Albert Kim is VP of Sales & Marketing at SOTA Imaging. Dustin Johnson is Director of Engineering at SOTA Imaging.
This week, Dr. Glenn Vo and Jim sat down with Dustin Johnson, Director of Engineering at SOTA Imaging, and Albert Kim, SOTA’s VP of Sales & Marketing, to talk all about recent dental questions.
Albert and Dustin might be new to the group—but they’re quickly gaining a reputation. And rightfully so! These guys know all about sales, but their products and services almost make their jobs easy!
Fun fact: It’s a misconception that SOTA is a Japanese word; it actually stands for “State of the Art.” SOTA Imaging is an American-based company that’s run a few rodeos—they’ve been around for around 30 years!
SOTA has designed all sorts of optics for various industries—Medical, Aerospace, etc.—since 1993. About ten years ago, SOTA segued into dentistry.
With the production of SOTA’s proprietary cameras such as the Claris i310, one of the first USB intraoral cameras on the market, and the award-winning Claris i4D, SOTA has developed the technology—from optics to ergonomics—to provide dental practitioners with the most advanced intraoral camera to date: the Claris i5HD Intraoral Camera.
In this week’s episode, you’ll be hearing all about their all-new all-aluminum model: the Claris i5HD Intraoral Camera.
If you aren’t already familiar with the Claris i5HD Intraoral Camera, it’s a beaut with an adjustable focus that trumps its competition. There’s nothing cheap or plastic about it, with industrial-level technology that’ll last years and years.
In fact, the Claris camera can get you down to 2mm away from the surface of whatever you’re trying to take a picture of.
Another big highlight for this week’s episode was Dustin and Albert’s showcasing of SOTA Imaging’s fully-integrated Clio Digital X-Ray sensors: the Clio Prime and Clio Pedo sensors.
These puppies are produced in a foundry where they have to produce silicon wafers—they’re rare, with only so many in the world. And, to add a cherry on top, these sensors are upgraded versions of other high-end dental technology (such as the Dexis Platinum).
With such sophisticated technology, it should come as no surprise that both of these sensors are equipped with next-gen CMOS fiber optic technology with Csl Scintillators. This allows SOTA to provide dental practices far and wide with the largest active area plates in the industry.
The nuances of the all-new all-aluminum Claris i5HD Intraoral Camera and why—according to Dustin—it’s like comparing a Tesla to a Toyota Yaris.
Hint: both he and Dr. Glenn Vo agree that might be “too generous” of a reference…
So… What comparison did they settle on?
What’s the one simple trick you can use to improve your imaging quality, according to Dustin?
How might the Claris i5HD Intraoral Camera camera pay for itself?
How is SOTA different from other imaging software companies in the market?
What are some of the new features you’ve never seen before?
Glenn Vo wants to let you know that this camera is top-of-the-line for a middle-of-the-pack price. But you can count on a killer Nifty Thrifty deal to cut down this already-affordable price tag.
In fact, Albert said the SOTA team has arranged an “aggressively” good deal for the Nifty Thrifty community—but it’s a bit of a (popular) emergency: the deal only stands until the end of this year (December 31st, 2021)!
FREE 5-year warranty with NO HIDDEN FEES!
FREE software if you buy the sensors and sign up for a program called SOTA Care (different from SOTA Cloud) that only costs $49 a month.
With a price like that, it’ll make up for itself within a matter of months!
