    June 18, 2012 South Jordan, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc., global manufacturer and distributor of dental materials and equipment, receives Pride Institute’s highest honor for its innovation in dental curing technology. Voted as a “Best of Class” technology, Ultradent’s VALO was one of only 18 products honored by the prestigious Pride Leadership Panel.

    The Pride Institute “Best of Class” Technology Award has achieved significant recognition as a result of its Leadership Panel and its non-profit, unbiased, rigorous approach in evaluating today’s marketplace technologies. “The award winners exemplify”, said Dr. Lou Shuman, President of The Pride Institute, and creator of the award and its process “a true differentiation from the rest of the technologies in their categories. We seek out those products and technologies that truly raise the bar. VALO is one among those to receive this prestigious award specifically for that reason”.

    The Pride Leadership Panel consists of the top technologists in the dental industry including Drs. Lou Shuman, John Flucke, Parag Kachalia, Paul Feuerstein, Marty Jablow, Larry Emmott and Titus Schleyer. The individual contribution of the panel members to the industry is immeasurable in their work as researchers, speakers, and editors. “I am honored”, said Suzanne Wilson, Brand Manager for VALO, “both to receive this recognition on behalf of Ultradent, and to be a member of the team that has been integral in introducing such an amazing innovation. I personally want to thank the panel at Pride for their acknowledgement.”

    VALO will be showcased at the Pride Institute “Best of Class” Technology Expo at the ADA annual session in San Francisco, California this October. For more details, please follow “Ultradent” on facebook or visit
