Innovations, trends, and high-caliber specialist presentations – Dentsply Sirona World 2019 brought together thousands of dentists, dental technicians, and dental experts in Las Vegas (Nevada, USA). From October 3 to 5, the sold-out “Ultimate Dental Meeting” was very successful with a superlative program. Stars like stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld and multiple Grammy Award winner Zac Brown Band brought special moments to life.
Dentsply Sirona World in Las Vegas is an absolute highlight of the dental industry, and this year was sold out weeks before the event. The successful concept also impressed thousands of participants – with a unique mix of clinical training units, presentations by more than 100 renowned dental experts, an inspiring exchange between colleagues, and a first-class entertainment program.
One of the absolute highlights was the live treatments, which were streamed into the auditorium. For instance, Dr. Tarun Agarwal performed a full arch restoration using the Smartfix concept with the new Astra Tech Implant EV, Dr. Erin Elliot presented a treatment for obstructive sleep apnea, Dr. Meena Barsoum shared an orthodontic session with SureSmile with the audience.
The live treatments were frequently used as an opportunity for discussions about the topics that practitioners deal with in their practice routines. “It is precisely these interactions that are crucial to us,” said Don Casey, Chief Executive Officer of Dentsply Sirona. “We consistently direct our innovations to what our customers need in practices and labs. This is why we focus on entire workflows and solutions that integrate seamlessly with one another. Underlying these solutions is our commitment to R&D, into which we are investing more than 150 million US dollars this year alone. Over the past several years we invested close to one billion dollars – more than any other company in the dental industry.”
Specialist training: Personal and intensive
The advanced training program offered a broad overview with more than 100 intensive workshops on a comprehensive range of topics and lectures in twelve different areas, such as implant dentistry, laboratory and hygiene, and presentations of new products and solutions by Dentsply Sirona. On the podium, dentists such as Dr. Karyn M. Halpern, Dr. Todd Ehrlich, Dr. Sameer Puri, Jasmin Haley, Dr. Tarun Agarwal, and Shannon Pace Brinker, as well as many other well-known names of the industry, spoke about trends and developments.
For Dentsply Sirona it is certain: Continuous, professional clinical education is a factor to success for practices and laboratories. In addition, innovative product solutions and a close relationship with customers are part of the common goal which is bringing healthy smiles to more people through happy and healthy practices.
Astra Tech Implant System: The development continues
Dentsply Sirona World proved again this year to be an excellent platform for getting first hand knowledge of new products and solutions. The new Astra Tech Implant EV is a further development of the Astra Tech Implant System, one of the best-documented implant systems on the market. The modified implant design brings significant improvements: The apical implant thread ensures that the desired primary stability can be achieved. Additionally, the handling for inserting the implant has been simplified. This innovation will be available starting October 2019 in the North American market and from the beginning of 2020 in Europe.
Digital, validated and successful workflows
Optimal X-ray diagnostics is the basis for almost all indications. With the three different Orthophos models with varying features, every user – whether general or specialized dentist – can use the latest X-ray technology for the specific needs of his or her practice. In the future, images created with the Orthophos S 3D and Orthophos SL 3D devices can also be used to plan treatment with SureSmile aligners. In conjunction with an optical scan, they were validated for use in the SureSmile Aligner and SureSmile Ortho software.
At the cutting edge of hygiene
Dentsply Sirona World focused extensively on this topic again this year with its own hygiene track, including presentations by Linda Harvey, Dr. Mia Geisinger, and Katrina Sanders. When it comes to hygiene, Dentsply Sirona offers a comprehensive product range that greatly simplifies treatment for patients and hygiene assistants. For example, the Nupro Freedom cordless prophylaxis handpiece allows uncomplicated and thorough tooth polishing with easy intraoral access and no annoying cables.
The ultrasonic scaling system of the Cavitron 300 series is the latest member of the Cavitron system family. The exclusive Steri-Mate 360 rotating handpiece allows easy handling without stopping, adjusting, and laboriously turning the ultrasonic probe during scaling treatment. The new digital operating system generates less heat and requires less water for improved patient comfort.
This year’s highlights: Jerry Seinfeld and Zac Brown Band
The first-class entertainment program has made Dentsply Sirona World an industry event that continues to thrill dental experts and dentists. This year, Dentsply Sirona surprised the participants with two special highlights. On the first evening, the world-renowned standup comedian, actor, screenwriter, producer, and author Jerry Seinfeld welcomed the audience to the evening event in the Mandala Bay Resort and Casino. After an intensive day of advanced training, another highlight awaited the participants on Friday evening: Multiple Grammy Award-winning Zac Brown Band rocked the stage in a private concert.
As Dentsply Sirona World has ended, planning for the next one begins: Next year the successful congress will take place in Las Vegas again, this time at the Caesars Forum, October 1-3.
