Partnerships with health care professionals
Pierre Fabre Oral Care's strategy aims to stay true to its roots as a pharmaceutical laboratory: a medical solution for every problem affecting oral health. In this respect, Pierre Fabre Oral Care commits to supporting dental surgeons and pharmacists in their work.
Working closely with dental surgeons
To continuously satisfy consumer needs and requirements, Pierre Fabre Oral Care draws on the expertise of oral health professionals to develop products that are reliable, safe and meet their expectations. This is possible through remaining highly attentive to health care professionals and through the working group of dental surgeons and pharmacists set up within Pierre Fabre Oral Care.
Pierre Fabre Oral Care also supports dental surgeons in providing treatment, and in their educational role with their patients, by providing them with tailored educational tools for example.
Support for dental surgeons on dental anxiety issues
Managing anxiety related to dental care is one of the difficulties faced by dental surgeons on a daily basis.
The Pierre Fabre Oral Care laboratory has decided to provide support in this area by developing a training and information programme on the subject, to help them recognise anxious patients more easily, assess their level of anxiety and take care of them in the most appropriate way.
Strong commitment to the science of oral health
As part of its close relationship with health care professionals, Pierre Fabre Oral Care works in collaboration with learned societies to facilitate access to scientific news and data.
Its commitment to do so has forged close ties with numerous expert societies in order to promote research into oral health:
- SFPIO (French society of periodontology and oral implantology),
- IFRO (French institute for dental research),
- CNEP (French national college of periodontology teachers),
- SFOP (French society of paediatric dentistry),
- FDI (World dental federation),
- IFDH (International federation of dental hygienists).
Pierre Fabre Oral Care’s scientific investment also takes the form of significant collaboration with colleges and associations of dental surgeons in France and abroad.
Involvement in scientific dialogue
As an active player in the science of oral health, the Pierre Fabre Oral Care laboratory participates in seminars and scientific conferences in the field of dental care in France and abroad, such as:
- the ADF (French dental association) annual conference,
- the EFP (European federation of periodontology) conference: EURO PERIO
- the FDI (World dental federation) conference
- the IFDH (International federation of dental hygienists) conference: ISDH
Daily support for pharmacists
For selling its products on the market, Pierre Fabre Oral Care relies exclusively on prescriptions and the recommendation of health care professionals. The laboratory has therefore decided to sell all Pierre Fabre Oral Care products exclusively through pharmacies or health and beauty stores.
The laboratory can therefore communicate on the finer technical details concerning its products and oral hygiene in general, through the pharmacists. Pierre Fabre Oral Care thus guides pharmacists in their role of dispensing advice and dental products that fit each individual’s particular needs.
Pierre Fabre Oral Care also works alongside pharmacists on promotional and training activities. The laboratory assists pharmacists by developing oral hygiene education programmes, particularly for children and schools.
A closer look at ELUMED…
Elumed is a medical journal covering the major scientific highlights published in the field of oral health.
It is a joint project between the Pierre Fabre Oral Care medical department and certain learned societies such as SFPIO (French society of periodontology and oral implantology) and SFCO (French society of oral surgery).
“We provide health care professionals with awareness-raising tools and training material that are developed in partnership with learned societies in oral medicine. We share the same aim of promoting good oral hygiene habits from the earliest age.”
Sylvain Levet, Pierre Fabre Oral Care Medical Manager.
