Happy Valentine’s Day! We love all our customers and can’t wait to see them next week at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting. We also love our brands, including the latest addition to our family, Forest Dental. Stop by Booth #1411 to learn more about DentalEZ Integrated Solutions including the latest Forest Dental operatory equipment.

From our RAMVAC® brand, we are proud to present an update to our Osprey Compressors and Master Water Control valves. This spring, the Osprey SMART model compressors are being built with the option of running in high pressure mode for compatibility with most milling machines: 

  •  High pressure mode allows the compressor to operate in the range of 105-130 PSI
  • Easily convert back & forth from standard to high pressure with the touch of a finger 

Our new Master Water Control valve, filters and controls the water supply line into the office, making it easy to shut off the water supply to the suite and safeguard against leaks:

  • For use on new or existing installations
  • Easy ordering & stocking with 3 model options
  • Integrated tool for filter removal and bypass valve
  • Integrated LED filter timer w/ reset functionality

Our Columbia Dentoform® brand continues to innovate teaching solutions for dentistry with the introduction of True Caries Teeth. Unlike painted caries, the True Caries Teeth have a sticky, rubbery feel, providing a very tactical sensation and response for the student which allows for removal by a curette.

Schedule time to stop by and feel the difference! We would love for you to mark your calendars and stop by Booth #1411, Thursday 2/21-Saturday 2/23. You can also visit us during Lab Day, Friday 2/22 & Saturday 2/23, at the Riverside Exhibit Hall of the Hyatt Regency Chicago, Booth #M19 to see our NevinLabs workstations and discuss how we can customize workstations for your school, lab or government facility.

We can’t wait to see everyone next week!

National Toothache Day

Written by

Saturday, February 9th is National Toothache Day.

You know the signs.
Are patients complaining of a painful tooth that is made worse when eating hot, cold or sugary drinks? There may be discoloration or holes present on the affected tooth, which may cause annoying impaction of small food pieces. If the tooth has become infected, the patient’s face may appear swollen on the affected side.

You know the reason.
Odontalgia is our industry term for toothache pain generating from a tooth or multiple teeth. A toothache can make us miserable, making it difficult to eat, sleep or sometimes even talk. Since toothaches are never pleasant, celebrating National Toothache Day is an oxymoron, but there are ways you can celebrate toothache-free days by reminding patients to give their teeth and oral health attention on this day.

You know the solution.
Maintaining good oral health is the most important step to keep painful toothaches away along with avoiding sugary foods. So, remind everyone to make an appointment with their dentist to celebrate National Toothache Day and resolve to brushing and flossing at least twice every day.

It's National Children's Dental Health Month!

Written by

February is National Children's Dental Health Month. Let’s support the American Dental Association (ADA) during this month-long national health observance which brings together thousands of dedicated professionals, healthcare providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers and many others.

DentalEZ Integrated Solutions supports this ongoing cause at home and abroad, as demonstrated in the India Orphanage Dental Mission. Our StarDental Hygiene products such as the iStar rechargeable Prophy Handpiece and disposable sheath, allowed dental professionals to perform cleanings, fluoride application, fillings, extraction of painful teeth, and restorative services to young patients in India.

Throughout the month, the ADA will be sharing ways for parents and kids to maintain good oral health by brushing, flossing and eating healthy. We invite you to join the Smile Builders and share your healthy tips on social media—together we can achieve healthy smiles! This year's NCDHM campaign slogan is "Brush and clean in between to build a healthy smile". Use hashtag: #NCDHM to show your support!

StarDental Donates to India Orphanage Dental Mission

Written by

Open Arms India missionOpen Arms India is an organization committed to meeting the basic needs of those abandoned in India. The organization offers shelter, food, education, clean water, medical care, and skill training. Their goal is to lift those in need to a place of self-sufficiency.

On October 20, 2018, Dr. Bill Jordan and his staff went to the Open Arms India Campus for 10 days to visit orphans who had not been seen by a dentist. He was informed by a group of R.N.s who went in 2017 to do health checks and confirmed the dental needs of 750+ orphans. Dr. Jordan reached out to DentalEZ Integrated Solutions for assistance and we were pleased to be able to help by donating StarDental products.

Dr. Jordan and his team used three (3) iStar rechargeable Prophy Handpieces, 600 disposable prophy angles, and 600 disposable sheaths to provide hygiene, cleanings, fluoride application, fillings, extraction of painful teeth, and other pain control services brought on due to infection, sealants, and restorative services to over 300 orphaned children, along with education to teachers and caregivers. The ages of the children ranged from 4 to 18 years of age.

DentalEZ to Acquire Forest Dental
Design-Forward Manufacturer to Give DentalEZ an Expanded Portfolio and Extended Reach 

Malvern, PA (December 20, 2018)—DentalEZ announced the acquisition of Forest Dental, a 45-year-old manufacturer of dental operatory equipment. Located in Hillsboro Oregon, Forest is known for its highly reliable yet simple technology. The acquisition of Forest Dental gives DentalEZ an exciting new addition to a diverse and growing portfolio of dental products. 

“We’re in a time when practices recognize the importance of elevating and enhancing the patient experience,” said Heather Trombley, President and COO of DentalEZ. “Forest Dental uses beautifully crafted design to create a fun factor for both the patient and the staff. But the brilliance of their design extends well beyond the esthetic. Their products embody the design idea of simplicity, no more or less than exactly what the customer needs.” 

The acquisition of Forest Dental allows DentalEZ to continue with its new long-term strategic goals. The complementary product offering extends the DentalEZ reach across a variety of customer segments. In addition, the companies will be able to leverage the benefits of shared supply chains and operational functions. 

Current Forest customers will have the benefit of availing themselves to the more diverse line of products available from DentalEZ. Plus, the two entities will be able to utilize a single sales team, Professional Sales Associates, that is already familiar with Forest Dental Products. 

The Forest Dental brand will continue as part of the DentalEZ portfolio of products, and the company will go to market as Forest Dental Equipment. The current Forest Dental leadership team will remain in place in Hillsboro, OR, including Hank Barton who bought Forest Dental in 2004. 

Barton’s vision—making dental equipment more exciting and esthetically appealing—has become a signature trait of Forest designs. This includes offering practices a diverse color palate, carbon fiber trims, chrome accents, contrast upholstery stitching and more. 

“It’s with great enthusiasm that we take this next step forward for Forest Dental,” said Barton. “The real beauty of this is that DentalEZ recognizes and respects what we have accomplished in the market place, and with their backing Forest can go further, faster than we ever could have alone. Everyone at Forest is excited about this next stage in our long history.”

For children, it’s the sweetest holiday but for dentist and parents alike, Halloween candy consumption can be truly horrible. Kids collect more candy in a single night than they could ever eat, so this extra loot created an opportunity to share leftover Halloween candy with others and bring a smile to their face. Across the nation, dental and orthodontic offices participate in a Halloween Candy Buyback program where children can trade in their leftover candy for cold hard cash. What happens to all that candy? The donated candy is distributed to troops all over the world, local homeless shelters, orphanages, and food banks. So, gather the kids and bring the candy you don’t want to a participating dentist office near you and get some extra cash! Giving back, is the sweetest treat of all. Happy Halloween!
