    May 29, 2009 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. will be honored with the 2009 Charles A. Caine Award for Workplace Safety at a reception hosted by the Workers Compensation Fund. Nominated because of its outstanding safety practices, Ultradent is among 12 companies out of 24,000 in Utah to receive this distinction.

  • Ultradent Unveils VALO

    May 18, 2009 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. unveiled VALO, the new wave in LED curing lights at the California Dental Association (CDA) Scientific Session last week in Anaheim, CA. VALO is the LED curing light for unsurpassed accessibility, accuracy and efficiency in a sleek body to deliver the right power in the right place. 


    VALO is anything but your ordinary curing light. Its optimized power output, broad spectrum custom LEDs and precisely collimated beam provide consistent and uniform cures. By offering three curing options (standard power, high power and a new plasma mode), VALO has the ability to cure all types of restorations with the touch of a button. With a three-second time cycle and built-in two-second safety delay, VALO’s plasma mode has been said to rival plasma arc lights in its level of rapid cure. 

    “I have been using VALO for some time and I would not want to be without it”, said Dr. John Kanca. “No longer do you have to decide if you want a normal output, a high intensity output or the power of a PAC light. VALO has all of that in one light, and in a very light and compact unit. Its ability to produce the greatest amount of energy at distances up to 10 mm from the tooth is just amazing.” 

    VALO is engineered for both practitioner and patient well-being. It’s sleek, aerospace wand-style body is lightweight and exceptionally durable. The aluminum body has a sapphire like coating for a virtually scratch resistant surface. These features coupled with a low profile head resulted in a curing light that feels unlike any other. 

    VALO is the next wave in dental curing lights. For more information, please call 1-801-553-4243 or visit Ultradent online at www.ultradent.com. ​
