Friday, June 12th (NY) and Friday, June 19th (CA), 2015

Over 140 dental professionals from throughout the states of New York and California attended the two most recent oral cancer seminars presented by DentalEZ and Henry Schein. The continuing education programs not only highlighted the benefits of incorporating the StarDental® Identafi® into a sustainable profit center for dental practices, but also covered the treatment journey for patients beyond the oral cancer diagnosis. The lectures covered the current state of oral cancer and how the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is shifting the demographic of the diagnosis population. Attendees also received in-depth information on how the Identafi can become the key piece in developing a cause-related marketing platform to develop partnerships with medical groups and non-profit organizations to better help patients every day. 

 

The Oral Cancer Foundation, in its continued partnership with Henry Schein and DentalEZ, offered attendees goodie bags filled with patient-based literature, screening tips, and deliverables to help dental professionals generate awareness for oral cancer year-round. The Oral Cancer: From Screening to Survivorship lecture series continues as Dr. Abbott heads to Sacramento, CA on July 17, 2015.

Henry Schein National Sales Meeting Logo

We recently attended the Henry Schein National Sales Meeting held at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida.

We had three booths in the exhibit space. Our equipment booth showcased our product categories with DentalEZ® Equipment Solutions and RAMVAC® Utility Solutions including our new NextGen® Sterilization Center and Amalgam HoG. Over on the merchandise side, we displayed our StarDental® Instrument Solutions including high- and low-speed handpieces. Last but not least our Identafi® Oral Cancer Screening booth consisted of an enclosed area where visitors could hear testimonials from oral cancer survivors and learn how vital early detection is in the fight against oral cancer.

Each year, Henry Schein chooses a different theme to focus the National Sales Meeting around. This year’s theme, Looking Back to the Future, gave us the chance to have a little fun as we raffled off a skateboard similar to the hoverboard Marty McFly used for most of his transportation needs (when he wasn’t in the Delorean). Our winner, Kelly Erler, a Field Sales Consultant in Orange, CA was thankful for the prize but also glad to have DentalEZ in attendance at the meeting. And we were glad to be there! It was a fun meeting and it's always great to not only educate our dealer partners on new products but also see old friends.

Thanks to Bill Johel from Henry Schein for this recap of another exciting screening event in honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month. The Total Wellness Day was held April 5th at Summerfield Farms in Summerfield, NC, which included free oral cancer screenings using the Identafi® from StarDental®.

The event was a great success, thanks in large part to being shared all over social media and getting great local coverage. Over 50 people were screened and had many questions as to why their dentists were not using technology such as an Identafi!

As Bill Johel commented, “Overall, this event turned out even better than we could have hoped, and proved to really give back to the local community all while raising much needed awareness for this one deadly disease that our industry deals with.”

Please comment below, how are your oral cancer screening events going this month?

FREE Oral Cancer Screening at Hinman

In a post last month, we discussed how well-received our free oral cancer screenings were at the Chicago Midwinter Meeting. We are very glad to offer them again at the Hinman Dental Meeting later this week in Atlanta, GA!

Volunteer hygienists will be performing the free screenings with our Identafi Oral Cancer Screening Device from StarDental®. The device uses a multi-spectral fluorescence and reflectance technology that employs 3 unique wavelengths of light that screen for these precancers and other suspect lesions with greater efficacy than the naked eye. Hygienists will be screening over at the Total Health Booth (#1017) from Henry Schein Dental. If you’re not currently performing adjunctive oral cancer screenings or are not familiar with the technology, make sure to stop by the booth to check it out!

You can also learn more about oral cancer screening and Identafi at www.Identafi.net, where we offer tools to help integrate oral cancer screening into your practice.

New Relationship Reflects DentalEZ Group’s and Henry Schein’s shared commitment to early screening for oral cancer Malvern, PA - September 24, 2012 – DentalEZ® Group today announced that it has signed a letter of intent to make Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC) the exclusive global distributor of the Identafi® Oral Cancer Screening Device, a product of the DentalEZ® Group’s StarDental® Division.  Henry Schein is the world’s largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, medical and animal health practitioners.  Identafi will become a core component of Henry Schein Dental's Total Health™ Beyond The Mouth initiative. The Identafi system is a small, cordless, handheld unit that is designed for use in the offices of dentists, specialists and general practitioners to screen for oral cancers and pre-cancers. Unlike other fluorescent technologies and dye systems, the multi-spectral device uses a three-wavelength optical illumination and visualization system that allows dental professionals to identify biochemical and morphological changes in cells of the mouth, throat, tongue and tonsils that are not visible to the naked eye.  The Identafi Oral Cancer Screening Device received an Editor’s Choice award from The Dental Advisor, was named as one of the “Top 100 Products of 2012” by Dentistry Today, and was selected as the Gold Winner in the dental instruments, equipment and supplies category of the 2012 Medical Design Excellence Awards competition. “We admire the active role that Henry Schein has taken to advocate for the early screening of oral cancer, as well as their proven ability to build market share for innovative products like the StarDental Identafi Oral Cancer Screening Device,” said Gordon Hagler, President and Chief Operating Officer of DentalEZ Group.  “We look forward to the prospect of working with Henry Schein exclusively to advance this important public health issue and communicate the exceptional benefits of our system to dentists around the world.” The Oral Cancer Foundation estimates that oral cancer kills one person every hour, every day in the United States, and the five-year mortality rate of oral cancer is higher than cervical cancer and prostate cancer.  However, when oral cancer is detected early, patients have a 90 percent survival rate. “The Identafi Oral Cancer Screening Device will be an exciting new addition to the industry leading solutions that we offer exclusively to our customers,” said Tim Sullivan, President of Henry Schein Dental. “Henry Schein has been dedicated to the early detection of oral cancer for many years.  We look forward to our new partnership with a renowned, worldwide dental company such as DentalEZ Group, and working together to expand our Total Health™ Beyond The Mouth initiative, which underscores our steadfast commitment to help our dental customers provide the best and most comprehensive care possible to patients,” added Mr. Sullivan. Henry Schein Dental's Total Health Beyond the Mouth initiative includes the Total Health Checklist, which, together with screening and diagnostics, assists dental professionals in assessing a patient's oral health, its impact on their total health, and uncovering health problems.
