Dentsply Sirona collaborations
Dentsply Sirona states that it recognises its responsibility to the environment and that it is focused on ways to become a more sustainable business through investment and innovation. In this spirit, Dentsply Sirona has announced its participation as a founding partner in the FDI’s Sustainability in Dentistry initiative.
The FDI’s Sustainability in Dentistry project was established to motivate and inspire commitment to reduce the collective CO2 footprint of dentistry, targeting practitioners, patients, and the supply chain itself. Don Casey, CEO of Dentsply Sirona, says: “At Dentsply Sirona, we are incredibly proud to be a founding member of the new cross-sector Sustainability in Dentistry partnership with the FDI. Our mission as a company is to improve oral health worldwide and sustainability is core to our strategy”. The company is also collaborating with 3Shape, which produces 3D scanners and CAD/CAM software. The two organisations state that they have agreed to work on multiple strategic opportunities in order to improve digital dentistry and oral health. In the immediate term, the partnership will focus on a collaboration for better access of TRIOS users to SureSmile Clear Aligners.
Smart Integration Award
The company is also inviting female dental experts to apply for this year’s Smart Integration Award. Dentsply Sirona states that the competition underlines its commitment to the advancement of women in dentistry by showcasing and honouring their novel treatment concepts and ideas for the future.
