The name Dental Evolutions is synonymous with highest-quality restorative and esthetic dental products and services. Dental Evolutions’ trademarks represent the standards of excellence and consistent quality associated with Dental Evolutions. Dental Evolutions does not waive any right to a trademark, service mark or other intellectual property and nothing herein shall be construed to the contrary.
Proper use of Dental Evolutions’ trademarks and service marks is important.

Your use must not mislead consumers as to any Dental Evolutions sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of your company, or of Your products or services. Your use shall not discredit Dental Evolutions or any affiliated company.
The common way to set trademarks apart from other words or nouns is to capitalize the product name and use the appropriate trademark symbol and appropriate descriptor. Examples:
