lythos-product-imageOrmco Corporation, Orange, Calif, was named as a winner in the 2013 Best in Biz Awards—the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. The company’s Lythos Digital Impression System was recognized as a silver winner in the Best New Product of the Year, Small or Medium Business category.

The system uses digital scanning to reduce the need for traditional PVS impressions. The intraoral scanner was developed to help make orthodontists’ transition to digital impressions easier and more efficient. To support seamless practice adoption, and ensure the scanner is a sound financial investment, Lythos features a unique open platform that allows data to be easily integrated with orthodontic labs and manufacturers. This helps to produce a variety of custom appliances and/or study models.

Winners of 2013 Best in Biz Awards were determined by an independent panel of 50 judges from top-tier news, business, and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms. More than 500 entries were received, from public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the United States and Canada.

“This acknowledgement, from the Best in Biz Awards and its respected panel of judges, speaks to Lythos’ innovation and ability to offer orthodontists a state-of-the-art, practice-enhancing treatment tool,” said Vicente Reynal, president of Ormco. “We’re honored to receive recognition for our dedication to the digital orthodontic industry and the important role that Lythos Digital Impression System has played in advancing the way leading orthodontists treat patients.”
