Chris Salierno, DDS, has joined Cellerant Consulting Group as a member of its Best of Class Technology Award panel of judges, which is now deliberating its 2018 award winners, and as a member of its chief development officer (CDO) team. CDOs provide early stage product design input, hands-on evaluation, and post-launch clinical education to Cellerant’s corporate clients.
“Chris is an important addition to the Cellerant CDO team,” said Cellerant CEO and founder Lou Shuman, DMD. “Chris has rapidly emerged as one of the most respected voices in the dental community, combining expert clinical knowledge with tremendous insights on the products and technology that will make modern dental practices successful for the future.”
Salierno is a practicing dentist in Long Island, NY, and the chief editor of Dental Economics. He also served as the national president of the American Student Dental Association and chair of the ADA New Dentist Committee. He lectures internationally on clinical dentistry, practice management, and leadership development as well.
“Dr. Shuman and the Cellerant team fill a unique position in accelerating the development and market growth of important new products and services for dental manufacturers,” said Salierno. “It’s clear from Cellerant’s client portfolio that they continue to attract the innovators of next-generation dental technologies. It’s an honor to join this team and work with this dynamic group of clients.”
“We have been fortunate that Cellerant has grown rapidly since its launch two years ago,” said Shuman. “It’s the perfect time and opportunity to add someone of Chris’s caliber to the team as a CDO. As a member of the Best of Class panel, Chris also brings great perspective to judging the best technologies from a practice growth perspective.”
