Working with Outer Reef Technologies gave us a huge competitive advantage. They developed the most powerful Lithium battery LED whitening light in the market using their incredible firmware and electronics knowledge. They also came up with the idea and engineering chops to add an automated timer to the whitening light which is amazing feature for our customers.
