The new state-of-the-art dental facility welcomed more than 10,000 guests in its first full year of operation.
Dentsply Sirona is proud to announce its Charlotte-based Dentsply Sirona Academy welcomed more than 10,000 guests through its doors in 2019.
In its first full year of operation the 28,525 sq. ft. state-of-theart training facility held nearly 500 events, including continuing education sessions, training, customer meetings and study clubs.
“This is an incredible achievement,” said VP of Marketing Ingo Zimmer. “The clinical affairs team worked tirelessly to make sure those thousands of guests each enjoyed their experience and left understanding just how committed Dentsply Sirona is to empowering dental professionals through innovation and education.”
Opening late May 2018, the Dentsply Sirona Academy features the most advanced and proven dental product solutions in a clinical setting. The space includes multiple classrooms, a 288seat auditorium, seven fully outfitted operatories and two simulation labs. It offers a wide variety of clinical and technical courses, including hands-on teaching, live lectures and ondemand webinars.
“This academy is the embodiment of our educational philosophy,” said Clinical Affairs Director Nick Harrison. “Not only is it a place where dental professionals can hear and see our end-to-end solutions through our procedures and workflows, but it’s a place they can actually experience them hands-on.”
Dentsply Sirona offers a special thank you for this accomplishment to their education partners, Spear Education and CEREC Doctors, as well as the incredible promotion from their supporting dental professionals and customers.
The academy is finished with its course offerings for the year but will start back up in early January 2020. For more information on the Dentsply Sirona Academy and its course offerings, please visit https://academy.dentsplysirona.com/enus.
