StyleItaliano - Join the Pop Dentistry Revolution

A day not to be missed.

Styleitaliano is a Study Club, made up of friends and professionals, as well as recognised specialists from the world of dentistry, who share a passion for composite materials.

The Styleitaliano movement began with a meeting of great minds. Two friends; Dr Walter Devoto and Professor Angelo Putignano, both of whom are worldwide recognised experts in conservative and aesthetic dentistry, came together to create a simple, predictable and unbiased approach to dentistry that in its evolution is helping over eleven thousand clinicians across the globe deliver great dentistry on a daily basis.

Edelweiss Direct Venears and Composite System

Edelweiss Dentistry introduces a new concept in direct veneer applications, now available to UK dental professionals through Optident Ltd. DIRECT VENEARS are ultra – thin, ready to place, laser treated composite anterior veneer shells in a wide range of natural anatomical shapes. The laser treatment produces a surface that overcomes the problems that are normally associated with conventional composites. They require minimal adaptation, and can be easily polished. They allow the clinician to place 6 DIRECT VENEARS in less than 2 hours at one patient appointment, offering considerable savings in both time and costs. The veneer shells can be accurately colour matched using the DIRECT VENEARS unique “body and skin” shade matching technique together with the DIRECT VENEARS composite system. The applications for DIRECT VENEARS are many and varied, and offer great opportunities for the clinician to achieve successful cosmetic solutions in anterior cosmetics.

Optident are staging a series of evening instructional courses around the UK and more details of these can be found in the Education Programme section of our website.


Optident are delighted to now be the sole UK distributor for Triodent products. Triodent is an award-winning, fully New Zealand owned dental manufacturing company founded in 2003 by dentist and inventor, Dr Simon McDonald. Their range of products, designed to make the dentists life easier, include the V-Ring, the first retainer ring with V-shaped tines and the first made from nickel titanium. Their new generation of V-Ring, the V3, has been named the Top Matrix System by The Dental Advisor for 2009 and again in 2010.

Optident Go Cyclepath for the Mouth Cancer Foundation

A ten strong team will set out to cycle the Leeds-Liverpool Canal in May to raise awareness and also funds for the Mouth Cancer Foundation.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation ( was established in June 2004 to be a professional support organisation solely dedicated to supporting people with mouth, throat and other head & neck cancers, they stage and support many fundraising events throughout the year .

Optident team members, John Maloney, Tim Butterfield, Chris Leetham. Steven Hepton, Rebecca Fowler, James Fowler, Richard Walker and Rob Bridgewater together with Dr Philip Broughton from the Mall Dental Practice in Manchester and Alastair MacDonald, an Endodontist from Glasgow, will cycle 127 miles over a 3 day period, 9-11 May 2008, to promote awareness of this charity.

Dr Vinod Joshi, Founder and Chief Executive of the Mouth Cancer Foundation says ‘The mortality rate for mouth cancers has not changed significantly over the last 3 decades, early detection is the key through awareness. In the UK, there were 7,697 cases in 2004. The mortality rate is just over 50%, despite treatment, with 2,718 deaths occurring in 2005. Mouth Cancer kills one person every 3 hours in the UK because of late detection. Over 4700 cases will be diagnosed in the next 12 months and an increasing number of young people are being affected, 25% of the cases have no associated significant risk factors. Early detection can increase survival rate up to 80-90% in many cases.’

John Maloney, Sales Director at Optident adds, ‘Having met patients who have been directly affected by mouth cancer and also seeing the hard work of the MCF, we felt we should try to add to their efforts and give some support to the Foundation. The Optident offices are only a stones throw from the Leeds Liverpool Canal therefore we thought it would be a great place to start the challenge.’

VELscope – Mucosal Screening System

Oral healthcare professionals are the first line of defence in the fight against oral cancer. Velscope is a revolutionary hand-held device that provides dentists and hygienists with an easy to use adjunctive mucosal examination system for the early detection of abnormal tissue. Velscope uses Fluorescence Visualisation to assist in identifying oral abnormalities in their earliest stages. It was developed by the British Columbia Centre for Cancer Research and it is an Oral Cancer Screening and Discovery Device.

The passive blue light produced by the device, when shone onto the mucosa, is able to differentiate between normal and dyplastic cells deep in the epithelium. This allows you to accurately decide what needs to be referred and what doesn’t, but more importantly to discover abnormal tissue in advance of a visible lesion, allowing you to proceed with the appropriate treatment plan as early as possible. For more details or to arrange a demonstration, please contact our Sales Team on 01943 605050.

Statis Handpieces

Designed in partnership with the Porsche Design Studio, the SciCan Statis turbine handpieces are available with a choice of 2 different heads, one of standard dimensions and the other with a miniature head ideally designed for treating children and the elderly. SciCan has developed both designs to maximise the dentist’s freedom of movement when operating in the mouth and to provide improvements to those currently available, without compromising the performance or increasing the noise of the turbine.

The latest developments in ceramic bearing technology have been incorporated into the design to ensure lower wear resistance and extended life. For further information, please contact the Sales Office on 01943 605050.
