3M ESPE is the most innovative company in the worldwide dental industry for the eighth consecutive year, according to the 2012 Dental Industry Review, which is published by The Anaheim Group. The recognition is based on the number of new product approvals and international patents awarded during the past year.
The Dental Industry Review studies three factors in determining its “most innovative” honorees: FDA 510(k) new product clearances for the US market, United States Patent Office dental industry patents, and dental patents from the European Patent Office and the World International Patent Office.
3M ESPE was recognised for 63 innovations in total during 2012, including the 3M™ True Definition Scanner, 3M™ ESPE™ RelyX™ Ultimate Adhesive Resin Cement, and the 3M™ ESPE™ Retraction Capsule.
