Orascoptic, the dental industry’s leading provider of loupe magnification and headlight systems, has been selected as a 2018 recipient of the Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award. “The Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award continues to highlight the innovative dental technologies that will help shape the future of our profession,” said Dr. Lou Shuman, Best of Class founder and Cellerant CEO.

Orascoptic has been a pioneer in the dental vision industry for over 30 years, designing award-winning dental, surgical and hygiene loupes and headlight systems. With a legacy of advanced product performance and clinician-first features we continue to set the benchmark for innovation, quality craftsmanship, and durability. Our two-time winner, EyeZoom, is the first adjustable magnification loupe, offering three magnification levels ranging from 3x-5x. Three-time winner Spark is an innovative patent-pending cordless headlight, designed to dispense weight evenly across the bridge of the loupe frame.

“Winning these awards serves as proof that the time, funding and resources that we pour into research, development and product innovation is truly impacting lives of clinicians for the better,” said Matt Oren, Orascoptic’s Head of Research and Development. “It’s quite gratifying to receive such prestigious awards for products we created with the intent of improving dentists’ daily lives.”

“The award winners have revolutionized, simplified, or advanced their category in a meaningful way,” said Dr. John Flucke, Cellerant CDO and Best of Class panel member. “We also make sure that winning technologies work in our actual practice settings providing confidence in recommending them to our peers.” Best of Class voting panel members represent the leading voices in dental technology and make selections based on an unbiased, rigorous, and transparent selection process.

In addition to Dr. Shuman, the 2018 Best of Class panel consisted of John Flucke, DDS, Technology Editor for Dental Products Report; Paul Feuerstein, DMD, Technology Editor for Dentistry Today; Marty Jablow, DMD, known as America’s Technology Coach; Pam Maragliano-Muniz, DMD, Associate Clinical Professor at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine; and Chris Salierno, DDS, Chief Editor of Dental Economics.

“Orascoptic is thrilled to have two flagship products selected by such a high-caliber panel of outside experts,” said Drew Weightman, General Manager at Orascoptic. “Our teams work tirelessly to develop and introduce visualization technology that improves the lives of clinicians – this recognition is validation that we are succeeding. We will be displaying these awards with pride.”
