Dentsply Sirona announced several new products and solutions at the DS World 2023 event, taking place in Las Vegas.

Dentsply Sirona World 2023 is taking place September 21-23 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas with this year’s theme being “The Future of Care.” 

Dentsply Sirona announced the addition of several new products and solutions to its product portfolio, and discussed their ongoing initiatives to address sustainability.

Adding to its comprehensive portfolio, Dentsply Sirona announces and showcases new products and solutions including:

  • Updates in DS Core’s Communication Canvas, Ordering and Viewer functionalities, which will allow, among other things, annotations on 2D x-ray, 2D media, and 2D CBCT slices, both freehand drawing and text; supports GDPR/HIPAA compliant file sharing with patients;  improved chat function for better accessibility from mobile devices and the capability to view even more data formats such as STL and PLY, making DS Core a powerful communication and collaboration tool for users of third-party IO-scanners. 
  • SureSmile Simulator: The SureSmile Simulator, powered by DS Core, empowers dental professionals to transform treatment conversations by showing patients the potential esthetic benefits and helping them make informed and timely decisions. Prior to treatment planning, the SureSmile Simulator assists dental professionals in evaluating each case. By measuring initial models and generating estimated treatment duration and complexity from the post-simulation results, clinicians can enter the planning phase with greater insight.
  • Ossix Agile: The pericardium membrane along with the Glymatrix sugar cross-linking properties of Ossix Agile provides longevity and biocompatibility, resulting in low host reactions and a long-lasting barrier effect.
  • Midwest Energo: A complete new electric handpiece series. With a significantly increased lifetime and equipped with a variety of innovations, this new line is designed to make daily treatment even easier and more pleasant.

Other existing and recently launched solutions such as Primescan, Primeprint, Primemill, Axeos, and OmniTaper EV Implant, the latest addition to the EV implants family, are also available for hands-on experiences and demonstrations. Participants can also take part in the DS Core Showcase, a new educational experience to help gain a true understanding of the power of the cloud solution in a realistic practice environment.

“This year’s theme, The Future of Care, is not just about imagining the possibilities of digital dentistry, but seeing these possibilities come to life with DS Core at the heart of our next wave of innovation in dental care,” said Andreas Frank, executive vice president and chief business officer at Dentsply Sirona. “At DS World, we aim to unite with dental professionals to help them move forward with confidence and advance our shared vision of transforming dentistry together.”

As part of the ongoing comprehensive sustainability strategy BEYOND, Dentsply Sirona hosted Moataz Kasrawy, DDS, and Dr Steven Mulligan, clinician, teacher and researcher based in the UK, and founding member of the FDI World Dental Federation’s Sustainability in Dentistry Task Team, and Dr Rainer Seemann, vice president of clinical affairs and workflows at Dentsply Sirona, as they lead a breakout session called, “5 Tips to Make Your Practice More Sustainable.”

“Education is vital to improve sustainability, increase awareness and identify actions that can lead to environmentally sustainable outcomes,” said  Mulligan. “Hosting a sustainability in dentistry session at DS World is another way in which Dentsply Sirona demonstrates its commitment to supporting dentists in their journey towards becoming more sustainable and I’m thrilled to collaborate in this endeavor.”

Dentsply Sirona also continues to uphold its ESG commitments during DS World 2023 by offsetting CO2 emissions generated from staff travel to and from the event, ensuring equal representation of women speakers on the main stage, offering sustainable catering options, and striving to achieve zero print marketing material use. Dentsply Sirona also has a sustainability booth that attendees can visit to learn more about the topic and find resources that enable them to take immediate action.

Attendees were also invited to join the company in supporting its partner Smile Train in setting a Guinness World Records title for the largest online album of smiles.
