DECIDED EACH YEAR BY A PANEL OF DENTAL TECHNOLOGY EXPERTS following the Chicago Midwinter Meeting, the Best of Class Technology Awards recognize the dental products—from software, to materials, to lasers, and everything in between—that are redefining what it means to practice dentistry.
Formerly sponsored by the Pride Institute, the Best of Class Technology Awards are now sponsored by Cellerant Consulting Group. While the name has changed, what the awards stand for has not—they remain unbiased and not-for-profit under the leadership of Lou Shuman, DMD, CAGS, and they continue to be what many call the Academy Awards of the dental industry.
The editors of Dental Economics and DentistryIQ are pleased to present this year's award winners, listed below in alphabetical order.
