GLO Science, Benco Dental Announce Strategic Partnership

PITTSTON, PA--(Marketwired - April 21, 2016) - GLO Science of New York City and Benco Dental of Pittston, Pa., announce today that the two companies will broaden their strategic partnership. Benco Dental has been distributing the Edison Award™-winning teeth whitening products since October, 2015, and will now conduct all direct sales of the GLO Science product line.

GLO Science was founded in 2011 by Dr. Jonathan B. Levine, visionary product inventor, clinical researcher, published author and prosthodontist, and Stacey J. Levine, marketing brand design innovator. Holding 11 patents and 16 patents pending in oral care, GLO is responsible for modernizing the dental practice and the way patients approach oral health and whiten their teeth. Today, the company presents the latest breakthrough in professional teeth whitening with its in-office and take home whitening systems. Included is the newly added Pro White to-go system: no strips, no trays, no sensitivity, and professional strength H202.

"At GLO Science we are striving to change the way patients and dental professionals think about the health and beauty of the smile as smile management becomes part of a daily health and beauty routine," Dr. Jonathan B. Levine, GLO Science co-founder said.

"We introduce disruptive innovation that addresses existing compromises, backed by science and accelerated by strategic partnerships to help transform the dental practice."

Over the past decade, Benco Dental has been the nation's fastest growing dental distributor, now servicing more than 35,000 dentists and dental laboratories. Founded in 1930, Benco Dental is the largest privately owned dental distribution company in the United States, offering a full array of supplies, equipment and services to dentists across the nation.

"The GLO Science organization is excited to partner with the Benco team to now offer our breakthrough patient solutions to dentists nationwide -- providing faster and better teeth whitening with little to no sensitivity," Thomas Pinnau, GLO Science CEO said.

Members of the GLO Science team and Stacey Levine, co-founder, were recently among the more than 800 in attendance at the dental distributor's annual sales forum, hosted in Dallas, Texas March 2-5. There, 225 manufacturer representatives and Success Partners, representing more than 80 companies, presented new technologies, products and services at the Benco Sales Forum vendor fair.

"The experience we had at the 2016 Benco national sales meeting in Dallas validated our decision for this partnership. We had great synergy and excitement to bring this to life," Stacey Levine, GLO Science co-founder said. "The Benco sales and leadership teams were passionate, engaged, and shared our core values in introducing the best to their practices!"

About GLO Science

GLO Science is dedicated to bringing patients the most intelligent advances in oral care and changing the way consumers and dental professionals alike think about the health and beauty of their smiles.

Distributed solely through licensed dentists, GLO Science's Professional Line employs the revolutionary G.L.O. (Guided Light Optic) technology to deliver high-impact whitening with dramatic results. This technology has revolutionized whitening by addressing the compromises of other in-office whitening systems on the market, eliminating lights that cause painful zingers, and replacing the old technology of painful messy tray and gels. The measured heat and light are delivered in a "closed system" patented mouthpiece, which keeps the whitening oxygen from escaping the tooth surface. The in-office treatment takes 32 minutes, and with each eight-minute application the whitening gel gets activated and accelerated. The results are faster, more efficient, and long-lasting whitening without the sensitivity. Easy to use, with high patient compliance, GLO Science guarantees patients a bright, white smile.

For take-home whitening, GLO is paired with innovative, patented, whitening gel G-Vials, which contain a minty fresh, stay-put formula that adheres to teeth while protecting gums, and other sensitive soft tissues in the mouth, from exposure.

Clinical studies have shown that patients achieve 8+ tooth shades of improvement, depending on starting shade, and that 0% of patients who have used GLO experienced the painful zingers commonly associated with other professional teeth whitening procedures. The GLO Teeth Whitening Device, Everyday GLO Whitening Maintenance Pen, and GLO Solo G-Vials have each received a prestigious Edison Award™ for innovation in personal care.
