From Phoenix to Chicago and across the U.S., NSK Dental made an impression on women in dentistry this fall.
On September 28, the American Association of Women Dentists (AAWD) recognized the company’s Nano 95LS electric handpiece attachment in the 2019 Best New Product Contest. During the 98th Annual Conference of AAWD at the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa, in Phoenix, 2019 President Dr. Brittany Bergeron presented the award to NSK representative Katie Capalungan.
During the event, AAWD conference attendees voted on exhibitors’ products, and the NSK Nano 95LS received the most votes.
A few days later, October 3-5 in Chicago, NSK supported Benco Dental’s 7th annual Lucy Hobbs Project Celebration of women in dentistry as one of the event sponsors.
“Women are an important and growing demographic in dentistry. We wanted to show our support through a line of handpieces that meet their needs from an ergonomic perspective, which will ultimately impact their outcomes while in practice, and we believe that the Nano handpieces deliver on this.”
Colan Rogers, President/GM at NSK stated in a press release.
Lighten up? The Nano answers the call
The NSK Nano 95LS 1:5 increasing hand-piece attachment offers the quality and durability of the Z-Series of attachments (titanium body, ceramic bearings, Quattro spray, DLC coating, cellular glass optics, clean head system, push-button chuck, microfilter).
However, the award-winning product is 10 percent lighter and shorter than conventional models, making it a perfect fit for smaller hands, such as those of the female dentist.
The size makes it feel as though it is a natural extension of the hand. The NSK Nano 95LS has a maximum speed of 200,000 min-1, for FG burs, and a suggested retail price of $1,629.
“I was delighted to see a new partner of AAWD won our product of the year contest! It’s exciting to see that manufacturers are starting to make more products for women and their individual needs.”
Dr. Britany Bergeron, AAWD president and 2019 conference chair stated in a press release.
The NSK Nano 95LS is available through Benco Dental.
