The First True, Direct LED Light in the U.S. is Now New & Improved
Conversion Kits are Available for competitive lights as well as Existing Users for a Simple and Easy Upgrade
We are pleased to announce that our popular EverLight® LED operatory light is now enhanced with brighter illumination for a more productive experience. Conversion kits are available for competitive lights as well as existing users of the original EverLight for a quick and easy upgrade.
Specifically, the EverLight’s intensity settings are now increased for an even brighter illumination:
- Low setting – has been increased from 8,000 LUX to 15,000 LUX
- Medium setting – has been increased from 15,000 LUX to 25,000 LUX
- High setting – has been increased from 25,00 LUX to 30,000 LUX
The EverLight’s procedural settings have also been enhanced for a clearer, whiter light:
- The “A Sun” color match setting has been increased from 5,300 Kelvin to 5,800 Kelvin
- The “B Sun/Bulb” operative setting has been increased from 4,300 Kelvin to 4500 Kelvin
An alternative to halogen-based operatory lights, the EverLight LED operatory light provides color-corrected lighting, precise light pattern and energy efficient features simply not possible using traditional halogen lighting. The EverLight encompasses a long life of 30,000-plus hours, 10 times longer than halogen; therefore, there no longer is a need for replacement of lightbulbs. Moreover, dental professionals will enjoy substantial savings on monthly energy expenses, as the EverLight uses less than 35 watts of energy; 70% less than halogen-based systems.
No reflector or fan is required for the ultra-quiet EverLight, since it is 100% true direct LED lighting and remains at a consistent, cool temperature.
The EverLight is equipped with nine temperature/intensity settings to meet all operative needs. Its superior LED technology provides natural daylight illumination and a precise light pattern, which results in clear oral cavity visibility and exact color matching. Furthermore, the EverLight’s LED composite setting will not cause pre-maturing on composite materials.
The innovative design of the EverLight is ergonomically equipped with a standard third-axis rotation, allowing limitless positioning for optimal illumination. Moreover, the EverLight is easily installed in six mounting configurations.
The EverLight has an extended life expectancy and comes with a best in its class 3-year warranty combined with a 6-year warranty on the unit’s engine components (switches, LED driver, and lens).

Today, there are over 2.4 billion Internet users worldwide and with the skyrocketing demand for smartphone and tablets; the Internet is in the palms of 1.1 billion smartphone subscribers.

We’re excited to announce that Oral Cancer Awareness Month featured a number of successful oral cancer screening events. One particular group, MOLAR, located in Maricopa County, Arizona held multiple screening events that actually uncovered 10 suspicious lesions. MOLAR is comprised of a dedicated group of concerned providers and social service agencies working to provide greater access to oral health care for local residents. Without these cancer screening events, those suspicious lesions could have gone undetected and may have led to something worse.
We were glad to be able to contribute to the following events by either having a DentalEZ representative present or providing our Identafi oral cancer screening device for use by the hosting clinicians:
April 3rd Nassau County Police
April 4th Casa de Palmas Renaissance, Texas
April 6th UPenn Philly Oral Cancer Walk
April 13th Eagle Pointe Family Dentistry & Orthodontics
April 19th New York State Academy of General Dentistry
April 22nd National Oral Health Fair Huntsville, AL
April 26-27th Dr. Convissor’s Full Spectrum Seminar
April 26th Total Health Care Seminar
April 27th TN Dental Hygienists’ Association 84th Annual Session
Needless to say, there were a lot of fantastic events in April, and we were proud to be a part of the push for early detection. Did you host an event? Let us know how it went by leaving a comment below!

Dental Product Shopper (DPS), a great resource for dental professionals researching product information and making purchasing decisions, has recently added a new, handy “review” feature to their website. The option to review a product on DPS is similar to what consumers typically see on sites like Amazon.com or other online stores. Visitors of www.dentalproductshopper.com now have the option to leave their own review of a product, or simply read reviews that others have shared on the site.
Peer evaluations and colleague recommendations are very important and often considered while making new purchases, so we believe this is going to be a wonderful tool for dental professionals!
Test this new feature by reviewing one of DentalEZ Group’s products! Simply click here, hover your mouse over your product of choice, and select “review this product” to submit your product review!
As Oral Cancer Screening Awareness month comes to a close, I’d like to share a few dental hygiene-related articles that highlight some ways to keep the importance of screening prevalent throughout the year. Two great articles appeared in the March issue of RDH Magazine. The first article, Discussing Oral Cancer Risks by Lory Laughter, RDH, BS, covers how you should discuss the risks of oral cancer with your patients. Laughter also included information regarding where to locate online tools for patient education and communication skills.
The second article was written by Nicole Giesey, RDH, BSDH, MSPTE, and is titled Oral cancer screening update: Targets, Techniques, and Technology Help Ensure Compliance with Screening Protocols. Giesey explains how oral cancer screening technology should be a part of your everyday routine, and that every adult and young adult patient should be screened. She discusses patient education, the need for both visual/tactile examination and screening using technology, and the differences in the technologies of the various adjunctive screening devices.
We recommend you definitely check out these two articles, and keep oral cancer awareness top of mind even after the official awareness month comes to an end! You can also learn more about the technology in our Identafi Oral Cancer Screening Device from StarDental on Identafi.net.
Dental Oncology Professionals of North Texas recently held an oral cancer screening event using StarDental’s Identafi Oral Cancer Screening device. Noberto Diaz, Public Relationship Manager for Dental Oncology Professionals of North Texas, gave us the following recap:
“We had a wonderful time this past Saturday with our friends from Support for People with Oral and Head and Neck Cancer (SPOHNC) in North Texas. Dr. Abbott and his staff were able to screen over 25 of the nearly 60 people in attendance. Each patient received a tutorial on the Identafi device and the benefits of having a yearly screening.
Event attendees were also treated to a complimentary tasting of recipes from Eat to Defeat Cancer™, an evidence-based, global campaign to crush the cancer epidemic by getting people to eat foods that starve cancer.
Dental Oncology Professionals featured displays and literature from various organizations that promote awareness of oral and head and neck cancer. We welcomed the DentalEZ Group, Oral Cancer Foundation, Head and Neck Cancer Alliance, and the Baylor Health Care System.
The screening day was a great opportunity to continue to generate awareness of oral and head and neck cancer in North Texas, while allowing survivors, patients and their families the chance to support and celebrate their individual journey.”
Have you held an oral cancer screening event? If so, we’d love to hear your event stories and how you’ve help increase oral cancer awareness!
