In the ever-evolving world of dental technology, where precision, practicality, and innovation reign supreme, the Cellerant Best of Class Technology Awards have been a beacon of recognition for excellence. For the 14th consecutive year, this prestigious award celebrates both established technologies that have stood the test of time and disruptive newcomers that promise to reshape the dental industry. With an unbiased selection committee, the Cellerant Best of Class Technology Awards celebrate the commitment to advance patient care and innovation. This panel of technology experts scour national, international, and regional dental conferences to discover and meticulously evaluate each technology and consider its impact on patient care and outcomes, ease of use, and potential for widespread adoption. Their dedication to fairness (this is a not-for-profit initiative by Cellerant Consulting Group) ensures that only the most deserving technologies receive recognition.
