Amalgam Separator Rule Reinstated

Written by

Removing mercury from the dental practice (and from the environment) is a good thing, and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is requiring dental offices to effectively manage dental amalgam discharges into sewer systems.  According to new EPA regulations, effective July 14, 2017, all dental offices must have begun the utilization of amalgam separators by July of 2020. The facilities that place or remove amalgam will be required to collect and recycle scrap amalgam, as well as clean the chair side traps with non-bleach or non-chlorine cleanser so as not to release mercury. Compliance to this updated regulation will reduce annual discharge of mercury by 5.1%, a significant reduction. Dental offices can meet this standard by using, properly operating, and maintaining a dental amalgam separator certified to achieve at least 99% reduction of total mercury.

As more information about the environmental impact of amalgam waste becomes available, the dental industry is responding with advances in its technology to capture and recycle this waste. Amalgam separators are solids collectors that capture the amalgam and remove it along with other sedimentation that flows through the dental waste stream, functioning with the use of the vacuum and the waste water flow. Building a reputation as an environmentally friendly practice can do much more than generate new patients. The better a practice’s reputation, the more talented employees you can attract, and the more loyalty you can inspire in patients. Promoting proper amalgam disposal can be included as one important aspect of your conscientious practice.

That’s why DentalEZ® Integrated Solutions offers the RAMVAC® Hg5 Amalgam Separator. This easy-to-operate and maintenance-free separator integrates well with our dry vacuum systems to reduce sludge buildup in the air-water separator tank, meaning less time and money spent on vacuum maintenance and repair. With a transparent, easy-to-change collection container that requires no tools, the Hg5 is available in multiple sizes to fit any practice and can be wall-mounted or free-standing. This separator is functional for both wet and dry vacuum sizes, is compact to save space, and has a flexible design for hard-to-fit applications. The RAMVAC Hg5 Amalgam Separator helps you meet the new EPA regulations and takes care of waste management and recycling so you don’t have to. Contact your local DentalEZ rep to learn more!

We are pleased to announce new additions to our product management team and a new strategic account management team.

Lindsay Viola has joined the DentalEZ® team as Sr. Product Line Manager, DentalEZ Equipment and RAMVAC. Lindsay comes to DentalEZ with extensive product line management and marketing experience with Air Techniques and Sirona/Denstply. Lindsay’s experience includes the development of products such as caries detection, diagnostic, and intra- and extra- oral x-ray products. Lindsay has thorough marketing experience in both upstream and downstream marketing, as well as in product launches and market research. Lindsay’s experience will provide her with the foundation for success at DentalEZ.

Also joining the DentalEZ team as StarDental® Sr. Product Line Manager is Eric Reno. Eric comes to DentalEZ with extensive product line management and marketing experience with W.L. Gore and Dupuy Synthes CMF. Eric’s experience includes work with neurosurgery products and power equipment, piezoelectric systems, and tools in the neurosurgery space. In addition, Eric is also accomplished in the development of working with the battery operated power products used in craniofacial surgeries. Eric’s immense depth of experience will help lead us to a successful future at StarDental, and play a major role in StarDental’s revitalization.

We are also pleased to announce a newly created position of National Strategic Accounts Marketing Manager as part of the Strategic Account Management (SAM)Team. This role is filled by Aggie Pennington, a DentalEZ employee of 40 years in marketing management and product management positions. DentalEZis leading the industry as a partner to dental service organizations (DSOs) through our unique SAM Team approach to customer service. Our SAM team provides a single point of contact for all DSO needs and is always available to work with your business to tailor solutions to meet your specific goals. The result is faster responses, better solutions, and more reliable service, no matter the challenge. As this new role will work very closely with sales and customer service, Aggie’s skills in direct customer relations and her knowledge of the internal processes make her the perfect choice to assume this position. 

At DentalEZ®, we pride ourselves on providing some of the best possible products in the dental industry. The StarDental® 430 Series of high-speed handpieces has been our best seller over the past several years, and each piece within this series is equipped with many innovative technologies that set them above the rest. These technologies include a ceramic bearing turbine that is harder and lighter than stainless steel; steam resistant solid glass rod fiber optics; and a small head design that improves accessibility, visibility, and speed. Overall, this series of handpieces is geared toward increasing efficiency, speed, and ease while maintaining quality and integrity.

Last year, we introduced the latest model in this line of revolutionary products, known as the 430 Torque. Ergonomically designed with a stylish satin finish, the 430 Torque delivers both power and choice to the user. An Independent Study conducted by The Dental Advisor resulted in the 430 Torque displaying the highest watts of power at 27 watts and maximum power output when compared to competing brands.

 In addition to the small head, ceramic bearing turbine, and option of fiber optics, the 430 Torque comes with several other attributes that contribute to its success. Dual air drive control produced by the double bucket rotor design maximizes airflow to the turbine and delivers powerful performance, while the unique vortex washer is designed to minimize debris “suck back” into housing and prevent damage. The unique dual beam bifurcated glass design prevents shadowing in front of the bur, and the co-axial water spray optimizes the direction of spray and water pressure, cooling the bur and flushing the operatory site. Finally, the 100% stainless steel body provides a durable instrument and ensures the long-lasting benefits of the 430 Torque.

DentalEZ Celebrates 2017 World Otter Day!

Written by

May 31st 2017 is World Otter Day.

In honor of the RAMVAC® Otter dental separation tank, DentalEZ® is celebrating World Otter Day by raising awareness about the plight of otters. Otters are being illegally hunted worldwide which is dramatically declining the population of 12 of the 13 otter species.


RAMVAC Utility, a DentalEZ Integrated Solutions brand, named a line of our lines of Dental Vacuum Tanks the “Otter Tank” because they are strong and water-tight.

Otters:

  • Strength: Otters display great power via their tails, which help propel them great distances.
  • Water-Tight: Otters have the amazing ability to close their noses and mouths to a water tight seal in order to dive deep underwater.
  • Intelligence: Otters are one of the few mammals who have learned to use tools, using rocks to pry open shellfish.

 Otter Tanks:

  • Proven strength and toughness
  • Non-corrodible advanced polymer
  • Large, clog resistant drain valve
  • Easy-access top inlet and pump connections
  • Allows multiple “tank + vacuum unit” configurations
  • Easily configured for suspended installation
  • 12" height extender available to raise drain valves
