Below, I'm going to list many of the tools I use for surgery. The dental tax on these items can be HEFTY. Consider these options if you'd like. If you'd like more info on PRF training, I HIGHLY recommend checking out the free training released by Dr. Russell Kirk OMFS (http://dental-learning-lab.thinkific.com/).
I don't necessarily own these specific products. I tried to find items that were most akin to those that I do use, as some are discontinued.
