DenMat Provides a Fresh Look at an Old Concept: Soft Tissue Management®
Following a February 2014 acquisition of the Zila assets, DenMat is now proud to continue Zila’s mission by integrating the comprehensive suite of soft tissue and oral hygiene–focused products into its expanding portfolio, as well as launching a North American CE lecture series focused on the latest generation of Soft Tissue Management® (STM®).
In recent months, DenMat has engaged the founding clinicians who launched the original STM concept as well as new thought leaders in the industry who have successfully implemented the program. These clinicians have watched their practices transform—all on the foundation of hygiene. The new DenMat STM program remains true to the concepts and methodologies that have been tried and proven. However, DenMat has refreshed the STM platform with evidence-based clinical content and exciting new communication methods to increase patient acceptance.
“Upon the implementation of DenMat’s STM program in our offices, we saw hygiene revenues double, but more importantly, our patients are healthy and our entire team is re-energized and more focused on being comprehensive,” says Steven J. Wingfield, DMD, COO of Tralongo Management.
Are you ready to take your hygiene program to the next level? Bring your entire staff to a DenMat STM course near you, and get inspired and motivated today.

VELSCOPE® VX & VIZILITE TBLUE both offer effective methods of improving oral lesion identification in your practice. ViziLite TBlue provides an easy-to-use and cost-effective alternative to the tried and proven VELscope Vx.
“Operationally, we found the need for both ViziLite and VELscope in our offices. We use VELscope as the primary screening tool for oral cancer, and we always have ViziLite on hand as a backup, especially in our larger offices with multiple hygienists and doctors. Further, we believe the TBlue is key to assisting our providers in determining biopsy necessity.”
