A3) There are 2 ways you can find our part number for a bur.  The first way requires you to determine the shape of your bur.  Handy pictures of all of our shapes of burs can be found here.  These pictures will tell you the shape ID (Cylindrical = SA).  Once you have the proper shape you can look in our product tables to find the dimensions and part number that match your bur.  The second way, email us the manufacturer and part number and we will cross reference it for you.

A4) Generally, orders ship within 24 hours of being placed.  Items ship Monday-Friday.  Usually within 24 hours a package can be tracked via UPS.  You can track your order right from our website.  You'll need the email at which you placed the order and your 10-digit order number that you received with your order acknowledgement to track your package.
