DENTSPLY Tulsa's recent donation to the University of Tennessee helps establish the new Advanced Specialty Education Program in Endodontics.

DENTSPLY Tulsa's recent donation to the University of Tennessee helps establish the new Advanced Specialty Education Program in Endodontics.

The university reportedly used the funds to purchase endodontic equipment that is to be housed in a newly renovated teaching facility at the university’s Health Science Center in Memphis.  The new clinic is named after the company in honor of its contribution.

“Ultimately, we are driving better dentistry practices by helping to fund endodontic programs like the one at the University of Tennessee,” said John Voskuil, vice president and general manager of DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental Specialties. “Offering an enhanced education to these students provides health benefits to the entire community because they train on the latest equipment and technologies.” 

Prior to DENTSPLY’s donation, students had to go out of state for endodontic training. At the new on-site clinic, students can learn in a fully digital operatory outfitted with custom endodontic carts, digital radiography systems, practice management software, and more.

“We would not have been able to launch this program without the support and collaboration of partners like DENTSPLY,” said Adam Lloyd, BDS, MS, chair of the department of endodontics at the University of Tennessee. “As a teaching program for the endodontic specialty, our goal is to provide a clinical setting that comes as close to a real-life practice as possible. DENTSPLY is a recognized leader in endodontic best practices and our partnership with them is a tremendous asset in equipping our specialists to practice using the best available technology.”        

Officials from the University of Tennesse and DENTSPLY unveiled the new facility at a ribbon cutting ceremony and community open house on September 6th.
