    LOMPOC, Calif. - DenMat, a leading manufacturer of innovative esthetic dentistry and advanced oral health solutions are the first winners of Lompoc’s new Economic Vitality Award. The Economic Development Committee for the city of Lompoc started the Economic Vitality Award, or the EVA, to recognize local businesses who are launching Lompoc into the 21st century.

    DenMat was chosen for bringing a new and growing industry to Lompoc. The business relocated from a facility on Skyway Drive in Santa Maria.

Modernization of a business through new technology, improved service or new business approach, and updates to the physical appearance of the interior and exterior may be measured.

    Other considerations are for relocating to Lompoc, filling an empty building, or starting a new industry.

    Long-time Lompoc businesses who have shown themselves to be economic leaders in the community by weathering the local downturns, contributing to the success of other businesses, or being first to the community with new industry are also on the committee’s list.

    “We want to recognize the contributions and strides Lompoc Valley businesses are making in our community with vision and innovation,” said Jenelle Osborne, chair of the Economic Development Committee.

    Along with a certificate of award, a window decal is presented to the winners for display.

  • 03/25/2014SEATTLE MARINERS AND DENMAT® LEADING THE FIGHT AGAINST ORAL CANCER
  • Team Benefits from Advanced VELscope Vx® Technology
    Seatlle Mariners VELscope Vx

    Lompoc, CA – March 25, 2014: According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), every year, more than 30,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed, resulting in over 8,000 deaths. The Seattle Mariners and DenMat in partnership with LED Medical Diagnostics – manufacturers of the VELscope Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System – are well aware of these statistics and the importance of advanced technological oral cancer screening tools. With a strong commitment to education, prevention and annual oral cancer screenings during spring training, the Mariners have set the bar for Major League Baseball® (MLB®) teams as the leader in the fight against oral cancer.

    For decades, tobacco use was the leading cause of oral cancer and while the U.S. has seen a decrease in tobacco use today, the number one cause of oral cancer is HPV16 (Human Papilloma Virus) – one of approximately 130 strands of the virus that is responsible for the majority of cervical cancers in women. The fastest growing segment of the oral cancer population, are non-smokers, aged 25-50 with approximately 60% of newly diagnosed patients having HPV16.

    “The Seattle Mariners are one of only a few MLB clubs utilizing this innovative technology to screen their players for oral tissue abnormalities,” said Robert Levine D.D.S., Assistant Professor, Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health (ASDOH); Director of Laser Sciences, A.T. Still University and Clinical Director, Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD). “One of our primary missions at ASDOH is to educate the public about the seriousness of the increase in oral cancer worldwide. Education and early detection through routine screening plays a critical role in saving the lives of those who are diagnosed with this insidious disease.”

    Early detection of soft tissue abnormalities is particularly important in the fight against oral cancer. The VELscope Vx is the most powerful tool available to assist dental professionals and clinicians in the discovery of a wide variety of soft tissue oral abnormalities - often before they become visible to the unassisted eye. It has the ability to detect oral abnormalities early, before they have had time to spread, potentially saving lives by means of a less invasive, more effective treatment when compared to other available screening devices on the market.

    “DenMat is proud to be the worldwide leader in discovering oral tissue abnormalities,” said Brenton Lively, VELscope Senior Product Manager, DenMat. "Giving clinicians the power to see potentially life-threatening abnormalities brings a new dimension to patient care, one that we are committed to advancing on a global scale.” “Thanks to DenMat and their advanced screening technology, our athletes and staff are receiving topnotch oral exams,” said Mariners Senior Director of Athletic Training, Rick Griffin. “We strongly encourage all Major League Baseball clubs to step up their fight against oral cancer through education and annual use of advanced oral cancer screening tools such as the VELscope.”

    The VELscope's distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinctive patterns - patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease. The VELscope's proprietary filter makes fluorescence visualization possible, by blocking reflected blue light and enhancing the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.

    While the VELscope should not be used as a stand-alone diagnostic aid, when used in conjunction with the standard oral soft tissue exam, it provides visual information that cannot be acquired any other way. This simple to use, cordless, compact device provides a safe and affordable screening tool for multiple operatories, allowing practices to aspire to an advanced level of patient care.

  • 03/25/2014DenMat announces the arrival of LumiSmileTM White
  • LumiSmile White
    The maker of Lumineers® launches an entirely new brand of professional take-home whitening that promises premium whitening without the premium price.

    LOMPOC, Calif. - DenMat, a leading manufacturer of innovative esthetic dentistry and advanced oral health solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of LumiSmile White, an entirely new line of professional take-home whitening that delivers strong results with minimal sensitivity at an affordable price to the dentist. DenMat has a long history of innovation in Whitening. From the launch of the original Rembrandt Whitening in 1986 through LumiBrite Chairside and Take Home Whitening, DenMat has always been at the forefront of safe, effective teeth whitening.

    To develop LumiSmile White, DenMat sourced some of the world's foremost authorities in teeth whitening to optimize its formulations. This top tier group worked closely with leaders in the industry to create some of the best formulations on the market today. LumiSmile White is available in 32%, 22% and 16% Carbamide Peroxide concentrations, and features reduced sensitivity, real peppermint oil flavoring and 18-months of shelf life without refrigeration. Additionally, DenMat is offering LumiSmile White at up to 33% less cost than leading competitors such as Philips NiteWhite and DayWhite.

    “There is a strong correlation between whitening of teeth and additional esthetic dental work. Those chipped anteriors become additional case work when the teeth are an improved shade. DenMat is proud of our new LumiSmile White formulation and believe our end user patients will smile more after using it.” said Brenton Lively, Senior Product Manager for DenMatSensitivity during and after whitening was a big patient concern in preliminary research. DenMat's team tackled this issue with vigor, ultimately replacing some of the glycerin in the initial test formulas with propylene glycol. This modification was designed to minimize dehydration of the teeth and improve patient comfort. To this end, DenMat also added more H20 and potassium nitrate to further improve patient comfort with LumiSmile White.

    In DenMat's pre-market evaluations, LumiSmile White finished with a higher overall rating than the leading competition. Evaluators liked the new flavoring, which uses real peppermint oil, and preferred LumiSmile White's handling characteristics, efficacy and low sensitivity.

  • 10/29/2013
     
    VELscope® Vx from LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. is the
    World's Leading Adjunctive Screening Device for Oral Cancer
  • BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA - LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LMD) ("LED Medical" or "the company"), a developer of LED-based tissue visualization technologies for the medical industry, announced today that a recent scientific review in the highly respected publication, The Journal of the American Dental Association, underscores the need for adjunctive screening technologies to help detect oral cancer and pre-cancer in earlier stages.

    In a feature research article of the December 2012 issue of The Journal of the American Dental Association titled "The Limitations of the Clinical Oral Examination in Detecting Dysplastic Oral Lesions and Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma", authors Joel B. Epstein, Pelin Güneri, Hayal Boyacioglu and Elliot Abt conducted a systematic review of the effectiveness of the clinical oral examination (COE). The abstract can be downloaded at http://jada.ada.org/content/143/12/1332.abstract.

    The COE is the conventional procedure taught in dental and hygiene schools to screen patients for oral cancer and other oral disease. It normally consists of a visual inspection of oral tissue, or oral mucosa, under incandescent or halogen light using the naked eye to look for suspicious lesions, as well as palpation of the face and neck to feel for suspicious lumps. The authors conclude, "The fact that OSCCs often are diagnosed at an advanced stage emphasizes the need for improving the COE, and the need to develop adjuncts to assist in oral mucosal lesion detection and diagnosis."

    LED Medical is the inventor and manufacturer of the VELscope Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System, the first system in the world to apply tissue fluorescence visualization technology to the oral cavity. VELscope Vx devices are now used to conduct more screenings for oral cancer and other oral diseases than any other adjunctive device. To date, there have been more than 12,000 VELscope Vx systems sold globally and they have been used to perform more than 25 million exams.

    According to Peter Whitehead, founder and CEO of LED Medical, "We certainly agree that the conventional clinical oral exam needs to be supplemented with an adjunctive screening device, which is why we collaborated with the British Columbia Cancer Agency to pioneer the application of tissue fluorescence visualization technology to the oral cavity. Moreover, we can unequivocally show through numerous studies and extensive real-world experience that our VELscope Vx is a highly effective adjunctive screening device that is also easy to use, comfortable and affordable for both dental practices and their patients."

    As an example, Mr. Whitehead cited a comprehensive independent study conducted by Dr. Edmund Truelove of the University of Washington. In this study of 620 routine dental patients, the VELscope Vx device detected 28 lesions that were not detected by a conventional clinical oral exam. Of these 28 lesions, five were dysplastic and potentially pre-cancerous.

    In addition, Mr. Whitehead noted that an independent study of dental practices that use the VELscope Vx or earlier generation models showed consistently high satisfaction results with the technology and its performance. "When surveyed about the VELscope technology''s effectiveness in detecting cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions that would otherwise have been missed, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback," stated Mr. Whitehead. "VELscope technology received high marks for patient comfort during screening, the speed and affordability of the screenings, the ability of the technology to detect anomalous tissue, and the ease of incorporation into the workflow of the dental practice. Many dentists also reported that their ability to offer VELscope Vx screenings helped them attract new patients and increase incremental revenues. Over 90 percent of dental professionals surveyed stated they would recommend the VELscope Vx to a colleague."

  • 07/18/2013Lumineers® Launches New Consumer Website

  • Redesigned Website Offers Treatment-Seeking Individuals an Enhanced Information Resource Center

    Lompoc, California - /PRNewswire/ -- DenMat, the makers of Lumineers®, today unveiled a redesigned consumer website, Lumineers.com, for treatment-seeking adults to learn more about transforming their smile with the comfort and speed of ultra-thin veneers. The new website features a comprehensive before and after treatment photo gallery, and an easy to use doctor locator for visitors to quickly identify local qualified Lumineers dentists. Upon completing a simple concierge referral form on the website—with questions about preferred appointment days and times—a $100-off treatment coupon is automatically provided to start the smile makeover process.

    Championed by leading dental professionals, Lumineers are a minimally invasive alternative to traditional veneers that create patient smiles without a painful or time-intensive procedure. Ultra-thin, highly translucent and durable, Lumineers replicate the natural appearance of enamel for a resilient and bright smile that is clinically proven to last more than 20 years in many cases. Unlike traditional veneers—which may require extensive and irreversible cutting away of healthy tooth structure—Lumineers preserve the original tooth and typically require no shots or drilling. With treatment complete in just two dentist visits, Lumineers are the ideal solution to quickly correct gapped, chipped, stained, or uneven teeth.

    "The Lumineers system has long been known as the number one patient-requested veneer system in the world," says Robert Cartagena, DenMat's Chief Operating Officer. "Now, the enhanced Lumineers.com website will help people looking to permanently transform their smile and boost self-confidence understand how Lumineers combine science, technology and artistry to construct the perfect smile while preserving tooth structure," said Cartagena. "For added convenience, we've also integrated an easy-to-navigate FAQ section, patient testimonials, pricing and financing information, and powerful before and after patient images."

    The new informational and visually appealing website design was developed by Kneadle, a creative agency based in California, in partnership with DenMat. To learn more about Lumineers or to find a Lumineers dentist in your area, please visit www.lumineers.com.

    Dental Innovator: How DenMat's expanding line of smile improvement solutions
    put the company on top
  • "Providing our customers with a wide array of solutions for improving a patient's smile..."

    Lompoc, California - DPR recently chatted with DenMat Chief Operating Officer Robert Cartagena about the company's expanding reach, the evolution of the Lumineers brand and much more.

     

    Q: This year DenMat strategically positioned itself as more than a single product or category. Why?

    A: DenMat’s history begins with innovation in adhesives and cements dating back to the mid-1970s. Over the years the company expanded into areas such as tooth whitening with its Rembrandt line and indirect esthetic restorations such as Lumineers. Today, the company is truly a broad based, dental products manufacturer and laboratory. Providing our customers with a wide array of solutions for improving a patient’s smile is a critical component of our strategy. We believe everyone should have a beautiful smile. Therefore, our mission is to help the dental professional deliver smile improvement solutions while making it easy and accessible for patients to achieve the smile they want. This is why we spend millions of dollars in consumer advertising on TV, online and in print, generating hundreds of thousands of patient leads delivered to dental offices all over the country.

    Q: Lumineers is still a critical brand. How is the Lumineers mission changing and how is it anchoring the wider message about DenMat lab services?

    A: Lumineers is now a platform that incorporates fundamental Smile Design principles aimed at delivering the best possible esthetic and functional result with a minimally invasive approach. We recently launched Thinnovation, our education and training program supporting Lumineers. The program uses a multi-disciplinary approach to veneers using a variety of materials and tooth preparation techniques, all designed to produce a beautiful smile while preserving the most amount of healthy tooth structure.

    Q: Dentists know oral cancer screening is important, but few prioritize it. How do you change this mindset now that VELscope is yours to promote?

    A: The recent findings related to the connection between the human papilloma virus (HPV) and oral cancer are prompting a greater focus on early lesion detection. In years past, it was believed the at-risk population for oral cancer was limited to men who were older than 40 and who smoked, chewed tobacco and/or drank alcohol regularly. The HPV connection means the at-risk population includes anyone who engages in certain types of sexual activity. We are embarking on an ambitious plan to educate both the general population and the professional dental community on the importance of adjunctive oral cancer screening. It really is a matter of life or death.

    Q: Why should a dentist go with the SOL if he or she is in the market for a laser?

    A: The SOL Soft Tissue Laser is simply a workhorse device, in an elegant, easy to use package. There’s never been a more robustly designed, reliable soft tissue laser at this price point. We believe t every dentist should have this piece of equipment in their armamentarium, and because of this, we have made this extraordinary device accessible to everyone with a price point less than $2,500 with training included.

    Q: Tell me about DenMat’s new online commerce system. What made this initiative a priority?

    A: With the availability of broadband and the prevalence of wireless routers, most dental practices are online. Buying products over the Internet is now commonplace in both B2C and B2B industries. We want to make doing business with DenMat an easy and enjoyable experience, regardless of how the transaction is conducted. Delivering an e-commerce solution is something that will support our efforts to be a great partner for our customers.

  • 05/28/2013DenMat’s New SOL™ Soft Tissue Laser... Now Shipping in Canada
  • Lompoc, CA - DenMat is pleased to announce that SOL, the dental soft-tissue laser that’s redefining value, is now shipping to Canada and is ready for immediate delivery. SOL’s enhanced ergonomics, its simple, easy-to-use interface, and the high-contrast aiming beam combine to make laser dentistry simpler and more efficient than ever. It’s also incredibly affordable.

    SOL is engineered to make laser therapy truly convenient and simple. Its internal battery allows the clinician to move between operatories for over three hours without ever plugging in a cord...and the fiber spool cord system ensures that unwanted lengths never interfere with clinical procedures. Four simple and easy-to- use preset settings simplify treatment protocols, and all can be customized for the user’s preference.

    SOL is also designed to be the laser solution that makes life easier for clinicians. The industry’s first blue aiming beam contrasts with tissue to enhance visibility and accuracy.

    The New LUMINEERS® Local Program Is Bringing The #1 Patient-Requested Veneer
    To Dental Laboratories Across America
  • SANTA MARIA, CA and SURPRISE, AZ — DenMat, the world’s leader in thin veneer dental systems and FullContour, a leading provider of digital design services for dental laboratories, announce the introduction of the LUMINEERS Local Program, giving independent dental laboratories across America access to the #1 patient-requested veneers.

    Until now, the only way a dentist could provide LUMINEERS was by ordering directly from DenMat. Since many dentists work with their trusted local labs, where strong relationships are invaluable, DenMat and FullContour are partnering together to create the LUMINEERS Local Program, making LUMINEERS available to dentists directly through independent labs.

    “The brand recognition of LUMINEERS as the result of national TV and consumer magazine advertising brings new patients to dental offices every day seeking new smiles,” said Robert Cartagena, Chief Operations Officer, DenMat. “It’s the #1 patient-requested veneer system and now independent labs can increase their revenue significantly while providing direct service to their clients through the LUMINEERS Local program.”

    Through this new program, a dentist can send their patient impressions to a participating LUMINEERS Local lab. The LUMINEERS Local Lab scans the patient model and uploads the file to a web-based portal. FullContour then uses the scan file to design the veneer case to the LUMINEERS Local Lab’s specifications. DenMat then delivers both a design pattern and porcelain ingot to the partner laboratory. The LUMINEERS Local Lab invests, presses and finishes the veneer case for delivery to the dentist.

    “As a business model, the LUMINEERS Local Program represents the opportunity to capitalize on the broad brand recognition of this proven product,” commented Rob Laizure, Sr., Chief Executive Officer, FullContour. “Those considering joining should know that FullContour and DenMat are equally committed to achieving total customer satisfaction through on-time delivery, dependable customer support and consistently excellent product quality.”

    To learn more about becoming a LUMINEERS Local Lab Partner, contact FullContour at 888-817-8612 or visit www.denmat.com/lumineerslocal. Laboratories joining the program by October 31, 2012 will qualify to be listed in a new dental trade ad launching this winter.

  • 09/26/2012DenMat Announces Global Distribution of VELscope Vx® Enhanced Oral Assessment System
  • DenMat Holdings, LLC (“DenMat”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a long-term exclusive agreement with LED Medical Diagnostics, Inc. (“LED”) as the exclusive global distributor (except for a handful of group practices for a limited time) for the VELscope Vx®, including all responsibility for sales and marketing. As the most powerful technology available for assisting in the discovery of oral mucosal abnormalities, VELscope Vx plays a key role in the early discovery of such abnormalities, which can be critically important in the fight against oral cancer.

    "We were seeking a partner that not only has a direct relationship with the dental market, but one with the experience and knowledge to bring VELscope Vx to more dentists and their patients," commented Peter Whitehead, LED’s founder and CEO. "DenMat has the experienced team and the proven track record with leading-edge technologies to be our ideal partner in communicating the importance of this powerful system."

    Detecting tissue abnormalities as early as possible is potentially life-saving, and VELscope Vx technology is proven effective and minimally invasive, and seamlessly can be implemented in a patient's routine dental check-ups.

    Robert Cartagena, DenMat’s Chief Operating Officer, said, "LED is a recognized leader and innovator in providing dentists with powerful clinical technologies. DenMat shares LED’s commitment to the early detection of lesions and tissue abnormalities. This is potentially critical information for clinicians, and DenMat is positioned to carry forward the banner of early detection to the worldwide dental profession."

    VELscope Vx's distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinct patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease. Use of the VELscope Vx allows a wide variety of oral abnormalities to be discovered, often before they're visible to the unassisted eye.

    "Giving clinicians the power to see potentially life-threatening abnormalities brings a new dimension to patient care, one which we are committed to advancing on a global scale," concluded Mr. Cartagena.

    For more information about VELscope Vx, contact DenMat at 1-800-4DENMAT or visit www.denmat.com.
