And the Award Goes to…Congratulations to the Cellerant Best of Class Hygiene Award Winners!

by Cellerant Best of Class Hygiene Awards

Since the inaugural presentation in 2009, the Cellerant Best of Class Technology Awards have grown to occupy a unique space in the dental industry by creating awareness of manufacturers that are driving the discussion as to how practices will operate now and in the future. This this is the second year for the Best of Class Hygiene Awards.

Over the course of each year, the panel members seek out and conduct research on potentially practice-changing technologies, with deliberations on nominees and final voting typically taking place in February. Panelists are precluded from voting in any category where they have consulting relationships. The entire selection process is conducted and managed on a not-for-profit basis and is transparent and rigorous.
