First-time exhibitors, product launches at CDA Presents

More than 400 companies will showcase new technology and dental innovations in exhibit halls on the first and second levels of Moscone West for CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry Aug. 24-26 in San Francisco.

With nearly 70,000 square feet of exhibit hall space, Moscone West gives attendees ample opportunity to network with dental industry experts, check out West Coast product launches and see, touch and learn about new products, innovations and technologies available in the field of dentistry.

“We encourage members to shop at the exhibit halls to get convention-only pricing and to show their support for the hundreds of exhibitors that contribute to the success of CDA Presents,” said Mark Romanelli, DDS, chair of the CDA Presents board of managers.

Highlighted here are just a handful of the new products, including two from first-time CDA Presents exhibitors, that attendees can expect to discover in San Francisco:

  • ATOM, Medidenta (Booth 629)
    This micro-head, high-speed handpiece has a lightweight and slim body design, which allows for easy access to areas that are hard to reach while providing “superior visibility without compromising comfort.” Its 16 watts of power “allow you to cut smoothly and confidently without the loss of torque.”
  • DEXcam 4HD, KaVo Kerr – DEXIS (Booth 721)
    This intraoral camera with a 1.3 million-pixel CMOS sensor delivers high-definition images that remain clear without distortion when enlarged.

  • EMS-200, Meta Biomed, Inc. (Booth 542)
    Included with this all-in-one endodontic treatment system are an endo motor, apex locator and pen style pack and fill. Featuring touch-screen control, the device is compact and lightweight and allows the use of the endo motor and apex locator at the same time. This also controls the obturator for both pack and fill features. “The unit will be mounted on your dental chair or cart        to allow ease of use and ensure accuracy.”
