With great expectations and an even greater audience, Dentsply Sirona World, “The Ultimate Dental Meeting”, started yesterday in Las Vegas, Nevada. Thousands of guests from the dental world registered for one of the most fascinating events in dentistry. Dentsply Sirona offers a mixture of exciting discussions, clinical training units, vast networking opportunities, as well as first-class entertainment. Stars like the stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld and the multiple Grammy Award winner Zac Brown Band are taking part.
Dentsply Sirona World, the three-day conference featuring renowned speakers, brings together several thousand dentists, dental technicians, and opinion leaders from all over the dental world in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, where they can look forward to interesting further training sessions from 12 different education tracks. These range from topics such as digital dentistry to extraoral and intraoral imaging, implantology and orthodontics, to endodontics, restorations and hygiene. In addition, there are presentations on new products and solutions from Dentsply Sirona.
Every visitor can create a tailored conference plan that focuses on various course topics of interest, making Dentsply Sirona World an individual and personalized training event for all guests.
It is a consistent objective of Dentsply Sirona to help patients to have a healthy smile by supporting clinicians and technicians with healthy practices. It is about innovative solutions that make the difference in daily business. Dentsply Sirona offers continuous clinical education, that enables customers to make optimal use of the integrated solutions. And: There is a close relationship to customers. This is a strength of Dentsply Sirona; the company is innovative and successful above all due to the close cooperation with its partners in practices and laboratories.
“We value our customers’ trust and are very excited to welcome such a large number of dentists, dental technicians, dealers, partners, and practice teams to this event,” said Eric Bruno, Senior Vice President of the North America Regional Commercial Organization (RCO) at Dentsply Sirona. “Our innovations stem from the needs of our customers and speaking with them often gives us valuable insights. We work together with them to develop exactly those products and solutions that practices and labs need to simplify their day-to-day work and advance patient care.”
The variety of topics and products is very special and covers every need – from digital diagnostics with innovative X-ray devices in the Orthophos system and digital impressions with Primescan to the sophisticated, substance-preserving endodontic solutions WaveOne Gold Glider or TruNatomy and the digital manufacturing of restorations (CEREC) or orthodontic appliances (SureSmile).
Digital workflows: Simple and successful
The requirements for digital extraoral imaging are different for each practice. Dentsply Sirona’s answer to this are the three different Orthophos models with varying performance features. Thus every user – whether general or specialized dentist – has the perfect partner for his practice needs.
For more than 100 years, Dentsply Sirona has been committed to dentin preservation. The latest innovation TruNatomy offers a complete solution with a unique combination of features enabling efficient root canal treatment – even with complex canal systems – while removing dentin only where clinically needed. For General Practitioners WaveOne Gold continues to meet the highest standards for safe endodontic treatment.
Innovations in restorative dentistry
Dentsply Sirona is also responding to the needs of dentists with the development of consumables. With Palodent® 360, Dentsply Sirona presents an easy-to-use circumferential matrix system for Class II restorations. This pre-contoured matrix band provides predictable, tight contacts and natural tooth anatomy resulting in a natural and functional restoration that requires less finishing time and improved outcomes. Due to its integrated tightener/retainer, Palodent® 360 can be tightened with a twist of your fingers eliminating the need of a separate retainer or applicator, thereby also ensuring a clear view and allowing for versatile placement options.
New standards in the digital practice and orthodontics
Dentsply Sirona presents two key digital innovations for dental and orthodontic practices: the new Primescan intraoral scanner along with the fully digital workflow to produce aligners and IDB (Indirct Bonding) trays. Primescan boasts scanning technology that can take very precise scans quickly even in difficult situations. After the scan, the data from the digital impression are available for use in a wide range of applications, such as planning and producing transparent aligners for correcting misaligned teeth. The new SureSmile Aligners from Dentsply Sirona are planned and produced based on a digital impression, X-ray data and patient photographs. The process makes use of the new cloud-based SureSmile software. The combination of X-ray data, 3D model, and patient photos enables impressive esthetics and clinically achievable results.
Witty speakers and top-class entertainment
Dentsply Sirona World will be host to more than100 speakers representing the top tier of dentistry, including Dr. Karyn M. Halpern, Dr. Todd Ehrlich, Dr. Sameer Puri, Jasmin Haley, Dr. Tarun Agarwal, and Shannon Pace Brinker, among many other well-known names in the sector. Dentsply Sirona World is also called “The Ultimate Dental Meeting” due to its extraordinary entertainment program. One of this year’s highlights is the appearance of world-famous stand-up comedian, actor, scriptwriter, producer, and author Jerry Seinfeld, known particularly for the sitcom “Seinfeld.” On the evening of October 4, the multiple Grammy Award winner Zac Brown Band will rock the stage during a private concert, offering the participants a relaxing evening after an intensive day of high-class further training. The conference culminates in the pirate closing party, going under the motto of “Bucca(l)neers’ Bash” at Mandalay Bay Beach.
One thing will be clearly noticeable in Las Vegas: Clinical training is a key to success – for a healthy smile of patients and sustainable growth of practices and laboratories.
