Dentsply Sirona Train-the-Trainer event for integrated solutions in dentistry

The new year began with a top-class meeting of experts. From January 8 to 13, 2017, Dentsply Sirona invited selected experts in the dental industry to Bensheim and Hamburg to discuss integrated solutions and demonstrate their implementation in clinical cases. The program included numerous presentations and a trip to Hamburg-Eppendorf University Medical Center.

Bensheim/Salzburg. Many opinion leaders in the dental industry from India, Ukraine, South Africa, Romania, Germany and Turkey accepted the invitation from Dentsply Sirona to participate in the exclusive one-week Train-the-Trainer event. For one week, Dentsply Sirona held presentations and workshops on integrated solutions that link products from different disciplines. Many lively and interesting discussions ensued. The participants experienced a varied, practical and exclusive program as well as entertaining evening events.

Michael Buzanich, Regional Sales Manager at Dentsply Sirona, and Wassilios Intzes, Sales Manager Imaging at Dentsply Sirona, enjoyed this opportunity to speak with experienced users: "Working together with experts is very important for us. It is the basis of our innovative strength and never fails to inspire us."

Experiencing the advantages of integrated processes live

The SICAT solutions were a comprehensive part of the program. Sicat can be used to digitize processes and thus make treatment safer and more predictable. This includes, for example, the possibility of having surgical guides for implantation produced with 3D images and digital impressions. Additionally, Sicat Air allows a 3D analysis of the upper airways and gives the option to order therapeutic appliances for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) entirely digitally. The dentists showed great interest in endodontics – the functions of the 3D Endo software were demonstrated based on a clinical case. Detailed data from the Orthophos SL 3D allow treatment to be planned precisely using CBCT-based software for the first time. This gives practitioners even greater certainty and generates confidence in patients. A hands-on course in 3D Endo software completed the presentation and allowed the participants to experience first-hand the added value of this integrated workflow.

In addition, a tour of the Bensheim production halls provided comprehensive insight into the company's production and product portfolio. "Seeing how the products are manufactured and holding the individual parts in your hand – that makes a big impression on visitors," said Wassilios Intzes. That also applied to the demonstration of the SiroLaser Blue – the laser with the blue light covers many indications and can be used for surgery, periodontology, endodontics and soft laser therapy.

Live demonstrations in clinics and practices

The participants traveled to Hamburg for the second part of the event. At Hamburg-Eppendorf University Medical Center, Dr. Christian Scheifele gave an overview of the 3D imaging processes used at the hospital. Participants could look over his shoulder as Dr. Günter Fritzsche, an experienced CEREC® user, fitted two patients with a CEREC Zirconia bridge and a Celtra® Duo partial crown in his practice in Hamburg. He demonstrated clearly how modern CAD/CAM technology makes it possible to complete patient treatment in a single visit.

As the world's largest manufacturer of dental products and technologies, Dentsply Sirona has a brand portfolio that makes it possible to offer high-quality solutions across different disciplines. "I enjoy showing my colleagues how I use these well-planned processes every day to create added value for my patients, my employees and myself. And, of course, I appreciate the exchange of ideas with my colleagues at such events – that would be hard to implement in the daily practice routine," said Dr. Sybrand van Reede van Oudtshoorn, dentist from Polokwane, South Africa, and participant in the Train-the-Trainer event in Hamburg.
