Benco Dental introduces three insightful solutions at Chicago Midwinter

February 22, 2019

Benco announces rollout of groundbreaking single-shade composite from Tokuyama, Onset® buffering system compatible with four anesthetics and Ucreate’s interactive digital art panels.

Benco Dental, with an 88-year record of delivering success to dental practices, introduces three insightful solutions from its vendor partners and branded lines. Among them: groundbreaking offerings from Tokuyama, OnPharma and NunoErin.

OMNICHROMA by Tokuyama: A universal composite that esthetically matches the entire classical VITA shade range with just one shade of composite. OMNICHROMA utilizes innovative Smart Chromatic Technology, the first composite to use structural color as the main coloring mechanism. This game-changing technology allows for better clinical outcomes while reducing inventory and chair time.


“OMNICHROMA is a one-stop shop for shade matching and it has excellent handling properties, polishability and wear resistance," says Massachusetts practitioner Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, Salem Dental Arts. "I can achieve predictable, excellent results with this composite and it has become the first material that I reach for in most direct-restorative clinical situations."

“Vital to our aim of driving dentistry forward is propelling cutting-edge products into wide use by educating customers and encouraging acceptance,” says Terry Barrett, chief marketing officer for Benco Dental. “We’re excited to help launch OMNICHROMA because it’s a genuine game changer: a totally new solution to the challenge of shade matching that, even more amazingly, saves time and money."


Onset® by OnPharma: Faster onset, less chair time, improved practice flow - all delivered by one buffering agent. Onset numbs within 35 seconds for some patients and 90 seconds or less for most others by adjusting with a Sodium Bicarbonate solution to raise the pH of the anesthetic. Staying with a patient improves their experience, and getting right to work improves practice flow and saves time. Now, Onset can be used to buffer four of the five major local anesthetics used in dentistry: lidocaine, articane, prilocaine and mepevicaine. Its cartridges now feature a three-year shelf life. Previously, the opened product had to be used or discarded in one practice day, but that has been extended to five days. 


“I have been using Onset for the past couple of years and I couldn’t be more happy with the results of each injection. The medical field has been buffering anesthetics for years and when Onset became available to dentists, it was a no brainer to add it to my practice,” says Jason W. Erickson, DDS, Erickson Dental, Irving, Texas. “Patients report a noticeable increase in comfort with each injection and anesthesia is achieved much quicker. It’s an aspect of each procedure that is irreplaceable and gives me the confidence that each patient is being treated the way I would want them to be treated.” 


Ucreate by NunoErin: The multi-touch surface, modern design and originally developed games of Ucreate puts creativity at dental patients’ fingertips as their touch guides them through a whimsical world of play. NunoErin, a Jackson, Mississippi company offers products that transform everyday spaces - including dental practice reception and play areas - into enchanting destinations.

“Ucreate fits well with the fun, interactive environment we are trying to create, and it doesn't take up too much space,” says Brandon Hoang, DMD VIVA Orthodontics, Garden Grove, California. “It will keep the kids in the reception area happy and busy. Hopefully, they will like it so much they will always remember our office and tell others about us.”

“We are thrilled to partner with an industry leader like Benco to bring unique family-play solutions to dental practices seeking to differentiate themselves in their market and drive customer loyalty and repeat family business,” says Erin Hayne, NunoErin co-founder. 

Benco will feature these three insightful solutions, alongside leading-edge services, equipment and merchandise, at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting, through Feb. 23, at Booth #3834. For details, visit benco.com or call 1-800-GO-BENCO.
