PlanmecaUSA, Roselle, Ill, has introduced a new certification program designed to encourage dialogue between patients and their dental practitioners on imaging radiation levels.

The company, which manufactures and sells imaging equipment such as the Planmeca ProMax® 3D systems, which includes a ultra-low-dose (ULD) feature, has developed a complimentary ULD certification program exclusively for Planmeca ProMax 3D ULD-capable systems.

The ULD certification program features Planmeca ULD certified office display materials to inform patients that the practice is using advanced safety/quality care x-ray equipment. In addition, certification participants will have access to downloadable digital materials for use on their practice’s website and social media outlets to educate and market the practice as Planmeca ULD certified. Participants will also be listed in a searchable database of Planmeca ULD certified dental professionals for prospective patients seeking low radiation imaging.

The complimentary program is available to all practices using Planmeca ProMax 3D Ultra Low Dose™ enabled systems.

The Planmeca ULD certification registration program is available at
