Convergent Dental Recognized As One of Streetwise Media’s 2015 “50 on Fire Boston” Companies
Natick, MA — December 16, 2015 – Convergent Dental, Inc., a privately held dental device company, was honored as one of the Boston area’s most innovative “Healthcare and Medicine” companies during Streetwise Media’s annual 50 on Fire Boston event. The 50 on Fire Boston awards highlight the year’s most groundbreaking individuals and organizations across a variety industries.
“Each year, we are increasingly impressed with the nominations we receive for 50 on Fire,” said Streetwise Media President, Leslie Garbarino. “These nominees are a representation of the great work companies in Boston are doing for the innovation economy in our city and beyond.”
Convergent Dental was chosen from over 1,500 nominations of the city’s top innovators. The company’s success comes from its flagship product, Solea®. Solea is the world’s first computer-aided CO2 9.3 micron dental laser cleared by the FDA for cutting and contouring hard tissue, soft tissue and bone in the oral cavity. The dental laser’s unique wavelength enables dentists to work virtually anesthesia-free on both hard and soft tissue. For soft tissue surgeries, this results in little to no bleeding sutures and the typical post-operative discomfort for the patient. Operating virtually anesthesia-free and blood-free significantly increases production as dentists can work in multiple quadrants in a single visit, fill cavities discovered during hygiene checks and perform soft tissue procedures they would have previously referred out.
“We are so proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in such a short time,” said Convergent Dental CEO, Michael Cataldo. “Our relentless commitment to innovation is paying off for our dentists, and their patients and this is just the beginning.”
