  • Ultradent Products Inc. Celebrates 40th Anniversary

    February 1, 2018 South Jordan, UT

    SOUTH JORDAN, UT, February 1, 2018 – This year, Ultradent Products, Inc., a family-owned, international dental supply and manufacturing company, celebrates 40 years in the dental industry. Ultradent began as a family-run, grassroots small business that, throughout four decades, has become a worldwide leader in its field—known for its innovative dental products, rock-solid core values, and family-friendly, people-centered business culture.

     

    Of this milestone, Dr. Dan Fischer, founder and CEO of Ultradent Products, says, “Looking back on the last 40 years, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for the sacrifice and hard work put in by so many people—whether it be my own family, our fabulous Ultradent employees, or the leaders in dentistry who championed us from the beginning and along the way in this wonderful endeavor. The time has truly flown by, and it’s amazing to look back on the progress we’ve made since our humble beginnings at the kitchen table of my home.” He adds, “I often say that companies are not made of concrete, glass, and steel. They’re made of people, and people serving people is what business is all about. I believe that is one of the key ingredients to Ultradent’s success over the last 40 years.”

     

    Ultradent began 40 years ago with a simple idea by Dr. Fischer, then a young dentist who had recently graduated from Loma Linda University. He wanted to create a product that would act as a solution to a common problem dentists everywhere face—achieving predictable, rapid, and profound hemostasis in the mouth. He knew that if he could come up with a product that met that criteria, he would not only save dentists time and money by allowing them to work more efficiently, but that it would also allow dentists to produce higher quality, more accurate impressions.

     

    Dr. Fischer began experimenting with different chemistries after-hours at his small dental practice in Salt Lake City, and by 1978, he had invented and patented Ultradent’s first product, Astringedent® hemostatic, a groundbreaking feat in tissue management. That same year, he founded Ultradent Products, Inc., as a vehicle to market and sell his invention.

     

    Astringedent hemostatic’s wild success set the pace for a succession of products that today includes a wide range of innovative dental materials and equipment. In fact, since 1978, Ultradent Products has gone from one offering, Astringedent hemostatic, to offering over 1,600 dental products worldwide.

     

    As business grew rapidly, Ultradent also expanded from its first headquarters, a 40-foot x 60-foot metal hay barn on Dr. Fischer’s property, to its South Jordan headquarters, which encompasses over 460,000 square feet. This doesn’t include its numerous offices and subsidiaries throughout the world in Asia, Australia, Europe, and South America.

     

    Ultradent is also a proud USA-manufacturer. The company researches, designs, manufactures, packages, and ships 95% of what it sells in its South Jordan facility. It also exports 70% of its products beyond U.S. borders to over 100 countries throughout the world. Of this practice, Dr. Fischer says, “We believe in staying in touch with our products. The more one outsources, the more one delegates shipping, or production, or R&D to other parts of the world, the more one loses touch with what has made them who they are.”

     

    Ultradent’s hallmark products include its expanded line of tissue management products, which still includes Astringedent hemostatic, and its world renowned, industry-leading line of tooth whitening products, Opalescence® Whitening Systems. Ultradent’s product family also includes the multiple-award winning VALO® and VALO® Grand curing lights, Ultra-Etch® etchant, and its recently introduced dual-wave soft tissue diode Gemini® laser.

     

    Beyond the dental community, Ultradent supports and donates products to humanitarian efforts both locally, nationally, and internationally, including the Crown Council and Sealants for Smiles. Ultradent also founded and sponsors its own 501c3 non-profit organization, the Diversity Foundation, a progressive outreach program committed to preventing hate crimes and intolerance. The foundation is currently helping support over 50 students in their efforts to pursue higher education at the college and graduate level.

  • Ultradent has Multiple Products Honored with 2017 Cellerant Best of Class Technology Awards

    August 17, 2017 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc., is pleased to announce that the Gemini® 810 + 980 diode laser, and the VALO® curing light family—which includes VALO Corded, VALO Cordless, and the largest LED curing light available on the market, VALO® Grand—have been selected as 2017 recipients of the Cellerant “Best of Class” Technology Award. Now in its ninth year, the Cellerant “Best of Class” Technology Award recognizes manufacturers and service providers for their innovations and is one of the most prestigious dental industry honors. “Being selected as a ‘Best of Class’ winner acknowledges companies that create the innovative dental technologies that will help shape the future of our profession,” said Dr. Lou Shuman, Best of Class Founder and Cellerant CEO.


    This year will mark the fifth time that Ultradent’s VALO Curing Light family has been awarded the “Best of Class” Technology award. It is the first time that the Gemini 810 + 980 diode laser has been recognized for the honor. Of the distinctions, Mike Simmons, Ultradent’s Global Brand Manager of Equipment, says, “Ultradent is truly honored to receive this award for both the VALO family of curing lights and our newly launched Gemini diode laser. We strive to bring value to the dentist through innovative products, and the VALO curing lights and Gemini laser portray this goal perfectly. We are very proud of our equipment and are humbled by the praise and recognition from the Cellerant Consulting Group.”


    The VALO curing light’s multiwavelength light-emitting diode (LED) and optimally collimated beam makes it capable of polymerizing all dental materials. The low-profile design of the light’s wand-style body and the large footprint of the curing head provide unprecedented access to the oral cavity. Each VALO light is precision milled from a solid bar of aircraft aluminum, ensuring unsurpassed durability. VALO Cordless is also available in the colors Graphite, Gold, Fuschia, and purple. The VALO Grand curing light features a 50% larger lens and an additional curing light on the underside of the wand.


    “Best of Class” honorees are chosen by a panel comprised of leading voices in dental technology, who come together each year to discuss, debate, and decide what products merit recognition. “We research the best available technologies for an entire year leading up to the announcement of award winners,” said Dr. Marty Jablow of Cellerant. “To be selected as ‘Best of Class’ after all of that scrutiny and deliberation means that our panel is confident in recommending winning technologies to our peers.”


    In addition to Dr. Shuman, the 2017 “Best of Class” panel consisted of Dr. John Flucke, Technology Editor for Dental Products Report; Paul Feuerstein, DMD, Technology Editor for Dentistry Today; Marty Jablow, DMD, known as America’s Technology Coach; and Parag Kachalia, DDS, Vice-Chair of Preclinical Education, Research and Technology, University of Pacific School of Dentistry. “Ultradent is extremely honored to be among those recognized by this extremely distinguished panel of doctors, leaders, and innovators. There is no higher recognition than to be lauded by your peers, and for that, we are humbled and grateful,” said Dr. Dan Fischer, founder and CEO of Ultradent Products.

  • Introducing UniCore® Accessory Posts Part of the UniCore® Post and Drill System

    June 16, 2017 South Jordan, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc., proudly introduces UniCore® Accessory Posts, part of the UniCore® Post and Drill System. Designed for the general dentist and endodontist, UniCore Accessory Posts work to fill voids in the root canal, improving in overall strength of the post and core unit. UniCore Accessory Posts were created to be placed in the root canal alongside a master post, such as the UniCore Post. Adding accessory posts allows for much better adaptation in the case of flared and oval canals, eliminating the need for an additional drilling procedure.


    UniCore Accessory Posts feature a tapered shaft for dentin conservation and enhanced adaptation in flared canals. This minimizes gap formation as well as polymerization shrinkage. UniCore Accessory Posts are stronger than composite resins, providing reinforcement of the restoration inside and outside. They feature high translucency for optimal aesthetics and light conductivity, and are also radiopaque, making them easy to see in radiographs.

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. Proudly Introduces Mosaic™ Universal Composite

    February 21, 2017 South Jordan, Utah

    Ultradent Products Inc. proudly introduces Mosaic universal composite, which balances beauty and performance for lasting, lifelike restorations. Mosaic composite can be used for all restorative purposes: basic or complex. Its well-balanced nanohybrid formula produces restorations of the highest quality. Combining the strength properties required for posterior use with the esthetic characteristics desired for anterior use, Mosaic universal composite ensures superior results both visually and functionally.


    Mosaic universal composite’s smooth, pliable consistency allows for total control during manipulation. Once the material is shaped, it won’t flow or slump out of place. Available in 20 intuitive dental and enamel shades, it provides predictable shade matching using single, double, or multiple-layer techniques, as it was designed to emulate the same levels of translucency and opacity seen in natural dentition. Dentin and enamel shades also mimic the same fluorescence that occurs in natural dentin and enamel. The proprietary dispersion of nanofillers in Mosaic composite allows for a high polish and long-term gloss retention, allowing the restorations to maintain a long-term luster. Low volume shrinkage and low shrinkage stress reduce the potential for strain on the restoration during polymerization, while high compressive and flexural strength ensure that the restoration can withstand repetitive chewing and biting forces.


    Mosaic universal composite comes in unique, four-gram syringes, featuring an innovative design with a smooth, contoured handle and barrel to allow for easy cleaning while still being easy to grip and identify. It is also available in convenient .2-gram unit-dose singles.

    Since 2009, Ultradent has been involved in the University of Montpellier’s dental program, helping provide practical training to students in tooth whitening, adhesions, veneers, and even management and leadership through product support, training, and lecturing. Additionally, Ultradent supported the creation of a post-graduate diploma by Dr. Bruno Pelessier in esthetic and restorative dentistry, which has become the most widely recognized and reputable professional diploma for working dentists in France. Ultradent has also helped the university develop a master class on posterior restorations that is not only available at the University of Montpellier’s main campus in France, but is also at outposts on the islands of Réunion, Guadeloupe, and Martinique.

    Upon receiving the Medal of Honor, Dr. Dan Fischer said, “Receiving this award was very humbling and a sweet gesture by our colleagues at the University of Montpellier, including Dr. Bruno Pelessier.

  • Ultradent Introduces New Enamelast® Fluoride Varnish Flavors

    July 7, 2016 South Jordan, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. is excited to introduce three new delicious flavor offerings to its Enamelast fluoride varnish line: Cool Mint, Bubble Gum, and Orange Cream. The fluoride varnish is also available in the original Walterberry flavor.


    Ultradent created Enamelast fluoride varnish in response to overwhelming demand for an effective varnish that doesn’t leave an unsightly, uncomfortable, or gritty residue. Enamelast varnish finally allows patients to leave the dental office with teeth that feel clean and smooth. In addition to its silky texture, Enamelast varnish appears nearly invisible against the teeth, eliminating the embarrassment that many patients feel after other varnish treatments.


    For a fluoride varnish to provide the best results, it must adhere to the teeth for the entire recommended time. Enamelast varnish features a patented adhesion-promoting agent that enhances retention, making it easier for patients to receive its full benefits. Enamelast varnish’s natural feel also makes it more comfortable to wear for a longer amount of time, allowing for maximum fluoride uptake.


    Enamelast fluoride varnish comes in two convenient delivery options: unit-dose blister packs or Ultradent’s signature syringe and tip application. The Enamelast varnish unit-dose blister packs provide an ideal delivery option for the clinician who prefers the convenience of a one-time use application, or for dental clinics in hospital settings that require the use of unit-dose treatments in which all materials are packaged together. Each blister pack includes a prefilled well and applicator brush, allowing the clinician to dip the brush in the well and paint the varnish on the teeth. Conversely, the syringe delivery facilitates the ability to express Enamelast varnish through Ultradent’s SoftEZ® tip directly onto the teeth for fast application. The clinician can also choose to express the varnish onto the back of their glove before painting onto the teeth. As opposed to the unit-dose blister packs, each syringe of Enamelast varnish provides enough varnish for three to four patients.

  • Ultradent Pledges Up to $30,000 to Victims of Pulse Nightclub Massacre in Orlando, Florida

    June 14, 2016 South Jordan, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc., has announced they will donate 5% of the company’s U.S. sales on Thursday, June 16 and Friday, June 17, up to $30,000, to the Equality Florida’s Pulse Victims Fund following the tragic massacre this past Sunday morning in Orlando.

    Of the violent attack—which claimed the lives of 49 people and injured 53 others before law enforcement fatally shot the attacker—Dr. Fischer, founder and CEO of Ultradent said, “Once again, we are reminded that we are a country at war. But this terrorist upped the ante by targeting a group of our fellow Americans who bring no oppression to others. They are our sons and daughters who are simply singled out, oppressed, even persecuted simply because of who they are. This is so wrong! This is NOT what America is about! We must band together as Americans and do everything in our power to counter such craziness, be it here at home, and/or by extremists anywhere who preach and enact hate against all others.”

    He went on to say, “The victims are our sons, daughters, and family members at all levels. Our hearts and prayers are with them.”

    Last, Dr. Fischer, in his statement called for appropriate action to be taken by our nation’s top government officials, quoting Albert Einstein in saying “Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”

    He concluded by calling back to Ultradent’s Core Values, encouraging all people to “have courage and do the right thing!”

    Showing one of Ultradent’s Core Values, Care, the company frequently donates to the Utah Food Bank, to various national and international dental humanitarian missions, and has made significant donations to national and international disaster and crisis victims, including Typhoon Haiyan, Hurricane Sandy, the Haiti Earthquake, flooding in Japan, and the recent earthquake in Ecuador.

  • Ultradent Receives 2016 Earth Day Award For Mine Reclamation Project

    April 27, 2016 South Jordan, Utah

    The Utah Board of Oil, Gas, and Mining honored Ultradent Products Inc. with its 2016 Earth Day Award for the company’s innovative reclamation of a mine located in Tooele County, Utah. Every year, the board presents the award to Utah companies, organizations, and individuals for going beyond what is required by regulation to protect the environment while developing Utah’s natural resources.



    For more than two decades, Ultradent responsibly used the site to resource and refine banded fluorite and barite found within the mine for use in its many dental products. Last August, Ultradent executives made the decision to undergo reclamation of the mine in order to return it to a post-mining land use, making it a possible and safe habitat for wildlife in the future. The project involved demolition and closing the mine, regrading, and revegetating the land.



    Larry Garahana, a geologist for the Bureau of Land Management said, “Projects like this are so important because we don’t want to leave old mining disturbances on the ground for safety reasons, and it’s important to bring the landscape back to a suitable habitat and ground for wildlife and woodlands.” He continues, “Ultradent, under the direction of Peter Allred and Erwin Fischer, did a phenomenal job on this project. They went above and beyond.”



    Peter Allred, Ultradent’s director of formulation technology says, “We’re a proud Utah company—all of our marketing materials and product packaging feature our iconic Utah landscapes and landmarks, and with this project, we felt a deep responsibility to clean up the site and return the land to its natural state as good corporate citizens.”



    Erwin Fischer, Ultradent’s senior vice-president says, “This is something that our team can be very proud of for the effort that they put into it. They gave it their all and spend a lot of time and in the end, I think they really enjoyed it and knocked it out of the park.”



    “Earth Day Awards recognize reclamation projects and innovations in environmental technology that surpass what is required by regulation,” stated Utah Board of Oil, Gas, and Mining Chairman Ruland Gill Jr. “It is an opportunity for companies to demonstrate technical expertise and pride in their industry, and concern not only for the economics of their industry, but also for our environment.”



    Other companies that received the 2016 Earth Day Award include Compass Minerals Ogden, Inc., Conoco Phillips, North American Mine Services, Inc., Canyon Fuel Company, LLC, and Questar Pipeline Company for their projects.

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. Proudly Introduces MTA Flow ™ Repair Cement

    March 7, 2016 South Jordan, UT

    ​Ultradent Products Inc. proudly introduces MTA Flow™ (Mineral Trioxide Aggregate), a repair cement made especially for pulpotomies, pulp capping, root-end filling, apexification, perforation repair, and root resorption.

    MTA Flow is a bioactive powder and liquid/gel system consisting of an extremely fine, radiopaque, inorganic powder of tricalcium and dicalcium silicate which sets with a water-based gel. When set, the repair cement forms a layer of hydroxyapatite, which induces a healing reaction. The powder/gel combination also gives the clinician a variety of mixing options needed for an effective, non-gritty, easy-to-deliver MTA.

    MTA Flow’s small particle size (less than 10 microns) allows for smooth and easy dispensation, and its proprietary gel formulation makes the product more washout-resistant than other MTAs mixed with water. MTA Flow’s mixing ratio is adaptable to every procedure, allowing the clinician the ability to achieve any desired consistency, from thin, to thick, to putty. Its quick setting time also makes it possible to rinse or air-dry without washing away the MTA within five minutes of application. MTA Flow is the only MTA that can be delivered in thin consistency through a 29 ga Navitip®tip for apexification and apical plug applications.

    To learn more about MTA Flow, please call 800.552.5512, or visit ultradent.com.

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. Proudly Introduces the Jiffy® Universal Ceramic Finishing System

    February 29, 2016 South Jordan, Utah

    ​Ultradent Products Inc. proudly introduces the Jiffy® Universal Ceramic Finishing System—the only universal finishing system for high-strength ceramics. Ultradent’s new Jiffy Universal Ceramic Finishing System is a finishing solution in which all adjustors and polishers work interchangeably on porcelain, lithium disilicate, and zirconia. Each convenient kit (extra-oral or intra-oral) includes everything the dentist needs, eliminating the need to purchase unnecessary or multiple components and allowing the clinician to create a truly smooth, beautiful, high-gloss finish of the highest quality on all ceramic restorations. Jiffy Universal allows for universal application, eliminating the need for multiple grinders and polishers, saving the clinician time and money.


    Because of the extreme hardness of newer ceramic materials, effectively adjusting and polishing ceramic restorations can be a major challenge. If a restoration is not adjusted and polished correctly, it can result in microfractures and abrasion of the softer natural dentition of adjacent teeth. The Jiffy Universal system features Ultradent’s specially formulated diamond grit, providing optimal smoothness and outstanding polishing results. The multi-grit diamond particles also allow for effective adjustment of ceramics for a truly high-gloss finish, and the system’s maximum diamond retention ensures a long service life. Additionally, the system’s autoclavable aluminum block further extends the life of the system.


    Only Jiffy Universal Kits offer a universal solution with an optimal number of components so clinicians can efficiently adjust and polish any ceramic material to achieve a truly smooth surface with the highest quality, most natural-looking finish possible. To learn more about the Jiffy Universal Ceramic Finishing System, please call 800.552.5512, or visit ultradent.com.

  • 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.”

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. Proudly Introduces Endo-Eze® EVOS™ Endodontic Motor, Endo-Eze® EVOS™ Contra-Angle, and Endo-Eze® Genius™ Files

    September 22, 2015 South Jordan, UT

    ​Ultradent Products Inc. proudly introduces the Endo-Eze EVOS endodontic motor, the Endo-Eze EVOS 8:1 contra-angle, and the Endo-Eze Genius reciprocation and rotary files.   


    Clinicians no longer have to choose between the safety of reciprocation and the efficiency of rotary, thanks to the Endo-Eze EVOS (Endodontic Variable Operating System) motor, which allows for easy movement between the two modes. The EVOS motor is an electric, motor-driven handpiece intended for root canal preparation procedures in the endodontic field. The device consists of a control unit, featuring an LCD screen with a selection of settings. The unit includes a foot pedal, allowing the clinicians to selectively activate/deactivate the motor at will. Pre-programmed for the Genius files, the EVOS motor helps minimize the risk of file separation (in reciprocation mode) while shaping and removing debris efficiently (in rotation mode) — seamlessly meeting the need for safety and efficiency.

    The Endo-Eze EVOS contra-angle is an 8:1 reduction, stainless steel contra-angle intended for use during endodontic treatment. The EVOS contra-angle can rotate in both rotary and reciprocation mode, depending on the motor settings. The EVOS contra-angle can be used with the EVOS motor and Genius files, but is also compatible with other endodontic systems on the market.

    Last, the Endo-Eze Genius files are designed for use in endodontic treatment for shaping and cleaning the root canal system. The working part of each Genius file consists of nickel-titanium alloy, heat-treated to increase flexibility while retaining strength in order to provide superior instrumentation. The Endo-Eze Genius files were designed specifically for use with the EVOS motor and can be used in both reciprocation and rotary mode.

    To learn more about, or to purchase the Endo-Eze EVOS endodontic motor, the EVOS contra-angle, or the Genius files, please call 800.552.5512, or visit ultradent.com.

  • Ultradent Announced as Global Distributor of The Uveneer™ Direct Composite Veneer Template System

    August 19, 2015 South Jordan, Utah

    ​Ultradent Products Inc., is pleased to announce global distribution* of Uveneer™, the only direct composite veneer template system available in the dental market today.

    For dentists frustrated with unpredictable results from direct composite veneers, the Uveneer direct composite veneer template system is the only user-friendly tool on the market that effectively minimizes the need for carving and polishing so one can quickly produce beautiful anterior restorations. The Uveneer system is a unique, minimally invasive template system that creates beautiful direct composite veneers with predictable shape and symmetry—all in one visit. Each template mimics natural dentition and is designed to create high-quality, natural-looking anterior restorations. The Uveneer system uses innovative technologies that help the dentist achieve a refined, anatomically correct, high-gloss restoration in a fraction of the time than if done freehand. Results are both reproducible and predictable. It can also be used for cosmetic mock-ups and shade selection as well as temporaries during porcelain veneer creation.

    The Uveneer direct composite veneer template system works with any preferred composite, and facilitates application on individual or multiple teeth. Each template allows light to pass through to the composite for effective curing, while eliminating the oxygen inhibition layer, resulting in a hard, glossy surface. It also releases easily from cured composite resin. Each Uveneer template is autoclavable and reusable, making it a cost-effective choice. Each individual template is numbered to correspond with tooth number, tooth size, and upper and lower arch, ensuring ease of use.

    Australian-based dentist Dr. Sigal Jacobson created the Uveneer direct composite template kit when she found that traditional freehand direct composite veneers were artistically challenging, unpredictable, and not always cost-effective. Passionate about conservative cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Jacobson knew there was a better way to create long-lasting, esthetic composite veneers. She spent years working with engineers to create the perfect design, resulting in the Uveneer direct composite veneer template system.

    Ultradent is the global distributor* of the Uveneer direct composite veneer template system. To learn more about, or purchase the Uveneer system, call 800.552.5512 or visit ultradent.com.

  • VALO® Awarded the Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award For 4th Consecutive Year

    June 22, 2015 South Jordan, Utah

    ​Now in its seventh year, the Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award continues unparalleled in its integrity and approach to recognizing excellence in dental innovation. In 2015, the VALO LED curing light, from Ultradent Products, Inc., is one of those lauded as “Best of Class.”

    “To be honored as ‘Best of Class’ is a sign that a product has revolutionized, simplified, or advanced its category in a distinctive way,” said Dr. Lou Shuman, "Best of Class" founder. “The manufacturers represented here are driving the conversation for how dental practices will operate today and in the future. The foundation for our success in bringing attention to these products has always been our formula: technology leadership in dentistry, unbiased, and not for profit.”

    “Best of Class” honorees are chosen by a panel comprised of leading voices in dental technology, who come together each year to discuss, debate, and decide what products merit recognition. All technology categories are considered, but if there is no clear differentiator that sets a product apart in its category, then no winner is selected. Panelists who receive compensation from dental companies are prevented from voting in that company’s category. Over the years, the panel has developed a rapport that makes space for important conversations about the value of different innovations and how evolving categories become more or less valuable to the general dentist. The spirited debate that follows results in a variety of products—obscure and well-known, basic and aspirational—being honored.

    “Technology decisions can be expensive and confusing for many doctors. Our job as ‘Best of Class’ panelists is to eat, sleep, live, breathe, and use technology in our general practices in real, everyday dentistry. We also have a chance to show and discuss these products with dental students and colleagues,” said Dr. John Flucke, writer, speaker, and Technology Editor for Dental Products Report. “This allows us to provide recommendations that a doctor and staff can rely on to make informed decisions regarding their technology purchases.”

    The panel consists of five dentists with significant knowledge of and experience in dental technology, including: Dr. Shuman; Dr. Flucke; Paul Feuerstein, DMD, writer, speaker and Technology Editor for Dentistry Today; Marty Jablow, DMD, technology writer and consultant for Dr. Bicuspid; and Parag Kachalia, DDS, Vice-Chair of Preclinical Education, Research and Technology, University of Pacific School of Dentistry.
    Mike Simmons, Ultradent equipment brand manager says, “Ultradent is incredibly pleased and honored to receive this distinguished award for the 4th year in a row by such an esteemed and respected panel. Simply put, VALO delivers. It delivers a broadspectrum light that cures both camphorquinone and specialized proprietary photoinitiators. It delivers a uniformly collimated beam to cure a range of surfaces and working differences. It delivers accessibility, which translates to a more comfortable procedure for the patient. And most importantly, VALO delivers real value to the clinician—which is why it has been ranked #1 for four years in a row.”
    The Pride Institute “Best of Class” Technology awards were launched in 2009 as a new concept to provide an unbiased, non-profit assessment of available technologies in the dental space. Through print and digital media coverage, the “Best of Class” message reaches the community of 150,000 dentists through multiple touch points—in print and online—educating them about the products. Honoree participation in the “Tech Expo” at the American Dental Association’s Annual Meeting offers face-to-face interaction with the companies as well as technology-centered education provided by members of the panel and the esteemed consultants of Pride Institute. Courses at last year’s 2014 meeting sold out. This year’s event will be held November 5–10 in Washington, DC.

The nominees were then voted on by thousands of practicing dentists across the nation to select one winner: Ultradent Products, Inc.


    Of receiving the honor, Dr. Dan Fischer, President and CEO of Ultradent Products, Inc. said, “We’re so honored to have received this recognition. Additionally, it must be said that the true honor for this award goes to the men and women at Ultradent who work tirelessly every day to uphold the values upon which Ultradent hangs its hat: Integrity, Care, Quality, Innovation, and lastly, Hard work. They embody these values in the way they contribute to our vision every day, regardless of their personal job description or the continent on which they serve.

Indeed, we are truly fortunate humans. Onward and upward!”


    The Golden Hands Award of Xcellence has the distinction of being the most elaborate award in Dentistry. Conceptualized by Amir H. Motamed, DDS, the sculpture was designed and made by commissioned artist and master craftsman, Donjo. The sculpture is made of casted bronze over an Italian m​arble base.

  • Triodent Introduces V3 SuperCurve Kit

    March 23, 2015 South Jordan, Utah

    ​Triodent and Ultradent Products, Inc. are pleased to announce the availability of the V3 SuperCurve kit, combining all of the benefits of Triodent’s best in class V3 Ring and System with the SuperCurve non-stick matrix—the ultimate anatomical, contoured, sectional matrix for seamless, predictable Class II restorations. The kit contains one V3 Universal Ring, one V3 Narrow Ring, 125 SuperCurve Matrices in sizes 3.5mm, 4.5mm, 5.5mm, 6.5mm, 7.5mm (20 each), 75 Wave-Wedges (25 Small, 25 Medium, and 25 Large), one pair of Forceps, and two pairs of Pin Tweezers.

    The Triodent V3 Ring and System produces tight contacts and a superb seal to the matrix, requiring minimal finishing. The V3 Ring has the widest indications for use of any sectional matrix ring, producing high-quality, predictable Class II composite restorations, every time. The nickel-titanium (NiTi) V3 Ring features exceptional strength for stability, and exerts optimal separation force on the teeth to produce consistently tight contacts. The V-shaped tines eliminate competition with the wedge in the embrasure, allowing the tines to grip both teeth equally, preventing the ring from collapsing into wide cavities.

    The addition of the SuperCurve Matrix brings the ultimate anatomical sectional matrix, contoured for greater stability and coated with a non-stick surface for easy removal, to the V3 kit. With the new Triodent V3 SuperCurve kit, clinicians will immediately see the difference in anatomy, finishing time, and ease of use with each item of the kit for superior Class II restorations.

  • Ultradent Proudly Presents Ultrawave™ and the Ultrawave™ XS Piezo Ultrasonic Units

    September 29, 2014 South Jordan, Utah

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc. proudly presents Ultrawave and Ultrawave XS—a new line of piezo ultrasonic devices for the clinician seeking a power scaler that is gentle to the tooth surface while also powerful enough to remove the toughest calculus. The Ultrawave line of piezoelectric devices allows for a variety of uses—from the workhorse of your hygiene operatory to restorative, perio, or endodontic treatments.  Thanks to intuitive Reflex™ technology, both Ultrawave and Ultrawave XS offer optimized performance, reduced chair time, and more comfort for patients.

    After years of refinement in the developmental process, Ultrawave and Ultrawave XS offer reliability and efficiency for successful treatments every time. Their ultrasonic piezoelectric linear motion moves back and forth, in contrast to the ellipse of magnetostrictive competitive devices, providing more complete scaling with less effort. The linear motion provides greater consistency and faster performance while treating the tooth more gently.

    Ultrawave and Ultrawave XS’s patented Reflex technology features an auto-tuning system, a push-pull system, and a feedback effect. The benefits of this include automatic real-time frequency adjustment (28 kHz–36 kHz) and a controlled amplitude of the tip vibration for smooth operation and patient comfort. Instantaneous adaption and maintenance of power prevents the tip from getting “bogged down” when applied to a dense or heavier load. Both units come with a lightweight handpiece that doesn’t heat up or vibrate, feature a generous 6.5’ cord, and have a compact design for increased mobility and convenience. The Ultrawave XS features an LED handpiece and self-contained irrigation tank with 300ml capacity.
    Additionally, Ultrawave and Ultrawave XS offer a convenient Color-Coding System, coordinating the power selection with the different tips. The internal transformer adapts based on the tip and power selection. Both units are compatible with 70+ “S” style tips and are autoclavable at 134°C with a removable nose cone.

    To learn more or purchase Ultradent’s new Ultrawave and Ultrawave XS piezo ultrasonic units and handpieces, please call 800.552.5512, or visit ultradent.com.

  • VALO Awarded the Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award for Third Consecutive Year

    August 31, 2014 South Jordan, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc., a global manufacturer and distributor of dental materials and equipment, received The Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award for VALO, Ultradent’s curing light, for the third consecutive year. The award is the highest honor for innovation in dental curing lights. Each product honored as “Best of Class” features unique characteristics that differentiate it from the competition in a compelling way and, more importantly, creates value for the general dentist.

    “Thank you to the Pride Institute, for recognizing VALO as the ‘Best in Class’ curing light for the 3rd year in a row! We are over the moon with excitement and gratitude about receiving this award by such an esteemed panel of clinicians,” said Suzanne Wilson, Senior Brand Marketing Manager.  “VALO continues to impress clinicians with its durability, power and ability to deliver the required energy like no other curing light on the market.  VALO is the only curing light with a truly blended and uniform beam across multiple wavelengths from 395-480nm.  VALO has an unmatched beam profile showing consistent and uniform energy being delivered, even from a distance.  This matters to clinicians because it illustrates the actual energy being delivered to the restoration versus something one dimensional, like the irradiance output from a radiometer.”

    Of VALO’s third consecutive award, Dr. Lou Shuman, president of The Pride Institute and founder of the “Best of Class” Awards initiative stated that, “Our advisory panel determined after a year of research and testing that VALO is still the most advanced curing light on the market, which is why VALO was selected as the winner of The Pride Institute’s ‘Best of Class’ Technology Award for the third year in a row. This is nearly unprecedented, based on how rigorous the selection process is —which speaks to the progressive nature of VALO’s technology.”

    The panel that selects the “Best of Class” winners consists of five dentists with significant knowledge of and experience in dental technology, including Dr. Shuman; John Flucke, DDS, writer, speaker and Chief Dental Editor for Dental Products Report; Paul Feuerstein, DMD, writer, speaker and Technology Editor for Dentistry Today ; Marty Jablow, DMD, technology writer and consultant for Dr. BiCuspid; and Parag Kachalia, DDS, Vice-Chair of Preclinical Education, Research and Technology, University of Pacific School of Dentistry.

    VALO will be showcased at the “Tech Expo” Booth 4139 at the American Dental Association’s Annual Meeting from Oct. 9 to Oct. 14 in San Antonio, Texas.

  • Introducing Endo-Eze® FIND™ Apex Locator

    August 6, 2014 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc. is proud to introduce the Endo-Eze FIND apex locator. Endo-Eze FIND is an electronic device used for apex localization and working-length determination during root canal treatment. FIND offers unsurpassed accuracy with a convenient, easy-to-read, full-color graphic display; audio feedback; and fully automatic multifrequency measurements. Thanks to its compact design and small footprint, FIND easily fits on any counter or treatment tray.

    Clinical research shows that establishing the correct working length is critical for success in root canal therapy. When used in combination with radiographic measurements, an apex locator can significantly increase endodontic treatment success. One published in vivo study states: “Underestimation of the WL [Working Length] can lead to insufficient debridement of the root canal, whereas overestimation can result in damage to the periapical tissues, which will delay or prevent healing. . . . Furthermore, radiographs provide a two-dimensional image of a three-dimensional structure, which might affect the interpretation.”1 Another published study found that “working length ending radiographically 0 to 2 mm short of the radiographic apex does not guarantee that instrumentation beyond the apical foramen will be avoided. . . . Therefore radiographic working length measurements should be combined with electronic working length determination using modern apex locators.”2

    To learn more about, or to purchase, the Endo-Eze FIND apex locator kit, please call 800-552-5512 or visit Ultradent.com.

  • Ultradent, Inc. Partners with Crown Council’s Smiles for Life Foundation with Opalescence Whitening Products

    January 30, 2014 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. has partnered with the Crown Council in support of their annual 120-day Smiles for Life Foundation campaign, which encourages patients to “whiten [their] teeth and help a child.” The 2014 campaign will run from March 1 through June 30. During the campaign, approximately 1,000 participating Crown Council dentists throughout the U.S. and Canada will donate 100% of the proceeds from any teeth whitening procedure performed, toward helping children in their local communities and throughout the world. Ultradent has pledged to support the Smiles for Life Foundation by donating Opalescence whitening products to fulfill 100% of the campaign’s tooth whitening needs.


    The Smiles for Life Foundation is the official public children’s charity of the Crown Council. After patients receive their professional tooth whitening treatment from a participating Crown Council dentist, 50% of the appointment’s proceeds is contributed to a local children’s charity chosen by the dentist performing the treatment, and the other 50% benefits other national or worldwide children’s charities selected by the Smiles for Life Foundation. The Crown Council is a prestigious alliance of leading, cutting-edge dentists around the world who are strongly committed to excellence in their fields, continuing education, serving their communities through charitable work, and focusing on treating the patients—not just their teeth. The Council’s patient-centered approach seamlessly aligns with Ultradent’s foundational approach to minimally invasive, caring, patient-centered dentistry.


    Ultradent is known as the "tooth whitening company,” thanks to its world-renowned brand of Opalescence tooth whitening products. The extensive Opalescence product family includes take-home, syringe-delivered tooth whitening gels, as well as Opalescence Go, the brand’s newest prefilled hydrogen peroxide ready-to-go whitening system. Opalescence Boost is Opalescence’s powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide in-office chairside whitening treatment, which offers instant results. Most of Opalescence tooth whitening products include potassium nitrate and fluoride. Opalescence tooth whiteners come in sensitivity-reducing formulas, and products are available in Mint, Melon, Peach, and Regular flavors.

  • Ultradent Raises Over 350,000 lbs. of Food for Utah Food Bank & Typhoon Haiyan Victims

    December 5, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc. set a new record for its annual “Hunger Games”–themed food drive this year, raising 352,088 lbs. of food for the Utah Food Bank and Typhoon Haiyan victims through AmeriCares. Ultradent set its 2013 goal at 200,000 lbs. of food. The donation translates to $87,659 in total, and over $43,000 for each organization. Each year, Ultradent employees have consistently increased the amount of food/money raised during its annual food drive, and this year is no exception, as Ultradent increased its donation amount by 65%. (Ultradent raised 208,000 lbs. of food during its 2012 food drive, and 85,000 lbs. of food in 2011).


    Donations for Ultradent’s 2013 food drive were raised through numerous opportunity drawings, bake sales, and a “Food Truck Friday” event, organized by company employees. All funds/food donations were collected over an 11-day period, from November 5–November 11. Ultradent presented a check for $43,835 to the CEO of the Utah Food Bank on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, and will present the other half of funds raised to AmeriCares later this month. 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.”

  • Ultradent Kicks off 8th Annual “Hunger Games” Food Drive

    November 11, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc. will hold its 8th annual “Hunger Games”–themed food drive from November 11–November 21, 2013. Throughout the 2-week event, Ultradent employees will host numerous activities and fundraisers to collect donations for the Utah Food Bank.

    “The Utah Food Bank has come to know Ultradent as a company they can count on. We all know that hunger knows no season,” says Jeannie Nugent, who heads up Ultradent’s food drive every year. Since 2009, when Ultradent raised 18,651 lbs. of food, Ultradent has consistently lead the state year after year in pounds of food donated. Last year, Ultradent set its highest goal yet—100,000 lbs. of food—and ended up raising a total of 208,169 lbs. of food for the Utah Food Bank! To top it off, Ultradent also raised an additional $26,784 to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy through AmeriCares. Jeannie continues, “Help Ultradent fight the ‘Hunger Games’ by ‘Catching Fire’ from last year’s accomplishments. Sparks are going to fly!” 


     

    Ultradent’s “Hunger Games” Food Drive Activities Include:

Choose from colors Graphite, Gold, Fuchsia, and Teal, available in limited quantities while supplies last.

VALO’s optimally collimated beam is capable of polymerizing any dental material, including porcelain and underlying resins. The ergonomic design of VALO’s wand-style body and large footprint of the curing head provide unprecedented access to the oral cavity that other curing lights simply cannot reach. Precision milled from a solid bar of high-grade aircraft aluminum, VALO’s unique unibody construction ensures unsurpassed durability. Like the original VALO Cordless, VALO Colors comes with easy-to-replace, rechargeable batteries and a battery charger. VALO has the rare distinction of having recently received The Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award for the second consecutive year. VALO has also received numerous other prestigious industry awards and accolades, including several 5-Star Reality Awards.


    To see the vivid possibilities of VALO Colors, visit Ultradent Booth #3019 at ADA in New Orleans. Trade show attendees will receive 15% off any Ultradent purchase. To learn more, please call us at 800-552-5512 or visit ultradent.com.

  • Triodent Introduces V4 Ring Multi-Packs

    October 25, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Triodent and Ultradent Products, Inc. are pleased to announce the availability of the V4 ring, for purchase in multi-packs of two and three. The new packaging options allows clinicians who already own Triodent’s recently launched, revolutionary V4 ClearMetal Matrix™ system the convenience of replacing and replenishing the V4 rings, as necessary. The multi-packs also give the clinician unprecedented value, with the V4 Ring 3 Pack offering the lowest price-per-ring available. The V4 Ring Multi-Pack options include a Mixed 2 Pack, which includes a molar and pre-molar ring; a Pre-Molar 2 Pack; a Molar 2 Pack; and a V4 Ring 3 Pack, which comes with two molar and one pre-molar ring.


    Launched in July, the V4 Ring™ offers superior grip over the full range of embrasure and Class II cavity shapes and sizes. It performs especially well on large restorations, gripping even on severely compromised teeth, and the ring tines are transparent for light transmission. The matrix ring is also extremely durable and is easier to clean than other rings.


    The V4 ClearMetal Matrix System, featuring the ClearMetal Matrix™ with “micro-windows,” is the only transparent matrix with the advantages of metal malleability. Hundreds of microscopic resin-filled windows allow light to pass through the stainless steel, so curing composite in a Class II restoration can be initiated laterally and interproximally, as well as occlusally, while leaving no imprint on the composite. The system’s transparent V4 Wedge™ facilitates outstanding matrix retention and adaptation, and a perfect seal on the matrix at the gingival margin.


    Ultradent is Triodent’s exclusive dealer in the United States. To learn more about, or purchase the V4 Ring in one of the multi-pack options, call 800-552-5512 or visit ultradent.com.

  • Introducing ExperTemp™—A New Temporary Crown & Bridge Material

    September 20, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. introduces ExperTemp, a new temporary crown and bridge material that maintains both the function and esthetics of natural dentition. ExperTemp can also be used to fabricate inlays, onlays, and long-term temporaries that closely resemble the final restoration.


    ExperTemp, a bis-acryl composite provisional material, is composed of a 10:1 self-cure chemistry, making it easy to work with, while providing exceptional strength, flexibility, and abrasion resistance. With minimal effort, ExperTemp trims and polishes beautifully. In addition to its high abrasion resistance and flexibility, it also features low oxygen inhibition at polymerization. ExperTemp fluoresces similarly to enamel and sets at approximately 40–100 seconds intraorally. It can be repaired with a packable composite, a flowable composite, or additional ExperTemp material.


    ExperTemp is available in shades A1, A2, A3.5, B1, and Bleach White. All kits include one 50ml cartridge of ExperTemp and 15 Mixing tips.

  • ISO Adopts Ultradent’s Notched Edge Testing Method

    September 4, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently adopted Ultradent Products Inc.’s notched-edge shear bond strength testing method as a new standard. Ultradent created, refined, and has taught the notched-edge testing method over a number of years, resulting in a reproducible technique that many research organizations across the globe use today. After conducting a rigorous study involving over 20 independent organizations, ISO determined the notched-edge method superior to other shear bond strength testing methods previously available.


    ISO Standard 29022 specifies a shear test method used to determine the adhesive bond strength between direct dental restorative materials and tooth structure, such as dentin or enamel. The method is principally intended for adhesives and includes substrate selection, storage and handling of tooth structure, as well as the procedure for testing. A key element within the testing is a notched-edge crosshead used to shear the bonded specimen with an even distribution of force. Testing results are more accurate with a notched contact because they will closely approximate adhesive shear strength, rather than peel strength produced by using a straight contact.

  • VALO Awarded the Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award for Second Consecutive Year

    August 8, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, UT

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc., a global manufacturer and distributor of dental materials and equipment, received The Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award for VALO, Ultradent’s curing light, for the second consecutive year. The award is the highest honor for innovation in dental curing lights. Each product honored as “Best of Class” features unique characteristics that differentiate it from the competition in a compelling way and, more importantly, creates value for the general dentist.


    “VALO’s unmatched durability and uniquely powerful and collimated beam offers clinicians benefits that no other curing light can. The broad-spectrum output delivers irradiance from 395–480nm with an evenly distributed footprint and higher levels of power at a distance—which means better curing, regardless of material or technique,” said Suzanne Wilson, the senior brand manager at Ultradent. “VALO’s ease of use and low-profile design also truly differentiates it from the competition.”


    “Our evaluators determined that VALO is still the most advanced curing light on the market, and this is why  VALO was selected as the winner of The Pride Institute’s ‘Best of Class’ Technology Award for the second year in a row. This is extremely difficult to achieve based on how rigorous the selection process is —which speaks to the progressive nature of VALO’s technology,” said Dr. Lou Shuman, president of The Pride Institute.


    The panel that selects the “Best of Class” winners consists of seven dentists with significant knowledge of and experience in dental technology, including Dr. Shuman; John Flucke, DDS, writer, speaker and technology editor for Dental Products Report; Paul Feuerstein, DMD, writer, speaker and technology editor for Dental Economics; Titus Schleyer, DMD, PhD, associate professor and director of the Center for Dental Informatics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine; Marty Jablow, DMD, technology writer and consultant for Dr. Bicuspid; Parag Kachalia, DDS, vice chair of preclinical education research and technology at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry; and Larry Emmott, DDS, technology writer, speaker and dental marketing consultant.


    VALO will be showcased at the “Tech Expo” at the American Dental Association’s annual meeting from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3 in New Orleans.


    To learn more about VALO by Ultradent Products, Inc., please call 800-552-5512, or visit www.valo-led.com.

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. Celebrates 35th Anniversary

    July 9, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Later this month, Ultradent Products, Inc. will mark its 35th anniversary as a family-owned, international dental supply and manufacturing company. The company will celebrate its growth from a family-run, grassroots small business to the international industry leader it is today with a week’s worth of celebrations, which will include an employee picnic, game day, video presentation, and family movie night. Dr. Fischer will also speak at the kick-off event, reminiscing about Ultradent’s more than three decades in business.


    After graduation from Loma Linda University and beginning his own practice, Dr. Dan Fischer invented and patented his groundbreaking hemostatic solution, Astringedent, in 1976 as an answer to the need for a tissue management product that achieved more rapid, profound hemostasis. His desire to market his invention and to continue to develop more advanced dental solutions led him to found Ultradent Products, Inc. in 1979—setting the pace for a succession of products that today, includes a wide range of innovative dental materials.


    Business grew rapidly, and Ultradent expanded from a family-only home operation to its current 310,000-square-foot, two-building facility in South Jordan, Utah—a facility that presently houses more than 1,000 employees. The company has also garnered a strong international presence, operating nine offices and distribution centers worldwide, including subsidiaries in Europe, Asia, and South America.


    Ultradent currently researches, designs, manufactures, and packages more than 500 materials, devices, and instruments used by dentists around the world, including its renowned, industry-leading Opalescence tooth whitening system. Ultradent’s product family also includes the award-winning VALO curing light, UltraSeal XT hydro, Ultra-Etch, and the company’s newly released laser-sintered, highly esthetic composite veneer system: Edelweiss.


    Beyond the dental community, Ultradent donates products to humanitarian efforts locally, nationally, and internationally. Additionally, Ultradent sponsors a nonprofit organization, the Diversity Foundation, a progressive outreach program committed to preventing hate crimes and intolerance. The program promotes diversity and fosters multicultural awareness among individuals from all backgrounds.

  • Triodent Announces V4 ClearMetal Matrix System™

    July 1, 2013 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    ​Triodent and Ultradent Products, Inc. are delighted to introduce the V4 ClearMetal Matrix System™, featuring the ClearMetal Matrix™ with “micro-windows.” ClearMetal is the only transparent matrix with the advantages of metal malleability. Hundreds of microscopic resin-filled windows allow light to pass through the stainless steel, so curing composite in a Class II restoration can be initiated laterally and interproximally, as well as occlusally, while leaving no imprint on the composite.

     

    The V4 System creates natural contours with ease, and the added benefit of ring, matrix, and wedge transparency makes it a great match for bulk fill resins and deep cavities, giving the dentist peace of mind that the composite is sufficiently cured before the matrix is removed.

     

    A smart feature of the ClearMetal Matrix is that the micro-windows act like a “ramp cure,” where light intensity is increased gradually to reduce initial stress and optimize polymerization. Of course, once the matrix has been removed, the composite can be given a final cure.

     

    The V4 System also includes a new V4 Ring™, which has superior grip over the full range of embrasure and Class II cavity shapes and sizes. It performs especially well on large restorations, gripping even on severely compromised teeth, and the ring tines are transparent for light transmission. The matrix ring, which comes in molar and premolar sizes, is also extremely durable and easier to clean than other rings.

     

    Completing the system is the transparent V4 Wedge™. The wedge, though very small, is packed with unique features that facilitate outstanding matrix retention and adaptation, and a perfect seal on the matrix at the gingival margin.

     

    Triodent has a proud dental manufacturing history, led by the multi-award-winning V3 Sectional Matrix System.

     

    Triodent founder and CEO Dr. Simon McDonald says the launch of the V4 is exciting, not least because of the breakthrough technology featured in the matrix, and the innovations in the wedge.

     

    “It’s a fantastic thrill bringing a new product to market,” Dr McDonald says. “We always knew we were on a winner with V3 but it was humbling that dentists embraced it in the way they did. I’m confident the V4 will get the same reaction—it’s such a clever system.

     

    “Making the dentist’s job easier is always our primary aim in developing products, and we’ve done it again with V4. This is a product for bulk fill and traditional composite users. And whether they feel it’s necessary or not, dentists will find the cure-through option irresistible.”

     

    Initial reaction to V4 has been extremely positive. Leading dental educator Dr. John Comisi describes it as a “terrific device.”

     

    “Once again Triodent has made a major leap forward in improving the restorative process,” he says.

     

    V4 is available initially only in the United States, through Triodent’s exclusive U.S. dealer, Ultradent Products Inc., before being rolled out globally.

     

    The solution is clear – V4.

  • Utah-Europe Days Committee Recognizes Dr. Dan Fischer As "International Man of the Year"

    May 15, 2013 South Jordan, Utah

    ​The Utah-Europe Days Committee, sponsored in part by the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development, recognized Dr. Dan Fischer of Ultradent Products, Inc. as “International Man of the Year” for his contributions to sustaining economic and cultural relations between the state of Utah and the European Union. The reception honoring Dr. Fischer took place at the Zion’s Bank headquarters in Salt Lake City on May 9—known internationally as “Europe Day.”

     

    The descendent of a Danish immigrant who came to the U.S. via Ellis Island in 1920, Dr. Fischer credits the core values—among them “hard work”—instilled in him by his grandfather for his personal and professional success. Dr. Fischer founded Ultradent Products, Inc. in 1978 as a family-owned dental company in South Jordan, Utah. The company has since expanded to operating nine offices internationally, including offices in Germany and Italy, with distributors in Spain, France, and Portugal. Dr. Fischer credits many of his European colleagues with Ultradent’s international success in helping establish the company’s lines of distribution throughout the world.

     

    “Ultradent exports about 70% of what we make beyond U.S. borders, for which we’re very proud,” Dr. Fischer said at the event. “Some of my best friends in the world are Europeans—whom I must thank for having taught me so much.”

     

    French foreign minister, Robert Schuman, declared May 9 as “Europe Day” in 1949 as a celebration of peace and unity throughout the European Union. The Utah-Europe Days events are designed to help Utahans better understand one of the most dynamic epicenters of politics, economics, and business in the world.

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. CEO Dr. Dan Fischer Announces Erwin Fischer as Executive Vice President and Points the Direction for Future Generations.

    October 9, 2012 SOUTH JORDAN, UTAH

    Ultradent Products, Inc. announced the promotion of Erwin Fischer to executive vice president. As executive vice president, Erwin will work closely with Dr. Dan Fischer, president and CEO of Ultradent, to continue to build upon the company’s vision to improve oral health globally. Dr. Fischer stated: “Erwin has proven himself loyal, caring, and hard working. He lives all our core values in quality ways.”   

    “Ultradent started as a family business that has developed into an extended family of over 1,100 employees,” said Dr. Fischer. “Contrary to the common evolution of many businesses, particularly in the United States, it is my intent that Ultradent continue as a private family company for generations to come. I believe this translates into significant benefits to our customers and our employees. Erwin’s new role, combined with our goal to not sell the company or go public, enables us to chart our own course for the future and contribute to the current and future economic health of America as well as that of other countries.”

    Erwin has been with Ultradent from its inception—even prior to its incorporation in 1978. For the last six years, he has served as the vice president of information technology. Erwin’s notable achievements include management of two major ERP implementations, certification as an Oracle DBA Master, experience as an Oracle developer and business analyst, five years with Vistage Key Executive Group, and various other IT certifications. These accomplishments have coincided with Erwin’s managerial role in the development of a talented team of IT experts, the implementation of ITIL best practices in Ultradent’s IT department, and certification via the Kellogg School of Management to help strengthen Ultradent’s best practices. Erwin has also been a core team member of Ultradent’s strategic leadership group.  

    “It’s been a great privilege for me to work with so many incredible people in seeing that our corporate vision is realized,” said Erwin. “Our commitment to dentistry and its ability to help humans everywhere is very much ‘in our blood.’ I want to see Ultradent continue to grow and succeed for many generations to come.”

  • Dental Manufacturer Supports FDA Ban of Baby Products Containing BPA

    September 27, 2012 SOUTH JORDAN, UTAH

    Ultradent supports the United States Federal Drug Administration’s recent ban (http://1.usa.gov/OoJBzt) of products which contain bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical known to cause harmful physical and psychological effects in children. Ultradent has always maintained a BPA-free manufacturing requirement for its dental sealants (UltraSeal XT® plus and UltraSeal XT® hydro).  

    “Ultradent does not use, nor do we plan to ever use bisphenol A dimethacrylate (the primary precursor resin to BPA when used in dental materials) in any of our resin dental products,” said Dr. Dan Fischer, President/CEO of Ultradent Products, Inc. “Furthermore, we use the purest form of Bis-GMA resin available for our Bis-GMA-based products. Using highly sensitive analytic equipment, not even a trace of BPA can be detected.” 

    Ultradent recently launched a website dedicated to BPA education. The website, www.ultrasealxt.com, is the host for frequently asked questions about bisphenol A (BPA) and its use in dental sealants. The tool is equipped with varied media, including podcasts, a children’s development corner, and information specific to Ultradent’s award-winning UltraSeal XT plus.

  • ​Manufacturer of the industry-leading dental sealant UltraSeal XT plus, Ultradent introduces UltraSeal XT hydro, a hydrophilic pit and fissure sealant

    July 16, 2012 SOUTH JORDAN, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc., introduces UltraSeal XT® hydro, a new sealant with a hydrophilic chemistry. UltraSeal XT hydro incorporates advanced adhesive technology and fluorescent properties to offer exceptional, patient-centered results.

    Based on the proven, award-winning chemistry of UltraSeal XT plus, UltraSeal XT hydro’s hydrophilic properties eliminate the need for the clinician to pretreat the tooth with a drying agent, allowing for faster treatments without compromising quality results. It also fluoresces under a black light, making it easy to check retention at the time of placement and at subsequent visits. UltraSeal XT hydro’s advanced adhesive technology securely bonds to enamel, increasing marginal retention and reducing microleakage, resulting in fewer patients who need sealants re-placed.

    UltraSeal XT hydro maintains the always-BPA-free chemistry that UltraSeal XT plus has been recognized for. It is available in Natural and Opaque White shades and is easily delivered with a syringe and the Inspiral® Brush tip.

  • Ultradent Introduces Edelweiss

    May 2, 2012 Salt Lake City, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. plans to launch Edelweiss, a uniquely engineered composite veneer system, at the California Dental Association Session in Anaheim this week. Attendees of the session will get a first glimpse at the low-cost, esthetic alternative to custom lab veneers.

    Each composite veneer in the Edelweiss system is laser sintered, combining a high-gloss, uniform surface with a thermally tempered base. This unique manufacturing technology makes Edelweiss veneers harder than other composite veneers, resulting in greater resistance to scratching and wear.

    Ultradent intends Edelweiss as a solution for those seeking a lower-cost alternative to custom lab veneers, unlocking the opportunity for dentists to offer esthetic smiles to more patients. With no need for lab work or separate appointments for consultations, impressions, temporary seatings and permanent restorations, Edelweiss allows patients to get a natural-looking, long-lasting smile in just one appointment. Edelweiss composite veneers are available in an assortment of sizes, requiring minimal adaptation and tooth preparation.

    Ultradent will showcase Edelweiss at the CDA Annual Session along with the Triodent V3 system and the VALO Cordless curing light. For more information, follow our tweets (#CDAUltradent) or stop by our booth (#450).

  • Ultradent Products, Inc. Expands its Line of Innovative Cements

    February 21, 2012 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. will introduce three new cements at the Chicago Midwinter Meeting this week. UltraCem™ Resin-Reinforced Glass Ionomer, PermaShade™ LC and UltraTemp REZ™ complete Ultradent’s current line of temporary and permanent cements.

    UltraCem™ Resin-Reinforced Glass Ionomer is the first liquid-powder RRGI cement to be mixed and delivered conveniently in a syringe. UltraCem offers the best of both worlds: efficient delivery and unsurpassed performance. Its advanced chemistry boasts the highest bond strengths in its category, while its unique SpeedMix™ syringe ensures the ultimate luting convenience. UltraCem is used for luting indirect restorations made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, resin to natural teeth and cementation of orthodontic bands to enamel.

    The most recent addition is PermaShade™ LC, a light-cured luting resin used exclusively for cementing veneers. With enduring color stability and low shrinkage, PermaShade LC is ideal for creating a long-lasting, esthetic smile. As with other Ultradent innovations, its ergonomic contra-angle syringe makes luting delicate veneers more convenient than standard delivery methods. And finally, Ultradent has added UltraTemp REZ™ for cementing of temporary crowns, onlays, and small temporary fillings. The cement is strong enough to withstand normal biting and chewing forces but can easily be removed.

    For more information on any of Ultradent’s new cements, please visit www.ultradent.com or call our customer service at 1-800-552-5512.

  • 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. ​
