Dentsply Sirona Launches Sustainability Educational Curriculum for Dental Professionals

Dentsply Sirona has launched the first of a series of educational courses on sustainability in dentistry, and is available for free, online now.

Dentsply Sirona has launched the first course of its Sustainability Educational Curriculum online and for free through Dentsply Sirona Academy. These courses are designed to help clinicians better understand the sustainability challenges in the dental industry as well as resources to help those clinicians meet the needs of their practice in an eco-friendly way, according to a press release from Dentsply Sirona.

This curriculum was developed the information garnered from the Global Sustainability in Dentistry Study, which was commissioned by Dentsply Sirona. This study gave critical insight in the formation of this curricula, according to Dentsply Sirona’s Chief Legal Officer and Chair of Sustainability Committee, Cherée Johnson.

“At Dentsply Sirona we are determined to contribute our knowledge, technologies, and passion to this important cause,” Johnson said in the press release. “We commissioned this study to understand how dentists around the world view sustainability and where they look to us and the industry for support.”

The first course of 5 is available now and is eligible for continuing education credit in the United States and Canada. More courses are set to follow in 2023.
