W&H at IDS 2023 – a sneak preview of the trade fair highlights

This March, the International Dental Show in Cologne will once again play host to the dental industry’s key players as they showcase new products, forward-thinking technologies and innovative concepts for dental practices and laboratories. W&H is now giving a sneak preview of its trade fair highlights and product innovations. In the spirit of the W&H trade fair slogan ‘From innovative products to sustainable solutions’, W&H’s appearance at the trade fair will focus on its sustainable product and service solutions.

The International Dental Show (IDS) will be held in Cologne from 14 to 18 March 2023. Visitors to the W&H booths will be able to experience the W&H ProService live for the first time, as well as numerous product innovations. The medical device manufacturer will also be showcasing attractive special offers for the trade fair, digital highlights, and interesting product presentations. And it’s not just W&H products that are sustainable, it’s also the climate-neutral trade fair booth that the company is taking to IDS 2023.

Experience product highlights live

W&H’s trade fair appearance will focus on the medical device manufacturer’s sustainable product solutions, from the Piezomed module to the Lara XL and Assistina One. But, aside from their superior quality, high-quality materials, and long lifespan, what is it that makes these products particularly sustainable? 

The Piezomed module, W&H’s product innovation in the area of oral surgery, impresses with its modular design, which allows the device to be adapted to users’ specific requirements. The Lara XL has been developed by W&H with one eye to the future: the state-of-the-art technology inside the sterilizer has been designed in such a way that it can be adapted to future requirements and therefore guarantees extensive connectivity and upgradeability. Straight and contra-angle handpieces, turbine handpieces, air motors and air-powered scalers can be perfectly processed and maintained at the push of a button using the Assistina One. This maintenance device automatically dispenses the exact amount of W&H Service Oil and W&H Activefluid required. This means instruments can be sustainably maintained while also saving on both resources and costs.

“We enjoy providing sustainable health solutions. At W&H, our ambition is to develop innovative products for sustainable overall solutions in the healthcare sector,” explains W&H’s Managing Director Peter Malata.
