JUPITER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Privately held Southern Implants, (Pty) Ltd. today announced the opening of its North American dental implant subsidiary located in Jupiter, Florida. Founder and Managing Director Graham Blackbeard tapped dental implant industry veterans, Lars Janson and Ed Sabin, to head the wholly-owned subsidiary as President and Chief Operating Officer, respectively.
Established in 1987, Southern Implants is the leading dental implant manufacturer in South Africa with successful international operations in Europe, the Middle East, and Australia. With the addition of Southern Implants North America (SINA), the fourth direct subsidiary formed by the parent company, Southern Implants expects to significantly outpace the dental implant industry’s six to seven percent market growth within the next five-year period. Globally, the dental implant industry captures $4 billion in sales, with the U.S. making up an estimated 25 to 30 percent of total sales.
Products designed and manufactured by Southern Implants solve complex oral care issues not offered by larger implant companies. “In this era of consolidation within the industry, the larger companies are distracted and not as focused on the specific needs of top-end specialists,” said Blackbeard. “As a privately held company, we are obsessed with quality and science and at the same time quick to turn around innovative treatment solutions to treat highly specialized procedures.”
SINA President, Lars Janson, will introduce the commercialization of the Company’s innovative treatment solutions to North American doctors focusing on the achievement of optimal patient outcomes through quality, science, and extensive education. “Our goal is to accelerate dental implant treatments without lengthy bone grafting procedures while also delivering uncompromised aesthetic results,” said Janson. “Southern Implants’ unique product designs and protocols are intended to accomplish just that.”
The SINA announcement coincides with the 2016 AAOMS Dental Implant Conference (DIC) held December 1-3 in Chicago, where the wholly-owned subsidiary will have a presence on the exhibition floor at booth 207. The DIC is one of the leading conferences focused on dental implant specialist teams, which is the ideal target market for Southern.
Dr. Stephen Chu, a global leader in aesthetic restorative and implant dentistry comments, “Southern Implants appears to be swimming against the natural tide of today’s dental implant market. While other companies appear to be focused on growing by accessing more generalists, Southern Implants is loyal to the specialist and the need to offer problem solving clinical solutions.”
Southern Implants has been a pioneer in the top-end specialist sector of the dental implant market since 1987, servicing maxillofacial and craniofacial surgeons, prosthodontists, periodontists and general dental practitioners alike. Our continually expanding product range includes both established and state-of-the-art technologies, enhanced by exceptional customer support. SINA is located in Jupiter, Florida.
