Convergent Dental Inc., a privately held dental equipment and technology company, announced it has partnered with Benco Dental, the largest privately owned, full-service distributor of dental supplies, dental equipment, dental consulting and equipment services in the United States.
Effective immediately, Benco Dental will offer Solea, the first FDA-approved, CO2 9.3 micron dental laser for hard and soft tissue ablation, to its 30,000 customers nationwide. Solea reportedly fits perfectly into the dental distributor’s portfolio of innovative products and services that are said to empower practitioners to efficiently perform more procedures and facilitate revenue growth.
“We are thrilled to add an exciting new product to our portfolio with proven capabilities to greatly impact our customers’ bottom line and patient experience,” said Paul Jackson, Benco Dental vice President of marketing.
An array of dental lasers have been on the market for the past 30 years, but Solea is said to be the first to enable reliable anesthesia-free and blood-free procedures.
“Benco Dental’s decision to select Solea for its product portfolio speaks volumes about Convergent Dental and this dental laser,” said Dr. Hugh Flax, a Solea user and long-time Benco Dental customer. “Having replaced my erbium laser with Solea’s advanced CO2 technology, it is clear to me that Solea represents an entirely new paradigm in dentistry. Joining forces with one of the most trusted dental suppliers in North America is a tremendous union that will make it easier for more dentists to deliver an entirely new patient experience.”
Solea dentists reportedly save time from not injecting or waiting for patients to get numb, enabling four-quadrant dentistry and bloodless procedures that they would not have performed with traditional tools. They routinely perform six or more additional procedures per day as a result. Convergent Dental’s partnership with Benco Dental reportedly will help more practitioners increase their efficiency, decrease chairtime and grow their revenues.
“We are honored to partner with Benco Dental, one of the most respected, professional and knowledgeable dental suppliers in the country. Our corporate cultures are perfectly aligned, with the focus being squarely on delivering on our promises to our customers above all else,” Convergent Dental CEO Michael Cataldo said. “That priority is certain to drive ongoing success for Convergent, Benco Dental and the customers we have in common.”
