2015 National Sales Meeting: Better Together

Written by


Most days, members of the DentalEZ® Integrated Solutions team are spread out across North America and the UK working to develop, manufacture, and bring to market the best products and service in the industry. This week, the Sales, Manufacturing, Marketing, Customer Service, and Executive groups convened in Philadelphia to reconnect, participate in training activities, learn from one another, and discuss what’s to come in 2015 at the National Sales Meeting (NSM).

Ron, James, Jim and Greg

Bill, Marian, Sharon and Mario

Fostering relationships, celebrating achievements, and focusing on strategic growth were key goals supporting the overarching theme of the weeklong meeting, Better Together. Events were primarily held at The Loews Hotel in Center City. Days filled with breakout sessions and training seminars provided opportunities to learn about product innovation, review best practices and participate in team building activities. During one evening, attendees enjoyed an Awards Dinner honoring some of the great successes of the past year. An afternoon working with The Boy and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia to build bikes for children in the local Philadelphia Chapter was one of the highlights of the week.

Phil and Peter

Darrell and Jim

In addition to breakout sessions, dinners, and philanthropic teambuilding events, off-site tours offered additional hands-on learning opportunities. A visit to Temple University offered the chance to see an array of DentalEZ custom cabinetry in use within operatory rooms and laboratories. NSM attendees also spent a morning touring the Lancaster, PA manufacturing facility where they witnessed the manufacturing process of StarDental® Instruments and Columbia Dentoform® Teaching Solutions. Sales Representatives were particularly excited to see production of Columbia Dentoform, whose operations moved to Lancaster last year.

From learning more about DentalEZ’s newer product lines to engaging in its more established relationships, the sales force and corporate team saw first-hand just how much DentalEZ has grown Better Together. Lastly, a big thank you to everyone who planned and participated in this event and everyone who has worked so hard during the past year; we look forward to keeping the momentum going throughout 2015.

StarDental® Scaler Donation

Written by

Last December, Dr. Roger Abbott of TLC Dental in Atlanta, GA made a phone call to Peter Volk, his local DentalEZ® Integrated Solutions Territory Sales Manager.  On any given day, Peter gets dozens of calls from doctors and distributors to talk about their range of products from new compressors and vacuums to dental chairs, units and handpieces. Today, Dr. Abbott’s call was different.

“Peter, I’ve been using Star products forever and I love them,” exclaimed Dr. Abbott. “And, I’m calling to ask a big favor. Every year, my team and I travel to Haiti to provide free dentistry services. We don’t have much equipment; we are often using Home Depot compressors and headlamps.  Our patients there really depend on our annual visits and in the past I’ve brought along the Sonic Scalers I have at my office, but I don’t have enough. Peter, I’m wondering, if there’s any way we can borrow a few extra scalers so the whole team is properly equipped?”  

Dr. Abbott’s mission trip was only a month away, so Peter got right to work. He reached out to our Star Instrument Solutions office to see if we had any “loaner” Sonic Scalers. "By working with Amber Albright and Marcia Simeral in our customer service department, we were able to provide Dr. Abbott a DEZiree Hygiene Solution with both a Blis-sonic Scaler and a Prophy Star 3 hygiene handpiece to use, not only on this  trip, but to keep in inventory for future trips to Haiti,” explained Peter. “And, by collaborating with the other members of the Southern Sales Region, we were able to source five more Blis-Sonic Scalers and tips for Dr. Abbott and his team to use during the trip.”

Blis-sonic Scaler

As a company and as individuals, the team at DentalEZ Integrated Solutions understands how important it is to help those in need. Just knowing you’ve played a part in improving the lives of others is reward enough. But, an added reward for Peter was a thoughtful text from Dr. Abbott while in Haiti, “Thank you Peter! The universe has a free pass with your name on it.”

DentalEZ® TruSim Clinical Practice Simulator Provides Realistic Design for Seamless Transition to True Clinical Practice


DentalEZ®, a supplier of integrated products and services for dental health professionals worldwide, is pleased to introduce the new DentalEZ® TruSim Clinical Practice Simulator. Geared towards all dental students, TruSim is designed so realistically that students are able to practice dental procedures as though they are in a true clinical operatory setting, thoroughly preparing them for real-life dental practice.

TruSim is ergonomically designed to minimize motions while promoting correct posture to eliminate common back pain and musculoskeletal disorders. The slim tapered narrow back design provides precise lap positioning of the manikin head and allows easy access to the oral cavity. The unit can be easily positioned for either two- or four-handed dentistry and seamlessly glides from left to right without the need for extra tools. 

TruSim comes in both stationary and mobile versions with a locking base to prevent unwanted movement. The durable powder coated steel construction of the TruSim provides a reliable yet aesthetically pleasing appearance. The unit comes equipped with touchpad controlled handpieces to support easy operation of various air and electric driven handpieces. There are also two ample storage compartments that accommodate a substantial amount of equipment, or users can opt for a single door with optional locks for increased security. 

The TruSim has a flexible position adjustment that spans from 23” to 29” inches in height to accommodate students of all sizes. Sizing in at 15” wide and 37”deep (27” stored), the small footprint of the TruSim makes use and storage quick and efficient. The TruSim can be fully integrated into any Nevin Workstation and conveniently stored in a compact downward position to save space. Moreover, delivery units can be folded and stationed inside the simulator for increased compact storage.

For more information on the DentalEZ TruSim Clinical Practice Simulator, please visit www.dentalez.com/trusim.

Moreover, the new Institutional Sales Team model now enables sales representatives to better provide all DentalEZ and NevinLabs products while allowing for a more balanced selling emphasis through a single point of contact.
