Over the course of the 3-day event, speakers will do a deep dive on CEREC as well as inLab, presenting their solutions and strategies and demonstrating CEREC. Presentations will cover all areas of dentistry and will include scientific research and clinical cases, from simple to full oral reconstructions, digital orthodontic treatments, and sleep apnea devices. 

The event will also mark the 35th anniversary of CEREC. As the company puts it, “The market launch of CEREC in 1985 marked the beginning of digitalization in dentistry. Dentsply Sirona was the first company in the world to recognize the groundbreaking importance of CAD/CAM technology for modern dental treatment and to make it available to the dental practice.” 

Dr Alexander Völcker, group vice president CAD/CAM at Dentsply Sirona: “This year we are celebrating the 35th anniversary of CEREC – a development that is backed by many important contributors, such as employees of research and development departments, clinical users, beta testers and simply enthusiasts of the latest technologies. The CEREC community is an important part of this, with members constantly learning and bringing in new ideas to optimize the system. Legends takes this endeavor to a new level, which is especially important in these unstable and difficult times when we should stay connected and continue to share knowledge and experience.”
