The Pride Institute


October 18, 2012

The “Best of Class” Technology Awards represent an initiative to inspire new and existing technology companies to improve on an annual basis and to educate those in the dental profession to use technology effectively. It is an unbiased nonprofit initiative that in conjunction with the leading technology experts in the field, selects annually the most important technologies in the industry. The impact of this initiative has resulted in cooperation of the major journals and the ADA in providing education and presentation of the technologies at the ADA Annual Session, the Greater New York Meeting, and in Dental Products Report, Dentistry Today, Dental Economics, and ADA News.
