On August 5th, 2012, Dr. Colonna was awarded the “Inventor of the Year”for the invention of the PIPS™ technology, that uses laser photons, to clean and completely remove biofilm from root canal systems by the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry (WCMID). Dr. Colonna is honored, but would like to share this award with Dr. Enrico DiVito of the Arizona Center for Laser Dentistry, who together, discovered and patented this process with their entire research team! This is Dr. Colonna’s second honor from the WCMID. His first, in 2003, was for “Clinician of the Year”! Congratulations to both Drs.!
