For the fourth year running, lncisal Edge dental lifestyle magazine has partnered with the Edison Awards™ to honor the top products and most impressive advances dentistry has seen in the last year.

The first battery-operated, handheld intra-oral X-Ray system, first FDA approved, CO2 9.3 micron dental laser for hard and soft tissue, and first 45 degree electric attachment handpiece paved the way for dental innovations everywhere in 2015.

That same year, those dental revolutions were spotlighted during the prestigious Edison Awards™ gala in New York (shown) when The Edison Awards™ — which has recognized advances such as the Apple ipad; Keurig Vue® single cup brewing system;  and OnStar For My Vehicle (FMV)— added a dental category.

Since then, Edison Award-winning dental innovators at the Gold, Silver and Bronze have included:

2015: Vatech, 3M, 3D Systems, Aribex, Convergent Dental, Kerr Endodontics, Olympus Corporation of the Americas, NSK, Molar Media Mount, Benco Dental, and Inventionstring.

2016: Solea ®  by Convergent Dental, Multi-Axis Spiral Suction by Ghost Mfg, Oral B Pro 5000 with Bluetooth by Procter & Gamble, Dr. Kim’s Shadowless Headlamp by

2017: ECO Balance by GLO Science™, Inc., Throat Scope® by Holland Healthcare Inc. and 3M™ Mobile True Definition Scanner by 3M.
