BDIA Dental Showcase 2015 delivers business and innovation

 

 

BDIA Dental Showcase, the UK’s leading B2B dental trade show, opened its doors to three days of brisk business and networking at Birmingham’s NEC from Thursday 22 to Saturday 24 October. 

 

The exhibition, organised annually by the British Dental Industry Association (BDIA), brought together over 330 exhibitors and the widest selection of dental equipment, products, services and demonstrations of the latest techniques for the profession to discover what’s new, meet with product experts and conduct business deals.

 

With sponsorships deals in place with the major oral healthcare companies for the next two years, as well as exhibition bookings now being taken up to 2017 in response to exhibitor demand, BDIA Dental Showcase is firmly established as the premier business event for the dental industry.

 

Visitors to the exhibition had an exceptional opportunity to experience a significant number of innovations first-hand with more dental companies than ever choosing this event to unveil or showcase their latest products to the UK market including Oral-B, Cattani Esam, Ceramic Systems, Cerezen, DMG, KaVo, NSK, Philips, Software of Excellence, TePe, Voco and W&H to name but a few.

 

Although overall footfall at the exhibition was a little lower than in previous years it was clear that the event continues to be the place to see what’s new, do business and network with colleagues, with plenty of key purchasers and influencers in attendance.

 

The feedback from delegates and exhibitors alike has been fantastic.

 

Nigel Williams a dentist from Hay-on-Wye said, “It’s all here and you can actually see the stuff and have a look and see what it feels like, see what it looks like, see what the quality’s like. You can’t really do that from a catalogue. You see new stuff as well. You get new ideas, new practises.”

 

Roham Barez, a visiting dentist from The Dental Gallery, commented, “All the companies are gathered in one location so you have an opportunity to see everyone under one roof and it’s good for making new contacts.”

 

GC UK Ltd’s surgery products manager, Patrick Kelleher, added, “We see this as a premium show, it’s our big show of the year, it’s a chance to showcase the new materials on the marketplace and meet old friends as well, so it’s a really important place for us to be.”

 

Dean Hallows, the general manager at A-dec, revealed how well the company did at the BDIA Dental Showcase, “A-dec had an outstanding 2015 Showcase, customers were able to chat with the knowledgeable A-dec team and experience the A-dec dental chairs and stools in a relaxed atmosphere, all of this led to our best show in many years, with more leads than recent years and a much higher volume of sales too.”

 

There were lots of new features at this year’s show, including the inaugural Implant Zone, at which selected leading members of the team from the Association of Dental Implantology gave lectures and demonstrations on this increasingly important aspect of dentistry.  Current ADI President, Philip Friel, said, “Our programme at Dental Showcase has been a fabulous opportunity to share the advances we have made in implantology.  And it was pleasing to see the huge level of interest from dental professionals and be able to answer their questions and provide advice.”

 

BDIA’s Executive Director Tony Reed added, “Showcase plays a vital role in facilitating business for the sector enabling exhibitors and buyers to meet on a one-to-one basis to conduct business.”

 

“Like many others within dentistry I am concerned about the proliferation of events diluting audiences both for exhibitors and the profession. This has refined our audience significantly. A substantial amount of business of mutual benefit has been conducted during Showcase and we are looking forward to another productive event in London next year.”

 

Visitor and exhibitor feedback clearly shows that BDIA Dental Showcase was a great success. Ken Finlayson, the CEO of FMC summarised; “This year’s Dental Showcase was exceptional in terms of the consistent calibre of attendees. We had our best ever Showcase and will definitely be taking a major stand in London. It feels like the dental world is getting stronger and stronger.” 

 

BDIA Dental Showcase 2016 will be held at ExCeL London from 6-8th October 2016, so make a note in your diary and start planning your visit now!

 

Delegates can download their CPD certificates from this year’s exhibition by visiting www.dentalshowcase.com from 9 November 2015.

Be part of Denplan’s selfie campaign on Stand M25 at the BDIA Dental Showcase!

Be part of Denplan’s selfie campaign on Stand M25 at the BDIA Dental Showcase!

Denplan has been at the heart of dental care for nearly 30 years and this October we have launched our largest ever national TV campaign, with a TV ad that is being aired for three weeks on a host of popular channels.  You’ll be able to find out lots more about this campaign at Denplan’s Stand (M25) at the BDIA Showcase this week.

In nutshell, the ad plays on todays’ selfie-obsessed culture by using humour to dramatise what happens when people lack confidence about their teeth whilst taking a selfie. Denplan believes it’s a concept that many of us can relate to as Denplan’s research with YouGov revealed just how popular selfies are today… a staggering 5.6 million selfies are taken in an average day by adults online.  Furthermore, nearly three quarters (74%) of adults have worried about how their teeth look in photographs.*

There is a fun interactive element to the ad with the incorporation of a hashtag (#doitforyourselfie) encouraging people to generate and post their own selfie via Twitter, Instagram, or via www.doitforyourselfie.co.uk.  Visitors to the Denplan stand will have the opportunity to take their own selfie and upload it there and then to the doitforyourselfie.co.uk gallery, as there will be an interactive selfie wall on the stand. By uploading a selfie, participants will automatically enter the #doitforyourselfie competition to win £2,000 of UK holiday park gift vouchers and an Iphone 6s**

Richard Ward, Head of marketing at Denplan says: “The ad has moved away from the typical clinical or educational advertisements that could be for any number of dental products. Instead, viewers will see a memorable, impactful ad using humour to engage them. The aim of the ad is to make everyone feel proud of their smile, and to highlight the importance of preventive care and regular dental visits and it encourages patients to seek advice from a Denplan dentist.

“Our intention with the ad is that it will also capitalise on the unique strength of the Denplan consumer brand which will work in partnership with Denplan’s member practices own brands to help them stand out in a competitive market. We believe the ad will provide dentists with the ideal opportunity to talk to their patients about the benefits of joining Denplan and drive more patients into their practices.”

As an example of the marketing support Denplan provides for its member practices, every practice has been sent a #doitforyourselfie pack which contains a range of marketing tools to help practices make the most of the campaign, including some eye catching background posters and a selfie stick so that practice teams can encourage patients to take a “post check-up selfie” and enter the #doitforyourselfie competition.

If you haven’t seen the ad yet, don’t worry as you won’t be able to miss it at the BDIA Showcase!  You can come and view the ad on our stand, where our friendly Denplan consultants will also be available to talk to you about the wide range of services we offer. There will be a private seating area where you can have an in-depth chat with a Denplan consultant.  Please do come along and learn more about our wide range of dental plans for adults and children, which enables patients to spread the cost of their private dental care through a fixed monthly fee. Denplan supports regular attendance and preventive care, reducing the need for clinical intervention and helping patients to maintain healthy teeth and gums for life.

 

*Source: YouGov survey for Denplan. Survey was carried out online with 2077 adults, September 2015. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all UK adults (aged 18+)

** Competition open to Denplan patients and non-Denplan patients aged 18+. Closing date, midnight on the 4th November 2015. Full terms and conditions apply and can be found at denplan.co.uk/selfieterms

Whether you want to completely refurbish your practice or are looking for specific fixtures or fittings, there really is only one place to compare your options and to take advantage of some fantastic deals.

BDIA Dental Showcase is the UK’s premier dental trade show and on the 22-24 October over 350 exhibitors, along with over 10,000 dental professionals, will be converging on the NEC in Birmingham.  It’s also home to a whole range of mini lectures, on-stand presentations and special events.

On Stand J115, Belmont will be challenging dental professionals to think about the way they work and how their treatment centre facilitates that process.  Belmont's 'Below-the-Patient' delivery systems have been designed with the aim to increase efficiency of space, energy and time.  In addition, delegates will be able to learn about the state-of-the-art equipment and the dedicated design-and-build service offered by Clark Dental (Stand G195).  Their vast catalogue includes dental units, chairs, radiography equipment and much more that help to create a modern, successful dental practice.

This theme is continued by Score (Stand A80) who believe that the use of saddle chairs is a positive contribution to the physical health of dentists and dental nurses.  You are invited to the stand to try their chairs and to experience the unique Score Balance technique that helps the saddle swing smoothly.

Rest your feet on the GDPUK stand! F215

Rest your feet on the GDPUK stand! F215

 

We are proud to say that we will be exhibiting at Dental Showcase next week from Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th.

The decision to attend was made at short notice so because of that we will be using the space as a meeting point for the GDPUK community. There will be plenty of seats for people to meet, talk and chat all things dentistry, so we look forward to seeing you there. All are welcome on F215.

GDPUK has thrived over the years because it has let dentists from all around the UK discuss issues or problems in a secure environment, without the public looking in. Many lifetime friendships have been formed, plus of course plenty of healthy debate, outrage and mischief created. By not exhibiting in the traditional sense, we think our exhibition stand, will be perfect for members of the dental community to catch up, reminisce or do some business…. Hopefully one or two new friendships will also be formed as well :)

We Look forward to seeing the whole dental community at Showcase, it is always a great event, one that is worthy of everyone's support. See you all next week.

Start planning now for BDIA Dental Showcase

Start planning now for BDIA Dental Showcase

It’s not long now until BDIA Dental Showcase, which this year will be held on 22-24 October at the NEC in Birmingham - and with so much happening, it might be wise to start planning your visit now.

As the UK’s premier and best attended dental industry event, there’s always something for every member of the team.  But this year there’s even more to see and do.

There are around 350 exhibitors from every aspect of the practice and business of dentistry, demonstrating the latest innovations in products and services.  This hands-on access lets you try before you buy, and with such a great range of exclusive show offers, it’s no wonder that 73% of visitors made purchases during, or as a direct result of attending last year’s event. 

Among the many exciting new innovations being launched will be CerezenTM (Stand K5).  This revolutionary device is a new way to treat temporomandibular joint disorders and related symptoms.  As well as on-stand demonstrations of the product, Dr Daniel Saund will be presenting a lecture on its benefits and supporting evidence as part of the mini lecture programme.

Cerezen UK Country Manager, Saife Aziz, commented, “There was really only one place for us to carry out the full launch of CerezenTM.  BDIA Dental Showcase is such an important event that it is the perfect opportunity to share this exciting product with the dental profession.”

For those looking to introduce cutting-edge technology to their practice, Carestream Dental (Stand G15) will be presenting the latest digital imaging products and practice management software.  The CS 8100 3D is just one example of the innovation on offer, bringing the power of 3D imaging with outstanding clarity and simple image capture within the reach of every general dental practice.

The latest innovations from DMG will be on display at Stand F210.  These include the easy-to-place, latex-free DMG MiniDam, a handy silicone shield for isolation of proximal areas that helps achieve dry conditions whilst protecting the gingiva.  

As well as new products, a comprehensive programme of CPD mini lectures and presentations by industry experts means you can catch up on the latest developments in a diverse range of topics from technology and techniques through to finance and growth strategies.  This year sees the launch of The Dairy Council sponsored Dietary Zone.  This special section looks at the link between diet and oral health and how members of the dental team can engage patients in discussions about appropriate nutrition.

The Dairy Council’s Director of Nutrition, Dr Anne Mullen, said about this innovative collaboration, “Nutrition and dental health are intrinsically linked. We are really looking forward to sharing ideas between the disciplines with the hope of cross-pollinating ideas for practice.  Our publications on nutrition and health are extremely popular among dental professionals, and the BDIA Dental Showcase will allow us to interact directly with that user base”.

BDIA Dental Showcase is also delighted to be partnering with the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI) which will be presenting a range of lectures and demonstrations at the Implant Zone (Stand N215).  Members of the team will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Tony Reed, Executive Director at the BDIA comments, “Showcase provides the ideal opportunity to see what’s new and to try it out.  There are plenty of exciting innovations at this year’s show and I hope that every team member gets a chance to find out for themselves just how valuable a day spent at Showcase can be.”

The exhibition is just a few weeks away, so to discover what’s new, register now for tickets by visiting www.dentalshowcase.com.  The website helps you to keep up-to-date with the latest news on exhibitors,  lectures to attend and networking opportunities available.  You can also get the latest updates and plan your visit by downloading the BDIA Dental Showcase mobile app.

Designed for treating periodontal pockets >5mm, PerioChip® takes only 30 seconds to apply. Once placed, the chip immediately releases a high local concentration of chlorhexidine diglucontate, killing 99% of subgingival pathogenic bacteria over a seven to ten day period.[i] For further peace of mind the antimicrobial effects of PerioChip® continue to suppress bacterial flora for up to 11 weeks enabling the periodontium to stabilise and heal.[ii]

The BDIA Showcase is ideal opportunity to have a practical hands-on demonstration from the PerioChip® team and grab some valuable information to help your patients. Come and see us on stand D115.

Achieving the Perfect Practice

 

A successful dental practice needs good dentists, but more importantly, a good dental team. Happy, motivated employees are the foundations of the perfect practice. Recruit well in the first place; keep your contracts updated regularly to reflect the needs of the practice and use disciplinary procedures when necessary. Too many businesses issue standard contracts and never update them. Contracts should be reviewed regularly to reflect the changing needs of the practice, through added incentives, adjustment of working hours or changes to job descriptions.

 

Dental W1 Practice Management Consultants based in Marylebone provide expert legal advice to assist with all your employment needs, from help with staff recruitment to drafting tailor-made contracts to conducting disciplinary interviews. We also provide training to your practice managers on a host of relevant topics. Practices made perfect.

 

Dental W1 Practice Management Consultants can be found on stand R12G at the Dental Showcase.

Fill-Up! TM– In a single step to give a perfect result

This tooth coloured, fluorescent and radiopaque bulk composite provides a perfect amalgam replacement and alternative to glassionomer cements, compomers as well as conventional filling therapy. Fill-Up!  combines the advantages of resin-based composites with simplified and efficient handling. Owing to its dual curing properties, fillings with Fill-Up! can be administered in arbitrary filling depth without the need of an additional covering layer.

Welcome to the safe side!


Conventional light curing bulk filling materials are limited in their curing depth, questioning whether the restoration fully cures. But with the dual curing properties of Fill-Up! There is a guarantee of thorough curing down to the bottom of any cavity.

Also, chemical curing minimises shrinkage stress dramatically, preventing micro fractures and postoperative sensitivities. As supported by studies, the bonding partner ParaBond caters for a perfect marginal seal comparable to the one of conventional composite - before and after thermo cycling and chewing abrasion – ensuring a secure long-term restorative solution.

Convenient and fast

Fill-Up! is applied in a single layer and finished with rotary instruments after 5 sec of light polymerisation. The material is easy and quickly polishable to high gloss and therefore is the perfect choice for all Class I and II fillings, cavity lining and core build-ups – for perfect and fast results!


Fill-Up! Deep. Fast. Perfect.

Company policies are available for two employees upwards, once again offering comprehensive cover for maintenance costs such as check-ups and hygienist fees. Additional treatment cover such as children's orthodontic cover and implant cover is also available. Plans in the main offer immediate cover and do not take into account pre-existing conditions.

By recommending your patients to Get Dental Plans, you will be safe in the knowledge that they will receive impartial advice on a range of dental insurance plans on a non-commital basis.  There is no administration for you, simply recommend your patients to speak to us and let your practice grow!

The plans are very comprehensive and competitive with no pre-joining checks.  People are claiming straight away, they are writing to tell us they can’t believe how easy it is and the dentists are saying the same:

I am writing to express my satisfaction with Get Dental Plans . My dental insurance policy was easy to understand and my first claim was paid without any problem or delay. My policy compliments my health insurance policy that I have currently, as the health policy does not cover me for dental cover. Stephen Slade

Get Dental is an extremely useful scheme for affording private dental care.  It involves only an introduction from my practice and then no administration at all.  It gives patients immediate access to dental cover so they don't delay treatment.   It serves us well by removing a major barrier to accepting care and by improving our cash flow and case acceptance. It really is a win win opportunity. Maish Weinstein – Dentist

 

At the BDIA Showcase we will be launching our ‘One Year’s Free Dental Insurance’ voucher.  Please come over to stand R12M for more information on how we can help your business grow.

XyliMelts oral adhering discs relieve dry mouth day and night

OraCoat® XyliMelts® oral adhering discs; new dry mouth treatment advancement

 

XyliMelts oral adhering discs relieve dry mouth day and night

 

For patients who suffer from dry mouth, there is a new remedy. OraHealth, the world leader in the breakthrough technology of  OraCoat oral adhering discs to coat and soothe the mouth has introduced  OraCoat XyliMelts for Dry Mouth, all-natural, great tasting, oral adhering discs that slowly release an effective amount of xylitol (500mg) and oral lubricant to relieve dry mouth (xerostomia) day and night and reduce plaque and tooth decay.  XyliMelts discs can be safely used while sleeping when dry mouth is worst.

 

Xylitol, the key ingredient in XyliMelts, is a natural food substance that is comparable to sucrose in sweetness but contains fewer calories and fights cavities. XylMelts adhering discs also contain cellulose gum, a humectant, which coats the mouth to retain moisture. The xylitol and mild mint flavor help to stimulate saliva.

 

For dry mouth suffers, the feeling of serious dry mouth is bad enough, but there are two consequences that are even worse: disruption of sleep, reducing quality of life all day long, and rampant tooth decay.  XyliMelts is the only dry mouth remedy that effectively addresses either of these consequences.

The patented oral adhering disc technology allows XyliMelts to discretely stick to gums or teeth making them ideal for use while sleeping to avoid sleep disturbance.  A recent clinical study, published in the International Journal of Dental Hygiene, demonstrated that use of XyliMelts time-release adhering discs while sleeping significantly improved perceived oral wetness upon awakening in the morning, and improved perceived discomfort for xerostomia.

A second consequence of dry mouth is rampant caries.  XyliMelts time-release an effective level of xylitol into saliva while sleeping, when saliva flow is lowest and the xylitol will stay in the mouth longest before being swallowed.  XyliMelts used while sleeping is the most effective delivery per gram of xylitol for caries control.

According to Kiet A. Ly, MD, MPH, University of Washington Department of Dental Public Health Sciences, "sufficient evidence exists to support the use of xylitol to reduce caries."

Many medications cause dry mouth, as does increasing age, mouth breathing while sleeping, use of CPAP machines for sleep apnea, certain autoimmune diseases like Sjogren's Syndrome, and radiation therapy.

Additional benefits of XyliMelts for dry mouth suffers include:

• Stimulates saliva

• Coats, moisturizes, and lubricates

• Provides lasting relief (all night when used while sleeping)

• Reduces plaque and tooth decay

• Freshens breath

• Discreet – no one can tell you have something your mouth

• Works for night-time dry mouth caused by breathing through the mouth

• Can be used with CPAP machines, oral appliance therapy, and dentures

To use XyliMelts for Dry Mouth, place the disc at the gum line on the outside of a molar, upper or lower, with the white side touching a cheek and the tan adhesive side against the gums and/or teeth.  Use the tongue to push the disc to a comfortable spot.  Once there, do not push the disc with fingers or touch it with the tongue for 10 seconds, as this will disrupt adhesion which grows stronger over time.

 

XyliMelts discs come in two flavors, regular (mild mint) and mint free, and are currently available online.  Patient samples and wholesale pricing are available for dental professionals at www.oracoat.eu. For more information call (London) +44 (0) 203 772 5432 or visit www.oracoat.eu.  At the Dental Showcase, visit stand S09 for a free sample.

Selling PDS Agreements Holders – Incorporation First?

By Alex Hall, Meade King Solicitors

It has always been awkward for holders of PDS agreements to sell. Unlike GDS contracts which allow holders to enter partnership, have the contracts varied and for such partnerships then to be dissolved PDS agreements area meant to be ‘personal’, held by only one dentist or entity (e.g. an LLP or Limited Company) and so the right to take on and shed partners is absent.

PCT and now NHS England consent has therefore always been necessary for a transfer to a buyer. With the increased understanding (and enforcement) of European procurement rules, NHS England (as seen in its current policies) is unwilling to give such consent, for fear of legal challenges.

This is currently the situation no matter whether the PDS agreement is for orthodontic services, domiciliary services or sedation. It is of course the case that a PDS agreement for mandatory services can be converted to a GDS contract (on 3 months’ notice under Regulation 21 of the PDS Regulations), although there is a risk for high-UDA-rate contracts that the contract value may be challenged (the GDS Statement of Financial Entitlements maintains the right of NHS England to ‘agree’ the contract value of a new GDS Contract). Furthermore, due to the nature of a PDS Plus agreement (only a percentage of the contract value may be converted to GDS), such conversion is inappropriate making consent necessary for PDS Plus agreements too. 

Consequently, it is of great interest (especially to Orthodontics who wish to sell) that in recent months it has become clear that NHS England’s position towards incorporation may offer a solution.

It was always the case that many PCTs refused consent to incorporate, and the fear of breach of procurement rules often provided them with the excuse. However that slowly changed, especially with the growing knowledge of the 2009 European Court of Justice ‘Pressetext’ ruling, and in June 2013 NHS England released its first policy on incorporation.

That policy has meant that PDS agreement holders have been able to apply for consent to incorporate and obtain a new PDS agreement in the name of their company. Once that is arranged, the company can then be sold to a buyer. This therefore appears to be a solution to a sale proceeding.

However, there are some downsides and some issues to seriously consider:

  • NHS England, applying the incorporation policy criteria, may still refuse consent in certain circumstances;
  • Incorporation (even when followed by a sale) is a serious trading change and there are costs attached to it;
  • Having only shares in a company to sell can limit the market of willing buyers (there are still some buyers who are nervous of buying shares rather than assets);
  • NHS England insists, in its policy, on a ‘novation agreement’ signed by the contractor who must agree to guarantee the company’s performance of the new company PDS agreement. That obligation is open-ended, and would feasibly continue beyond the sale of the company unless NHS England consent to be released from the guarantee (or agree a replacement guarantor) is obtained.

Having said all of this, such issues and potential problems perhaps pale into insignificance (though they should be dealt with appropriately) if there is no alternative, leaving the contractor with the choice of selling on these terms or not selling at all.

However, a further issue on the Horizon looms. In June 2014 NHS England published a revised incorporation policy (‘revised April 2014’), which encourages Area Teams to consider including a change of control clause in the novation agreement as a condition of consent. Such clauses, necessitating NHS England consent to a sale of the company who in the future, are attractive for NHS England as they give Area Teams a degree of control over who the company is sold to.

Worst-case scenario, this could defeat the sale objective, as NHS England could refuse. However the chances of successfully arguing that NHS England should consent to a transfer of the shares to a buyer (or indeed that a refusal is unreasonably), should still be higher than the current prospect of convincing an Area Team to agree to a straight transfer in breach of procurement rules. Indeed, paragraph  35 of the revised policy helpfully states;

consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned and shall not apply in relation to the departure by reason of death, retirement or ill-health of a director or shareholder”.

Those most at risk of refusal will be those:

·         Who are openly incorporation simply to sell shortly after, highlighting the importance of care and confidentiality throughout the process; and

·         those whose buyers are unpalatable to NHS England. Buyers in such circumstances should expect some difficult questions from vendors and their about their previous NHS performance, ongoing patient complaints and GDS and performances list proceedings.

It is interesting to note that NHS England appears to expect the opposition to its new policy in these respects as paragraph 39 of the revised policy states “Area Teams should be aware that they may face challenge on the inclusion of the change of control” and the policy includes several references to disputes being referred to the NHS Litigation Authority, first-tier tribunal or the civil courts.

Consequently, cumbersome though it is, and despite the fact that it is still fraught with risk and issues, incorporation appears to be an option that should be considered for sellers who hold a PDS Plus agreement or PDS agreement for advanced, further or additional (i.e. non-mandatory) services.

Alex Hall will be participating in the daily ‘Ask the Lawyers’ panel on the Dental Elite Stand (Stand No – E10) on Friday at the Dental Showcase 2014 from 2pm.

Dental Elite are offering all delegates free access to a Dental Lawyer to answer any questions any delegates have in respect of the Dentolegal World every day from 2pm at the Dental Showcase 2014.
