 *Dental Advisor Independent Report available upon request.

DentalEZ® recently donated a full shipment of dental supplies and equipment to Project Chimps, a rescue organization dedicated to the lifetime sanctuary care of hundreds of captive chimpanzees. Specifically, DentalEZ donated various dental products, and operatory and utility room equipment to Project Chimps’ new northern Georgia sanctuary including NevinLabs™ steel cabinets, DentalEZ® delivery units and operatory lights, StarDental® handpieces, and RAMVAC vacuums and compressors. The new dental facility will now have all components needed for complete and optimal dental care of the rescued animals.



Peter Volk, Territory Sales Manager for DentalEZ is heading the mission along with Southern Region Manager, Chuck Seeger, and Jason Hodkowski, Senior Institutional Sales Manager. The team is currently working with the company to create the dental facility. “It is interesting because as dental professionals our focus is almost always on our human patients,” remarked Volk. “What most people don’t think about is that all of the animals that they only see on Animal Planet or at the zoo need dental care. Once in a captive environment these animals need to receive all of the preventive care that we humans are accustomed to.”

A recent transfer carried out by Project Chimps prompted the charitable donation by DentalEZ, as well as widespread national attention. Nine chimpanzees once used as research animals at the New Iberia Research Center in Louisiana were just relocated to the new Project Chimps refuge, hundreds of miles from their former home in a lab where they were used as subjects in biomedical testing.



Workers with the non-profit organization transported all nine animals and now Project Chimps sanctuary, located in Morganton, Georgia, is their new home, a sprawling preserve where over 200 chimps will eventually roam free. The 236-acre sanctuary is located along a temperate rainforest, with rolling hills and a lush, green landscape. In addition to office buildings, a full veterinary clinic, and an upscale kitchen designed by celebrity chef Rachael Ray, there are currently four "villas" that can house 10-15 chimps each, and one larger group building that can house two groups of 10-15 chimps.

“It’s a very rewarding feeling to know that we are providing the medical and dental equipment to chimps that, up to this point, have spent most if not all of their lives in a research laboratory,” continued Volk. “As a DentalEZ representative, it is important that we give back not only to the people in our community, but also to those that do not have a voice. It is our calling as dental professionals to make sure that everyone, both human and animal, are treated with the utmost care and respect.”

In 2015, all chimpanzees were designated an endangered species, marking the end of privately funded research on chimpanzees in the US. Chimps are considered the smartest primate and the closest relatives to humans, which is why the New Iberia Research Center in Louisiana has used 220 of them for medical testing.



The opening of the new Project Chimps sanctuary follows a steady shift away from controversial biomedical research on chimpanzees across the country. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) began significantly phasing out its funding of federal research on chimps in 2013, and announced the retirement of its 50 remaining chimpanzees in November 2015.

NIH also ended its research support for chimps but did not own approximately 360 remaining around the US. Now the private institutions that own them, like the New Iberia Research Center, are following suit. However, due to limited space at existing sanctuaries such as Chimp Haven in Louisiana and Save the Chimps in Florida, the creation of new refuges like Project Chimps is crucial.

Update Regarding Ruling on Amalgam Separation

Written by

As many of you know, December was supposed to be a critical month for the future of amalgam separation. On December 15th, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) communicated a final ruling under the Clean Water Act mandating “specific pretreatment standards to control discharges into publicly owned treatment works.” The new ruling requires dental facilities that are involved with either the placement or removal of dental amalgam to control amalgam waste through the use of ISO 11143-certified amalgam separators.

This ruling will be effective 30 days after it is published in the Federal Register, and the compliance date for dental practices will be in three years, the end of 2019.

It also states that a dental facility that places or removes amalgam is subjected to two best management practices to collect and recycle scrap amalgam and clean the chairside traps with non-chlorine cleanser.

 

To read more about the EPA ruling, visit this site:

http://www.dentistryiq.com/articles/2016/12/epa-issues-final-rule-requiring-dentists-to-install-amalgam-separators.html

What does this new ruling mean for DentalEZ customers?

We have a solution for this problem! The Hg5 amalgam separator that we currently offer is ISO 11143:2008 certified at greater than 99% removal efficiency.

If you want to learn more about our Hg5 Amalgam Separator, you can request the literature here.

Join Dr. Harvey Levy as he presents 2 new live CE webinars with DentalEZLearning.com this month.

The first webinar, Multi-purpose Intraoral Light for Dental and Oral Cancer Exams, takes place Tuesday, December 20th at 7:00 PM (4:00 PM PST), features the Identafi® Oral Cancer Screening Handpiece from StarDental Instruments.

This CE webinar will describe and demonstrate a long-handle multipurpose tool that utilizes amber and violet intraoral light to reveal increased vascularization in the mouth, whereby oral cancers can be differentiated from normal oral tissue. Its white light detects enamel crazes and fractures. Its intraoral light and disposable mirror retract the cheek allowing an easy oral exam in the dental operatory or off-site.   

Upon completion of this webinar, participants should be able to:
• use the white light to detect enamel fractures
• use the amber and violet light to differentiate normal from abnormal oral mucosa
• retract the cheek and perform a full oral exam with no external lighting 

The second webinar, Operatory Chairs that Make Any Operatory Wheelchair and Gurney Accessible, takes place Wednesday, December 21st at 7:00 PM (4:00 PM PST), features DentalEZ NuSimplicity™ Chairs that use our exclusive Air Glide technology.

This webinar details how the average dental operatory cannot comfortably handle a wheelchair with the fixed operatory chair as an obstacle. This is a barrier to dental care for millions of patients in wheelchairs and gurneys (W&G). Such patients deserve the equal opportunity to sit or lie comfortably while dental work is performed on them. This CE webinar will illustrate how movable operatory chairs glide to the side of the room to allow wheelchairs to be rolled right next to them, facilitating easy patient transfer into the operatory chair.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, participants should be able to:
• use one hand to glide an operatory chair to the side of the room, making plenty of space for a  wheelchair;
• learn how to slide a wheelchair alongside the operatory chair for easy patient transfer;
• appreciate how a patient can comfortably be treated in a gurney after the operatory chair is moved aside in seconds.

DentalEZ is pleased to host both CE webinars. If you’d like to sign up now, registration for the webinars is now open.

Greater New York 2016 Dental Meeting Kicks off!

Written by

The Greater New York Dental Meeting is upon us! After hosting over 54,486 attendees and over 350 scientific programs Nov 26th to Nov 30th 2016, it is once again shaping up to be one of the biggest tradeshows of the year. The show will take place at the Jacob K. Javits convention center, where dental professionals from around the country will congregate to see the latest and greatest advancements in the industry.

Along with educational opportunities, the exhibit floor is one of the biggest draws to the show. With over 700 exhibitors on the showroom floor, visitors can see and touch products for every aspect of the industry. Among those exhibits will be the DentalEZ Integrated Solutions booth, where products from RAMVAC®, StarDental®, Columbia Dentoform® and DentalEZ® Equipment will be on display.

DentalEZ introduced 2 new products this year. Have you seen the 430 Torque high-speed handpiece and the Badger LF dry vacuum?

Come visit DentalEZ in booth 3409 for product details & promotions. Our products will also be featured around the convention center, including the iStar Prophy Handpiece in the New Product Glass Classroom and the 430 Torque LubeFree Handpiece in the New Product and Technology Pavilion. We hope to see you at GNY!

Dr. Gordon J Christensen, a well-known and respected Prosthodontist, started the CR Foundation®, a non-profit entity, in 1976. This Foundation publishes Clinicians Report®. The idea behind CR was to fully evaluate new dental products for usefulness and effectiveness, to attempt to avoid clinical mishaps, and to assist dental professionals in making more informed decisions when purchasing new products.  Over the last 40 years, the Clinicians Report has gained respect and notoriety for the accurate and detailed information of the dental products that it has evaluated.  Much in the same way that the Clinicians Report publication educates clinicians, the CR Foundation also offers multiple CE courses every year.

The October 2016 issue of Clinicians Report contains an article about studies and that bring to light reported issues among dental professionals’ use of lubricated handpieces. These studies looked into the effects of lubricant oil spray on many different types of dental treatments, and how it interferes with dental bonding, sterilization, and how it can contaminate surgical areas. The article also recommends solutions for avoiding oil contamination, including use of non-lubricated handpieces to completely eliminate any chance of oil contamination.

The report states: “Lubricated handpieces and attachments expel oil onto oral surfaces during use and potentially interfere with restoring materials and contaminate surgical sites. Oil contamination can be eliminated using lube-free handpieces.”

StarDental® Instruments was the first, and is the leading manufacturer of dental handpieces which do not require lubrication. Our LubeFree line is a great way to eliminate any chance of oil contamination. Plus you can save hundreds of dollars in maintenance costs. StarDental offers many High-Speed, Low-Speed and Hygiene Handpieces that do not require lubrication. Click on the link below to learn more about these LubeFree products.

StarDental® LubeFree High-Speed Handpieces

StarDental® LubeFree Low-Speed Handpieces

StarDental® LubeFree Prophy Star® 3 Hygiene Handpiece

Beyond the J-Chair

Written by

With the J-Family of chairs ending its era, the NuSimplicity will headline the DentalEZ Equipment line-up. Launched in 2013, the ergonomic design of the NuSimplicity provides unparalleled features that allow the dental professional to freely maneuver while keeping patients calm and relaxed with its comfortable design. The narrow tapered chair back allows the patient to be reclined close to the operator’s knees, eliminating problematic reaching and twisting, and providing optimum access to the oral cavity. The base plate design of the NuSimplicity allows closer placement of operator stools to provide superior access to the patient. 

Dual location touch pad controls are conveniently located on both sides of the upper backrest providing dental professionals easy access without the need to stretch or reach. Dual touch pad controls come standard with the option to add a wireless foot control, unit-mounted touch pad or remote wireless touch pad.

In addition, the NuSimplicity is simple to operate and has advanced features while remaining economical and affordable:

  • Simple chair controls include auto return, last position, 3 preset controls and manual settings
  • Durable armrests drop down on both sides allowing easy patient entry and exit
  • Wide cantilever base design provides easy routing of tubing and wires, while the slim profile provides a clean and uncluttered environment
  • Optional air glide feature can be added to the chair

The NuSimplicity is quiet and has smooth hydraulic movements that help keep the dental professional focused and patients more relaxed. It has 60 degrees of rotation, and height flexibility from 15” to 35.5” to accommodate both sit-down and stand-up dentistry and ensure comfort for dentists of any stature.

An amazing feature that the NuSimplicity chair has is the DentalEZ exclusive air glide. It gives you the ability to move the chair with the patient seated with only the touch of a finger! No other chair in the industry has this versatility. For more information on the NuSimplicity and all DentalEZ offerings, please call 866-DTE-INFO or visit www.DentalEZ.com/Nu to request a demo.
