New York, NY - At the Greater New York Dental Meeting this year, Valplast International Corporation, Master-Touch Dental Laboratories, Inc. and Precise-Fit Services International, Inc. made quite an impression on attendees from the dental industry. With two booths - one in the GNYDM area and one in IDT | ColLABoration - there was no shortage of information and giveaways.
“The Greater New York Dental Meeting is our Home Show, and we’re always thrilled to support the conference and meet our local customers," said Peter Nagy, President and CEO of Valplast International Corp. "This year we had our largest presence ever, and we are very pleased with the response.”
With two locations this year, the Valplast Enterprises presented their full range of products and services for both clinicians and laboratories. Their latest Digital Technologies for partial dentures were displayed by Master-Touch Dental Laboratories and Precise-Fit Services. Dentists and laboratory technicians had the opportunity to see and use Adjustment instruments for Valplast® and new Finishing and Polishing tools available from OrderValplast.com. The full line of Denture Home Care products was also on display.
Among some of the new products, the best seller of the week was the official Valplast® Chairside Adjustment Kit. Table demonstrations of the product gave visitors the ultimate experience to show the speed and simplicity of the kit. Visitors were also able to gather some goodies including free Val-Clean® samples and samples of the Green Mounted Stone.
Down the hall, at the IDT | ColLABoration booth, Ordervalplast.com and Precise-Fit had giveaway bags, special samples, and table demonstrations of their finishing and polishing instruments and new super-fast techniques.
While at the show, Justin S. Marks, CDT, of Master-Touch Dental Labs, and Apeksha Pole, DMD, gave a compelling presentation about combining digital impressions with RPDs. Valplast Innovations offers services and provides education and consultation on implementation of digital technologies with RPD fabrication.
“It was pretty excellent to be able to talk about other dentists and technicians and describe to them how digital dentistry is moving forward right now and how we were able to collaborate to make many different types of partial dentures using digital impressions” said Dr. Pole.
The lecture consisted of a presentation highlighting the benefits of digital dentistry for the dentist-laboratory communication and workflow, and how the use of this technology gives patients a more enjoyable experience. Both Marks and Dr. Pole expressed how this is the future of dentistry and encouraged those in attendance to research how to use this technology to their advantage. Valplast provides courses and webinars on the use of digital technology in partial and denture fabrication.
“It has made a pretty big impact on both of our businesses.” said Marks. “Obviously everything that we do in restorative dentistry starts with a good impression. If we can use digital to streamline that and have more accurate results that’s really what we are aiming to do and I think we both accomplished that.”
