Dentsply Sirona funds cleft surgeries

October 1 was World Smile Day – a day devoted to smiles and acts of kindness all over the globe. In anticipation of World Smile Day, Dentsply Sirona asked participants at this year’s Dentsply Sirona World in Las Vegas to join them in supporting Smile Train to help change the lives of children born with clefts. Dentsply Sirona states that in just three days the company and its partners came together to fund cleft surgeries for hundreds of children around the world.

Dentsply Sirona states that it is taking action to support Smile Train’s work with the launch of a five-year renewable partnership aimed at having a lasting, long-term, positive impact. According to Dentsply Sirona, it has committed to donating $5,000,000 to Smile Train through the partnership. According to the company, Smile Train’s local medical professionals are already leveraging digital technologies such as the company’s Primescan intraoral scanners and developing innovative protocols that minimise the travel required by patients and their families to improve access to care.

Dentsply Sirona states that its intraoral scanner Primescan is a good starting point for all key digital workflows that can assist in further improving dental treatment in restorative dentistry, orthodontics and implantology. According to the company, digital impression with Primescan has now been validated for full-arch fixed implant restorations with Atlantis suprastructures.
