The 2024 version of CDA Presents The Art + Science of Dentistry kicked off Thursday at the Anaheim Convention Center with more of what the industry has come to expect from the annual event—new product launches and product demonstrations, great educational courses, plenty of receptions, networking opportunities, and more.

The traffic on the trade show floor had many smiling as attendees shopped and looked to see what’s new in terms of products and technologies.

Attendees checked out latest dental technologies and services and talked with experts helping them find the right products to best fit their business needs. CDA runs through Saturday, with the Exhibit Hall opening 9:30 am each day. As activities at the hall wrapped up Thursday, the Dental Trade Alliance hosted one of several receptions planned for the week in Anaheim.

What’s New?

Several manufacturers are unveiling new products at CDA with others planned to be launched in the coming months.

Here’s just a brief snapshot of some of the happenings.

• Joe Persichetti, head of healthcare business banking, at U.S. Bank, and Suzanne Widing, National Healthcare Strategy Executive for U.S. Bank, met with Dental Products Report to talk about the latest solutions designed to assist clinicians with loans. The healthcare bankers specialize in dental and medical finance with a variety of business banking solutions for healthcare professionals.

• Curve Dental demonstrated some of the features of its SuperHero all-in-one practice management software at their booth on Thursday. The comprehensive software features Curve GRO patient engagement benefits and anywhere, anytime software access.

Mark Blount, vice president of marketing at Curve Dental, said the company is in the process of rolling out a new mobile app. The software solution also is already involved in artificial intelligence (AI) after teaming up with Pearl last year to offer Pearl’s Second Opinion®disease detection capabilities within SuperHero. This direct integration allows SuperHero users to use these AI clinical capabilities right in their PMS.

• Among the many dental instruments being showcased at the Nordent Instruments booth (#2330) included a newly launched set of original Hartzell Cone Socket Scalers and Curettes.

Carl Burton was excited to announce that the popular brand of instruments was behind this new line. Nordent partnered with Andy McIver-Hartzell to reintroduce these iconic instrument designs now backed by the company's quality manufacturing processes.
