Highlights from the Ontario Dental Association’s Annual Spring Meeting
The Ontario Dental Association held their Annual Spring Meeting (ASM) back in May at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre South Building. The exhibit hall, where more than 300 companies demonstrated ideas for improving patient care and achieving higher levels of services success, highlighted this year’s ASM, along with focused education sessions and a variety of other informative networking events.

Attendees to this year’s ASM were invited to touch, test-drive, and compare many of the newest and most-proven materials and technology in dentistry. To be sure, there was no shortage of innovative companies with their unique products and services on full display.


DENTSPLY Canada put its Cavitron Touch ultrasonic scaling system on display at the ASM. The Cavitron combines the new, fully rotating, detachable Steri-Mate 360-degree handpiece with touchscreen technology. With a new tabletop design and capacitive-touch interactive screen, the Cavitron Touch will provide a range of ultrasonic inserts. This will give dental hygienists the ability to eliminate traditional hand scalers and, as a result, increase the longevity of their careers.

Implant Direct

Implant Direct is currently one of the dental industry’s fastest growing major dental implant companies, and they attended this year’s ASM to unveil a wide variety of highly regarded products. Their products are focused on simplifying procedures so that operating costs are perceived as positive investment that generate far greater return than their initial cost.

Patterson Dental Canada

This Ontario-based company put its full array of equipment and supplies on display at this year’s ASM. Patterson Dental Canada strives to support all aspects of a dental practice through their products and services, and their newest product is known as ‘GOCCLES’, or Glasses for Oral Cancer – Curing Light Exposed – Screening.

These glasses are designed to assist in early screening of precancerous lesions in the oral cavity. The glasses actually just became available across Canada and are being distributed exclusively by Patterson nationwide.


Septodont has an 85-year history of inventing and producing materials and instruments for dental professionals. At the ASM, Septodont boasted a healthy selection of restorative materials, adhesives, composites, anaesthetics, and other pain-control products. One product, in particular, was called Biodentine. This product is a resin-free bioactive and biocompatible dentin replacement material used to fortify both crown and root.

Shofu Dental Corporation

Originally founded in 1922, Shofu Dental Corporation manufactures highly sought-after dental and laboratory supplies. The company is well-known for minimally invasive cosmetic solutions, and at this year’s ASM, they attracted special attention with their EyeSpecial C-II digital dental camera, which is changing clinical photography using an innovative design based exclusively on dentistry needs and conditions.

Kavo Kerr Group

The Kerr Corporation has been manufacturing dental consumables, small equipment, and infection prevention products since 1981. This year, they displayed an impressively broad range of products including, but not limited to, endodontic supplies and infection control and restorative materials.

Don’t Blink, Innovating Happening Daily!

While this is just small list of some companies that attended this year’s ASM, the event continues to be the Ontario Dental Association’s premier gathering for anyone looking to stay up-to-date on the latest in innovative dental technology!
