iStar™ helps residents near San Luis Potosi

Written by

Now in their sixteenth year, First Baptist Church of Cobden, IL, has traveled once again to central Mexico to provide dental and vision services. Taking a team of volunteers which included dental hygiene students from Southern Illinois University Dental Hygiene Program, the volunteers provided preventive dental services - debridements, sealants and fluoride varnish for the residents in four villages near San Luis Potosi.

Accompanying the volunteers to Mexico was the iStar Cordless Prophy Handpiece from StarDental®. With the team members seeing close to 50 patients a day, the iStar's portability and low maintenance kept procedures moving. A special thanks to Sherri M Lukes, RDH, MS, FAADH, for sharing this story and using the iStar! To learn more about the iStar and to request a demo, please visit: DentalEZ.com/iStar.

We are very proud to be apart of causes that improve oral and overall health. If you know of any other great efforts to improve oral health, please share below!

Solving Health Care with Oral Health

Written by

It's common knowledge that health care is one of the largest expenditures of the United States economy. Whether you're healthy or not, it's an expensive price tag on treatment and preventative care. Thinking creatively to slash this health care price, the Dental Trade Alliance recently published a study showcasing an unexpected strategy in which oral health can save billions in health care.

Oral Health is linked to our overall health in many different ways. Oral infections can spread throughout the body, and diabetes is proven to worsen with the presence of gum disease. Poor oral health even stirs complications in pregnancy and lung disease.

To spread the word about this Study, the Dental Trade Alliance launched the Oral Healthcare Can't Wait campaign. Within this detailed campaign, the Dental Trade Alliance breaks down the statistics and presents a persuading approach to better individual health and health care. Because of the importance of oral health to overall health, DTA has built a conclusion that if every American had a dental appointment every year, the overall health of the nation would improve resulting in lower expenses for health care.

KidsSmiles UnBall 2016

Written by

DentalEZ is happy to share our continued support for Kids Smiles. We are very proud of what Kids Smiles has accomplished and are honored to be supporters along the way.

Kids Smiles provides dental services to more than 18,000 uninsured children each year. Opening their first center in Southwest Philadelphia in 2001, Kids Smiles grew to a second center in West Philadelphia in 2005, a third center in Washington, DC in 2010, and a brand new Washington, DC center opening soon. We would like to congratulate them on their continued success!

Their model of education empowers children by teaching them at a young age the importance of oral hygiene and the dangers of tobacco. Even going a step further, Kids Smiles helps families apply for various state insurance programs and provides the parents with reports of their child's dental screenings.

You can help too!

The UnBall is an annual event, but you don't have to get dressed up for it! It's all about donating the money you would spend on a “night out” to help children get the oral care they need. It’s a great cause that we’re happy to sponsor. Join us in helping kids in need of oral care by donating today!

To R.S.V.P for this special “non-event” make a donation to Kids Smiles. Find out how.

CDA Anaheim Recap

Written by

What an exciting event for DentalEZ®! At CDA Anaheim, DentalEZ launched two new products, the Badger LF by RAMVAC® Utility and the 430 Torque by StarDental® Instruments. We have been hard at work, testing and researching, to bring you these new products.

We did manage to take a brief break and enjoy the beauty of Southern California: perfect weather, sunshine, and palm trees! With so much to do around Anaheim, it's hard to stay for just business, but with our new product launches, we kept our minds focused. Editorial meetings, product giveaways, and interested customers kept us busy and on top our game throughout the show.

The 430 Torque offers 27 watts* of power – feel the difference! An independent test by The Dental Advisor shows the 430 Torque has the highest watts of power, of the handpieces tested, at 27 watts* and maximum power output. The double bucket rotor design and dual air control maximizes airflow to the turbine, allowing the 430 Torque to deliver powerful performance for every procedure.

The 430 Torque created quite a buzz at CDA Anaheim and we couldn't be any more proud of it. StarDental even offered a chance for booth attendees to win a 430 Torque! For more information about the StarDental 430 Torque or to request a demo, visit www.dentalez.com/Torque.
Download the Brochure.

The Badger LF is a dry vacuum system that is perfect for brand-new dental offices, or that easily replaces traditional water ring pumps or aging dry vacuum units. Designed for single or multiple users, the Badger LF is flexible and compact, and effortlessly connects to pre-existing plumbing, making installation a breeze. The tank and control unit are directly integrated into the Badger LF system, resulting in a small, space-saving design.

We recently introduced the latest utility room offering at CDA Anaheim. The new RAMVAC® Badger LF is an efficient, powerful, LubeFree dry vacuum system that is an alternative to traditional vacuum units, providing simple set-up and requiring minimal maintenance and space.

The Badger LF is a dry vacuum system that is perfect for brand-new dental offices, or that easily replaces traditional water ring pumps or aging dry vacuum units. Designed for single or multiple users, the Badger LF is flexible and compact, and effortlessly connects to pre-existing plumbing, making installation a breeze. The tank and control unit are directly integrated into the Badger LF system, resulting in a small, space-saving design.  

The Badger LF’s highly efficient displacement pump maintains consistent suction regardless of the number of units in use, ensuring smooth operation at all times. Moreover, the waterless vacuum system reduces costly water and sewer bills and its LubeFree operation reduces the burden of regular maintenance tasks on dentists and their staff. From multi-user group practices to budget-conscious small practices, the Badger LF is an eco-friendly choice.

The open frame design of the Badger LF provides cool unit operation and easy maintenance. There are no traps to clean or maintain and the system provides quiet operation. The Badger LF also delivers worry-free routine maintenance reminders, and is equipped with a self-diagnosing control system that alerts the user of possible mechanical issues. In addition, the Badger LF is protected by a 2 year/4,000 hour (whichever comes first) limited product warranty & 5 year/10,000 hour (whichever comes first) pump warranty. Like all RAMVAC products, the new Badger LF is exclusively manufactured in an ISO-certified facility.

The Badger LF is available in 2 models: Badger LF1 for 1-2 HVE equivalent users and the Badger LF2 for 2-3 HVE equivalent users. To schedule a Badger LF demo, please visit www.dentalez.com/BadgerLF

StarDental® introduced the newest member of the 430 high-speed handpiece family at CDA Anaheim, the 430 Torque. Available in various configurations, the 430 Torque delivers freedom of choice and unprecedented power.

Ergonomically designed with rugged 100% stainless steel construction, the 430 Torque is outfitted with an attractive satin finish, resulting in a stylish yet durable handpiece. The 430 Torque is available with or without fiber optics, and either a lubricated version or LubeFree version that provides dental practices with substantial cost and time savings.  

The 430 Torque offers 27 watts of power – feel the difference! An independent test by The Dental Advisor shows the 430 Torque has the highest watts of power, of the handpieces tested, at 27 watts* and maximum power output. The double bucket rotor design and dual air control maximizes airflow to the turbine, allowing the 430 Torque to deliver powerful performance for every procedure.

The coaxial water spray optimizes the direction of the water pressure in order to thoroughly cool the bur and flush the working area, keeping the instrument, as well as the operatory site, cool and clear. Moreover, a unique vortex washer design minimizes harmful debris and “suck back” into the housing of the handpiece, inhibiting unwanted buildup that leads to eventual turbine engine damage. 

The small head design of the 430 Torque provides superior oral accessibility and operatory field visibility, and the high power enables fast and precise removal of tooth surface and amalgam. What’s more, the low noise level of the 430 Torque reduces the possibility of auditory damage and provides a more pleasant patient experience.

The balanced design and angled head of the 430 Torque allows for a neutral wrist position, an important factor in minimizing hand fatigue. The dual beam glass design prevents shadowing in front of the bur to assure an unobstructed, clear view regardless of handpiece positioning or lighting.
