It’s exciting and uplifting to change the narrative for a moment by recognizing deserving award winners and sharing these amazing technologies with colleagues, says Lou Shuman, DMD, CAGS, chief executive officer of Cellerant and founder of the Best of Class Technology Awards.
MouthWatch, known for its teledentistry solutions, digital case presentation tools and intraoral imaging devices, was awarded a 2020 Cellerant Best of Class Award for its professional grade teledentistry platform, TeleDent.
According to MouthWatch founder and chief executive officer Brant Herman, “We’re deeply honored and appreciative to be recognized by the renowned panel of Cellerant judges for TeleDent, our provider-focused, patient-friendly teledentistry solution. Although TeleDent was selected for the Best of Class Award back in February, more recently it has been proving itself to be indispensable dental technology in the new normal of COVID-19.”
TeleDent was designed to put dental professionals in the driver’s seat for sharing patient data, clinical information, and intraoral images and videos in real-time or via store and forward technology. The cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant software enhances referrals, oral health screenings, clinician/patient consultations and collaboration between GPs and specialists, group practice locations, and hygienists working under remote supervision. According to the company, using TeleDent enables practitioners in public health and private practice settings to reach new patients, increase production, and elevate the standard of care.
“Announcing the award winners is especially meaningful this year,” says Lou Shuman, DMD, CAGS, chief executive officer of Cellerant and founder of the Best of Class Technology Awards. “The Chicago Midwinter, where the Best of Class Panel selected the award winners, was really the last in person event for the dental community in 2020. Dentists and their staffs, as well as these companies, have overcome many unbelievable challenges since then. So, it’s exciting and uplifting to change the narrative for a moment by recognizing these deserving award winners and sharing these amazing technologies with our colleagues.”
MouthWatch was also included in this year’s annual Inc 5000 list, which ranks the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. As stated in a release, the list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. After being founded only eight years ago, it is in good company as Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc 5000. MouthWatch enters the Inc 5000 at #1303.
“It’s beyond exciting for our entire team and customers to see the incredible growth MouthWatch has accomplished in recent years,” adds Herman. “While we are known for our achievements in improving dental care, we are striving for broader goals within healthcare. It’s humbling to have MouthWatch recognized by the Inc 5000 and to remind us of how far we’ve come.”
In addition, this year TeleDent won Dentistry Today 2020 Top Innovative Products Award and the MouthWatch Intraoral Camera was awarded the Dentistry Today Top 100 Products Award, based on its affordable high quality.
