  • Ultradent’s Continuous Training Program Travels to Cambodia

    August 8, 2011 Siem Reap, Cambodia

    Last month, Ultradent Products, Inc. welcomed participants from all over Asia-Pacific to Cambodia to join in their successful “continuous training” certification program. Cambodia, with its present charms and extraordinary history, has had one of the best economic records in Asia for the last ten years. Cambodia’s story is not too unlike that of Ultradent’s which is full of accomplishments that rank against all odds. 


    The continuous training program was designed to build on the relationships and technical expertise of our partners to help them become more successful. Even though the program is only in its second year, Ultradent has seen a growing demand for its hands-on program which is “content rich and magical” in the words of trainers Karen Phillips and Steve Gerber. Karen and Steve, who together possess over 50 years dental experience, led the training with the motto “involve me and I will understand”. In this way, the reward of learning can be felt on both sides. Course participants leave with a true improvement in their clinical knowledge and a more confidant smile. 

    Even though the program provides an abundant amount of information, there is still fun to be had in the process. The Kool and the Gang song, “Celebration”, was the theme in introducing the much anticipated new VALO Cordless. And, with the words of Diana Ross, the participants declared “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” to illustrate their confidence upon completing the training. All participants received their certification after successfully completing the program and passing their exam. ​

  • Ultradent Launches VALO Cordless

    July 6, 2011 South Jordan, UT

    Today, Ultradent announced the launch of VALO Cordless, another expertly engineered development in LED curing light technology. VALO Cordless maintains the powerfully efficient broadband technology offered by the multiple award winning VALO, and adds a battery-operated, cordless wand for mobility. 


    VALO Cordless features custom, multi-wavelength Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) to produce high intensity light at 395-480 nm--capable of polymerizing all light-cured dental materials. This intensity can penetrate porcelain and is capable of curing underlying resin cements similar to a quality halogen light. VALO Cordless comes with VALO rechargeable batteries and a battery charger suitable for power outlets from 100 to 240 volts. The standard lithium iron phosphate rechargeable batteries are safe, inexpensive, and optimized for power and longevity. 

    The new handpiece is designed to rest in a standard dental unit bracket, or can be custom mounted using the bracket included in the kit. It offers consistent curing intensity and output in a durable, aerospace aluminum body with a Teflon coating and a sleek, ergonomic design. 

    For more information, please contact Ultradent’s customer service at 1-800-552-5212 or visit us at www.valo-led.com. ​

  • Ultradent Introduces Fluoride Varnish with Mess-Free Delivery and its new SoftEZ™ tip

    July 1, 2011 South Jordan, UT

    ​Ultradent just released Flor-Opal Varnish White, a fluoride varnish with an innovative syringe and tip delivery system for fast, simple and mess-free application. The new system comes complete with Ultradent’s SoftEZ™ tip for a paintbrush-like application that applies an even coat of varnish from start to finish.

    Flor-Opal Varnish White features a unique syringe-to-syringe mixing system ensuring a consistent, even dose of fluoride is applied to each tooth. Individual syringes are packaged with a Luer Lock cap that is replaced with an empty syringe prior to application. Unlike traditional fluoride varnishes that use a “well” and brush system, the mixing process between syringes ensures a consistent application of fluoride with less mess and product waste.

    Flor-Opal Varnish White is delivered with Ultradent’s new SoftEZ tip, a tip with a unibody design that avoids fiber shedding and tip clogging. The bristles are integrated within the body of the tip providing a platform for an even coat of varnish. The syringe is also flexible, facilitating reach to difficult-to-access areas.

    The new Flor-Opal Varnish White is available in 40 packs of Bubblegum and Mint flavors. For more information, please contact Ultradent’s customer service at 1-800-552-5212.​
