Keystone’s First Annual LATAM Seminar a Big Success

MIAMI, Fla. – Keystone Industries has been expanding their dental-industry boundaries wider than ever before over the past couple years and the impact was felt amongst members of the Latin America dental community this May.

The Sheraton Miami was home to Keystone Industries first annual LATAM Dental Seminar, which was dedicated to customers from Latin American countries in Central and South America. The seminar, which was held May 20-21, provided attendees all the necessary training and knowledge to take their dental businesses to the next innovative level by using the Keystone product lines. Guest speakers and presenters touched on all the big-sellers, as well as some lesser-known technologies looking to hit the ground running in the Latin American market.

Dennis Urban, CDT, a key opinion leader in the dental and denture field, who has given lectures around the world, gave his presentation on removable technology followed by a live demonstration of denture processing with our Diamond D acrylic and the Tecnoflask, Keystone’s new microwavable denture flask.

On top of this big hit, Mike Prozzillo, VP of Sales, and Derek Keene, VP of Marketing, spoke to the attendees about mouthguards and thermoplastics Keystone offers, as well as how important Pro-Form mouthguard protection is to athletes in the United States. “The movement for oral protection is spreading into Central and South America through sports like soccer (futbol), MMA fighting, and boxing. With our biggest and best customers from these countries south of the United States attending this seminar, it was very beneficial for their market,” said Prozzillo.

Other speakers at the seminar included Sales Manager Wayne Allen, who shared knowledge and expertise of the acquired Bosworth product lines and the benefits it provides to dental practices, and Meg Shank of Apavia, a company that recently became exclusive international partners with Keystone for water filtration technology, who spoke about the impact and importance of water filtration in dentist offices and how it will be growing over time.

A happy group after the seminar!

The All-Star Lineup Every Dental Professional Needs For Mouthguard Season

The time has come for athletes far and wide across the country, as the season is finally upon us – outdoor sports season. This is also meaningful to those off the courts and fields, such as dental professionals – it’s mouthguard season!

We here at Keystone Industries take pride in offering high-quality, custom-fit mouthguards that lead the market in saving teeth and money all at once. Since 1967, Pro-Form has been a role player in the oral protection community, giving teams and athletes around the world affordable equipment and materials.

Our Pro-Form materials are used from the highest levels of professional sports all the way through youth leagues, and offer the highest level of protection, retention, and comfort possible. On top of all this, athletes are also able to speak and breathe easier than most types of mouthguards on the market.

Take a look at some of these alarming statistical findings, just to show how important this level of protection is for athletes in any and all sports:

  • 5 MILLION teeth are lost every year in sports activities (Source)
  • 34% of sports injuries involve the face (Source)
  • Dental injuries can cost more than 20X the preventative costs of a custom-fit Pro-Form mouthguard (Source)
  • 200,000 injuries prevented annually by mouthguards (Source)

Now that you know how important this piece of protection is, let’s get into how the process is made simple for you. Below are two embedded videos from our YouTube channel that demonstrate the vacuum forming process and how to customize the mouthguard. Both processes can be done in either a dentist office or a dental lab.

In this first video, see how our vacuum former is able to make a custom-fit mouthguard out of one of our laminates:

In the second video, watch the tutorial of our centri-fuse kit, which easily puts custom logos, numbers, and letters onto an already-formed mouthguard:

Role players like these are vital in the process. But now you may be asking about what star players we have readily available to actually protect the teeth.

There are 200+ color and style laminates available in square or round. Your custom experience is endless, but can start with these popular choices in styles:

Dual-Color

Tri-Color

Glitter Guards

Tie Dye Guards

Fun Guards

Don’t forget of the most innovative way to select a mouthguard in the dental industry! If you have an iOS device with a camera, be sure to download the Keystone Industries app to try on a virtual mouthguard for yourself!

Choose between any color and style we offer, and see how it looks in your mouth inside the app. This is an excellent selling point for a patient in the chair of your office, and can increase sales with no effort at all. You won’t see an app like this in any app store!

There’s a lot more from where these come from, so checking out the Pro-Form section of our website would be best to find exactly what you’re looking for in thickness, style, color, shape, etc. and even clear and black straps, which are required in most youth sports leagues. There are many videos on our YouTube channel and in our Learning Center, as well as our most up-to-date pamphlets and brochures in our Catalog section available for your download.

Successful Strategies For a Win-Win Relationship With Your Dental Lab [INFOGRAPHIC]

As a leader in the dental manufacturing industry, we here at Keystone aim to take that leader position and share information to those throughout the industry, in hopes of providing insight on how to better their work, practice, or reputation. This post can surely benefit doctors working on building a relationship with a dental lab!

Dr. Ken Newhouse explains in a recent article and infographic (see below) how success in dental practices is measured by their relationships with clients, employees, partners, and most importantly – the dental lab.

“Solid relationships with patients and vendors, especially with your dental lab, can carry you through challenging times and tight deadlines and give you an edge over your competitors,” Newhouse explains in the article on DentistryIQ.com. “I think one of the biggest mistakes dentists make is to treat their dental lab as a disposable resource that can be replaced if the lab owner and employees don’t “kiss the ring on bended knee.” Operating with the attitude that the world revolves around you and your practice is a long-term prescription for failure.”

Click the infographic below to enlarge it and read all of its contents. To ensure your dental lab is producing some of the best work possible to suit your needs, check out our dental lab products store on our website and make sure they’re using some of the best products in the industry!

The Mouthpiece Guy Gives Fighters A Mouthful of Keystone Material

If you browse social media enough, you’ll come across some quality accounts and information that will amaze you, no matter what peaks your interest. Here at Keystone Industries, we take in pride in our Twitter presence with current customers, potential clients, and anyone else interested in the dental industry.

With that being said, we’ve recently connected with The Mouthpiece Guy, who creates top-quality mouthguards for his clients out of our resin sheets. These clients range from boxers to UFC fighters, but they all have one thing in common: they take some nasty hits to the face. “With power comes great responsibility”, and that’s where these mouthguards come into play.

Our mouthguard resin sheets are soft and ideal for maximum energy absorption, which adds to the quality protection these fighters need while competing. On top of getting the oral protection job done, the users love the comfort, feel, and look to these mouthpieces as well, as you can hear from video testimonies on The Mouthpiece Guy’s website.

It’s an all around win-win situation for The Mouthpiece Guy, his clients, and Keystone Industries. Check out some photos of the products below, and view them all on our Facebook page!

Keystone Industries Relocates Headquarters to Gibbstown, NJ

GIBBSTOWN, N.J. – Keystone Industries, a leader in manufacturing dental and pharmaceutical products, has moved their headquarters from Cherry Hill to Gibbstown, New Jersey. Although this is just an 18-mile move south, the difference in size gives Keystone a distinct advantage with their production process.

In Gibbstown, Keystone is now conducting business out of a 250,000-square foot manufacturing facility with state-of-the-art accommodations throughout. The move allows for expansion of manufacturing products for the dental industry. It does not, however, effect the warehouse operations, manufacturing of machinery or extrusion and injection molding production in Myerstown, Pennsylvania.

Keystone Industries - Gibbstown

If you visit the new Keystone Industries facility in Gibbstown, N.J., you’ll come through this beautiful lobby.

One of the biggest advancements to be seen from Keystone’s move to Gibbstown is the transformation of their private branding program. Inside of the new, larger facility with a face-lifted program, products can be manufactured with unprecedented quality and efficiency, allowing for timely delivery at competitive pricing.

Take a look at photos from Spring 2015 at the Gibbstown facility!

Keystone Industries, a privately held company founded in 1908, has maintained a strong reputation for producing innovative, high-tech dental products in both the operatory and laboratory realms. Their dedication is driven by the need to provide customers with the finest quality materials while developing products that meet and surpass customer expectations.
