Rounding up winners of this year’s big tech award.

Each year, a team of dental experts meets in Chicago - often long into the night! - for a spirited discussion about the Cellerant Best of Class awards. These awards are not given out haphazardly; each member who votes carefully weighs the pros and cons of every considered product, and the final winners are the ones who really did blow away the voting panel. 2017’s award-winning products are no different - these technologies are game-changers and will be talked about for years to come in the dental industry.
