CHARLOTTE, N.C., USA: Dentsply Sirona’s Charlotte-based Dentsply Sirona Academy welcomed more than 10,000 guests through its doors in 2019.

In its first full year of operation the 28,525-square-foot training facility held nearly 500 events, including continuing education sessions, training, customer meetings and study clubs.

“This is an incredible achievement,” said Dentsply Sirona Vice President of Marketing Ingo Zimmer. “The clinical affairs team worked tirelessly to make sure those thousands of guests each enjoyed their experience and left understanding just how committed Dentsply Sirona is to empowering dental professionals through innovation and education.”

Open since late May 2018, the Dentsply Sirona Academy features advanced, proven dental product solutions in a clinical setting. The space includes multiple classrooms, a 288-seat auditorium, seven fully outfitted operatories and two simulation labs. It offers a wide variety of clinical and technical courses, including hands-on teaching, live lectures and on-demand webinars.

“This academy is the embodiment of our educational philosophy,” said Clinical Affairs Director Nick Harrison. “Not only is it a place where dental professionals can hear and see our end-to-end solutions through our procedures and workflows, but it’s a place they can actually experience them hands-on.”

Dentsply Sirona offers a special thank you for this accomplishment to its education partners, Spear Education and CEREC Doctors, as well as the support from its supporting dental professionals and customers.

The academy is finished with its course offerings for 2019, but is resuming in January 2020. For more information on the Dentsply Sirona Academy and its course offerings, you can visit
