Dentsply Sirona is launching a new DS Academy Campus to offer clinical, technical, and product education to a wider audience.

Dentsply Sirona is launching a new DS Academy Campus as an additional touch point to engage with the DS Academy clinical, technical, and product education.

The DS Campus will focus on offering high-quality educational content on innovative trends and topics in digital dentistry. From digital aligner workflows to integrating artificial intelligence into the dental practice, Dentsply Sirona aims to build its DS Academy community and invites dental professionals worldwide to learn and develop themselves and their practice.

Many of the on-demand courses and webinars are eligible for Continuing Education (CE) credits in certain locales.

Featured on the DS Campus is a series of webinars on major topics in digital dentistry, implants, and clear aligners. Michael Parchewsky, DMD, from Calgary, Canada will give his live webinar on, “Artificial Intelligence: From Oral Health to Systemic Health; How AI Can Help Support Dentistry.” The webinar takes place on October 26, 2023.

“Artificial Intelligence has made a lot of news recently as technology develops rapidly. But how will this impact my work as a clinician? How can I leverage the power of AI systems to benefit my practice and my patients?,” said Parchewsky. “I am excited for the opportunity to present my thoughts and have a lively discussion with the online audience in October.”

The second webinar, which will take place on November 15, 2023, features Sara Mahmood, DDS, FAGD, from Dallas, Texas, discussing “Predictable Results with Clear Aligner Therapy”. Additional webinars will take place monthly, presenting a range of relevant topics within implant and orthodontic dentistry presented by a distinguished expert speaker.

DS Academy provides almost a half a million clinical education and training engagements to dental professionals each year. The education is offered in all fields of dentistry, from diagnosis and treatment planning to endodontics, implants and aligners. Dental practitioners are educated every day at one of 55 education centers in 33 countries. The centers offer training in modern techniques, digital workflows, and exposure to innovative developments in dentistry.

To meet a need for online education, DS Academy continues to expand its library of online clinical education courses. The company is taking its digital educational offerings a step further by creating the DS Academy Campus hosted by Dental Tribune International.

“Clinical education is paramount for professional development and for ensuring the best care for patients. As digitalization transforms workflows and dental practices, Dentsply Sirona wants to ensure that learning new skills and techniques, is as convenient as possible, and in an engaging way through the DS Campus,” said Erania Brackett, senior vice president, orthodontic aligner solutions and customer experience. “The live webinars feature a carefully curated lineup of experts who will delve into important topics starting with one that’s on everyone’s mind: Artificial Intelligence.”
