The prestigious Pride Institute grants esteemed honors to CariVu and DEXIS Imaging Suite for their benefits to the dental practice.
Hatfield, PA (July 21, 2015) DEXIS, LLC, a brand of the KaVo Kerr Group, is pleased to announce that the Pride Institute has presented DEXIS CariVu and DEXIS Imaging Suite with Best of Class Technology Awards for 2015 as products that demonstrate excellence in dental innovation in their respective categories. The Pride Institute “Best of Class” Technology awards were launched 7 years ago as a new concept to provide an unbiased, non-profit assessment of available technologies in the dental space. In 2015, DEXIS CariVu and DEXIS Imaging Suite once again met the rigorous criteria for being “Best of Class,” standing out as innovative products that can positively impact dentists’ daily work.
CariVu technology detects caries* without ionizing radiation. The compact and portable device uses patented transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks. And, with images that read like familiar X-ray images, this unit functions unlike any other caries detection device. Another defining aspect of CariVu is its impressive accuracy rate of 99%.*
DEXIS Imaging Suite software has a dynamic history of bringing leading imaging solutions to general dentists and specialists alike. Recognized for its functionality, the software has many unique features that save the practitioner time as well as seamless integration between imaging and the practice management programs, intra-oral cameras, digital panoramic systems and select 3D products.
“Best of Class” Founder, Dr. Lou Shuman, noted, “The ‘Best of Class’ Technology Award continues unparalleled in its integrity and approach to recognizing excellence in dental innovation. Two DEXIS products, the CariVu caries detection device and DEXIS imaging suite, met our distinguished panel’s criteria for adding value to the dental practice and setting a quality standard. CariVu’s transillumination technology offers diagnostic information on caries in a form that is not available in any other current technology. DEXIS Imaging Suite blends technology, integration and functionality for DEXIS users. We recognize DEXIS for its continuing commitment in creating leading edge technologies in the dental space.”
Director of Marketing for DEXIS, Rick Matty said, “DEXIS is honored to accept the ‘Best of Class’ Technology Award. The DEXIS team appreciates the knowledge, experience, and many hours of research that the esteemed panel has dedicated to this arduous process.
