Convergent Dental Unveils Major Breakthroughs in Usability and Performance with Solea 3.0

Anaheim, CA – May 12, 2016 – Convergent Dental Inc. today announced the release of Solea 3.0, revolutionary new software that dramatically enhances Solea’s® industry-leading anesthesia-free and blood-free performance. Convergent Dental has simplified the number one selling all-tissue dental laser’s workflow to allow dentists to cut any tissue without changing any settings. Dentists simply turn Solea on, direct the beam at the desired tissue and step on the variable speed foot pedal. The one-setting-fits-all-approach works for tooth structure, bone, and soft tissue and enables any dentist to reliably perform anesthesia-free, blood-free, suture-free, and pain-free procedures. Dentists interested in experiencing the dental laser’s new, powerful Solea 3.0 software first-hand can stop by booth #670 at CDA Presents Anaheim: 2016 taking place May 12-14, 2016.

“When we introduced Solea we changed the paradigm. Now, with Solea 3.0, we’ve changed it again by designing software so simple every dentist can be a laser dentist. Solea 3.0 is like a car with an automatic transmission - you simply turn it on, step on the pedal and go. Anesthesia-free and blood-free procedures are now well within reach for any dentist. I don’t know what’s better: the fact that Solea 3.0 is easy to use or that it cuts 2.5 times faster1 and 5 times smoother2 than the previous software version,” said Convergent Dental CEO Michael Cataldo. “I’m also proud of the fact that this major enhancement can be delivered via Wi-Fi to any Solea and is free as part of our service plan. Our dentists are telling us that Solea 3.0 is faster, smoother, and easier to use with many approaching 100 percent anesthesia-free for 100 percent of their cavity preps regardless of enamel thickness or the depth of the preparation3.”

One Setting No Matter What the Tissue

Solea 3.0 offers a single setting for any tissue so dentists don’t have to think about which setting to use for which procedure or change settings during a procedure. They simply press softer on the foot pedal for softer tissues and press harder on the foot pedal for harder tissues.

Dramatic Performance Improvement Delivered via Wi-Fi

Solea 3.0 is faster, smoother, and easier to use. Amazingly, this is all enabled by the latest software update delivered automatically via Wi-Fi.

“This new software makes me feel like I’m using an entirely new laser,” said Dr. Ryan Slaten. “The ‘cut’ is the smoothest and fastest I’ve ever seen. Best of all, Solea 3.0 was delivered over Wi-Fi – no hardware changes required. All that and it was included for free in my service contract!”
