Nobel Biocare Forms Strategic Partnership

Zurich, Switzerland–Nobel Biocare, a leader in innovative aesthetic dental solutions, and New York University College of Dentistry, the largest dental school in the United States, will cooperate to integrate a dental implant therapy and aesthetic dentistry curriculum into all four years of the NYU predoctoral dental education program.

Heliane Canepa, President and CEO of Nobel Biocare says, “Today, many general practitioners are not empowered to offer their patients the high esthetic and functional benefits of implant technology. We are extremely excited to cooperate with NYU to develop a curriculum that will enable future dentists to meet the growing patient demands in esthetic dentistry.”

Nobel Biocare will donate US$5-million over five years to be used to integrate dental implant therapy into the overall predoctoral education of the general dentist, as well as to support additional areas, including research, dental esthetics, and ceramics.
