Let’s get began. Dr. Wühr, are you able to please inform us concerning the story of EMS and the way it’s positioned as a pacesetter in prevention and prophylaxis worldwide?


Dr. Ernst hr

In 1981, Electro Medical System (EMS) was based within the Vallée du Joux, a tiny valley in Switzerland, and this previous yr, we celebrated its fortieth anniversary. We relocated to Nyon in 1995, subsequent to the lake of Geneva. EMS is devoted to the dental trade, the urology world, and ache remedy, providing medical options to deal with most skeleton pathologies. EMS shapes the historical past and the way forward for set up administration with profitable guided set up administration.

Vallée du Joux, Switzerland, the place the EMS Story Started

Dental is our ardour, and we’re consultants in eradicating biofilm because of the medical protocols of EMS Guided Biofilm Remedy. Biofilm is the basis explanation for tooth decay, periodontitis, and peri-implantitis. Our purpose is to take away biofilm with GBT, however its success isn’t solely from this methodology.

Electro Medical System’s success is predicated on our 4 pillars.

The primary pillar instantly pertains to the scientifically confirmed methodology of GBT, and this type of proof is critical in at the moment’s quickly evolving world of dentistry.

Our breakthrough merchandise, corresponding to prophylaxis, are our second pillar. These product milestones are crucial for the subsequent technology so rising dental professionals can clearly perceive that every part is transferring in the direction of enabling them to optimally take away biofilm.

The third pillar is the EMS steady management. We’re at all times attempting our greatest to reinforce the message of our scientifically confirmed proof in a method that each one trade professionals can profit. The Swiss Dental Academy strives to coach customers on using Guided Biofilm Remedy in essentially the most environment friendly method potential.
















The fourth and closing pillar is at all times placing our clients first to make sure their satisfaction with GBT and creating a novel buyer relationship. We wish to have the ability to give our sufferers the chance to take pleasure in pure, wholesome enamel, in addition to implants. These 4 pillars are the inspiration of Electro Medical System’s core mission to make sure we’re providing clinicians our full help.

Talking of the chance to supply sufferers profitable implant therapies, that was coincidentally my authentic intention of changing into a GBT coach. I wanted to discover a higher method to handle our implants — and we’ve got discovered it!

We all know that Guided Biofilm Remedy is the mission of EMS right here in Canada. Are you able to inform us extra about how and why it was developed?


Dr. Ernst hr

I feel it’s essential to notice that GBT isn’t solely supplied in Canada. That stated, the journey in Canada began in 2019 once we registered the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Grasp system. However eight months later, we had been hit with the unexpected circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. With practices closing their doorways, it was a protracted course of.

Guided Biofilm Remedy is knowledgeable oral hygiene therapy in dentistry, and was beforehand recognized for little or no, if not zero, innovation. And this isn’t only a assertion for Canada — it’s a worldwide assertion. It was essential to supply the shopper, our valued clinicians, a protocol that they’ll confidently depend on and a technique that the affected person can depend upon confidently. GBT exists for standardization and since periodontal illness is excessive on the record of power illnesses which can be essentially the most widespread. Greater than 15 p.c of the grownup inhabitants in the US endure from reasonable to extreme periodontal illness. The trade at present faces hygienist staffing shortages in practices, which is a big problem to navigate. The standard methodology of delivering hygiene and non-surgical periodontal therapies has turn into outdated. For instance, we’ve got an affiliation in Europe who’ve carried out checks with outcomes stating that 15 p.c of dentists utilizing the outdated, conventional strategies couldn’t ship 100% biofilm removing.

We knew we wanted to behave on these outcomes and discover a extra superior method just because EMS was, and at all times has been, within the sector of periodontal illness. I strongly imagine we’ve got crammed a spot with Guided Biofilm Remedy, and we proceed to make adjustments for the higher efficiently.


Chrissy Ford

I wish to contact on what you talked about about calibration and innovation. I began my consulting enterprise as a result of I needed to see extra calibration. I used to be pissed off with having sufferers go to my observe, beforehand witnessing a special state of care at different practices, and I knew there was a spot to fill. I used to be capable of convey GBT and put all of it underneath one wheel. Being immersed in dentistry for fairly a while, it was evident that not many inventions had been obtainable for hygienists. Our jobs can turn into irritating and stagnant at instances. In nearly 20 years of being a clinician, having one thing new has been very thrilling for the primary time.

Are you able to inform us how the workforce in Switzerland at EMS created this know-how with retaining the affected person expertise in thoughts?


Dr. Ernst Wühr

Our slogan at EMS, which is acknowledged globally within the dental trade, is “I really feel good.” And EMS selected this with a function and message in thoughts. After we had been creating the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Grasp system, we stored affected person expertise prime of thoughts, however most significantly, we had been at all times serious about the dental skilled. If the clinician feels good and has the required instruments to carry out an important job clinically, the affected person expertise will naturally be in good fingers.


“I really feel good”. What Extra can we ask from our sufferers!

The AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Grasp is a implausible product and, in my view, among the best units in at the moment’s dental trade. Nonetheless, the precise observe builder is GBT. Ultimately, it’s the affected person expertise that issues most when GBT therapies are appropriately delivered. The Swiss Dental Academy is likely one of the most intensive coaching institutes within the dental world, and we take satisfaction in coaching hundreds of clinicians to allow them to ship optimum therapies to their valued sufferers. Simply final yr, we gave greater than 300 programs worldwide. We not too long ago began a sizeable affected person survey, have already got greater than 70 thousand questionnaires accomplished, and the outcomes are wonderful. Sufferers are happy with the pain-free, Guided Biofilm Remedy, and plenty of are actually requesting it throughout their dental visits.

As a observe supervisor, we additionally ship out affected person surveys to higher perceive how we’re doing in our observe. Evaluations are coming again with constructive mentions of GBT, as some sufferers have by no means skilled such a high-tech cleansing.

I wish to speak extra concerning the idea of licensed GBT integration made potential solely by way of coaching with EMS trainers and the Oral Science workforce of dental hygienists. Are you able to inform us why EMS selected Oral Science to be its premier associate to supply Guided Biofilm Remedy?


Dr. Ernst Wühr

Oral Science has not solely totally understood our mission however has been keen to disrupt dentistry for the higher. Our mission is to combine GBT in dental clinics, which requires superior coaching and help for clinicians. Integration isn’t potential by EMS alone – it requires collaboration with a spotlight associate who has an analogous mission in Canada. It’s helpful that Oral Science is predicated on a nationwide community in Canada and may adequately ship the GBT message and clarify its worth to Canadian clinicians.
