  • GC EUROPE has finished creating its world-wide website for GC Initial. The website not only covers the uniformity in colour, technique, aesthetics and packaging between the different systems, it also concentrates on each individual system, giving each line its own detailed webpage, containing different sections, which GC believes to be of interest to the dental professional. The GC Initial world-wide website will be a dynamic site, being updated on a very regular basis, as it should become an information platform for GC Initial users world-wide.
