CS 3500 intraoral scanner wins 2015 Edison Award

Awards and accolades

The CS 3500 intraoral scanner by Carestream Dental has been awarded a bronze 2015 Edison Award in the category of Dental 3D Printers and Services by the internationally renowned Edison Awards™. The distinguished award, inspired by Thomas Edison's persistence and inventiveness, recognizes innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.

"It's exciting to see companies like Carestream Dental continuing Thomas Edison's legacy of challenging conventional thinking," Frank Bonafilia, executive director, Edison Awards, said. "Edison Awards recognizes the game-changing products and services, and the teams that brought them to consumers."

"We're very proud of the way that the CS 3500 is changing restorations and appliance fabrication in the field of dentistry," Ed Shellard, DMD, vice president, global sales and marketing, Carestream Dental said. "It's an honour to have the scanner recognized for its innovation; it sets the bar high as we continue to advance this award-winning technology."

The CS 3500 allows practitioners to easily acquire true colour 2D and 3D images. Requiring no external heater or trolley system, the CS 3500 features high-angulation scanning of up to 45 degrees and to a depth from -2 to +13mm. Additionally, the CS 3500 uses open-format STL files for easy sharing and can be plugged directly into a computer's USB - making it truly portable. The scanner offers workflows for restorative dentistry, orthodontics and implantology.

The CS 3500 also featured among the top products for 2014 in Dentistry Today's 28th Annual Top 100 Products issue.

Edison Award nominees are judged by more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics from across the nation whose votes acknowledge the CS 3500's success in meeting the award's stringent criteria of quality. The voting panel includes marketing professionals; scientists; designers; engineers; and academics.
