Can you provide a bit of background on the Treatment Centers, such as why Dentsply Sirona developed them; some background on R&D or clinician input overseas and/or in the U.S.?

Treatment Centers have always been an integral part of Dentsply Sirona’s heritage. One of our first ventures in core equipment was in 1929 with the first integrated Treatment Center. The Sirona brand name was first used for a Treatment Center developed in 1956. As an established innovation leader, Dentsply Sirona’s Treatment Center division is no exception. With our team of over 600 engineers and scientists, we are able to integrate the latest technologies and provide the best solutions for our customers.

Our research and development department uses our worldwide leadership to develop and test our products along with the expertise of practitioners, technicians, sales and marketing feedback from over 120 countries. The U.S. has always had a big influence in our research, and we are proud to offer our Transcendental Treatment Center solutions to the U.S. 

The Treatment Centers have been available overseas for a time now. What was the thinking behind offering them here in the U.S.?

Sirona’s efforts have always been focused on CAD/CAM and digital imaging segments, it is now time for the U.S. dental community to experience innovative and modern solutions in the core equipment segment as well.
