Dental Economics recently featured an article on the future of the dental lab industry by Steven Pigliacelli that anyone in the industry should find interesting. Dr. Pigliacelli points out how advances in technology in the industry are changing the landscape of dental labs available to practitioners. He adds that the gradual disappearance of smaller dental labs is largely due to this new technology.
“Small labs, staffed by five people or fewer, will likely be unable to purchase the necessary traditional products or new technology and will certainly not be able to compete financially with the larger labs,” says Pigliacell. He also points out that the quality output practitioners are used to receiving is now a realistic capability of the larger labs that can afford the new technology, so the prediction is anything but bleak.
The article entitled The Future of the Dental Lab Industry: The lab industry ain’t never gonna be the same is a noteworthy read for both dental practitioners and lab industry professionals alike. Check it out and feel free to add a comment below!

Have you seen the article in MENTOR on DentalEZ VP of sales and marketing Lisa Lee? Lisa was featured in the publication’s “closing pitch” section in June, and gives her insight on working in the industry as well as on DentalEZ Integrated Solutions itself.
One of the topics covered is tying brand diversity together within DentalEZ Integrated Solutions.

The DentalEZ line includes a collective group of product options designed to offer quality, value, and convenience. The individual lines further position our company to provide absolutely everything needed in the operatory.” (MENTOR June 2015; 6(6):42)

Over 140 dental professionals from throughout the states of New York and California attended the two most recent oral cancer seminars presented by DentalEZ and Henry Schein. The continuing education programs not only highlighted the benefits of incorporating the StarDental® Identafi® into a sustainable profit center for dental practices, but also covered the treatment journey for patients beyond the oral cancer diagnosis. The lectures covered the current state of oral cancer and how the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is shifting the demographic of the diagnosis population. Attendees also received in-depth information on how the Identafi can become the key piece in developing a cause-related marketing platform to develop partnerships with medical groups and non-profit organizations to better help patients every day.
The Oral Cancer Foundation, in its continued partnership with Henry Schein and DentalEZ, offered attendees goodie bags filled with patient-based literature, screening tips, and deliverables to help dental professionals generate awareness for oral cancer year-round. The Oral Cancer: From Screening to Survivorship lecture series continues as Dr. Abbott heads to Sacramento, CA on July 17, 2015. For more information on upcoming oral cancer seminars, check out www.henryscheineventconnect.com.
Dennis M. Abbott is the Founder and CEO of Dental Oncology Professionals, an oral medicine practice dedicated to meeting the unique oral health needs of patients with cancer. For more information on Dr. Abbott, visit www.drdennisabbott.com.
Saturday’s Healthy Mouth Movement from the Aspen Dental network was planned to provide the benefit of free dental care to our veterans, and that’s exactly what it did. From simple exams to repairing chipped teeth and filling cavities, Aspen’s volunteering dental professionals provided much needed service to one of the country’s most valuable assets.
Since the movement’s inception in January of 2014, Aspen’s dental professionals associated with events like these put in an extra day’s work to provide care to over 3000 veterans in 31 different states, with more than 300 locations participating.
In total, the Aspen Dental Network has provided an estimated $1 million in free dental healthcare through limited exams, as a single visit to a dental professional may not be enough to bring some of the participants up to an adequate level of dental health.
Aspen Dental Office Manager Samantha Bush defined the nature of these visits. “We bring them in and take care of their main concerns. If they're in pain we definitely want to get them out of pain. If they have a filling that needs to be done, we want to take care of that filling," she told 41NBC’s Elaine Rackley.
While subsequent visits were needed for some of the more extreme cases, the primary goals of tending to patients’ primary issues and easing pain was a largely successful (and very well received) venture.
So as we thank our veterans for valiantly serving our country, perhaps we should take a second to tip our caps to the good people of Aspen Dental as well for going out of their way to serve them.
During the week of May 18th, DentalEZ® Integrated Solutions hosted technical product training for several Schein Reps from all over the country at our Bay Minette, AL facility. Bill Paulson, Technical Service Manager, conducted training on our DentalEZ Equipment Solutions and Jeff Flesner, Technical Service Representative, was on site for RAMVAC® Utility Solutions product training. At Schein’s request, the training focused on Aspen Dental products but also touched on other current products.
DentalEZ dealer partners: we welcome you to take advantage of our technical training program. Our next session is scheduled for August 31st – September 4th and there are still seats available. Please contact Tiffany Davis at email@example.com to sign up or for more information.
In addition,Bill Paulson has put together a live online training presentation for our Wet Ring Pumps.
This training presentation is available for our dealer partner technicians, and is an inexpensive way for them to gain valuable technical knowledge of this product. Because the training is live, participants can ask questions and discuss issues that they have experienced with this product. The training will take about an hour, maybe a little longer, depending upon the amount of participation from the group.
To take advantage of this new training opportunity, contact Bill Paulson in Bay Minette at extension 3226 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s the next best thing to being there!
We recently attended the Henry Schein National Sales Meeting held at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida.
We had three booths in the exhibit space. Our equipment booth showcased our product categories with DentalEZ® Equipment Solutions and RAMVAC® Utility Solutions including our new NextGen® Sterilization Center and Amalgam HoG. Over on the merchandise side, we displayed our StarDental® Instrument Solutions including high- and low-speed handpieces. Last but not least our Identafi® Oral Cancer Screening booth consisted of an enclosed area where visitors could hear testimonials from oral cancer survivors and learn how vital early detection is in the fight against oral cancer.
Each year, Henry Schein chooses a different theme to focus the National Sales Meeting around. This year’s theme, Looking Back to the Future, gave us the chance to have a little fun as we raffled off a skateboard similar to the hoverboard Marty McFly used for most of his transportation needs (when he wasn’t in the Delorean). Our winner, Kelly Erler, a Field Sales Consultant in Orange, CA was thankful for the prize but also glad to have DentalEZ in attendance at the meeting. And we were glad to be there! It was a fun meeting and it's always great to not only educate our dealer partners on new products but also see old friends.
