Excellent Business Results and Change in Leadership at the Ivoclar Group

Posted on Thursday, March 23, 2023

In the 2022 business year, the Ivoclar Group achieved a turnover of 872 million Swiss francs, surpassing its previous record set in 2021. The Liechtenstein-based dental and medical device company, which is celebrating its 100-year anniversary in 2023, attributes this success to the introduction of innovative new products and the company’s expansion into growth markets around the globe. Nevertheless, a change in leadership has been announced: Markus Heinz will replace Diego Gabathuler as CEO of the Ivoclar Group.

After having achieved excellent operating results in the 2019 and 2021 fiscal years, the Ivoclar Group further improved its performance over the past financial year to attain the highest total revenues in the company’s history, amounting to 872 million Swiss francs. The currency-adjusted turnover was 4.9 per cent higher than in the previous year and therefore above the average market growth rate.

Change at the helm of the company

Under the leadership of Diego Gabathuler, the company has developed very successfully in recent years. Numerous initiatives focusing on creating a more modern, digital and customer-centric organization underpin the strategic direction. After eight years with the company and for almost four years in the role of CEO, Diego Gabathuler has decided to leave the company. He will take some time out from corporate life to explore career options outside the dental industry with particular interest in the world of start-ups. “We would like to thank Diego for his achievements over the years and wish him good luck for the next chapter in his life,” says Helmut Schuster, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Ivoclar Group.

Markus Heinz appointed new CEO

The successor of Diego Gabathuler will be Markus Heinz. He started his career at the company in 1985 and most recently held the position of Chief Operating Officer. Markus Heinz has a proven track record in the fields of production, supply chain management, organizational development, people management and customer care, a skillset the Ivoclar Group wants to draw on in order to continue its story of success.

“My remit is to continue successfully implementing the existing strategy and to further develop the organization. This includes fine-tuning and optimization by increasing the focus on our growth markets and on our core products while investing in innovative solutions for the future. We will continue to sharpen our focus on our customers, our people and partners,” says the new CEO Markus Heinz.

Mastering challenges together

The Ivoclar Group did not remain unaffected by the geopolitical and economic tensions in the world in recent years. Nevertheless, the company successfully navigated through these tough circumstances: “Even though we had to deal with issues related to logistics, delivery capabilities and energy supplies, we were able to anticipate the challenges in advance and plan accordingly,” explains Markus Heinz, the new CEO of the Ivoclar Group. “The geographical diversification strategy of the company allows us to spread our business activities over different types of economic regions, thereby reducing currency and supply chain risks. This gives us a competitive edge in uncertain times.”

Markus Heinz will be supported in his many tasks by the existing members of the Corporate Management. In his role as Chief Commercial Officer, Christian Brutzer will be responsible for the sales organization of all markets in the future. “Our organization is thus in good and safe hands as we open a new chapter in the history of our company,” says Helmut Schuster.

Outlook on 2023

In 2023, Ivoclar is celebrating its 100-year anniversary under the theme of “A Century of Innovation”. At trade fairs and conferences around the world, the company is sharing its rich history of innovative achievements and celebrating its success story with its customers. The insights provided by the “Ivoclar Innovation Room” at the International Dental Show (IDS) already gave an outlook on how the company founded in 1923 intends to continue its success story. In June, Ivoclar will be inaugurating its new administration, visitor and training centre at the company headquarters in Liechtenstein. The building houses 300 attractive, state-of-the-art workspaces and allows visitors to immerse themselves in a unique dental world of experience, the Ivoclar Experience, which brings to life the company’s mission of “Making People Smile”.

Academy of Osseointegration Honors Steven E. Eckert, DDS, MS, With Prestigious Distinguished Service Award

Posted on Tuesday, March 21, 2023

Retired Director of Clinical Research & Development for ClearChoice Management Services, LLC Receives Highest Tribute For Decades of Contributions to Implant Dentistry

For more than 40 years, Steven E. Eckert, DDS, MS has been one of the most prominent names in implant dentistry, winning several awards throughout his career and serving as a mentor and coach for many prosthodontists in the ClearChoice Dental Implant Center® network. While Dr. Eckert is now retired, his accomplishments continue to significantly impact the field. Last week, he was honored once again by the Academy of Osseointegration (AO) as he humbly accepted the organization's Distinguished Service Award.

The Distinguished Service Award is the highest tribute the Academy can pay to an AO member. It is awarded to recognize individuals for outstanding clinical, educational or scientific achievement, contribution to implant dentistry and/or exemplary service to the academy. Further, the AO celebrates individuals who have made broad contributions over time that may have resulted in any one or more of the following:

· Scientific Research

· Evolution of the knowledge base that guides practice

· Enhancement of education programs

· Significant changes in governance or the political milieu for implant dentistry

· New understanding of tissue replacement therapies in oral and facial care

· Improved patient care, satisfaction, and outcome

"Today, we have a level of knowledge in the field of osseointegration that we never thought we would see 25 to 30 years ago. We've seen this explosion of knowledge that is truly impressive and has done a wonderful service for our patients," said Dr. Eckert. "I would like to thank the AO for the Distinguished Service Award. Being the first recipient of this award is indeed a humbling experience and one that I won't soon forget."

Prior to his retirement at the end of 2022, Dr. Eckert practiced for over 40 years with 25 of those years at the Mayo Clinic where he served as the prosthodontic program director for 15 years and also as the director/examiner for the American Board of Prosthodontics, a peer elected position. During his tenure at ClearChoice, Dr. Eckert opened and served as the primary prosthodontist at ClearChoice Minneapolis in Edina, Minn. from 2010-2018, and he served as the Director of Clinical Research & Development for ClearChoice Management Services, the administrative support team that serves the ClearChoice Dental Implant Center network. In 2017, Dr. Eckert was the recipient of three prestigious awards: the Academy of Osseointegration Brånemark Osseointegration Award honoring an individual's impact on, and leadership in, the field of implant dentistry; the American Academy of Maxillofacial Prosthetics Ackerman Award that honors significant contributions to the advancement of this special area of practice; and the American College of Prosthodontists Dan Gordon Award recognizing lifetime achievement.

The Distinguished Service Award was presented to Dr. Eckert on Thursday, March 16th prior to the opening session of the AO's annual meeting in Phoenix.

Spier Family Honored With Dental Scholarship Fund

Posted on Tuesday, March 21, 2023

Surgical Wing at Texas Tech Dental Oral Health Clinic to Be Named for Dr. Thomas and Hendrika Spier

Thomas Spier, DDS, has led an incredible life. A child survivor of a WWII Nazi concentration camp, he immigrated to America with his Dutch mother and sister in 1952. His father, Jo Spier, who was a famous Dutch illustrator, and his older brother, Peter E. Spier, who was to become a renowned children's book author and illustrator in his own right, had previously arrived in 1951.

At the time, Dr. Spier spoke limited English, but he put the experiences of WWII behind him and became an American success story. He graduated from Adelphi College with a B.A. in pre-medical studies, accomplishing this in just two and a half years, in spite of English being his fifth language and still unperfected. Dr. Spier went on to graduate from Columbia University’s College of Dental Medicine, known then as the Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery.

In August 1959, with his first wife and one-year-old daughter, Dr. Spier moved to New Mexico to serve a two-year tour of duty with the United States Public Health Service (PHS) to provide care to Native American communities throughout Northern New Mexico — from San Felipe Pueblo in the south to Taos Pueblo in the north.

His clinic was a mobile bumper-pull Winnebago trailer, supplied with a barber's chair, electric dental drill powered by extension cord, and water via a hose that Dr. Spier hooked up anywhere he could. He relates that he would always try to park in the shade of a tree because it got hot inside the trailer. Dr. Spier completed his PHS commitment in August 1961, and then went into private practice in Santa Fe. Dental and oral health care was so important to Dr. Spier that he served as president of the New Mexico Dental Association in 1972.

In honor of his extraordinary journey and accomplishments, Dr. Spier’s family has created the Spier Family Dental Scholarship Fund for the Hunt School of Dental Medicine at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso. The scholarship fund, established as a part of the family’s celebration of Dr. Spier’s 90th birthday in 2021, will give priority to incoming dental students from New Mexico, the Spiers’ home state.

“We’re grateful to the Spier family for their generosity,” said Richard Black, D.D.S., M.S., dean of the Hunt School of Dental Medicine. “Their support will allow us to educate more students from our neighboring state of New Mexico, which also faces a significant shortage of dentists. By providing talented students with the opportunity to learn and train locally, we’re growing our own future generation of dentists who will remain in our Borderplex region to practice. This, in turn, will help New Mexico patients receive the care they need to maintain good oral health.”

“We hope the deserving students who receive these scholarships will continue building on the tradition of delivering world-class patient care, improve the quality of life in the region, and be inspired by our father to excel in a career of service and dentistry,” said Peter A. Spier, one of Dr. Spier’s children who initiated and shepherded the effort to create the scholarship fund.

Inspired by Dr. Spier’s life and career, and their love for him, his four children, along with his granddaughters, extended family and friends from across the U.S. and the Netherlands, contributed to the $100,000 scholarship fund. In honor of their generous gift, TTUHSC El Paso is establishing the Hendrika and Thomas Spier, D.D.S, Family Dental Surgical Wing in the Texas Tech Dental Oral Health Clinic. Dr. Spier and his second wife, Hendrika, have been married 48 years.

The announcement and unveiling of the named surgical wing was held Monday, March 20, at the Texas Tech Dental Oral Health Clinic. Moved by their loved ones’ generosity and the morning’s events, Dr. Spier and Hendrika contributed an additional $10,000 to the scholarship fund.

“The naming of the dental surgical wing pays homage to a remarkable couple,” added Peter Spier. “The scholarship fund recognizes my father’s achievements forged by his disciplined work ethic, professionalism, love of the practice and the art of dentistry, which improved health care for communities in Northern New Mexico throughout his 41-year career.”

Dr. Spier’s story is one that will inspire the spirit of service in Hunt School of Dental Medicine students. Many of the school’s inaugural class of 2025 are the first in their families to graduate from college and are nontraditional students with spouses, children, and unique life experiences, including military service.

As of 2019, there were 51.5 dentists per 100,000 residents in New Mexico, ranking the state 37th in dentists per capita for the U.S., according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information. In addition, 32 of the 33 counties in New Mexico are federally designated Health Professional Shortage Areas in Dental Health. This includes the nearby counties of Doña Ana, Otero, Lincoln and Hidalgo.

Like West Texas, rural New Mexico lacks adequate dental care access. According to the New Mexico Department of Health, these communities struggle to recruit and retain dental providers. Three New Mexico counties do not have a practicing dentist.

Before the Hunt School of Dental Medicine opened in 2021, the nearest doctoral-level dental schools New Mexico students could attend were A.T. Still University in Mesa, Arizona or the University of Colorado in Aurora, Colorado.

In October 2021, the New Mexico Higher Education Department (NMHED) and Hunt School of Dental Medicine announced an agreement in which the agency will cover the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition for two New Mexico students who otherwise would be required to pay the higher out-of-state tuition to attend the Texas school. The funds, provided by the New Mexico Legislature, will cover up to $20,000 in tuition per student.

BIOLASE Launches E-Commerce Site to Enhance Positive User Experience and Streamline the Purchasing Process to Create Greater Efficiencies tor Dental Practitioners

Posted on Tuesday, March 21, 2023

BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), the global leader in dental lasers and a company continually focused on improving the dental ecosystem, has launched a new e-commerce website for its U.S. customers.

The new website,, combines a state-of-the-art desktop and mobile-friendly design with "collections" for a unique and modern shopping experience that customers are accustomed to in today's environment. These different collections allow practitioners to quickly locate a product, and they can further refine the search criteria by procedure, laser type, or dental specialty with the click of their mouse or swipe on their mobile phone.

The website gives customers the ability to link their business bank account to their BIOLASE store account and to subscribe to items they buy on a regular basis, giving office staff more time to spend on patient care instead of placing orders. The site will also suggest popular items based on search history as customers browse or complete their purchases.

On a quarterly basis, the BIOLASE store website will spotlight a different BIOLASE dentist, along with helpful tips for some of their favorite procedures. This will enable more customers to quickly be exposed to the additional capabilities of their laser that they may not have previously considered, as well as learn which tips are being used in certain cases by top laser clinicians.

"We expect the new website will generate increased adoption within our laser platform by making it easier to identify the variety of procedural applications the laser can be used for, along with the best tips available for each treatment and procedure," said Steven Sandor, Chief Operating Officer of BIOLASE.

"We're excited to launch this new e-commerce site," said John Beaver, President and CEO of BIOLASE. "We are continually focused on accelerating the dental laser adoption curve, and we believe this improved online shopping experience will help increase our momentum and continue to help laser dentistry become the gold standard of care."
