 Rubber Dam, West Coast vs East Coast

     I am learning to apply the {*filter*} dam and was taught that it is used
much more extensively in the west than in the east.  Any reason for this?
Is {*filter*} more expensive in the east?

In dental school (UMKC '79) we had to use it on virtually every
operative case, and absolutely every endo case.  When we graduated, many
of us strayed from these teachings for various reasons.  Speed?  Patient
perception?  Nobody else uses it?  Not very good arguments.  

Now, I'm back to extensive use of the {*filter*} dam.  I have no knowledge
of this being a geographic question.

West is more elastic. East is more freezing.
