Convergent Dental of Natick, a privately held dental equipment and technology company, has entered into a distribution partnership for its dental laser product, Solea.
Dental practitioners will be able to buy Solea from Darby Dental Supply, the nation's largest all-telesales distributor of dental merchandise, Convergent Dental announced Tuesday.
"As word of Solea's virtually anesthesia-free and blood-free capabilities spread throughout the dental community, we were excited to see a well-respected dental distributor like Darby Dental Supply reach out to partner with us," Convergent Dental CEO Michael Cataldo said in the statement.
Solea is a computer-aided micron laser used on hard and soft tissues. The product has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Last month, Convergent announced it had secured $9 million in additional capital to help bring the product to market.
