NuSmile Partners with Dentalhitec


NuSmile Ltd. announced its partnership with Dentalhitec, a manufacturer of innovative osteocentral anesthesia devices based in Mazières-en-Mauges, France.

Dentalhitec was founded in 1997 by French dental surgeon Dr. Alain Villette to enhance comfort for patients and reduce stress and lost time for practitioners by introducing a revolutionary electronic anesthesia system. Despite its over 25 years of successful growth, Dentalhitec believes that literature reports of ID block failure rates of up to 30 percent make it clear that too many dental practices are still using ineffective anesthesia techniques.

“Dentalhitec is thrilled to partner with NuSmile to promote our pain-free, progressive electronic injection system in North America,“ said Hamad Sargazi, Business Development Manager for Dentalhitec.

The first two lightweight, ergonomically-designed Dentalhitec products sold by NuSmile in the U.S. will be the SleeperOne® and Soan electronic injection pens. Types of anesthesia supported by the SleeperOne and Soan injection pens include osteocentral for children, intraligamentary, intraseptal (subcrestal), infiltration, and ID nerve blocks.

Both products will have their official U.S. launch at NuSmile’s booths (#906 and #907) at the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Meeting in Orlando, Florida May 26-28, 2023.

"Pain is a major criterion for a patient’s appraisal of how good their dentist is. The Dentalhitec system brings an innovative new approach to providing osteocentral anesthesia in a safe, painless way to pediatric dental patients. This is truly a game changer in Pediatric Dentistry," said Diane Krueger, Founder and CEO of NuSmile.

Under Diane’s leadership, the Company invented and introduced one of the world’s first prefabricated esthetic pediatric crowns: NuSmile Signature Pre-veneered Crowns. The popularity of NuSmile crowns rapidly grew due to their life-like esthetics and durability and the Company’s reputation for excellent customer service and support. By 2005, NuSmile Signature was independently cited as the world’s number one- selling esthetic crown. In 2012, the Company introduced the NuSmile ZR full coverage zirconia crown system featuring exclusive Try-In crowns that eliminate saliva/blood contamination and ensure successful retention of the restoration. In 2016, NuSmile acquired Avalon Biomed Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) pulp therapy products.
