Dentsply Sirona World as a top-class virtual event: Excellent dentistry for a healthy smile


From 13 to 20 November 2020, the ultimate dental meeting, Dentsply Sirona World, took place as a virtual event. With more than 70 courses and six surgeries performed by specialists, dental professionals received an overview of the current state of the art in dentistry.

The opening event prepared the participants for an exciting programme. Don Casey, CEO of Dentsply Sirona, emphasised in his speech how essential dentistry is to general health. He encouraged the participants to take advantage of the wide range of educational training offered by Dentsply Sirona World to take their own practices to a new level.

The participants were also inspired by the non-dental world. In conversation with Dr Sameer Puri, vice president for education ad CDOCS, Simon Sinek, a world-famous author, management consultant, podcaster and TED talker, developed a true firework of motivation.

All sessions are offered on-demand, allowing participants to take advantage of all 70 courses at their leisure as many times as they would like through 20 November. Well-known speakers in 12 specialist areas shed light on exciting topics. These range from digital dentistry and extraoral/intraoral imaging to implant dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics, restoration, hygiene, and practice management.

The individual sessions offer different levels of training, from basic to intermediate and advanced. On top of that, participants can create their own training programme. Almost all courses offer the opportunity to earn continuing education points.

"I am very pleased to share my passion for hardware and software solutions with colleagues," said Dr Meena Barsoum, dentist from Chicago. "One focus will be, for example, on how we, as dentists, can use Teledentistry to provide virtual remote examinations and consultations."

Demonstration of smart workflow solutions for everyday practice

During the break-out sessions, the latest innovative solutions from Dentsply Sirona was presented. These include procedural workflows and the newest advancements in digital dentistry, such as:

Axeos, the extraoral X-ray unit with Dentsply Sirona's largest field-of-view 2D/3D X-ray system that delivers outstanding image quality at the low dose optimised exposure and offers greater patient comfort thanks to easy-to-use functions such as automatic height adjustment.

The Schick AE sensor is a convincing choice for intraoral X-rays due to its low dose exposure, optimised resolution, and improved display of anatomical structures for a reliable diagnosis.

The innovative filling concept Surefil one is a self-adhesive, robust restoration material that combines the simplicity of a glass ionomer with the stability of a conventional composite and also has good aesthetic properties.

Participants also had the chance to experience other innovative products, such as Primescan and SureSmile Aligners. Primescan, the latest generation of intraoral scanners, is an ideal starting point for various digital workflows that further improve dental treatment in restorative and implant dentistry as well as orthodontics. Pioneered by orthodontic specialists, SureSmile Aligner treatments are designed using advanced software to ensure the perfect fit and deliver the exact tooth movements needed to achieve great results in the shortest possible time.

Inspiring in style, excellent in quality, and first-class in results, the virtual Dentsply Sirona World 2020 brought this claim to life for its participants.
