Convergent Dental, Needham, Massachusetts, a privately owned dental equipment and technology company and developer of Solea — the world’s first computer-aided CO2 laser system — has been ranked 77th on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in the U.S. Winners are selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2013 to 2016.
Michael Cataldo, Convergent Dental’s chief executive officer, credits the company’s product performance and a strong commitment to customer success with the company’s 2002% revenue growth during this period. “We’re thrilled to be ranked as one of the top 100 growing technology companies in North America and ranked second in the medical device category. There is no doubt that the Solea laser is revolutionizing dentistry by taking the shot, the drill and the scalpel out of the patient experience.”
According to Convergent, Solea is the only CO2 laser system to be cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for all-tissue indications. It is said to give clinicians a great deal of reliability when performing procedures. It requires no anesthesia and is blood-free, suture-free, and pain-free — and is designed to deliver an improved dental experience for both clinicians and patients.
