Reopening of Dentsply Sirona Academy - Clinical training at the highest level

New premises and facilities

Obviously new, surprisingly different – the Dentsply Sirona Academy awaits visitors in completely renovated premises that make training of an exceptionally high quality not only possible, but accessible and modern. Every year, the academy will provide training for up to 10,000 professional consultants, dentists, dental technicians, and employees of dental practices, with the addition of Dentsply Sirona internal employees, in approximately 2,000 square meters of entirely renovated and equipped space.

In the completely redesigned showroom, sections for each of the specific product areas have been set up respectively. Within these areas, the ten Dentsply Sirona business units are also found, which reflect the company's character as the Dental Solutions Company. Here, the products are available for demonstration and hands-on use with clinical models to simulate an in-office experience. In addition, all of the treatment units within the academy are digitally connected to the X-ray and laboratory sections, so that the digital workflow and connectivity of our product portfolios can be optimally demonstrated. The furnishings have been fully optimized to be flexible so that the rooms can be easily adapted to new products and solutions at any time.

"As a leader in innovation, it is important to us that with the Dentsply Sirona Academy, we can offer a pioneering center for further education and training," said Michael Geil, Managing Director in Bensheim and Group Vice President Treatment Centers at Dentsply Sirona, at the festive reopening ceremony in Bensheim. "The professional, needs-oriented, and dynamic program sets new standards."

The focus, in addition to products, is above all on solutions that are well-conceived from the diagnosis to the final treatment. All of the sections have an open design and bring the concept of how the products work together to life.

Courses and training at the clinic level

The products and treatment workflows are demonstrated in a clinical setting in the new academy, so that theory and practice interact directly with one another, making the integrated workflows tangible across all disciplines. A large classroom with 20 simulation units has been set up where digital interfaces enable multimedia training support of the highest standard. An auditorium, which is separated from the treatment room by a glass wall, has also been set up. In the future, it will also be possible to do live treatments here.

Overall, the capacity for hands-on demonstrations and training sessions at the academy in Bensheim has been increased significantly. The academy views itself as both a training center and a meeting place for partners and customers, where they can intensify their contact and get direct feedback.

Setting training standards with concept and quality

Professional knowledge and well-practiced skills are the building blocks of successful dentistry. In order to make the best possible use of the innovative products and solutions, there is a great need for high-quality teaching and learning opportunities. "By redesigning the Dentsply Sirona Academy in Bensheim, we accommodate the future requirements of our customers and partners because we are convinced that further education and training puts them in a position to implement the available technologies and solutions optimally for themselves and their patients," Michael Glemser, Director of the Dentsply Sirona Academy, told numerous guests and media representatives at the opening ceremony.

"For us, it is important that the users of products and processes are able to apply them directly, efficiently, and successfully in their daily work. Continuous further education and training make the difference for us as a company," says Dominique Legros, Senior Vice President, Equipment, Technologies and Healthcare at Dentsply Sirona. "At the Dentsply Sirona Academy, the knowledge necessary for this is imparted, enabling new perspectives for the benefit of the patients and improving profitability of practices and labs."
