Getting Back to Business: Rebecca’s Top 5 Zoom Chat Topics.

UK Team Leader and Europe Sales Manager Rebecca shares with us the top 5 topics on everyone’s lips right now, and invites you to book a zoom call for a closer look at some of our popular products.

I am delighted to have been speaking to more and more of our lovely customers recently via Zoom, and I just want to say I am so impressed with how they have all coped and worked so hard during a very uncertain time!

We understand that, for most of you, getting through the backlog of patients with overdue appointments is top priority. We’ve all become more digital savvy over the past months so why not book a zoom chat with your local Product Expert Rebecca, Karen, Emma or Lou?

Reducing aerosol generation

In addition to sourcing essentials such as PPE and disinfectant products, many of you have asked for products which reduce aerosol generation, and also how you can expand your treatment offering with tooth-whitening and anti-snoring options.
Here is a quick run down of the top 5 topics I have been chatting about recently... 

1. How do I reduce my AGP’s?

Enter the Adhesive Removal Plier: No need for a hand piece with this ideal plier.



Our beautiful Ixion Instruments are excellent quality. Their box joint means there is no lateral movement; the brushed surgical stainless steel reduces glare from surgery lighting; and they are ergonomically designed to reduce hand fatigue. I could go on forever about Ixion Instruments! Also, for interproximal reduction without a handpiece, our Airo Strips come in a variety of sizes and are autoclavable.

2. Where can I source PPE and infection control products locally?

We’re all about shopping as locally as possible to support UK and regional businesses. UK manufactured Disinfectant range, Bossklein, has a selection of surface disinfectant options, hand rubs, and hand sanitiser dispensers.
When it comes to PPE, we love the eye catching frames of our face visors (especially the purple one!).

3. What is the best option for Tooth Whitening?

There has never been a better time to help your patients beat post-lockdown blues with a confidence boosting tooth-whitening treat. Autograph Tooth Whitening offers both 10% and 16% carbamide peroxide that can be worn from as little as an hour a day, plus a handy 6% Hydrogen Peroxide top up pen for those touch ups.


4. Is it easy to offer anti-snoring treatments?



The answer is yes, because the MSi makes it easy! In addition to free marketing support, you get a free questionnaire establishing risk of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea to send to your patient’s GP. The MSi, short for Mandibular Snoring Inhibitor, was developed with DT and Anti-snoring Appliance Expert Phil Chapman. It is designed to be as comfy as possible – even for heavy bruxers.

5. How can I improve my clinical photos for social media?

Now more than ever, we are moving into the digital era, and using social media to communicate with customers and patients. When you reveal some of your great patient results, why not perfect them with our photography products? We have a fantastic range of retractors, mirrors and contrastors.
