INDIANAPOLIS, IN–(Marketwire – December 09, 2011) – AMD LASERS, a global leader in dental lasers and dental laser education, announced that the company’s founder and current president Alan Miller was recognized by a global media firm with the first annual 2011 Dental Tribune Award for Innovation.
The first annual Dental Tribune Awards ceremony occurred on November 28th at the Greater New York Dental Meeting, one of the largest dental exhibitions in the world. Dental Tribune International (DTI) President Torsten Oemus announced the first eight winners of these awards. Among those recognized included Dr. Adolfo Rodriguez, president of the Latin American Dental Federation and recipient of Outstanding Individual of the Year; and Samuel Prophete, president of the Haitian Dental Association, who received the award for Dentistry in a Crisis Zone. Dental Tribune International is one of the leading media firms in dentistry. The company’s various media initiatives reach 650,000 dentists annually in 91 countries.
“Dental Tribune International has played a key role in helping a Midwestern laser manufacturer become a recognized player in the global dental industry,” said Mr. Miller to those gathered at the ceremony. Since founding the company in mid-2008, AMD LASERS has rapidly become a global leader in bringing practical, effective, affordable dental laser technology to thousands of new laser dentists around the world. The company’s innovative manufacturing practices enabled Miller to offer a line of reliable dental lasers at unprecedented levels of affordability.
“We are grateful as a company to be recognized for doing something that we believe is truly helping patients around the world. Getting a laser in the hands of every dentist in every operatory — that remains our mission,” said Miller. In mid-2011, DENTSPLY International, a global leader in providing better dentistry, acquired AMD LASERS.
This most recent award from DTI is just one of several awards, honors and recognition from the dental profession in 2011. In the last few months, AMD LASERS has been recognized with awards such as Dental Products Report “Top 100” 2011, Dental Products Report “Editor’s Choice” 2011, and Dentistry Today’s “Top 50 Technology Products”. AMD LASERS and Picasso laser technology have also been recognized by non-dental associations for innovation, design, and technology as well as company growth.
