CONSHOHOCKEN, Pennsylvania--Brain-Pad, a leader in athletic products that reduce the risk of concussions while increasing endurance and performance, has announced being named among the top new products at the Henry Schein Dental Nntional sales meeting held Aug. 5-8, 2010, in Washington, D.C.

Eight top products were chosen, including the Brain-Pad dual-arch mouth guard and Brain-Pad's NatureZone UV/Ozone sanitizing and deodorizing chamber for oral appliances.

Henry Schein provides health-care professionals with a range of products and services to enhance patient care and improve practice productivity. The Henry Schein Dental national sales meeting is one of the dental industry's largest gatherings with nearly 2,000 people in attendance, including more than 1,100 Henry Schein Dental sales representatives.

The company's field sales consultants were asked to vote on products from the 89 exhibiting supplier partners. The top products were chosen based on uniqueness, the educational value of the presentations, and overall impressions about which products stood out the most.

"Henry Schein is always a step ahead when it comes to innovation which is why we are so honored to be recognized among these top products," said Joe Manzo, president of Brain-Pad.

"Our mouth guards and sanitizing chamber address two major concerns for dental patients during this upcoming back-to-school season and throughout the entire year-the threat of concussion injuries in sports-related activities and the spread of germs on oral appliances like mouth guards, night guards, and retainers. Through our relationship with Henry Schein, we have been able to provide our solutions to more dentists across the country to help patients protect themselves and their dental investments."

Brain-Pad's flagship product is its line of dual-arch athletic mouth guards proven to reduce the risk of concussions from lower jaw impact. Unlike traditional mouth guards that offer protection for either the upper or lower teeth only, Brain-Pad is a dual arch, bi-molar mouth guard.

Also named a top product was NatureZone, a UV/Ozone sanitizing and deodorizing chamber that destroys germs and bacteria on oral appliances, including mouth guards, retainers, dentures, and night guards in just three minutes.

"The Henry Schein field sales consultants embraced the idea of a mouth guard that provides protection from concussions by design and the NatureZone product to maintain a clean and bacteria-free appliance," said Jeffrey Rovell, PhD.

"Brain-Pad has been in business for 15 years and has developed a mouth guard unlike any others that stabilizes both the upper and lower jaw thus protecting the brain from the shocks typically transmitted through the TMJ. With its NatureZone product, the company is also addressing infection control, a significant part of athletics on the field and in the locker room. It's a great combination for dentists and their patients."

Added Tim Sullivan, president of Henry Schein Dental: "We are very pleased that Brain-Pad was chosen as a new Top Product at this year's National Sales Meeting. We welcome the opportunity to work with this innovative company to address the growing concerns about concussions in contact sports and help protect young athletes."
