SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 2, 2008

Dentalcompare, a buyer's guide for dental professionals, recently announced the appointment of Gail Weisman as Editor in Chief.

Hired for her award-winning reputation and wealth of contacts in the industry, Weisman joins Dentalcompare after an illustrious 31-year career at Dental Products Report (DPR), working specifically as Editor in Chief since 1997. For the past 20 years, Weisman has also served as Senior Editor for DPR's sister print publications, Dental Products Report Europe, Dental Lab Products, Modern Hygienist, and as a contributor to DPR's online resource, These roles position Weisman to be a valuable asset to Dentalcompare as the company manages its expansive growth.

Weisman has received awards for journalistic excellence from the American Society of Business Publication Editors and American Business Media, as well as special recognition from both the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry and the Special Care Dentistry Association for ongoing promotion of their respective initiatives. Additionally, Weisman was a roundtable moderator at the inaugural Digital Radiography Congress and a featured speaker at the annual meeting of the Cal-Lab Group.

John Schwartz, General Manager of Dentalcompare, is thrilled to have Weisman join the team. "Gail's reputation, credibility and relationships in the dental community make her an outstanding fit for Dentalcompare as we continue on our path to be the industry's most reliable and up-to-date source of dental product news and information," said Schwartz.

Weisman is equally excited for this new phase in her career. As a representative of the leading unbiased print publication for dentists, I had the privilege of listening to and addressing the needs of both the manufacturing community and the end user— the practitioner— and to be witness the incredible innovation boom in technology, materials, and clinical procedures, particularly over the past five years," said Weisman. "This unique opportunity has afforded me a valuable perspective that I am eager, proud, and humbled to bring to Dentalcompare— the next generation vehicle for helping dentists choose products wisely and enhance patient care," she added.

"There is no doubt that Gail will help us achieve our goal of providing the best dental product and practice information, not just on the internet, but anywhere," said Editorial Director, Steve Diogo. "I am thrilled to have her talent, insight and experience on our team."
