Neil Jessop, Ultradent Products’ Vice President of Research and Development, recently spoke about the evolution of the VALOTM curing light. “There’s a sense of urgency that I constantly feel to keep an eye on what is right and on staying advanced. It’s not a free ride.” Ever innovating, in 2017 Ultradent Products released the VALOTM Grand curing light in Europe, which offers a 50% larger lens that measures a whopping 12 mm. This larger lens allows clinicians to cover and cure an entire restoration with the light’s highly efficient 385 nm–515 nm LEDs. The story behind the VALO light’s development, however, started more than two decades ago, in 1997.
