Avant Dental Handpiece Concept

Bronze
2001

This team went beyond innovations in usability and design to develop a patented process for manufacturing this one-piece plastic dental drill. At a price that is less than one quarter that of traditional metal handpieces, this high-performance drill lowers cost of ownership and operation and subsequently healthcare costs. The plastic model is built to last the same amount of time as a metal drill but is meant to be thrown away and replaced instead of prolonging the life through expensive servicing.
