    SOUTH JORDAN, UT, July 3, 2018 – Thanks to the VALO® curing light’s time-tested and proven track record of durability, quality, and dependability Ultradent Products, Inc., is pleased to announce the extension of all current VALO curing light warranties to three years. This extension will add one year to all current two-year warranties on VALO curing lights, making all current warranties valid for a total of three years.

     

    “The VALO curing light brand has exhibited such a wonderful track record with our customers that we’ve decided to extend the warranty on every VALO curing light to three years. This includes the VALO® Corded, VALO® Cordless, VALO® Ortho and the VALO® Grand curing lights. The decision to extend the warranty of our award-winning curing lights was an easy one, as we stand by the quality and longevity of the VALO curing light. We hope this small gesture will stand as a token of our sincere appreciation to our loyal customers and give them added peace of mind in their investment,” says Mike Simmons, Ultradent’s equipment brand manager.

     

     About VALO Curing Lights

    Ultradent’s VALO curing light uses a custom, multiwavelength light-emitting diode (LED) to produce high intensity light at 385-515nm, capable of polymerizing all light-cured dental materials. This intensity can also penetrate porcelain and is capable of curing underlying resin cements similar to a quality halogen light. The VALO curing light’s optimally collimated beam delivers a complete, uniform cure to entire restoration. All VALO curing lights feature three curing modes—Standard Power, High Power, and Xtra Power, offering clinicians convenience, efficiency, and flexibility.

     

    Every VALO curing light starts as a solid bar of tempered, high-grade aerospace aluminum, which is then CNC precision milled at Ultradent’s facility in South Jordan, Utah. The VALO light’s unique, unibody construction ensures maximum durability and provides unsurpassed heat dissipation. The elegant, ergonomic, and streamlined designed enables the VALO curing light to easily reach all curing site without sacrificing patient comfort. The VALO Cordless, and VALO Grand lights all run on two lithium iron phosphate batteries that deliver the consistent power the VALO curing light requires. These batteries are also inexpensive, rechargeable, and widely available should they need to be replaced.

     

    The VALO Grand curing light features all the benefits of the multiple-award winning VALO Curing light, but with a larger head size and 50% bigger lens—measuring 12mm! The new VALO Grand curing light also comes with a handy back activation button for ease of use.
