  • Ultradent Introduces New VALO™ X Curing Light

    September 27, 2022 Salt Lake City, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials and equipment, launched the newest edition of its multi-award-winning VALO™ curing light—the completely redesigned VALO™ X broadband LED curing light. As Ultradent’s most innovative curing light yet, the VALO X curing light offers the ultimate in engineering and design when it comes to every aspect of the light—including durability, power, accessibility, and versatility.


    Thanks to its larger 12.5 mm lens and new powerful custom LED chip, the VALO X curing light offers a more complete cure than ever before. Its superior features allow clinicians to cure with confidence, and not have to question the capabilities of their light. This includes improved curing depth, beam collimation, and thermal management. The VALO X curing light comes equipped with two power modes (Standard Power and Xtra Power), two diagnostic light modes (black light and white light), as well as the ability to work corded or cordless.


    The light’s one-button activation also sports a user interface with an accelerometer, so users can cycle between the light’s power and diagnostic modes with just the wave of the wand, a light drum tap, or the push of a button. This helps reduce mid-procedure fumbling and the likelihood of dropping the light. The VALO X light also comes with five accessory lenses, which further enhance its capabilities. A simplified, low-profile design enables the light’s head to reach posterior restorations with ease. “We simplified the VALO X curing light even more by making it the only light that allows you to change modes without pushing buttons, thanks to its new accelerometer,” says Ultradent VP of Research and Development Neil Jessop. “In fact, it’s engineered so well that it won't change modes by accident, providing the experience and performance you expect from a VALO curing light.”


    Like Ultradent’s other award-winning VALO curing lights, the VALO X curing light is milled from a single bar of aerospace-grade aluminum—a material that improves thermal management, LED longevity, and provides unmatched durability.

  • Two Years Running: Ultradent Makes Fortune ‘Best Workplaces in Manufacturing and Production’ & Enters Top 5 in Nation

    September 7, 2022 Salt Lake City, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials, is honored to be recognized for the second year in a row as a ‘Top Large Workplace in Manufacturing and Production’ by Fortune Magazine; moving from number nine last year, to the nation’s top five in 2022. It is the only company in Utah, as well as the dental industry, to ever make the list.


    Fortune bases its rankings on a rigorous evaluation of the company’s culture, values, employee satisfaction, and extensive 3rd party employee surveys and feedback.


    Of making Fortune’s list for the second year in a row, Ultradent’s President and CEO, Dirk Jeffs, says, “Here at Ultradent, it’s truly our people that make us great, and I attribute receiving this honor to them. We couldn’t be such a diverse, wonderful place to work without the many talents of people from different teams coming together to execute our vision.”


    Of receiving the honor despite white water economic conditions, as well as the global pandemic, he continues, “I want to commend our people for their strength, resilience, and remarkable creativity that, despite difficult times, has made us stronger. I feel very proud of Ultradent’s commitment to inclusion and our core values, and I look forward to seeing that continue to drive our success and culture in the future.”


    Established in the basement of Founder and CEO Emeritus Dr. Dan Fischer in 1978, Ultradent has sought excellence in both its products and in what its founder calls “happiness in the workplace” since the beginning. Of this honor, Dr. Fischer says, “We owe this recognition to our peoples’ commitment to Ultradent’s core values: integrity, care, hard work, innovation, and quality.” Continuing, “Companies aren’t made of concrete, glass, and steel—they’re made of people—and they are more productive if they are happy. We extend a depth of gratitude to Fortune Magazine for recognizing our efforts in this regard and are excited to be a part of the list again.”
