CHARLOTTE, N.C., US: Global dental industry leader Dentsply Sirona has announced that it will be taking a number of steps to improve digital workflows for dentists, dental laboratories and patients across the world. Among these steps are a new partnership with Google Cloud and the launch of a new medical-grade 3D-printing solution. The company has invited dental professionals to participate in a virtual event on 4 March to find out more about these developments.

The collaboration with Google Cloud will feature a suite of new digital dentistry solutions that, according to Dentsply Sirona, will help both dentists and dental laboratories regardless of whether they are just starting their digital journeys or have some experience under their belt. The solutions will be based on six key principles, which include the provision of high-quality 3D dental imagery visualisation, the creation of digital workflows that allow for fast and easy data sharing between dental practitioners and laboratories, and the maintenance of stringent data protection and security standards.

Christian Martin, managing director of the Alps region at Google Cloud, noted in a press release: “Dentsply Sirona is transforming the dental industry. At Google Cloud we believe that we have the right expertise, capabilities and services to strongly support Dentsply Sirona in its vision for the future of oral healthcare.”

“This exciting collaboration will allow us to deliver on our promise: empowering millions of customers by proudly creating innovative solutions for healthy smiles,” said Don Casey, Dentsply Sirona CEO. Both Casey and Urs Hölzle, senior vice president of engineering at Google, will be interviewed as part of the event taking place on 4 March.

Primeprint: An advance in automated printing

Dentsply Sirona will also launch Primeprint, a 3D-printing system for dental practices and laboratories, at the online event. The company stated that Primeprint, which is optimised for dental applications, possesses a high level of automation that allows it to run the entire printing process and deliver accurate, reproducible results using biocompatible dental materials.

“Dentsply Sirona has always been a pioneer in digital dentistry,” Casey further commented in the press release.

He added: “Whether it was virtually inventing dental imaging, creating intra-oral scanning or creating single-visit dentistry, Dentsply Sirona has led the way. Starting with the announcements today, Dentsply Sirona will again look to transform dentistry with new devices and AI-supported solutions and services.”

Editorial note:

The virtual event, titled “The future of digital dentistry from Google Cloud and Dentsply Sirona”, will be held online on 4 March at 4 p.m. CET/10 a.m. EST. More information is available here.
