NEW YORK, N.Y., USA: Every year right after Thanksgiving, dental professionals flock to the Big Apple from across the country and around the world to attend the Greater New York Dental Meeting (GNYDM). The event is known as the place to be for dental professionals to learn about the newest procedures and the most innovative products in dentistry.

On Sunday, opening day of the 89th annual meeting, the exhibit hall floor was jam packed with meeting attendees looking for new, exciting offerings. On display here at the Jacob K. Javits Center are products and services from hundreds of exhibiting companies.

Dental Tribune has been combing the aisles of the show floor to see what’s new and exciting. In no particular order, here are a just a few of the many highlights:

Sulzer is offering a number of auto-mix tips, including the MIXPAC T-Mixer, designed to minimize material waste while providing a consistent, high-quality result. Anja Stouten, product manager, pointed out the benefits of the compact design, which incorporates a higher number of mixing layers internally. The mix tips are available in five different sizes and feature distinctive, colored domes.

Ritter Dental USA is launching a redesigned instrument line here at GNYDM. According to the company, the products are precisely designed and manufactured from German-forged stainless steel. “Our new instruments are lighter and better balanced than ever before,” said Ritter CEO Fred Battah, in a press release announcing the new instruments. “They are specially designed to appeal to America’s ergonomically conscious dental clinicians.”

Ritter’s instrument line can be purchased in kits that have been organized by specialty clinical applications, such as diagnostic, periodontal, surgical, restorative, orthodontic and hygiene.

Dental practitioners looking to remodel their practice with a fun, customizable look might want to check out Imagination Dental Solutions (IDS), a company that creates themed environments. “From colorful and bright to realistic and sophisticated, we can create any theme. There is no limit to our imagination,” the company boasts in its literature. The IDS booth is hard to miss. It’s got a bus with a whale on top. (The whale is wearing braces on its teeth.)

The above-listed offerings are just some of the many finds available this week here in New York.
