40 students from the I-LEAD Charter School came to the StarDental/Columbia Dentoform Lancaster manufacturing facility this past Wednesday to see firsthand how handpieces, manikins and Ivorine teeth are made. This is the first time these students have visited the facility, but it’s not their first interaction with products from DentalEZ Integrated Solutions. Back in January, DentalEZ donated 30 models, benches and additional supplies to the I-LEAD Charter School to help support their growing Dental Assistant Certificate Program (DACP). The DACP, which began in 2013, is designed to give students the training they need to get a head start in creating a career in the dental industry.
[I-LEAD students ready to tour the facility]
Upon arrival, selfies in safety glasses were the first impromptu event of the tour. Once students were instructed on proper safety procedures, they were split into three smaller groups to tour different areas of the facility. The first group went with Anne Rummel, Production Manager at StarDental, to witness the creation of handpieces from start to finish. Fred Howery, Columbia Dentoform Production Manager, walked the second group through the process of creating Ivorine teeth, from melamine powder and injection molding to the final stages of hand finishing each tooth. I-LEAD students took note of the differences between the teeth on the production line and the teeth they’re accustomed to working with at their school on a daily basis. The third group saw the complete production of dental heads and manikins. After the tours concluded, a Q&A session followed and of course, a visit wouldn’t be complete without everyone getting a goody bag.
[Manikins and Ivorine teeth displays]
The experience was a learning opportunity for DentalEZ too. “The students from I-LEAD were surprised by the cleanliness of the manufacturing facility. When people think of manufacturing, they sometimes think back to the facilities of years gone by. Not only have today’s technology innovations, as well as better regulations, improved manufacturing standards, but DentalEZ’s dedication to workplace safety and comfort keeps our sites clean, friendly and safe places to work” explained Amanda Wirls, HR Supervisor for DentalEZ.
DentalEZ is proud to support a school dedicated to training our future dental professionals. Learn more about I-LEAD and the DACP.
New Look Unveiled During the 2015 Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting
Malvern, PA (March 17, 2015) – DentalEZ®, a supplier of integrated products and services for dental health professionals worldwide, is pleased to introduce various updates to its classic DentalEZ brand. With an official tagline of “Integrated Solutions,” and now simply referred to as “DentalEZ,” the Company unveiled some of its recent rebranding efforts such as a new color palette, logo, and a freshly designed exhibit booth at this year’s Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting.
With the acquisition of various new companies and products throughout the years, DentalEZ has established a diverse yet very broad assortment of products. The company’s current rebranding efforts will ensure that its entire portfolio is streamlined in order to tell a clear story about its ever-growing product offerings and organization.
Throughout 2015, DentalEZ will begin to slowly phase out the use of individual brand logos and introduce a single all-encompassing DentalEZ logo. All DentalEZ product categories will also be more consistent with the new DentalEZ name and tagline:
Columbia Dentoform® Teaching Solutions
DentalEZ® Equipment Solutions
NevinLabs™ Workstation Solutions
RAMVAC® Utility Solutions
StarDental® Instrument Solutions
“With this more unified and simplistic approach to branding, we plan to increase clarity of what our company offerings are, while raising awareness and understanding across all product lines of DentalEZ and our many ‘Integrated Solutions,’” remarked Lisa Lee, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “In the next year we will have gradual updates of all materials, websites, and signage. We truly look forward to an exciting new era here at DentalEZ.”
With three great events in Chicago next week, we wanted to let you know where you can find us!

Our newly constructed booth will make its public debut at CMW. Designed to have a modern and open feel, the booth makes it even easier for our integrated products to take center stage. Product lines will be showcased within two staged operatory rooms, a utility room, and both handpiece and Dentoform displays.
The booth isn’t the only thing that’s new. Attendees will also get to know our new cabinetry line, see the latest innovation in amalgam separation, and have a chance to get hands-on with TruSim™. The ergonomically designed TruSim™ unit simulates 2-handed and 4-handed dentistry and left/right adjustment without any tools, providing students with the best preparation for the clinic and dental practice.
In addition to sharing our latest product innovations, we’re also thrilled to sponsor the lecture of Dr. Jonathan A. Bregman, DDS, FAGD as he talks dentist to dentist about early oral cancer detection, with a focus on using the Identafi Oral Cancer Screening Device.
