrylic a stellar review.

“…There are many excellent cold-cure acrylic resins but this author prefers ColdPac by the Motloid Company,” Dr. Tarantola states in the press release. “It has an extended working time in the doughy stage, which is necessary for this technique. You have plenty of time to place the doughy acrylic into the putty matrix and to seat it precisely on the cast prior to the setting of the material. This material also has excellent color stability, which is obviously very important for longer-term provisionals.”

Yates-Motloid has been providing solutions to the dental lab market segment globally for over 50 years. All products have been developed, manufactured, tested, approved, and used by many of the leading dental schools and labs throughout the world. Yates-Motloid is ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 Certified.

Dentist describes Yates-Motloid’s ColdPac as “The Perfect Temporary Crown and Bridge Material”

Perhaps its best known signature, ColdPac Tooth Acrylic by dental company Yates Motloid was praised in Gregory J. Tarantola’s book Clinical Cases in Restorative & Reconstructive Dentistry.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 21, 2013

Representatives at the Yates Motloid dental company were pleased to read a positive professional recommendation of their ColdPac Tooth Acrylic in a clinical study by Dr. Gregory J. Tarantola, DDS.

In Chapter 3 of Dr. Tarantola’s book Clinical Cases in Restorative & Reconstructive Dentistry (2010 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.), Dr. Tarantola discusses Provisionalization (a temporary tooth fixture) in dentistry and ColdPac’s place within it:

“There are many excellent materials to use for the actual fabrication of the provisional. I prefer cold-cured methylmethacrylate acrylic resin because of its resiliency and toughness especially with longer span provisionals. It also withstands removal and recementation that is often necessary in longer-term interdisciplinary cases without fracture or other problems. There are many excellent cold-cure acrylic resins but this author prefers ColdPac by the Motloid Company… It has an extended working time in the doughy stage, which is necessary for this technique. You have plenty of time to place the doughy acrylic into the putty matrix and to seat it precisely on the cast prior to the setting of the material. This material also has excellent color stability, which is obviously very important for longer-term provisionals.”

Dr. Tarantola’s book stands alone for clinical studies; one reviewer states, “This book is essential reading for any dentist who wants to treat his/her patients comprehensively.”

Yates-Motloid’s Quality Assurance Manager Shelley Carrillo says, “It’s pretty typical for us to get positive reviews – this company has been in business for over 50 years and many of our customers have been using ColdPac for 30 years and over. Our product stands out for its high quality and extensive use history; it’s the top choice for many dentists since it holds up in clinical studies and more importantly, practice.”

ColdPac is available at yatesmotloid.com. Yates Motloid has been providing solutions to the dental lab market segment for over 50 years. All products have been developed, manufactured, tested, approved, and used by many of the leading dental schools and labs throughout the world.

NEW and Improved: Ortho Welder II

This new edition of the "All-In-One-Workhorse" is more efficient than ever.

Yates Motloid, a leader in providing high-quality dental lab solutions for over 50 years, has released a new and improved version of the Ortho Welder – aptly named the Ortho Welder II. The Ortho Welder II is referred to as the “All-In-One-Workhorse” because it has multiple uses and applications: an orthodontics welding machine, an electric solderer, and a wire annealer. It is ideal for dental labs, orthodontic labs, production labs, commercial labs, and clinics.

There are a few key features that make this dental appliance—the Ortho Welder II—an improvement over its predecessor.

NEW Product Features:

  • Larger transformer gives approximately 50% more welding power
  • Additional thermal protective overload switch for transformer
  • Ability to use remote leads to anneal or heat treat
  • Ability to combine one jaw with one remote lead
  • Available in a 110V model or a 220V model

Paul Watson – owner of Fox Valley Orthodontic Laboratory in Elgin, IL – speaks in detail about his experiences with the Ortho Welder II:

The extra power makes it much more efficient. With one little tap of the foot pedal, everything has a nice, solid hold. It’s more secure, it’s quicker and it gives me the confidence that, as long as my technique is correct, the hold will be strong  

With the new combination jaw, I no longer have to use wax or putty to hold my work in position. This cuts out a lot of steps and allows me to see exactly where all my materials are without obstruction. After using the Ortho Welder II, I would never go back to using wax or putty for welding.

Also, with remote annealing, I can have the piece on the model exactly where I want it – clip to the wire, press the button, and anneal right where it’s at. Before, you’d have to move the piece during the process, and you would lose precision. With this method, I’m able to give a much more precise fit.

Overall, the Ortho Welder II saves time – and with as much as it gets used in the lab – the cost is negligible.

By improving the product’s usability and versatility, Yates Motloid has given lab technicians and owners a considerable advantage over their competitors, allowing them to create stronger, better-fitting products, in less time.
