At the Greater New York Dental Meeting 2023, Dental Products Report had a chat with Suzanne Cano to discuss her invention, the LunaLite x-ray positioning system. [2 minutes]
Hi everyone. My name is Suzanne Cano, and I am the CEO and founder of LunaLite Dental. LunaLite is an automated laser guided dental x-ray positioner. So I invented this 5 years ago, actually it came from a dream. So my dream allowed me to see this device, and I woke up drawing this device.
So now we have the LunaLite device so that we don't have to use ring holders. As an ex-dental assistant, that was one of the things that I really hated was to take dental x-rays, and I would always miss the shot. So I invented this out of a dream, as I mentioned 5 years ago, and you put it on your x-ray unit. You're going to turn it on, and you're going to go through all of the angles that we have a program to. So if you're looking to take an upper molar, it's going to allow you to program it, you're going to position the x-ray unit and you're going to see that laser light pop up, and that's going to let you know that you caught the right angle, you can take the shot.
So it's a very simple little device, you can put it on any x-ray unit head, you can also put it on the mobile devices. The nice thing about the LunaLite is that it's simple and easy to use, and you can sterilize it with alcohol. You can put plastic over it if you do put plastic over your x-ray units. The laser goes right through it for you to take your shot. It doesn't weigh anything, and it also has a non-slip back so it's not going to slide off your cone. So I'm excited to be here. And I hope you guys can go to my website and take a look at the LunaLite device. Thank you.
