DEXIS CariVu Showcased At The Upcoming American Dental Association Annual Session

DEXISTM CariVuTM wins “Best of Class” for the third year in a row and is presented in the ADA Tech Expo booth.
Hatfield, PA (October 19, 2016) DEXISTM, a brand of the KaVo Kerr Group, proudly announces that its caries detection device, CariVu, is the winner of the Cellerant Best of Class Award (formerly known as the Pride Best of Class Technology Awards) for the third year in a row. The company is eager to showcase its caries detection capabilities at the annual American Dental Association Tech Expo in Denver from October 20-24. Launched eight years ago, the Best of Class Technology Awards recognize innovative products that set a quality standard in their respective categories. The award, handed out annually since 2009, was created by Dr. Lou Shuman, Cellerant Consulting Group CEO, to recognize innovations in dental technology. Cellerant describes it this way, “To be designated Best of Class is a sign that a product has revolutionized, simplified, or advanced its category in a distinctive way.”
As a caries detection device that utilizes transillumination technology, CariVu offers a new approach to supporting the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks — with a phenomenal accuracy rate of 99 percent*. CariVu images are similar in appearance to X-rays, but its technology does not emit any ionizing radiation. For this reason, the device is a perfect option for patients whose medical histories preclude radiation, children, or those who just refuse X-rays. As part of a comprehensive imaging protocol, CariVu can detect certain types of caries that are not yet visible on X-rays**, in some cases allowing for smaller, and therefore longer-lasting restorations. In addition, using CariVu during routine prophylaxis can aid the clinician in identifying questionable areas early on and decide on a course of care.
With the recent release of CariVu 2.0 software, clinicians can now benefit even more when using CariVu on a daily basis. This latest update incorporates noteworthy enhancements including:
  •   A fully redesigned interface with a sleek modern look and additional intuitive, streamlined functionality
  •   Same-tooth comparison aid that helps in acquiring new images that are the same size and orientation
    as previous images
  •   On-screen indicators that provide positioning guidance to achieve the clearest image results
    “Best of Class” honorees are chosen by a panel comprised of leading voices in dental technology who come together each year to discuss, debate and decide what products merit recognition. Panelist Dr. Marty Jablow noted, “When we decide that a product should be honored, it is because we see the value it brings to dentists and patients in a real-world context, and that matters to the dental professionals who use lists such as this one in their research and purchasing decisions.”
    “At DEXIS, we are thrilled that CariVu once again was honored to be designated ‘Best of Class’,” stated Marshall Martin, Senior Product Manager for DEXIS. “We are proud to bring dental professionals a device that can take their practices to a higher level of patient care.”
