To DEXIS, With Pride

Posted by Team DEXIS

Pride_BOC_LogosWhen DEXIS adds a new product to its imaging brand, it’s going to be the best. When CariVu™ and DEXIS™ Imaging Suite both won “Best of Class” Technology Awards, we were thrilled to hear that technology leaders in the dental field agreed that those products achieved our lofty goals. Launched 7 years ago, “Best of Class” Technology Awards recognize innovative products that set a quality standard in their respective categories. The process is unbiased and non-profit, and the designation is awarded after a rigorous and uncompromising selection process. The panel, comprised of a respected group of technology leaders in dentistry, seeks out “game changing” products that they feel will have significant impact. There is no “check-box template” during the voting process. While some products are so new and different that they literally create their own category, some tried-and-true traditional products affirm their quality and class leadership year after year.
