GIBBSTOWN, N.J. – January 2017 – Keystone Industries’ Gelato Prophy Paste has been named the Top Prophy Paste in the Hygiene category of The Dental Advisor’s 2017 Product Awards, an award Keystone has now won from the respected publication five times consecutively.
In the clinical research conducted on Gelato, 35 consultants used the product over 2,500 times and came to an overall 91-percent clinical rating. Among the consultants, 63-percent said they would switch to Gelato Prophy Paste, and 80-percent said they would recommend it to dental professionals.
Consultants involved in the clinical testing also remarked that Gelato Prophy Paste “does not splatter”, “is easy to rinse”, and “cups are color-coded and easy to open”.
The annual Product Awards compiled by The Dental Advisor are one of the most respected awards to receive in the dental industry due to their in-depth research and analysis to recognize the highest-quality products on the market. Because the prophy paste market is flooded with many superb products, The Dental Advisor’s editorial board must debate, discuss and vote on a product that fits their criteria for innovation, quality and excellence every year. This is where Gelato separates itself as the top paste, where its ++++½ rating and multiple medals makes it a standout-product, especially because it’s one of few products to win this many times consecutively.
Gelato Prophy Paste was created and designed with dental hygienists’ needs in mind. The main goal of the product is to allow easy use for the dental hygienist with great results and to give the patient a satisfying experience. This is made possible by being able to apply Gelato smoothly without any splatter, all while coming in six delicious flavors including pina colada, bubble gum, cherry, mint, raspberry, and orange sherbet.
The paste comes packaged in 200-count boxes of single-use cups for convenient use and to eliminate cross-contamination. Gelato is also available in four different grits: fine, medium, coarse and x-coarse. More buying options are available as well, such as 6-ounce (exports only) and 12-ounce jars.
“Winning this award once was a great feeling, and three times was even better. Now, as we look at our fifth win, it’s not only incredible for Keystone, but also for hygienists everywhere using Gelato,” said Derek Keene, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development. “We take great pride in being able to offer the best dollar value on our prophy paste even after its won such prestigious awards. It really begs us to ask those who haven’t tried it the question, ‘Why not?’,” said Keene.
