As part of its sustainability strategy “Beyond: Taking action for a brighter world”, Dentsply Sirona has expanded its successful engagement for better oral health and healthy smiles, by joining the Platform for Better Oral Health in Europe as a corporate partner.
Today, Dentsply Sirona, the world’s largest manufacturer of professional dental products and technologies, announced its partnership with the Platform for Better Oral Health in Europe (The Platform). The Platform is a joint initiative of the Association for Dental Education in Europe (ADEE), the Council of European Chief Dental Officers (CECDO), the European Association of Dental Public Health (EADPH), the Oral Health Foundation and the Pan-European Region of the International Association for Dental Research (PER-IADR), and a wide range of Associate Members. Its goal is to improve oral health and the prevention of oral diseases – as well as address oral health inequalities and challenges, especially among vulnerable populations like children and adolescents, the elderly, and those with special needs.
With this partnership, Dentsply Sirona will further expand its role in enhancing awareness around the importance of better oral health and the critical role oral health plays in improving every person’s overall health. The company believes that its commitment towards a high quality, solution based, pandemic-resilient, and digitally driven oral health system is further amplified by the joint work of the Platform, its members, and its corporate partners.
“We are pleased to welcome Dentsply Sirona as our new corporate partner. This new partnership will support our mission to promote better oral health for all in Europe” says Professor Georgios Tsakos, Chair of the Platform.
“At Dentsply Sirona, we believe that everyone, no matter their circumstances, age or location, deserves access to oral health care and it is part of our sustainability strategy to increase access to high quality oral health.” says Jorge M. Gomez, Chief Financial Officer and Head of the Dentsply Sirona Sustainability Program. “Partnering with The Platform and its members will allow our efforts in this field to have even more impact as we create a common European approach towards improved oral health, education and access to care in Europe”.
Another way in which Dentsply Sirona has promoted awareness of oral health as a key factor in living a longer healthier life was by supporting World Oral Health Day 2022 (WOHD), which was celebrated on March 20th. Dentsply Sirona also sponsored the WOHD best branded photo award, which celebrates people who got the best use out of the World Oral Health Day brand in a single snapshot, while engaging and inspiring others to look after their oral health. The award winners will be revealed in June 2022 by FDI World Dental Federation, the organizers of World Oral Health Day.
