December 12, 2016 -- DrBicuspid.com is pleased to announce the finalists chosen by our readers for the 2016 Dental Excellence Awards. We want to thank the hundreds of readers who participated in the voting.

The winners will be announced in late January after deliberation by DrBicuspid.com's expert industry panel and staff. The awards will be presented at the 2017 Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting in February.

Voters nominated more than 100 products and consultants nominees in eight categories to determine our finalists. Nominees in the new product categories were introduced between October 1, 2015, and October 1, 2016. Unlike other awards, the Dental Excellence Awards are exclusively nominated by our readership.
