DentalEZ® is excited to announce our supporting of Dr. Harvey Levy in his participation courses at the Utah Dental Conference. Dr. Harvey Levy is renowned in the industry for his practice of general and hospital dentistry, specifically in the special-needs market.
Organizing his participation courses into eight workstations, Dr. Levy's teaching philosophy is based on the Confucian directive: “Tell me and I will forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I will understand.” Attendees will be thrown into the thick of the action practicing best restraint practices on each other, while learning how to be more accessible to handicapped patients.
At Dr. Levy's practice in Maryland, he treats a large number of wheelchair and gurney-bound patients. For the patients who need to be transferred into a dental chair, Dr. Levy uses our J-chairs® with Air glide. The flexibility of movement allowed by Air glide creates many options for accessibility. In Dr. Levy's workshop, you will see J-chairs with Air glide sliding in action across a treatment room. Check out Air glide technology in action here.
DentalEZ will have a rep on hand at Dr. Levy's course at Utah Dental Conference to demonstrate Air glide technology and teach best practices in oral screening with Identafi. Identafi uses three different colored lights to search out any abnormal soft tissue in a person's mouth. Identafi is the most efficient way to enhance visuals of abnormalities that the naked eye might not be able to see. Learn more about Identafi.
Dr. Levy's participation workshop will be held at the Utah Dental Conference on Thursday, April 21 from 2-4pm. We hope to see you at Utah Dental Conference. Be sure to visit our booth (#523) and share your thoughts below!

Young Dental has teamed up with the Oral Cancer Foundation to launch a Classic Burgundy Petite Web Angle. Coinciding with April's Oral Cancer Awareness signature color burgundy, the Classic Petite Web Angle fits perfectly on the iStar. With hygienists being the front lines of oral cancer detection, it's a great initiative to promote awareness.
If you don't have an iStar in your practice, StarDental is currently running a promotion with Young Dental. We are offering a box of Young Angles free with the purchase of an iStar through June 30th, 2016.
Oral cancer kills nearly one person every hour of every day of the year. Of the people newly diagnosed, only about 60% will live longer than 5 years. And among those survivors, most suffer long-term problems such as severe facial disfigurement or difficulties eating and speaking. The death rate associated with oral cancer remains high due to the cancer being routinely discovered late in its development. There will be approximately 43,250 people in the U.S. diagnosed with oral cancer this year. Even worse, awareness in the public is extremely low. This is the purpose of dedicating April to Oral Cancer Awareness.
There are many parts of the oral cavity. The lips, cheek lining, gums, tongue, and throat all pertain to the oral cavity. Because of the severity of oral cancer, it is important to understand all the areas of vulnerability. HPV is the leading cause of Oral Cancer while tobacco use of any kind and heavy alcohol consumption greatly increase your risk for oral cancer. The fastest growing segment of oral cancer patients is young healthy non-smoking individuals due to the connection to the HPV virus. Poor diet lacking fruits and vegetables can also lead to oral cancer contraction, while long exposure to the sun puts your lips at risk. Oral cancer is not just limited to the people living these lifestyles. It can happen to anyone, even the healthiest adults.
Oral screening is the best way to combat oral cancer. Performed by a dentist or primary care physician, oral screening is quick and painless. Traditionally done with gauze or air syringes, new technologies such as the Identafi have made oral screening quicker and more accurate. Utilizing Multi-Spectral Fluorescence and Reflectance technology, Identafi enhances visuals of abnormalities in the mouth that may not be seen with the naked eye.
Identafi by StarDental
The Identafi uses white, violet, and amber wavelengths of light to excite oral tissue in distinct and unique ways. As a result, biochemical changes can be monitored with fluorescence, while morphological changes can be monitored with reflectance. The combined system of fluorescence and reflectance uses the body's natural tissue properties as an adjunctive tool for oral mucosal examination. Conventional examination of tissue is performed using a highly concentrated white light.
Wearing reusable Identafi filtered eyewear to enhance visual effects and allow transmission of reflected light, the health professional then switches to violet for a second observation. The clinician's photosensitive glasses block the violet excitation light and allow the observance of the tissues natural fluorescence. Violet light enhances normal tissue's natural fluorescence; however, suspicious tissue appears dark because of its loss of fluorescence.
When suspect abnormalities are present the selector is switched to amber light, which enhances normal tissue's reflectance properties so the clinician may directly observe the difference between normal and abnormal tissue's vasculature. This independent view of vascular architecture may assist in the assessment of confounders when screening for oral cancer.
Studies indicate abnormal tissue has a diffuse vasculature, where normal tissue vasculature is clearly defined. The combination of all three Multi-Spectral wavelengths provides the clinician with more visual information, improved results over direct visual exam alone and increased confidence for recommending biopsies.

Recognized internationally every March 20th, World Oral Health Day (WOHD) is a day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth. Because 90% of the world’s population will suffer from oral diseases in their lifetime, it’s important to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health and hygiene.
Many of these diseases can be avoided with increased governmental, health association, and society support for funding of prevention, detection, and treatment programs. In addition to its core message of awareness, World Oral Health Day offers the dental and oral health community a platform to take action and help reduce the overall disease burden.
WOHD 2016 aims to get everyone to recognize the impact their oral health has on overall physical health and wellbeing to help inspire this change. “It all starts here. Healthy mouth. Healthy body.”
