Dentsply Sirona Introduces the INTEGO Transcendental Treatment Center PDF Print E-mail

 Designed for Unlimited Digital Expansion and Integration, INTEGO Future-Proofs the Dental Operatory while Providing the Ultimate Patient Experience

Charlotte, NC (March 23, 2016) – Dentsply Sirona, Inc., The Dental Solutions Company, is proud to continue its tradition of unparalleled innovation and award-winning design with its INTEGO Transcendental Treatment Center. Designed for easy expansion and integration of all current and future technologies, INTEGO sets the stage for the ultimate operatory experience for both clinician and patients at competitive pricing.

INTEGO allows practitioners to seamlessly integrate all components of digital dentistry, including CAD/CAM tabletop peripheral equipment, into one easy-to-use unit, streamlining workflow while increasing efficiency. Ergonomically built to ensure optimum patient comfort while maximizing clinical proficiency, INTEGO exceeds the industry standard for digital practice growth and performance.

INTEGO is available in two flexible models, the INTEGO TS (Traditional Delivery) and INTEGO CS (Continental Delivery). Both the INTEGO TS and INTEGO CS are equipped with an EasyTouch user interface that provides complete control of all operatory instruments via the touch screen. A generously-sized, easy-to-read 22" medical grade monitor screen allows the clinician to better showcase patient treatment modules including intra-oral and x-ray images, software and planning views, media player files, and even PowerPoint presentations.

The dentist element offers standard features that allow for future upgrades and integrations. The units are pre-configured to accept three drill drives with up to two electric motors, an ultrasonic scaler, and an intra-oral camera. They also allow for five instrument positions, all with light source capability. The dentist elements are height adjustable with pneumatic brake and both versions are equipped to add a tray (included in the CS version.)

Both INTEGO TS and INTEGO CS offer the LEDview operating light, which provides superior illumination of the treatment area. In addition, a network interface, an SDHC memory card slot, and a USB port allow the integration of new functions as well as immediate service technician communication. 

INTEGO patient chairs are ergonomically designed to provide the most comfortable experience possible for both patient and clinician. A double articulating headrest is fully adjustable to fit patients of all shapes and sizes as well as allowing optimal visibility in a wide range of treatment situations.

Chair surfaces are durable, aesthetically pleasing, and easy to clean. Seamless lines, smooth surfaces, and premium materials result in a simple yet sophisticated appearance that is both stylish and practical, positioning INTEGO as a beautiful centerpiece of any operatory.

For additional information on Dentsply Sirona’s INTEGO transcendental treatment centers, dental professionals are encouraged to contact their Patterson representative, or visit www.sironatc.com.

Goldfish Gets Braces, Thanks to Veterinarian PDF Print E-mail

While dogs with braces might be strange enough, the concept takes on a whole other level when it’s applied to fish. That’s right: A pet goldfish was recently outfitted with braces. Brian Palmeiro, VMD Dipl. ACVD of Lehigh Valley Veterinary Dermatology in Allentown, Penn. told Action News that the goldfish, named Mr. Hot Wing, “was born without a lower jaw bone and his mouth couldn’t stay open, which made it hard to eat and breathe.”
Dr. Palmeiro performed the surgery on Mr. Hot Wing after researching the case and constructing the custom braces out of a credit card.

OSAP Supports New CDC Summary with Resources PDF Print E-mail
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has just released the Summary of Infection Prevention Practices in Dental Settings: Basic Expectations for Safe Care. The new CDC summary addresses the fundamental elements needed to prevent transmission of infectious agents, key CDC recommendations, current CDC recommendations from the Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings–2003, additional topics, recommendations and information published since 2003 and assessment checklists to evaluate prevention practices.
The Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) recognizes the importance of these CDC documents and supports CDC’s efforts to guide the profession to provide the safest care possible. To this end, OSAP has created an array of tools and resources at www.osap.org specifically designed to help dental teams understand and comply with the CDC guidelines.
As a trusted source of information for dental educators, consultants, clinicians, researchers, and policymakers, OSAP provides timely updates, advanced education, innovative training tools, referenced answers to vexing infection control questions, and proven strategies to address compliance challenges. The organization has custom-designed tools and resources to help the dental team put the CDC guidelines into practice. These include:

·         From Policy to Practice: OSAP's Interactive Guide to the CDC Guidelines, a free online course with seven modules that break the guidelines down into easily understood principles.

·         CDC Guidelines:  From Policy to Practice by OSAP, a self-study workbook that walks users through the CDC guidelines. Each chapter contains practical how-to instructions, charts and checklists, pictures and captions, answers to common questions, and guidance for making sound clinical judgments. 

·         OSHA & CDC Guidelines: Interact Training System, a program that combines requirements for OSHA annual training with the CDC Guidelines.

·         OSAP Dental Infection Control Educators' & Trainers' Toolkit, a coaching workbook delivered via CD designed to assist with the development, planning, and promotion of successful, high-impact infection control and safety programs and presentations.

In addition, OSAP will keep the dental profession informed using social media, member publications such as InfoBites, expert advice via Ask OSAP, web forums, and special programming at the OSAP Boot Camp, the annual OSAP conference, and national dental meetings. OSAP will also work with consultant, educator, and corporate members, and coordinate with other dental organizations to help inform the dental community.
Dental practitioners and other interested parties are encouraged to check the OSAP website (www.osap.org) frequently and become a member of OSAP to receive timely updates on new resources and gain access to additional educational opportunities as they become available.
Celebrating over 30 years of service to the worldwide dental community, OSAP is a growing community of clinicians, educators, students, policy-makers, and industry representatives who advocate for safe and infection-free delivery of oral healthcare. OSAP focuses on strategies to improve compliance with safe practices and on building a strong network of recognized infection control experts to help dental professionals ensure that every visit is The Safest Dental Visit™ for patients and the dental team.
