Dentsply Sirona Unveils Cloud-Based DS Core Digital Dentistry Platform

The new digital platform is described as efficient, cost-effective, and easy-to-use – with automatic software updates that give dentists access to the latest version and features.

DS Core, an open, cloud-based platform operated by Dentsply Sirona designed to transform digital dentistry, was unveiled today along with other services and solutions in a virtual event. The new and open platform integrates the whole workflow of digital dentistry – across its devices, services, and technologies.

DS Core is developed in collaboration with Google Cloud and gives dentists the power to do more, so that they can focus on their patients and create easier ways to collaboratively work with labs, partners, and specialists. The companyalso introduced 2 new service offerings: DS Core Create and DS Core Care.

In early March the company announced a collaboration with Google Cloud and a separate new 3D printing solution called Primeprint. Those developments set the stage for the latest digital dentistry platforms offered by Dentsply Sirona.

“We are very proud that we are now ready to take the next step in our mission to make digital dentistry easy to integrate into dental offices. In line with our recently launched collaboration with Google Cloud, this enables seamless workflows and the highest level of connectivity with the ultimate goal in mind: the best treatment outcome for patients,” says Cord Staehler, Chief Technology Officer at Dentsply Sirona.

DS Core
DS Core is designed around the needs of dentists and modern dental practices and with a focus on security. The digital platform is described as efficient, cost-effective, and easy-to-use – with automatic software updates that give dentists access to the latest version and features. DS Core makes running a dental practice easier, because it seamlessly connects to Dentsply Sirona equipment and is accessible across multiple devices. For dentists it means they can maximize the productivity of their practice by simplifying workflows and easily adding and integrating new ones. Practitioners can use DS Core to store different types of patient files and making them accessible from multiple locations, while collaborating with partners and colleagues outside their practice. DS Core supports GDPR and HIPAA-compliant file sharing and cloud storage for patient case files.

DS Core Create
With just a few clicks, dental practitioners can gain access to high-quality expert designs that are tailored for each patient’s needs across a broad range of indications without having to use the software themselves. The cloud-based platform makes it easy to delegate the design workflow, which saves valuable time in the dental practice. The service integrates smoothly with Dentsply Sirona’s new Primeprint Solution and will grow in the future.

DS Core Care
DS Core Care is a comprehensive, integrated, and easy-to-understand equipment service and support solution that harmonizes equipment with service offerings to provide a seamless customer experience. This helps to increase equipment uptime and give dentists peace of mind so that they can focus on their patients.

This digital universe with DS Core at the center is designed to help dental practitioners to unlock the full potential of their work so that they can focus on what matters most: treating patients and giving them healthy smiles, the company says.

Primeprint Solution
Primeprint Solution is a highly automated, end-to-end, medical-grade 3D printing system for dentists and dental technicians who want to expand their treatment and service offerings. It is a smart hardware and software solution that is optimized for dental applications and can run the entire printing process including post-processing. The high level of automation helps reduce handling times, allows delegation, and enables maximized productivity. Primeprint Solution enables practitioners to print biocompatible applications with reproducible and accurate results*. The printing process has been developed in line with FDA guidelines for Additive Manufacturing (AM) medical devices and outputs from the device are medical products.

Primeprint’s benefits include the combination of complete integration, enclosed automated workflow, and industry defining efficiency; which gives dentists and their staff confidence that they are delivering very good and safe 3D printed parts to their patients. Additionally, the automation supports that every application that is 3D printed is processed, cleaned and cured to a very high standard, according to Dentsply Sirona.
