Latin American Dental Professionals Come Together with Keystone in Miami
MIAMI, FL – Late May in Miami, Florida was taken over by the Keystone Industries Dental Group and participants from around Latin America for the second annual Keystone LATAM Seminar.
Hosted by Keystone at the Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel, the second annual seminar paved the way for many Latin American dentists, dental dealers, dental technicians, and dental hygienists to learn about and use great products in their businesses. It was not your standard lecturing and reading – attendees were wowed with hands-on demonstrations showcasing how well Keystone products work along with one-on-one questions and interactions with all presenters.
Key Opinion Leader, Dennis Urban, CDT, highlighted the LATAM Seminar’s presentations, as he’s done in the past at many worldwide dental conferences and seminars. Mr. Urban touched on the correct protocol and procedures in removal technology, displayed cases done with various Keystone dental lab products, and then gave a start-to-finish demonstration on creating a denture with Diamond D denture acrylic and the Tecnoflask microwaveable flask.
Throughout day two of the seminar were presentations from Mike Prozzillo, VP of Domestic & International Sales and Sales Manager, Wayne Allen. Mr. Prozzillo enlightened the crowd on the technology behind custom-fit mouth guards, which Keystone has lead in the marketplace for decades. Keystone also introduced its newest addition to the Pro-Form line, the PF2 Mouthguard.
With the swarm of MMA-like sports taking over Latin America, mouthguards are taking off south of the US border faster than ever before.
“We are extremely excited to begin working thoroughly with our Latin American customers on education with mouthguard protection,” said Prozzillo. “The more and more athletes and dentists learn about the importance and advantages of oral protection, the more the market has to grow in those countries.”
Mr. Allen, who came joined Keystone when it acquired the Harry J. Bosworth Company, shared his knowledge and expertise with attendees on the state of the dental hygiene marketplace and how Keystone can benefit their business practices. Among many products and Q&A sessions, live demonstrations with the ProphyBrite Air Polisher and Consistency Impression Material engaged attendees throughout.
“The Latin American markets have presented significant growth opportunities for Keystone over the past several years,” said Ira Rosenau, President of the Keystone Industries Dental Division. “Our focus and dedication to growing Keystone’s presence in these territories has been rewarded by having fantastic, energetic business partners in Latin America. It is a real treat for us to be able to spend time with our loyal customers in such an interactive setting like our Miami seminar.”
