Convergent Dental’s CO2 Laser Solea Wins’s Dental Excellence Awards


San Antonio, TX – October 14, 2014 — Convergent Dental Inc., a privately held dental device and technology company, announced that Solea™ was awarded’s Dental Excellence Award at ADA 2014 in San Antonio, TX. The Dental Excellence awards recognize the best and brightest in dentistry each year in eleven educational and product categories. The dental community voted Solea 2014’s “Best New Instrument/Device” from hundreds of entries and was presented by Editor in Chief Tony Edwards.


Solea is the world’s first-ever computer-aided CO2 laser to be cleared by the FDA for both hard and soft tissue procedures. The dental laser’s unique 9.3 µm wavelength consistently and reliably enables anesthesia-free dentistry, driving an immediate impact on dentists’ bottom line. 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. Solea’s anesthesia-free performance is so consistent that the company backs it up with a money-back guarantee. 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 all equates to thousands in potential revenues for practitioners.


“We are thrilled to be recognized as a leader in the dental community, with Solea being chosen as 2014’s best new product. It is a testament to the tireless work of my development team,” said Convergent Dental CEO Michael Cataldo. “This recognition further validates Solea’s success as a key solution for dentists looking to maximize the value of each appointment while delivering a memorable dental experience their patients will rave about.”
