The IdentAlloy/IdentCeram program is a simple, no-cost way for you to document the content of restorative materials and further underscore your professionalism and commitment to the highest healthcare standards.

Dozens of today’s leading materials manufacturers and suppliers participate in the program. In each shipment to labs, they include a quantity of IdentAlloy or IdentCeram certificates attesting to the material’s source, brand and composition.

Dentists then request these certificates from their labs with every case. This gives them a document to use to confirm the case’s content, discuss its attributes with patients and file the details of that choice in patient and insurance records.

Due diligence has never been easier — or more critical

More than 18 million certificates were ordered in 2014, reflecting continually growing demand for materials verification, easier record-keeping and more effective risk management.

Materials manufacturers and suppliers qualify for the program only by agreeing to conform to rigid requirements for demonstrating  compliance with material specifications. This makes the certificates invaluable not only for labs and dentists but also for patients, insurers, legal experts, researchers and anyone else with a stake in materials quality.

Put the program’s high standards to work for you. Make sure you request the relevant IdentAlloy or IdentCeram certificate for material specified in each case.
