On March 20, an important topic is in the spotlight worldwide: World Oral Health Day, which this year is themed “Be proud of your mouth.” The day aims to raise awareness of oral health as a key factor in living a longer, healthier life. Dentsply Sirona, as the world’s largest manufacturer of professional dental products and technologies, wants to demonstrate on this day that it is focusing its energies on innovative product solutions and clinical education for dental professionals. The goal of these efforts is to empower dental professionals to give patients a healthy smile.

7,300, 80, and 1 million – these figures represent Dentsply Sirona’s comprehensive commitment to clinical education for dental professionals. Last year, almost 7,300 courses (mainly online) were held in 80 countries with a total of more than one million participants. Using educational technology, Dentsply Sirona more than doubled the number of dental professionals participating in clinical education as compared to those in 2019. In addition, the on-demand CE library has grown to more than 180 courses as dentists are using this format more and more. ” Dentsply Sirona is committed to empowering dental professionals through innovation and education. These continuing education courses support dentists and team members in their daily work to provide the best possible care to their patients,” said Dr. Terri Dolan, Vice President Chief Clinical Officer at Dentsply Sirona. “In addition to appreciating timely information about infection prevention and the safe delivery of dental care, feedback indicates a strong commitment to enhancing their knowledge and skills using cutting-edge technology as they care for their patients.”

Aligner treatment with a completely digital workflow

Around the globe dentists and team members participated in clinical education on endodontics, implant and restorative dentistry and digital technologies. We have also seen an increased interest in clinical education in orthodontic treatment for patients who want to have their teeth corrected with clear aligners. SureSmile brings precision, ease of use, control and flexibility to the clinician and delivers comfort and predictable outcomes to their patients. With over 20 years of dedicated research in Orthodontics, the clinical expertise and technical skills of SureSmile technicians in the SureSmile Digital Lab as well as in-practice support, Dentsply Sirona can support clinicians through all phases of aligner treatments. SureSmile is integrated into the workflows of other Dentsply Sirona digital products, intraoral scanners and imaging devices. The company’s digital products complement each other and work together seamlessly.

“I specialize in esthetic dentistry in my digitally equipped practice,” said Dr. Shivi Gupta, a dentist from San Diego, California, and a Key Opinion Leader that works with Dentsply Sirona. “SureSmile is a very attractive concept for me because the digital workflow with my CBCT and Primescan for digital impression is really simple. Since it is constantly being advanced by Dentsply Sirona, it is only natural for me to continue my education even in spite of the conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic so that I can keep offering my patients the best possible dental treatment.”

Axeos – an award-winning dental X-ray solution

Axeos, the latest top-of-the-line, versatile 2D/3D imaging solution by Dentsply Sirona, offers both a comfortable experience for patients and dentists and at the same time a growth engine for practices across various workflows. The exceptional image quality and a seamless experience that connects technology and practice team together aid in what matters most – providing the best possible care to patients. From a focused Field of View (Ø5 x 5.5 cm) for endodontic cases up to a large FoV (Ø17 x 13 cm) that covers complete dentition, including both temporomandibular joints (TMJ), Axeos offers a broad range of treatments.

Axeos offers three core benefits for any practice: clinical confidence, smart connectivity with integrated solutions and treatment planning, and an exceptional user and patient experience. “Dentsply Sirona continues to lead the dental industry through its commitment to innovation, clinical education, and as a reliable partner to dentists, dental hygienists and dental team members, as well as dental technicians,” Dr. Terri Dolan summed up.
