Secure Tip – Saliva Ejector

20 Jul

Unlike other saliva ejectors that rely on friction to hold the tip in place, SecureTip saliva ejector screw securely into the valve – resulting in an ejector that functions as single bonded piece. This prevents slips, drops, and the need to replace O-Rings – which saves both time and money. In addition to the screw-in base, SecureTip saliva ejector include a soft head to ensure patient comfort, as well as an embedded copper wire that allows the tube to retain its shape upon bending. Secure Tip valves are made of durable aluminum and provided free of charge.  View video at Sure Dental Channel Secure Tip

ZNano Universal Composite now available in Canada

26 Oct

ZNano is an advanced technology, zirconia-silica nanoparticle-filled universal composite. Zirconia fillers, being far harder than the barium glass fillers used in many traditional composites, are expected to provide superior wear resistance and improved marginal integrity. The far smaller particle size in ZNano (80 nm vs. 400+ nm) resists “plucking” and gives a more esthetic result. ZNano is an ideal handling material with very high physical properties and enamel-like hardness that compares well to dental restorative market leaders. ZNano has a radiopacity of 205% of aluminum making it easy to read. Shades match the Vita Classical shading system.  For more details please call Sure Dental 1.888.277.2335

“Amazon” and the Dental Industry

23 Apr

Is the “Amazon” model the future of Dental distribution.  Well, Amazon would have you believe that.  The big manufacturers have all but caved to the notion that Amazon is the future.  This was a model that was visited back in 2000 the so called Dot Com phenom,  I remember attending the Chicago Midwinter meeting that year, it was quite a different meeting.  Large booths displaying Computer stations were all the rage,  there must have been 15 large startup dental companies entering the online distribution model that year…today only 1  from that show still exists in a viable form,  the rest were gone the following year.  While Amazon does have a tremendous infrastructure for distribution, it still has a long way to go to truly compete with established Dental Supply Houses.  Think of a Sales Force, Trade Show Exhibits, Seminars, Private Label, Technical Knowledge.  These are key success factors that are well entrenched in the Dental Supply Business.   Are the big supply houses worried ..yes.  Should they be…I don’t think so.  I think it is much easier for the Henry Scheins of the world to emulate the Amazon model than it is for Amazon to emulate the Henry Schein model.  A bigger concern for the Dental Industry should be the economy, as the economy slows, more and more pressure is brought to bare on the traditional distribution model.  The profession demands lower prices and value.  Those dental dealers that can deliver will flourish those who can’t… will not.
