Driving dental innovation right to your door

PlandemoDan Burborough introduces Planmeca’s new mobile showroom that can be booked to drive right to your practice door.

We’ve all heard the saying ‘time is precious’, and this becomes increasingly true in both our personal and professional lives. Everything we do in our modern life is bound by the pressures of time, and dentistry is no different; from the time the next patient is booked in through to the duration of each procedure. Dentistry is evolving at a rapid pace and consumers have become more demanding, having become used to the instant gratification delivered by the internet and next-day couriers.

As business owners it’s becoming more difficult for you and your dental team to take time out to visit the many dental exhibitions to keep up with the latest product innovations available.

From the loss of revenue by being out of the practice and including team members who might have valuable input into your decision making, it is becoming increasingly more challenging to discover, learn and connect with the latest products and processes.

Enter Plandemo. Planmeca has always driven dental innovation through its portfolio and now it’s driving innovation right to your door – literally.

Planmeca’s new state-of-the-art mobile experience centre is ready to visit any practice to showcase the latest range of innovations that make up the award-winning Planmeca portfolio.

Understanding your needs

PlanDemo_insideOver the past 20 years, dental equipment showrooms have changed beyond recognition – they are few and far between and less well appointed in general. Combined with the increase pressure of running a dental practice – CQC, HTM 01-05, complexity of procedures, competition from corporates, etc – the landscape has changed, therefore the dental industry must change too.

That’s why it’s encouraging to see a company willing to invest significantly to drive dental innovation right into your practice car park.

An investment of over £220,000 (equivalent to a Ferrari 458) makes Planmeca’s mobile showroom  an opportunity not to be missed. While its zero to 60 might not be as fast as a Ferrari, the fully-functioning and completely connected digital portfolio leaves the Ferrari standing.

So why book Plandemo?

PlanDemoThe digital world is upon us and as an industry we need to adapt and change to consumers who want everything right now…including, when appropriate, same day dentistry.

Plandemo incorporates a high-tech compact Itouch dental unit featuring fully integrated and leading digital impression scanning, along with automatic infection control features. The digital impression scanner is complemented by CAD/CAM design and manufacture, being the Planmeca FIT chair-side solution.

Completing the digital workflow is the advanced Promax 3D cone beam CT machine, which integrates seamlessly with digital impressions via Planmeca’s modular Romexis image management software, plus the option to take a 3D ‘Proface’ photograph of the patient at the same time as a CBCT scan.

Of course a glossy advert or a polished piece of PR gives us some idea about a product or solution, but it is hard to imagine the detail without properly interacting with what will be a significant and long-term investment.

When you book Plandemo, you not only discover, learn and connect with innovative digital solutions, but you actually have the opportunity to try them out – the 3D CBCT is fully functioning, conforming to relevant HPA guidance – with the benefit of a product expert at your disposal.

Delivering a message to the nation

Unitag_QRCode_1449136874247Plandemo has been designed for the benefit of the dental professional; however, delivering a message of good oral health to the nation is a mission that lies at the core of the Planmeca ethos – to deliver better care.

With the potential of covering over 30,000 miles per year and visible to hundreds or thousands of members of the public (patients), Plandemo features a striking oral health message on the rear with the aim of prompting viewers to actively make better decisions about regular check-ups.

There is a documented body of evidence to support the direct link between one’s oral health and overall general health and the consequence of poor oral hygiene can result in an increased risk of diabetes or even strokes, not to mention the link to heart disease. As a result of this evidence and an alarming lack of public awareness, Plandemo presented the perfect opportunity to raise the profile of good oral health.


A visit from Plandemo will ensure you and your team will have every opportunity to discover, learn and connect with the very latest digital products, without leaving the comfort of your practice car park. Simply scan the QR code or go to www.plandemo.co.uk to register your interest, and make sure you leave space in your car park.
