Dentsply Sirona will share details about the company’s collaboration with Google Cloud and a separate new 3D printing solution, Primeprint, in a virtual global event on 4 Mar 2022.
The company will introduce a series of innovations designed to enhance digital workflows with benefits for dentists, dental labs and patients globally. A highlight of this event will be interviews with Google’s senior vice-president in engineering, Urs Hoelzle, and Dentsply Sirona CEO, Don Casey, who will be announcing a new collaboration between the two technology companies.
“Dentsply Sirona has always been a pioneer in digital dentistry. Whether it was virtually inventing dental imaging, creating intraoral scanning or creating single visit dentistry, Dentsply Sirona has led the way,” said Casey. “Together with Google Cloud, we will make it easier for dentists to evolve their digital practice or make the first move into digital dentistry. Additionally, with Primeprint, we are building upon our integrated end-to-end workflow offerings for dental practices and labs.”
The collaboration with Google Cloud will help dentists and dental labs to unlock benefits of digital dentistry – whether they are continuing or just starting on their digital journey.
The new digital dentistry solutions will be based on six key principles: enabling high-value dental care; next-generation digital featuring secure and seamless sharing of data with laboratories and other dental practitioners; easy access to data whenever needed; high-quality 3D visualisation of dental imagery; stringent data protection and security standards; and an innovative environment for software, data integrity and storage.
Christian Martin, managing director of Alps Region at Google Cloud, commented: “Dentsply Sirona is transforming the dental industry. At Google Cloud we believe that we have the right expertise, capabilities and services to strongly support Dentsply Sirona in its vision for the future of oral healthcare.”
Casey added: “This exciting collaboration will allow us to deliver on our promise: empowering millions of customers by proudly creating innovative solutions for healthy smiles. We will succeed in this by giving dentists an innovative platform to underpin the digital infrastructure of their practice and enabling a seamless workflow that helps dentists to focus on what matters most: treating their patients.”
Separate from the collaboration with Google Cloud, Dentsply Sirona will also launch Primeprint, a medical-grade 3D printing system for dental practices and dental labs.
Primeprint is a smart hardware and software solution that is optimised for dental applications. It runs the entire printing process, including post processing, and delivers reproducible and accurate results with strictly biocompatible materials. The printing process meets high regulatory requirements for medical products.
“For us dentists, Primeprint turns 3D printing into an efficient application for everyday use, and that’s also great for my patients,” said Dr Mike Skramstad, dentist from Scottsdale, Arizona. “The workflow is fully automated, easy to use, as well as end-to-end, so I can both delegate and get the best possible results quickly.”
