THE DENTAL ADVISOR product awards are given to those products that stand out from all others in the marketplace in their particular category.   These products are chosen through lengthy discussion, voting, and agreement from the organization’s Editorial Board.   The board consists of respected dental professionals with experience in all areas of clinical dentistry, as well as dental research.   These practicing clinicians, dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental laboratory technicians and researchers convene weekly to discuss all products evaluated by THE DENTAL ADVISOR over the course of the year.   Based on their votes, as well as those submitted by THE DENTAL ADVISOR’s editors, an award is given for each product category.
The Polaris Intraoral Camera blends exceptional digital image quality with unmatched ergonomic benefits. Features that are unique to Polaris include “capture upon release” and a patent-pending 330° swivel head. Polaris’ unique “capture-upon release” feature ensures sharp, steady images by allowing the user to depress a button on the handpiece, focus on the area to be captured, and then simply release the depressed button. The 330° swivel head lets clinicians capture every angle of the oral cavity with minimal effort and maximum comfort.
