Dentsply Sirona kicked off the 3-day event with its most notable product and corporate announcements of the year. The theme of DS World 2021 was to “connect,” focused on the human connection of smiles and coming together again after more than a year apart, but also the power of the connected workflows of Dentsply Sirona.
