Ultradent Products’ Gemini 810 + 980 diode laser and VALO curing light family have been selected as 2017 recipients of the Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award. It is the fifth time that the VALO curing light family and the first time that the Gemini 810 + 980 diode laser have been recognized with this honor.
“Being selected as a Best of Class winner acknowledges companies that create the innovative dental technologies that will help shape the future of our profession,” said Best of Class founder and CEO of Cellerant Lou Shuman, DMD.
“Ultradent is truly honored to receive this award for both the VALO family of curing lights and our newly launched Gemini diode laser,” said Ultradent global brand manager of equipment Mike Simmons. “We strive to bring value to the dentist through innovative products, and the VALO curing lights and Gemini laser portray this goal perfectly.”
The Gemini 810 + 980’s dual-wave technology combines the optimal absorption of the 810-nm wavelength and optimal water absorption of the 980-nm wavelength. The tip of the laser illuminates the oral cavity for better visibility at the surgical site. Also, the device’s transparent electroluminescent display offers 19 preset procedures for ease of use.
The VALO curing light’s multiwavelength LED and optimally collimated beam enable it to polymerize all dental materials. Its low-profile wand-style body and large curing head footprint are designed to provide unprecedented access to the oral cavity.
Plus, each VALO light is precision milled from a solid bar of aircraft aluminum for unsurpassed durability, the company says. The VALO Cordless is available in graphite, gold, fuchsia, and purple. The VALO Grand offers a 50% larger lens and an additional curing light on the underside of the wand.
“We research the best available technologies for an entire year leading up to the announcement of award winners,” said Marty Jablow, DMD, of Cellerant. “To be selected as a Best of Class after all of that scrutiny and deliberation means that our panel is confident in recommending winning technologies to our peers.”
