Carestream Dental, manufacturer of the KODAK RVG 6500 System, has been recognized as one of 16 companies to receive the Pride Institute’s Best of Class Technology Award for 2011.

“We were thrilled to be recognized by the Pride Institute,” said Edward Shellard, DMD, chief marketing officer and director of business development for Carestream Dental. “We design all our products to deliver exceptional performance and sincerely appreciate the opportunity to have them tested by such a highly-regarded and experienced panel.” A panel of dental technology experts, organized by the Pride Institute, a dental practice management consulting firm based in Novato, Calif., selected this year’s winning products through an unbiased, rigorous assessment process.

The winning technologies were selected by majority vote and divided into four categories: Foundational, Diagnostic, Therapeutic and Emerging.

Pride Institute’s commitment is to provide the finest information and counsel in all areas of practice management.”
