To show our gratitude, we rewarded them with a film session, so that they could all get together to enjoy the hit movie “Jurassic World”. The event enjoyed a successful turnout!

NEW KIN INTERDENTAL BRUSHES

In May, Laboratorios KIN launched the new KIN Interdental Brushes onto the market; they were also presented at the latest Iberia Convention, creating a lot of buzz among our sales team.
There are 5 models of these new angled interdental brushes: KIN INTERDENTAL ULTRAMICRO, SUPERMICRO, MICRO, MINI and CONICAL. With them, we are able to cover the most common interdental space diameters. Their angled handle makes it easier to access the front and rear interdental spaces and they also come with a ventilated cap to protect the interdental brush.
This new launch complements the KIN range of brushes and accessories, further promoting our brand image.

Laboratorios KIN provides support in El Salvador

At the start of May last year, El Salvador experienced a number of earthquakes in the eastern part of the country, resulting in the destruction of numerous homes.
As a result, government officials travelled to the area to distribute essential goods. Laboratorios KIN worked together with the distributor (Integral) to deliver products and help to ease those difficult times for the affected families.

Office relocation

On 23 April 2018, we officially moved to our new offices at Avenida Diagonal 200, only a few metres away from our old headquarters. So we left the premises that had been home to Laboratorios KIN’s headquarters since 1985, for more modern offices.

SEPA Seville

The Spanish Society of Periodontology and Osseointegration (SEPA) held its annual congress on the 12th, 13th and 14th of April. Kin was present with a new stand, so that we could launch our new brand architecture image and, in particular, the new image and name of one of the key brands in our periodontal range: KIN Gingival Complex.

Cooperation with SAY YES RALLY

Laboratorios KIN cooperated with the SAY YES RALLY organisation in Morocco, whose goal is to supply basic goods to dozens of Berber villages. Given the location of these villages, there is little accessibility to provide aid. Thanks to donations of this kind, we are reaffirming our commitment to help provide oral healthcare for the most disadvantaged people.

Events attended by our Portuguese coleagues

Laboratorios KIN attended a number of major conferences in Portugal: APHO (Associação Portuguesa de Higienistas Orais), FMUP (FacultadeMedicina Universidade Porto), ULSBA (Unidade Local de Saúde do Bajo Minho) and SPPI (SOC. PORTUGUESA DE PERIODONTOLOGIA E IMPLANTES).
Attending those conferences allows us to get together with dentistry professionals and present our latest products and give our collaborative image a boost. There was a great deal of interest in our products at each event.

Participation in the Central American Congress of the FAOCA

This year, the Federation of Orthodontic Associations of Central America (FAOCA) held its Central American Congress in Panama City, bringing together all practising orthodontists. We were able to attend and promote our brands, such as OrthoKIN and KIN Care Gel.
Various training sessions were also held for our products, such as the training given to the students of paediatric dentistry from the University of Panama and the training for the Juan Diaz Health Centre’s Programme for the Elderly, as part of the activities for Oral Health Week.
