Convergent Dental Demonstrates Powerful Efficiencies of Solea Dental Laser at ADA Annual Meeting 2014

Solea Dentists Significantly Increases Production to Generate Thousands in Additional Monthly Revenues

 

San Antonio, TX – ADA Annual Meeting 2014 – October 9, 2014Convergent Dental Inc., a privately held dental device and technology company, announced that it will be showcasing its Solea dental laser at ADA Annual Meeting 2014 (Booth #2632) in San Antonio, TX from October 9-14, 2014. Solea is the world’s first CO2 9.3 micron, computer-aided laser system cleared by the FDA for both hard and soft tissue and delivers a virtually anesthesia-free/pain-free patient experience. Solea dentists report that the efficiency of anesthesia-free dentistry has an immediate impact on their practice’s bottom line and patients love the new experience.

 

Solea dentists report that 95 percent of their hard and soft tissue Solea procedures are done with no anesthesia and soft tissue procedures are done with virtually no bleeding. Not numbing patients and bloodless soft tissue cutting provides practitioners with the opportunity to work in multiple quadrants in one visit, perform same-day fillings and conduct soft-tissue procedures they would have referred out previously. This saves hours of chair time that add up quickly for dentists. Adding just two additional procedures per day – a feat virtually all Solea dentists are achieving – brings in around $8,000 in additional revenue per month. An additional six procedures per day could bring in almost $24,000 per month. Considering a typical monthly payment of $1,600 per month, this makes Solea one of the best technology investments a dentist could make.

 

“The efficiency gain from anesthesia-free, virtually bloodless dentistry has enabled a 40% increase in daily procedure volume over what I could do with my old erbium laser,” said Dr. Don Wilson, DDS, MDS. “It’s a direct result of not waiting for patients to get numb, not spending time controlling bleeding and working in all four quadrants in a single visit. And all of that is before you add in increased referrals that result from the dramatically improved patient experience.”

 

Convergent Dental will have Solea units available for demos on the ADA 2014 exhibition floor at Booth #2632. The company guarantees that at least 90 percent of Solea users’ hard- and soft-tissue procedures will be anesthesia-free after a 90-day trial or they can return the unit and get their money back. If you’re interested in making an appointment at the show, contact Convergent Dental via email at gosolea@convergentdental.com or call 1-800-GO-SOLEA (1-800-467-6532).

 

“Solea delivers on what dentists had hoped for from all-tissue lasers: anesthesia-free, pain-free dentistry in less time than the drill. We know it works and that is why we stand behind it with an anesthesia-free guarantee. Solea enables better dentistry, a better patient experience and a phenomenal return on investment,” said Convergent Dental CEO Michael Cataldo. “That is as unique as our wavelength”
