ATLANTA—For the third year in a row, Carestream Dental is a presenting sponsor of CDA Cares, a two day event organized by the California Dental Association (CDA) and the CDA Foundation which gives volunteer dentists the opportunity to provide dental services at no charge to those who experience barriers to dental care.
“We’re so pleased that the CDA Foundation has once again put their trust in Carestream Dental to provide all the imaging equipment for CDA Cares.” Shauna Holliday, director of U.S. regional sales for Carestream Dental, said. “Carestream Dental is committed to providing dentists and patients with cutting edge technology that results in faster, more accurate diagnoses; this event, coupled with Carestream Dental’s systems and expertise, improves the lives of thousands of patients.”
Carestream Dental is exclusively supplying three extraoral imaging systems—two CS 9000 Extraoral Imaging Systems and a CS 8100 Digital Panoramic System—and 14 RVG 6100 Digital Radiography Systems, as well as the expertise of its staff and volunteers who will oversee the imaging station.
The CS 9000 captures top-quality panoramic X-ray images quickly and easily, and features low-dose radiation exposure to ensure patient safety. The ultra-compact CS 8100 is an award-winning panoramic imaging system that produces clear and sharp digital images that are ready for review almost immediately. The RVG 6100, Carestream Dental’s most popular intraoral sensor, displays images in less than two seconds and provides exceptional image resolution.
“We appreciate the donations provided by our CDA Cares sponsors, including the X-ray equipment from Carestream Dental,” Don Rollofson, D.M.D., CDA Foundation chair, said. “X-rays are an essential part of the care we provide to our patients, helping us to diagnose dental disease and plan each patient’s treatment.”
All the equipment provided by Carestream Dental is able to capture digital images within seconds, meaning faster diagnoses from doctors and less waiting time for patients. Considering that past CDA Cares events have seen well over 2,000 patients, fast, accurate results are all the more vital to ensure that the most patients are served.
Just as important as the cutting edge technology, Carestream Dental is also providing the volunteer hours and exceptional expertise of its employees to oversee the imaging station for both days of the event.
CDA Cares Solano takes place April 25-26, Solano County Fairgrounds, McCormack and Expo Halls, Vallejo, Calif. Patients will receive cleanings, fillings, extractions, oral health education and resources for finding a dentist for follow-up care.
