Recently, Dentsply and Sirona merged to form Dentsply Sirona, York, Pa. Now, the company is introducing its new Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics division, which includes Dentsply GAC and Dentsply Raintree Essix.

According to the company, the creation of Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics will allow it to better leverage its infrastructure to strengthen both businesses and product lines. Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics can tap into an R&D team of more than 70 professionals, a state-of-the-art research, development, and manufacturing campus in Sarasota, Fla, and an educational platform with affiliations in over 40 of the top dental programs around the world.

The company maintains that the new division will continue to bring GAC and Raintree Essix customers the service they are used to. “It’s very important that our customers know their day-to-day experience and interaction with the Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics team will remain the same,” says Bradford Clatt, vice president, orthodontics. “We are still very much two businesses aligning under one strategic business unit to leverage our assets across our product lines at a level that no other company in the orthodontic space can match.”
