Most dental Manufacturers sell their products and repairs through dealers. In 1982, we switched to factory-direct sales to our dentist customers.

By servicing our dentist customers directly, we can deliver superior value on our American made, award winning handpieces. With dealer markups ranging from 30-70%, each of our handpieces typically cost hundreds of dollars less compared to our leading competitors of comparable quality. 

You'll really like the convenience of dealing directly with experts on handpiece purchases and repairs. Unlike dealer sales reps that know a little about thousands of products, the Lares team knows a ton about just handpieces! And our 24 hour repair turnaraound and free shipping both ways make our repair services the best in dentistry. 

To make it easy to experience all of these Lares factory direct advantages, we've taken the risk out of giving us a try with our 30-Day Money-Back Guaruntee!

  • Chico, California.   On August 1, 2020, Lares Research will introduce the new Pastel Plus Prophy Handpiece.   The smaller, lighter new Pastel Plus is said to be a breakthrough in prophy handpiece ergonomics, and widens the company’s lead in prophy handpiece miniaturization.

    Weighing only 1.7 oz and  with a total length of just 3.9 in, the Pastel Plus is smaller and lighter than competitive models and the company’s prior Pastel model.    It is also significantly quieter, smoother, and the low pressure start minimizes splatter.

    The Pastel Plus is available in four beautiful nose colors (pink, light blue, light green and silver).  The 360 degree swivel at your fingertips allows fatigue-free maneuverability.  The Pastel Plus accepts all disposable prophy angles with an easy push-in, pull out friction grip chucking system.

    Pastel Plus is constructed of anodized aluminum and stainless steel.  The quiet running motor delivers high torque for difficult stain removal.   Pastel Plus fits any standard 4 hole hose connection.

    Featuring a single piece design to minimize handling during infection control, Pastel Plus withstands repeated autoclaving to meet CDC/OSHA requirements for between-patient heat sterilization of prophy handpieces/motors.

    Pastel Plus is economically priced and is said to cost hundreds less than the leading competitors due to the Lares factory direct distribution system.  Pastel Plus is included in the Lares Research 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee program.

    Lares Research introduced Legacy 5, dentistry’s first turbines with a 5 year warranty.   The Legacy 5 bumper to bumper warranty eliminates the expense and hassle of turbine repair charges for a full 5 years.  Legacy 5 turbines feature state of the art performance including Lares proprietary new SilentForce technology consisting of the long lasting SteelGrip chucking system and DynamicPrecision balancing for whisper quiet operation.   Legacy 5 turbines are available in two head sizes- Standard (59.9 dBA) and Mini, both with Kavo* MultiFLEX* compatible 360° swivel and optional solid rod cellular optics.
