Gendex Announces Innovative New Products at the 2011 IDS Dental Show, Cologne, Germany




This is the first anyone has heard of this. I've known about them for a while, but was sworn to secrecy. The good news for you readers, is that Gendex agreed that in return for my keeping this close to the vest, I could break the story.

Much of the dental world is converging on Cologne, Germany to see the world's largest dental trade show.

The IDS show happens only every other year and because of that, it's a really big deal for the industry. It's also a great place for companies to debut their latest cutting edge products to the profession.

My friends at Gendex are no exception and have taken the occasion of the IDS meeting to announce 2 new panoramic radiographic units.

As most of you know, I'm a huge fan of 3D cone beam imaging. I've been a user for over 3 years now and I continue to be impressed on an almost daily basis without how much information I receive and how much I learn from studying scans. Seeing your patients in 3D flat out allows you to provide better treatment and achieve better outcomes.

I've been a fan of the "medium field of view" devices since they became available because they allow the doctor to view the necessary areas while keeping the exposure to the patient as low as possible.

However, some offices have held off on 3D due to costs and when it comes to 3D, the greater the viewing area, the greater the cost of the device.

That's why I'm so excited by this Gendex announcement. They now have a panoramic unit that can take a limited field of view 3D scan in addition to all the functionality you've come to expect in a panoramic unit from Gendex.

Here is the press release:


Gendex is dedicated to remaining a leading innovator in dentistry. Following the success of the 2010 introduction of our innovative Gendex GXS-700 Digital Sensor, Gendex is pleased to introduce an exciting array of new products March 22-26 at the 2011 IDS Dental Show in Cologne, Germany.


This new portfolio of products will further strengthen
Gendex’s position as a leader in innovation as well as a manufacturer committed to excellence in quality, intelligent design, and function.

At this year’s IDS, we are unveiling these exciting new products:

GXDP-300™ - an exciting new entry-level panoramic unit
GXDP-700™ - our new, high-end panoramic with optional 3D functionality

These new products will be officially launched to our North American customers later in 2011.
