“With this new platform, Solea has reached a level that I can see it becoming the standard of care,” Michael Cataldo, CEO of Convergent Dental, told Dental Tribune during a telephone interview on Oct. 1, when the new version of Solea was announced. “It’s easy. It’s really easy — and in most cases it is as fast or faster than the drill.”
Cataldo said that users of the Solea laser have reported that they are able to perform an average of four to six more procedures a day, when it feels like they are doing less.
“Solea means less work, with more revenue,” Cataldo said. “If you have been thinking about lasers, it’s time.”
A press release from Convergent Dental timed to coincide with the announcement about Solea offered further details. The latest advancements to Solea, the company said, provide unprecedented performance, significant software upgrades, improved ergonomics, increased accessibility and a smaller footprint.
“This new generation of Solea provides a quantum leap in performance at every level. Most importantly it enables dentists to do virtually 100 percent of cavity preps anesthesia-free,” Cataldo said in the press release. “In addition, Solea now cuts faster and smoother, so dentists get more done in less time with an even better patient experience.”
Solea earned its reputation for enabling dramatic practice growth and reduced stress for dentists and patients by taking anesthesia, bleeding, sutures and discomfort out of the dental experience, according to the Convergent Dental press release. Before the launch of this new platform, Solea dentists reported doing four to six more procedures per day while feeling like they were doing less work, Convergent Dental said. With this new generation, Solea dentists will benefit from even more growth while enjoying an even more relaxing work day. Better still, it all comes in a smaller package that is even easier to use, the company said.
According to Convergent Dental, statistics collected from nearly 1,000 procedures in early use of the new Solea platform included the following results:
Also according to the company, other features and benefits include the following:
According to Convergent Dental, 99.2 percent of 833 cavities and 132 soft-tissue procedures were treated successfully without local anesthesia in early use.
Cataldo said that those interested in learning more about Solea are invited to visit Convergent Dental at the upcoming ADA 2018 meeting, to be held Oct 18-22 in Honolulu, and at the upcoming Greater New York Dental Meeting, to be held Nov. 25-28 in New York City.
