Pride Institute Technology Expo offers hands-on experience, CE

11 10 2010

Through its Technology Expo, the Pride Institute provided a full circle experience for this year’s show attendees.

Not only did attendees have a chance to experience this year’s Pride Institute “Best of Class” technology winners first hand, they also had the opportunity to take in CE that was offered at the expo all three days.

This year’s technology fair winners and exhibitors included: Sirona Dental Systems’ CEREC AC for digital impressions and for CAD/CAM; Discus Dental’s NV Laser; Tekscan’s T-Scan; Air Techniques’ Spectra caries detection device; The Dexis Platinum Digital Sensor; Gendex’s GXCB-500; and Henry Schein’s Dentrix G4. Attendees had the chance to watch demonstrations and have a hands-on experience with each winning technology.

Saturday’s show ended with a reception at the expo that drew some of dentistry’s key opinion leaders and biggest names, including DPR Technology Editor Dr. John Flucke and John Semmelmayer, CEO of Discus Dental, something Pride Institute President Lou Shuman said was great to see.

CE continued at the expo throughout the show and covered a variety of topics, including  social media, what to consider before purchasing a new technology and determing ROI.

“We look forward to many years of collaboration (with the ADA) and providing the dental community with the best advice in the field of new and existing technology,” Dr. Shuman said.
