Dentsply Sirona World 2022 in Las Vegas inspired over 4500 attendees during the three-day event. DS World featured extraordinary entertainment, industry-leading clinical education courses, and a great networking opportunity for the dental industry. “The energy was electrifying! You could feel the excitement and passion to learn, connect, engage, and work together to transform dentistry and improve oral health,” said Andrew Robinson, Senior Vice President, North America Regional Commercial Organization & Chief Digital Officer of Dentsply Sirona.
DS World attendees were treated to performances by the award-winning band Journey, best known for their iconic hit “Don’t Stop Believin’,” and legendary comedian David Spade. A highlight of the weekend was Dr. Farhad Boltchi’s live simulcast implant surgery. Dr. Boltchi repaired a fractured tooth during the live implant surgery using Ossix bone grafting material, a Primeprint 3D printed surgical guide, CEREC Guide 3, for placement of the DS PrimeTaper Implant System, and finally a CEREC-milled temporary restoration – all in one sitting. Over 100 clinical education sessions were attended, focusing on a wide range of topics, which included Digital Workflows, Practice Management, Clear Aligners and more. Sustainability was a new topic to DS World this year, with break out sessions that centered on what sustainability means for dentistry and what actions dentists can take to create a more sustainable business. Dentsply Sirona also launched a Sustainability Educational Curriculum to empower dentists on their sustainability journey.
