About the Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award

Since the inaugural presentation in 2009, the Best of Class Technology Awards have grown to occupy a unique space in dentistry by creating awareness in the community of manufacturers that are driving the discussion as to how practices will operate now and in the future.

The 2021 Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award winners were selected by a panel of the most prominent technology leaders in dentistry: Paul Feuerstein, DMD, Editor-In- Chief for Dentistry Today, John Flucke, DDS, Technology Editor for Dental Products Report, Marty Jablow, DMD, known as America’s technology coach, Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, DMD, Editor-In-Chief of Dental Economics, Chris Salierno, DDS, Editor-In-Chief of Dental Economics, and Lou Shuman, DMD, CAGS, founder and creator of the Best of Class Technology Awards.

Over the course of each year, the panel members seek out and conduct research on potentially practice-changing technologies, with deliberations on nominees and final voting typically taking place in February. Panelists are precluded from voting in any category where they have consulting relationships. The entire selection process is conducted and managed on a not-for-profit basis.
