Pride Institute “Best of Class” Technology Fair, 2014

SAN JOSE, CA — Anatomage is honored to announce that the Pride Institute has recognized Invivo5 with the “Best of Class” Technology Award for 2014 as a product that demonstrates excellence in its category.

Invivo5 is the current release of the InVivoDental imaging software. Invivo5 is comprehensive software for CBCT users, covering all clinical applications such as Implantology, CAD/CAM, Orthodontics, Oral Surgery, Periodontics, Prosthodontics, Radiology, Medicine and General Science. Invivo5 can cover the entire work-flow from diagnosis, and treatment planning, to custom appliance ordering in one application.

With a focus on credibility and meaningful innovation, the Pride Institute’s “Best of Class” Technology Award — now in its sixth year — continues to recognize products that demonstrate excellence in their category.

A panel, comprised of leading voices in dental technology, comes together each year to discuss, debate and decide what products merit recognition. All technology categories are considered, but if there is no clear differentiator that sets a product apart in its category, then no winner is selected. Each product honored as “Best of Class” features unique characteristics that differentiate it from the competition in a compelling way, and more importantly, creates value for the general dentist.

Organized by Dr. Lou Shuman, President of Pride Institute, the panel is committed to a selection method that is unbiased and rigorous. Throughout the course of the year, members of the panel review new and existing technologies in preparation for the vote. Panelists who receive compensation from dental companies are prevented from voting in that company’s category. Over the years, the panel has developed a rapport that makes space for important conversations about value of different innovations and how evolving categories become more or less valuable to the general dentist. The spirited debate that follows results in a variety of products — obscure and well-known, basic and aspirational — being honored.

“Best of Class” founder, Lou Shuman, DMD, CAGS, stated that “The foundation for our success is, and has always been, our formula: technology leadership in dentistry, unbiased, and not for profit. The commitment of the distinguished panel and our partners at the American Dental Association help us maintain the integrity that creates true value.”

The panel consists of five dentists with significant knowledge of and experience in dental technology, including Dr. Shuman; John Flucke, DDS, writer, speaker and Chief Dental Editor for Dental Products Report; Paul Feuerstein, DMD, writer, speaker and Technology Editor for Dentistry Today; Marty Jablow, DMD, technology writer and consultant for Dr. BiCuspid; and Parag Kachalia, DDS, Vice-Chair of Preclinical Education, Research and Technology, University of Pacific School of Dentistry.

“Everyone on the panel is not only recognized as being an outstanding speaker and leader in the industry, but they are also actively seeing patients. When they say a product is worthwhile, it is because they see the value for the patient outcome and real-world impact,” said Dr. Shuman. “They are able to recognize the innovation that dentists need as well as push the envelope in what dentists should embrace as our profession progresses.”

The Pride Institute Best of Class Technology awards were launched in 2009 as a new concept to provide an unbiased, non-profit assessment of available technologies in the dental space.

March 2012 - Anatomage Table at TED 2012

The Anatomage Table Presented at TED 2012

The buzz and popularity of the Anatomage Table continues to grow. Anatomage founder and CEO, Dr. Jack Choi was invited to give a presentation at the celebrated TED 2012 Conference in Long Beach, California. On Wednesday February 29, 2012, to the delight of over 3000 of the world's leading innovators and pioneers, Dr. Choi demonstrated the amazing visuals and the natural intuitive interface of the Anatomage Table. He spoke about his views on the future of medical education and how imaging technology will become pivotal for the next generation of students and surgeons.

Table Ted

The Anatomage Table provides 1-to-1 life-size visualizations of 3D anatomy based on real patient data. The Table not only complements cadaveric dissection courses but also serves as a solution for institutions with limited budgets and anatomy resources. Users can virtually dissect skeletal tissues, muscles, and organs like never before. Bridging the gap between radiology and anatomy, it allows students to dynamically switch between volume renderings and traditional 2D radiographs. A combination of leading software visualizations and an interactive hardware interface, the Anatomage Table is sure to become a new standard for anatomy education.

February 2014 - Anatomage Implant Study Club

Anatomage Implant Study Club- Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

"Guide to Anatomy, Guide to Confidence"

3D Imaging Software can provide many benefits to patients and clinicians. From initial consultation to final restoration, a digital pipeline can reduce the timeline and increase efficiency. In order to take full advantage of the course it is recommended that the entire treatment team attend – surgeon, restorative dentist, auxiliary staff, and dental technician. >Our lecture will feature the award winning Invivo5 3D Imaging Software, Anatomage Guide, and Biomet 3i Navigator System.

Goals and Objectives

This course is intended for clinicians who desire an introduction to digitally aided diagnostics, treatment planning, and the fabrication of surgical guides. Special emphasis is given to chair-side and laboratory procedures, maximizing surgical guide efficiency and delivering a comprehensive understanding of the capabilities of the latest 3D dental imaging software. This course covers single to multipleunit restorations.

The benefits of the immediate involvement of the entire treatment team (i.e. restorative dentist, dental specialist, and dental technician) will be explored.
