The benefits of guided surgery

The benefits of guided surgery

 

 

Balraj Sekhon highlights two cases to illustrate the benefits of guided surgery

As a general dentist, I have found using advanced implant planning software such as coDiagnostiX™ to be very beneficial and I have been using it fully for about a year now. I don't have a CT scanner in-house (it would be difficult for me to justify the costs as a mixed practice), so we refer our patients to a local scan centre and they send us an open file scan that we can place into the software. Once in the coDiagnostiXTM system we can take the various measurements and assess the best placement for the implant.

coDiagnostiXTM is an investment in terms of direct cost and time to gain the depth of knowledge to fully utilise all the elements and tools in the system. However, I firmly believe it improves the patient journey, delivers a more efficient surgery process, reduces stress, and ultimately delivers better dentistry.

Case example 1 using Straumann coDiagnostiXTM

Replacement of two posterior teeth with screw-retained crowns.

Straumann coDiagnostiX Case 1

Case example 2 using Straumann coDiagnostiXTM

Replacement of upper left central incisor with screw retained crown.

Balraj Sekhon - BDS (Manc), MJDF RCS (Lond), PGCert (UCLan), MSc Dental Implantology (Distinction)

Balraj graduated from the University of Manchester in 2003 and has since worked throughout Manchester providing the highest quality dental care. He is one of the principal dentists at Circle Dental. Balraj’s ethos is to treat every patient with the utmost care and provide the best evidence-based dentistry.

Balraj has studied dental implantology to the highest possible standard and currently works with a Yorkshire-based surgical team with Specialist surgeon, Dr Robert Dyas. He has a growing referral network of practices and has also managed problems encountered by other dentists. He has a keen interest in teaching and this has been recognised by his appointment as Educational Supervisor by the Northwest NHS Deanery.

Staying innovative in a growing business

 

Dentisan [Quadralene] is delighted to announce that Managing Director Andy Corley, has been invited to take part in the CBI’s MSB (Medium Sized Business) Summit 2016, entitled ‘Meeting the Productivity Challenge’.

This prestigious event, being held on 7 July in Central London, will explore the challenges that medium-sized businesses face in raising productivity and highlight some of the practical steps that such businesses can take to increase output and unlock new growth.

Designed for CEOs and senior leaders of MSBs, the Summit will include keynote and panel sessions and Andy will participate in one of the key case studies ‘Staying innovative in a growing business’.

Whilst companies such as Dentisan [Quadralene] have a proud legacy of developing new and exciting technologies and innovations, the UK as a whole underperforms when investing in Research & Development. Addressing this issue is essential for international competitiveness and plays a crucial role in making the UK a place in which to invest and grow a business. During the session Andy will highlight the steps Dentisan [Quadralene] has taken to become an innovator within its market, and explain the important role that R&D has played in its success.

Andy commented, “I am delighted to be taking part in such an important event. Innovation is central to our business ethos, and we could not succeed without significant investment in R&D. It has been a lynchpin of our business, and concentrating on innovation has helped us to both attract new employees and release the latent potential within our existing team. I am very much looking forward to sharing our experiences with other like-minded business leaders.”

Burmaball – “great success”!

 

On the 12th October, guests gathered at the exclusive “Eight” private members club in the City for the inaugural Burmaball. The ball, which organisers hope will become an annual fundraising event, was organised in aid of Burmadent, the dental charity set up to help dental volunteers provide care to the people of Burma.

The ‘Burmaball’ has been 10 months in the planning, ever since dentist Henrik Overgaard-Nielsen and his wife Sharon Bierer returned from their first trip, during which they provided dental care to 1200 orphans and local people in the area of Lake Inle.

During this trip, Henrik and Sharon, who were accompanied by Lesley Naismith, support manager at Software of Excellence, had the idea for the Burmaball and on their return they enlisted the help of fellow Charity trustee Brian Weatherly (President, Software of Excellence).

10 months later, with 140 guests and a long waiting list for tickets, Sharon feels the effort has all been worthwhile. “Our aim was to raise awareness of the charity and its aims. We were also keen to raise enough money to cover the cost of a mobile unit, which will enable volunteers to bring desperately needed dentistry to the more remote tribal peoples.”

The black tie event was an eclectic mix of glamour and tradition, with Burmese dancers providing a traditional welcome for guest of honour Burmese Deputy Ambassador, Daw Ei Ei Tin and Syed Kamall, the MEP for London and Master of Ceremonies. Games, an auction and a raffle, featuring some amazing prizes such as holidays in Portugal and Italy, helped to keep the donations flowing and following a sumptuous south east Asian dinner, the evening concluded with dancing until the small hours, to music provided by Brian Weatherly’s band ‘The Viceroys’ and a professional DJ.

There are three separate trips already booked up until December, Burmadent is growing into a successful and influential dental charity. The Burmaball will only help in disseminating this message throughout the profession.

DPAS Walks for Charity

DPAS walks for charity

b2ap3_thumbnail_DPAS2425-Mouth-Cancer-Walk-small.jpg

Over twenty representatives from DPAS put their best foot forward on 29 September when they took part in the 10km Mouth Cancer Awareness Walk 2013. The team included members from all departments, including the majority of the management team.

The event, now in its 8th year, saw Team DPAS join many other fundraisers for a 10km walk around Hyde Park in order to raise awareness of the symptoms of head and neck cancers. In total, over 600 people took part and Team DPAS managed to raise over £1,200, with donations still being received.

Sam Brice, Marketing Manager at DPAS, said: “Mouth Cancer kills one person every 3 hours in the UK because of late detection. The work that the Mouth Cancer Foundation is doing in terms of education about screening and public awareness of the symptoms is tremendous and such a high profile event can only help to create a better understanding of the disease. DPAS is proud to be associated with this organisation.”

A third of cosmetic treatments booked online!

 

 

A third of cosmetic treatments booked online!

Recent booking data analysis by Toothpick (toothpick.com) has identified that online appointment booking is fast-becoming a must-have service within the dental practice, revealing that half of all live bookings (50%) [i] made are done so outside of surgery hours (Mon-Fri, 9am – 5pm).

This ever-increasing statistic represents a dramatic shift in the way patients perceive dentistry and the options available to them, as their personal time is being spent researching cosmetic treatment and trawling practices for last-minute appointments whilst sitting in the comfort of their own home.

The analysis also uncovered that over a third of these bookings (37%) were made for cosmetic consultations. With around one in ten general dental practitioners now signed up with toothpick.com and the average practice offering cosmetic treatments, online appointment booking is proving to be an ideal platform to promote these services.

Mintel’s ‘Dentistry MBD 2013’[ii] recent report also supports these statistics, reporting significant growth in cosmetic dentistry over the last five years, increasing to £1.3 billion in 2013, and highlighting that there is likely to be as much as 21% growth in the next five years.  Such findings are further evidence that by opening your doors 24/7 with an online appointment booking system, your practice can generate additional revenue and become more profitable whilst working the same surgery hours.

Additionally, this electronic revolution offers an obvious solution to prevent last minute ‘white space’ in the appointment diary, as Toothpick’s analysis confirmed that over 1 in 5 (21%) bookings are made within 24 hours of the practice putting them online, successfully making unfilled gaps in the diary visible to potential patients and ensuring they’re quickly occupied.

 

See the results for yourself and try online appointment booking for FREE* today, with a no-obligation, no-risk trial. If it’s not for you, don’t worry – you can choose to cancel for free!

Leading market research company predicts strong growth for dental sector

A report published last month by market research giant Mintel, forecasts strong growth across the industry in the coming 5 years and concludes that by 2018 UK dentistry will be worth £9bn, a 14% increase on its current value.

Leading dental marketing agency Manan Limited, who collected data from more than 600 dentists for their 2012 Dental Survey, shared their findings with Mintel, having been approached by industrial analyst and author of the report, Angus Handley. Manan’s data provided an insight into some key areas of the dental market, including dentists’ likelihood of increasing specialist service provision, the level of hygienist services currently available, and the profession’s adoption of new technology, such as online appointment booking.

The report gives detailed forecasts of how the next 5 years are likely to develop, particularly in the face of a new NHS contract, currently expected no earlier than 2016. Predicting slow growth in the private sector of only 2.5% (on a par with GDP forecasts) between 2014 and 2016, a more favourable economic climate and increased disposable income will lead to more patients accessing private care, causing a rapid increase in 2017 and 2018, resulting in an overall 5 year forecast of 14% growth, according to the report.

Similarly, cosmetic dentistry is also expected to benefit from the predicted change in the economic environment. The report concludes that once the financial barriers to cosmetic treatment are removed there is a healthy prediction of 21% growth over the next 5 years in this sector.

Manan has full access to the report and will be happy to discuss those aspects that pertain to their clients’ individual needs.

GC UK launches NEW e-Comic: The Adventures of everX

 

GC UK is excited to announce the launch of their new and innovative e-Comic exclusively for Facebook fans and online community. With an aim to illustrate the significant advantages of using GC everX Posterior, readers will be able to view a new episode each week and benefit from exclusive product offers.

 

GC everX Posterior is a fibre-reinforced composite designed to be used as dentine replacement, in conjunction with conventional composite such as G-ænial Posterior for enamel replacement. The short fibres of GC everX Posterior will make it a perfect sub-structure to reinforce any composite restoration in large size cavities. Fibres will also prevent and stop crack propagation through the filling, which is considered to be the main cause of composite failures.

A race to help save lives

Louise-Bone-photo-cropped.jpg

To help raise funds for the Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme, DPAS Practice Consultant Louise Bone, is running in the Glasgow 10K Race this October.

Sponsored by practice-branded dental plan provider, DPAS, the Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme is the Mouth Cancer Foundation’s new life-saving initiative which accredits dental practices that routinely screen for oral cancer using their ‘2 Minutes to Save a Life’ screening protocol and meet other specific criteria.

The Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme also aims to improve outcomes for head and neck cancer sufferers in accordance with the BDA’s occasional paper for the early detection and prevention of oral cancer and NICE guidelines. In addition, it embraces recent CQC, Information Governance and Clinical Governance requirements, as well as responding to the GDC’s recommendation for continuous professional development for the management of oral cancer.

Explaining her reasons for taking part in the race, Louise said, “As a previous Specialist Dental Nurse in the Regional Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department at St John's Hospital, I worked very closely with patients who had head and neck cancer, so I have seen first hand the devastating impact that mouth cancer can have. This was one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever had, in fact I’m still in contact with some of my previous patients, so I am delighted to do anything I can to help this worthwhile charity bring greater awareness of the need for early detection of mouth cancer.”

Louise has never run a 10K race before, but is hoping to complete the course in less than 60 minutes. She is training hard and taking some time away from her main hobby of horse riding in order to take up this challenge.

To sponsor Louise and help save lives, please visit http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/LouiseBoneDPAS2MinutestoSaveaLife

The Mouth Cancer Screening Accreditation Scheme is open to any dentist registered with the GDC or any dental practice whose clinicians are registered with the GDC For more information please contact the Mouth Cancer Foundation via This email address is being protected from spambots.

ICDE 2013 BIGGER & BETTER

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_James-Russell-copy.jpg

Ivoclar Vivadent’s ICDE 2nd anniversary celebrations were back bigger and better for 2013, as over 200 dental professionals congregated at their state-of-the-art Leicester based UK and Ireland Headquarters, for an action-packed couple of days.

Attracting a pleasant mix of clinicians and technicians alike, delegates benefited from seeing the return of the superb clinician/technician duo James Russell and Rob Lynock. Taking to the stage on both days, James and Rob’s infectious chemistry saw them present another series of attention-grabbing case studies on how, through close teamwork, the excellent combination of the clinicians and technicians skills can ensure patients are provided with highly aesthetic, natural restorations. A variety of techniques to make conventional approaches more predictable and aesthetic were also shown.

With hands-on demonstrations from leading experts such as Rob Storrar, Jurgen Seger and Rob Endicott, alongside business-focused presentations from Laura Horton and Ashley Latter, to name just a few, delegates were spoilt for choice when it came to choosing from the comprehensive programme of practical lectures and inspiring seminars.

June’s much-anticipated event more than lived up to its high expectations with its supply of first-class speakers, and Ivoclar Vivadent ensured birthday celebrations carried on well into the Friday night with a lively party of eating, drinking, dancing and entertainment from the ‘Abba’s Angels’ tribute band.

Export Achievement Award win

Ed-Wright-of-Shakespeares-with-Bob-Newsome-and-Andy-Corley-Quadralene-For-Dentisan-website.jpg

Dentisan’s parent company Quadralene, has been recognised for their recent significant increase in international sales, winning the Medilink East Midlands Export Achievement Award.

The increase has been driven largely by Quadralene’s expansion in healthcare markets and their products are now sold in 41 countries worldwide. In 2012, overseas sales increased by 70% and are forecast to rise by a further 50% this year.

Managing Director of Dentisan, Andy Corley, said,  “I am thrilled to receive this award on behalf of a terrific team that works hard each day to build our growing reputation as a leader in the field of infection control. Their tireless effort on behalf of our international clients is what makes the difference. This award is proof that their work is recognised not only in the UK market but also on a global stage.” 

Medilink is an organisation that celebrates the latest technologies, outstanding business achievement and international success across the UK Life Sciences sector and this is not the first Medilink award-win for the company. Two years ago, Dentisan received an “Outstanding Achievement” award for their collaborative work with University of Nottingham School of Biosciences in developing Bioclear, a biofilm remover for Dental Unit Water Lines. The company now goes forward to Medilink’s National Finals, held at the end of the year.

Toothpick approaches 2000 practitioners with direct access to hygienists launching in July



Toothpick offers instant appointment visibility to thousands of potential new NHS and Private patients enabling them to find your practice and securely book a visit at the click of a button 24/7, helping to fill those unsightly gaps in your appointment book, whilst allowing the practice to retain full control of the diary.

With hundreds of hygienists currently listed on toothpick.com and the GDC’s approval for direct access, Toothpick is set to become the number one destination for finding a dentist or hygienist, with hundreds of practitioners joining every month.

Toothpick offers numerous practice advantages; it frees up reception time to focus on customer service, results in less administration and increases utilised chair time, all of which will ultimately help your practice to grow profitably and effectively.

CEO Sandeep Senghera added, “90% of new Toothpick patients typically book within 4 days and usually have higher restorative needs. These appointments would otherwise potentially go empty eating away at the profit of the practice.”

If you’re one of the 50% of UK practices without a website, then fear not, with Toothpick no website is required as patients can click through to a fully editable practice profile.

Dentist to take on 18 month 18 Event Charity Challenge

b2ap3_thumbnail_Dr-Ross-Cutts.JPG

A 36-year old Dentist from Cirencester is taking on a marathon fundraising challenge to raise much-needed funds for Breast Cancer Care and support people affected by breast cancer.

His goal? To raise £18,000 by competing in 18 challenging sporting events over 18 months (with a target of raising £1000 per event).

When asked what is driving Dr Ross Cutts of Cirencester Dental Practice, to take on such a herculean challenge he said:

Breast cancer is a scourge of the modern day with many families tragically affected by it. My family and friends seems to have been surrounded by it of late - some with tragic consequences. I have spent all of my working life talking to patients and have often listened to stories of inspiration that humbled me, but I have never felt compelled to act upon it. Until now!”

With his first two challenges - the 60 mile Blenheim Cycle Ribbonride and a 100k Nightrider Cycle - already under his belt he is now setting his sights on the next two - the British 10k London Run in July and the Cotswold Triathlon in September.

Ross is also one of the thirty bike riders taking part in the Straumann Charity Bike Ride 2013 taking place on 19th-24th September 2013, starting at the Straumann headquarters in Basel, Switzerland and finishing at the Head Office of Straumann UK in Crawley, West Sussex - a mere 600 miles in six days!

The nomination comes on the back of a significant increase in international sales for the company, with products now sold in 41 countries worldwide. In 2012 overseas sales increased by 70% and are forecast to rise by a further 50% this year, with all of this growth being generated by work in the healthcare sector.

This is not the first time Dentisan has been associated with the Medilink awards – 2 years ago they received the top award for “Outstanding Achievement” for their collaborative work with University of Nottingham School of Biosciences in developing Bioclear, a biofilm remover for Dental Unit Water Lines.

Medilink is a networking organisation for the healthcare and bioscience sector with more than 3,400 contacts in over 600 organisations representing all aspects of the sector, including private and public institutions.

Countdown to charity bike ride

b2ap3_thumbnail_Straumann-Charity-B4A2614A.JPG

 

With only three months to go, the countdown to the Straumann Charity Bike Ride 2013 is well and truly underway, as a group of 30 prepare to cycle 600 miles in six days to raise funds for The Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) and Bridge2Aid.

Although different in their causes, both charities work tirelessly to provide help and support to those in need. CLAPA provides support for all those with and affected by cleft lip and palate. It also runs confidence-building camps for children and distributes bottles and teats for babies born with the condition. Bridge2Aid delivers dental care, education and training programmes in Tanzania, and run a community development programme for those living on the streets of Mwanza.

Explaining why Straumann chose these two charities, Managing Director, Stephen Booth, said, “In the UK, approximately 1,000 babies a year are born with cleft lip and palate so it’s important to help CLAPA continue to provide services for all those with and affected by this condition.

“Likewise, Bridge2Aid provides primary dental care and education to millions of people in the developing world, plus lots more. Both CLAPA and Bridge2Aid are completely independent and rely on charitable donations, and Straumann are delighted to be able to play a part in helping them continue the excellent work they do.”

Straumann are ultimately aiming to raise over £30,000 for Bridge2Aid and CLAPA. Donations can be made online via http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=Straumann&isTeam=true

The Straumann Charity Bike Ride 2013 takes place on 19th-24th September 2013, starting at the Straumann headquarters in Basel, Switzerland and finishing at the Head Office of Straumann UK in Crawley, West Sussex.
