Abstract: This study evaluated the handling of a recently introduced two bottle dentine adhesive system by a group of practice-based researchers. Twelve evaluators from the practice-based research group, the PREP Panel, were sent explanatory letters, a pack of the material under investigation, G2-Bond Universal, with a request to use it, where indicated, for 10 weeks and then to complete a questionnaire designed to elicit the evaluators’ views on the handling of the materials. In total, 568 restorations were placed. The results from the questionnaire indicated good acceptance of the material, despite the fact that it required more clinical steps than the material previously used by the evaluators.

Clinical relevance: Results from this evaluation indicate that there is a place in a majority of evaluators’ practices for a two-bottle adhesive system.
