The Award is selected by a panel of the most prominent technology leaders in dentistry
Kadima, Israel – September 3, 2020 — Nobio Ltd. today announced that its Infinix family of composites has been selected as a 2020 Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award recipient in the emerging technology category. The Best of Class “Emerging” awards recognize innovative technologies that either define new product categories altogether or stand to challenge established category leadership. The “Emerging” designation is intended to alert the dental community to promising new technologies or companies that have the potential to greatly impact the standard of care in dentistry.
“Announcing the award winners is especially meaningful this year,” said Dr. Lou Shuman, CEO 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.”
“The idea is simple, while the science is pure genius”, commented Dr. John Flucke, Best of Class panel member, Technology Editor and Chief Dental Editor of Dental Products Report. “Nobio has developed a chemical with antibacterial properties and incorporated it into Infinix composite. Most composite restorations last just 5 to 7 years due to recurrent caries at the restoration/tooth interface. Infinix solves that problem by basically killing any bacteria that comes in contact with the restoration.”

About the Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award
Since the inaugural presentation in 2009, the Best of Class Technology Awards have grown to occupy a unique space in dentistry by creating awareness to the dental community what technologies and products of the thousands available can truly impact how practices will operate now and in the future.
The selection process relies on an expert panel of dentists recognized as thought leaders and educators. It includes, Dr. John Flucke, Dr. Marty Jablow, Dr. Paul Feuerstein, Dr. Chris Salierno, Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, and Dr. Lou Shuman. Over the course of each year, the panel members seek out and conduct research on potentially practice-changing technologies, with deliberations on nominees and final voting taking place in February. Panelists are precluded from voting in any category where they have consulting relationships. The entire selection process is conducted and managed on a not-for-profit basis.
