Ultradent Products, Inc. Proudly Introduces: Gemini™ 810 + 980 Soft Tissue Laser
November 30, 2015 South Jordan, UT
Ultradent Products Inc. proudly introduces the Gemini™ 810 + 980 Soft Tissue Laser—dentistry’s first dual-wavelength soft tissue diode laser with 20 watts of peak super-pulsed power and a stunning, fully transparent electroluminescent display. No matter the procedure, the innovative Gemini laser makes it faster, smoother, and more efficient.
Thanks to the Gemini’s 810 + 980 dual wave technology, the laser combines the optimal melanin absorption of the 810nm wavelength with the optimal water absorption of the 980nm wavelength, making this laser the first and only laser of its kind. Additionally, the 20 watts of peak super-pulsed power Gemini provides allows for faster, smoother cutting. Its sleek, innovative, stunning transparent electroluminescent display comes with 19 preset procedures to enhance ease of use. The tip of the handpiece illuminates, providing better visibility at the surgical site. Gemini also comes with a wireless foot pedal, and battery operation allows for convenient movement from operatory to operatory. The handpiece is autoclavable, allowing for simple sterilization between procedures.

Ultradent Raises 341,036 lbs. of Food for Utah Food Bank
November 24, 2015 South Jordan, UT
Ultradent Products, Inc. held its annual food drive this year, promoted with an “Ironman” theme, as the company aimed to raise as much food and money for the Utah Food Bank as possible within a three-day intensive push. Within those three days, Ultradent was able to raise $85,263, which translates to 341,036 lbs. of food that will help feed needy people and hungry families this holiday season and throughout the year. This annual food drive has become a cherished and much looked-forward to tradition for Ultradent employees and their families, who have each year, stretched to help give back to those around them less fortunate. Throughout its history with the Utah Food Bank, Ultradent has helped raise 1.2 million pounds of food since the tradition began in 2011, though often times splitting their donations between the Utah Food Bank and victims of world tragedy, such as those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in 2013.
Donations for Ultradent’s 2015 food drive were raised through numerous opportunity drawings, bake/pop-up boutique sales, several “Food Truck Friday” events, and a charitable golf tournament, all organized by company employees. Ultradent presented a check for $85,263 to the CEO of the Utah Food Bank on Thursday, November 19, 2015.
Dr. Fischer, Ultradent’s president and CEO, attributes his enthusiasm for the food drive to lessons he learned as a young boy. He says, “My grandfather taught me as a young boy that it is only with an open hand that one has the ability to receive.”
