“At a time when our selection panel has observed a slowdown in overall new product innovation from the dental industry, this year’s slate of winners really stands apart,” said Dr. Marty Jablow, one of Cellerant’s Chief Development Officers and a Best of Class Panel Member. In any given year the Best of Class panel may decline to elect a winner in a category where there is no clear technology leader. “We don’t recommend technologies arbitrarily to fit a preconceived number of winners or categories,” said Dr. Jablow. “To be designated as Best of Class, the products and the companies that provide them must truly make a difference to patient care and the dental practice,” added Dr. Shuman.
“Best of Class” Technology Award winners are showcased at the ADA annual meeting. Dental professionals have the unique opportunity to speak with each company and interact with the award-winning products at the Technology Expo in the Exhibit Hall. The Technology Expo also offers free continuing education taught by the leading experts in technology integration and social media. More information can be found online at ADA.org/meeting.
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 selection process relies on an expert panel of dentists recognized as thought leaders and educators that includes Dr. Paul Feuerstein, Dr. John Flucke, Dr. Marty Jablow, Dr. Parag Kachalia and Dr. Lou Shuman. 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 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.
