n Convergent Dental, a privately held dental equipment and technol- ogy company, today announced it has partnered with Benco Dental, one of thelargestprivatelyowned,full-serv- ice distributors 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 abla- tion, to its 35,000 customers nation- wide. “We are thrilled to add an excit- ing new product to our portfolio with proven capabilities to greatly impact our customers’ bottom line and patient experience,” said Benco Dental Vice President of Marketing Paul Jackson. An array of dental lasers has been on the market for the past 30 years, but Solea is the first to enable reliable anesthesia-free and blood-free proce- dures, according to Convergent. “Benco Dental’s decision to select Solea for its product portfolio speaks volumes about Convergent Dental and this dental laser,” said Dr. Hugh Flax,aSoleauserandlong-timeBenco Dental customer. “Having replaced my erbium laser with Solea’s advanced CO2 technol- ogy, it is clear to me that Solea rep- resents 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 den- tiststodeliveranentirelynewpatient experience.” Solea dentists 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, according to Convergent. The company asserts that dentists thus routinely perform six or more additional procedures per day as a result. “We are honored to partner with Benco Dental, one of the most respected, professional and knowl- edgeabledentalsuppliersinthecoun- try,” said Convergent Dental CEO Michael Cataldo. “Our corporate cultures are per- fectly aligned, with the focus being squarely on delivering on our prom- ises to our customers above all else. That priority is certain to drive ongo- ing success for Convergent, Benco Dental and the customers we have in common.” exhibitors32 Chicago Midwinter Meeting — February 26, 2015 Benco, Convergent partner; expand Solea’s reach Ad 5 The Solea laser system (Photo/Robert Selleck, today Staff) Here in Chicago For more information or to see the Solea, or stop by the booth, No. 4237.
