In addition to showcasing DentalEZ products, DHD will be running a hand tool promotion in support of Dentaid. The proceeds from all hand instruments brought from these stands during the show (up to £100k) will directly benefit Dentaid. For 21 years, Dentaid has made a difference in 70 countries to improve access to dentistry and oral health education. In 2017, Dentaid worked in Uganda, Zimbabwe, Nepal, Cambodia, Morocco and Moldova – and will continue to visit new regions. Dentaid volunteers run outreach clinics in prisons, orphanages, schools and community buildings, providing pain relieving dental care for hundreds of people in these communities every day.

Adrian Buckingham, Dental Hygienic’s MD, invites delegates to visit the stands to find out more about this cause and how to donate. “We believe this promotion at BDIA will allow DHD to provide additional assistance to Dentaid. We welcome all delegates to visit our booths and we’ll be happy to provide all the information necessary on this promotion and on the Dentaid organization, which promotes such wonderful dental care, education and outreach.”

The Lucy Hobbs Project™ 5th Annual Celebration

Written by

The Lucy Hobbs Project™ 2017 Annual Celebration is currently taking place at the Lowes Hotel in Philadelphia.

This project, started by Benco Dental, was originally inspired by Lucy Hobbs Taylor, who despite being refused admission to medical and dental schools became the first woman to earn an American degree in dentistry in 1861. While the Lucy Hobbs Project helps to empower women in dentistry, this event is open to everyone in the dental industry.

This year 6 women were recognized for their innovation and contribution to the industry.

  • Irene Marrion- Tarrazzi, DMD, MS – “Woman to Watch”
  • Margaret Ackess, RDA, CDA Med- “Innovator”
  • Andrea Joy Smith, DDS- “Clinical Expertise”
  • Winifred J. Booker, DDS- “Humanitarian”
  • Patricia L. Blanton, DDS, MS, PhD- “Industry Icon”
  • Emily Ishkanian, DMD- “Mentor”

We at DentalEZ would like to join Benco in celebrating these women and all that the Lucy Hobbs project stands for.  

We are pleased to announce that 2017 marks the 100th year of its Columbia Dentoform® Teaching Solutions product line. For over ten decades, Columbia has provided lifelike teaching models for dental, hygiene, and veterinary students around the world. 

Founded by Columbia University Engineering School graduate Ben Spitzer, the Company had its start in Manhattan, New York. Initially called Columbia Dental and X-Ray Company, the Company originally provided x-ray equipment for dental offices. In 1917, it added metal typodonts to its product offerings but shortly after, discontinued the x-ray equipment to focus exclusively on the dental models. Columbia’s first typodont clients were located in local New York dental schools, and today, 100 years later, Columbia Dentoform products are sold to teaching institutions around the world. 

“We are extremely proud of Columbia’s rich history that has diligently served the unique requirements of dental institutions and students for over 100 years,” remarked Bob Senesac, Sr. Director of Marketing for DentalEZ. “Shortly after its inception, Columbia quickly evolved into a Company that focused on producing quality, lifelike teaching models, while simultaneously improving the instructional process and learning experience for all dental students. We expect to continue to adhere to these principles during the next 100 years.”

Focused on all dental and hygiene students, all Columbia typodont models are designed realistically so that students are able to practice dental and hygiene procedures as though they are working in an actual oral cavity, thoroughly preparing them for real-life practice. Columbia offers standard models and teeth for nearly every teaching situation but also takes pride in customizing unique solutions for all types of teaching institutions including specialty areas such as orthodontic, pediatric, and veterinary dentistry.

Moreover, Columbia also offers manikins to make student practice as realistic as possible and include adult, pediatric, and anesthesia “patients” that perfectly simulate the actual human head and mouth size. The Company even provides lifelike animal typodont models including cats and dogs for veterinary dental education. 

While its history stretches back more than a century, the Columbia brand is looking toward the future with a continuous launch of products. “We are as committed today as we were 100 years ago on establishing new industry standards for design, quality, and service to the dental industry and profession,” remarked Philip Briales, Director of Sales, Columbia Dentoform Teaching Solutions.

Oral Cancer Awareness Month is here!

Written by

April is Oral, Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Month

Oral cancer has one of the highest death rates of all cancers, killing one person every hour of every day.Of the people newly diagnosed, only about 57% will live longer than 5 years.2 This is primarily due to the fact that most oral cancers continue to be identified at a late stage.2

There were approximately 48,330 people in the U.S. diagnosed with oral cancer in 2016.3 These statistics show why spreading Oral Cancer Awareness is so important. Early detection with adjunctive screenings provides patients better protection against oral cancer. Studies show that early detection increases the 5-year survival rate for oral cancer from 32 to 83 percent.3

The Identafi® Oral Mucosal Visual Enhancement System from StarDental Instruments is a screening tool that dramatically enhances the appearance of suspicious tissue using three wavelengths of light, revealing mucosal abnormalities which may lead to oral cancer or premalignant dysplasia that may not be apparent to the naked eye during traditional screenings.

To learn more about the Identafi, and how it works hand in hand with early detection, please visit www.identafi.net

April Oral Cancer Screenings and Events

If you’re an Identafi owner providing a free oral cancer screening event during April, we want to hear from you! Please let us know in the comments below about your screenings or events. If you aren’t an Identafi user yet, purchase an Identafi Oral Mucosal Visual Enhancement System in April to save $300!

Join us in raising awareness of Oral Cancer this month and be sure to share your thoughts below!
