Keep dental models intact

Many of the dental display models we use in practice come in two pieces and are very fragile—I've dropped and broken a few myself. Try attaching a strip of leather with small brads to act as a hinge for the two pieces. All it takes is a strip of leather (available at any craft store), a few brads, and a drill bit. I updated four dental models in 30 minutes—a lot less time than it would take to obtain new dental models. Try attaching leather strips to your dental models today.
