Dr Jean Bausch GmbH & Co. KG, the dental industry's leading provider of articulating and occlusion test materials, has been selected as a 2019 Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award recipient.
"We are entering a new era in dentistry - one that will change how we diagnose, treat, and manage our patients and practices," said Dr Lou Shuman, CEO of Cellerant and founder of the Best of Class Technology Awards. "This was a breakthrough year in product and services technologies. The panel spent hundreds of hours in close discussion reviewing and analysing the corporate landscape. Pay close attention to our winners as they are truly leading the way to provide you what is best in today's contemporary practice."
About the Bausch company and Occlusense
Since 1953, Dr. Jean Bausch GmbH & Co. KG has specialised in the manufacture of special articulating - occlusion test materials designed to represent occlusal proportions on the masticatory surfaces as true to nature as possible. The new system, OccluSense, developed by Bausch, combines the traditional and digital registration of the pressure distribution on occlusal surfaces. The OccluSense device is being used in combination with a 60 microns thin single-use pressure sensor colour coated in red, which is being applied exactly like a conventional occlusion test foil. The patient's masticatory pressure distribution is being recorded digitally in 256 pressure levels and then transmitted to the OccluSense iPad App for further evaluation. The traditional colour transfer on the occlusal surfaces of the patient facilitates the assignment of the captured data. The recordings are being stored in the patient management system of the iPad app and can be reviewed or exported any time.
"The demand for and the interest in our OccluSense system are enormous and have exceeded our expectations by far. Having set very high standards in the development and expansion of our new product have now been rewarded with this outstanding Cellerant Best of Class Award 2019," said André Bausch, Managing Director and inventor of the OccluSense. At this point we want to recite Chris Salierno, DDS, Cellerant Best of Class panel member: "If there isn't a clear winner in a category then we won't select one. This award is about letting the public know when a company has raised the bar."
The 2019 Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award is selected by a panel of the most prominent technology leaders in dentistry: Paul Feuerstein, DMD, technology editor for Dentistry Today, John Flucke, DDS, technology editor for Dental Products Report, Marty Jablow, DMD, known as America's technology coach, Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, DMD, editor-in-chief of Inside Dental Hygiene, Chris Salierno, DDS, editor-in-chief of Dental Economics, and Lou Shuman, DMD, CAGS, founder and creator of the Best of Class Technology Award.
