Orange, CA – September 20, 2010 – Sybron Dental Specialties (SDS), Inc. announced the official opening of the Sybron Learning Center (SLC), a state-of-the-art continuing education center designed to provide dental professionals the opportunity to demonstrate and learn cutting-edge best practices.
The 15,000+ square foot facility, located directly adjacent to the Disneyland® Resort Theme Parks in Anaheim, Calif., will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on October 28, 2010 to commemorate the occasion.
This cutting-edge learning center is equipped with the latest laboratory and multimedia technologies, including: full film and broadcast capability, a primary surgery suite, a 200-seat auditorium and a 50-person bench laboratory with adjoining observation room, four fully functional operatories and an x-ray room equipped with 3-D panoramic, Pan/Ceph, & intraoral x-ray imaging.
SDS President Daniel Even said: “Sybron Dental Specialties further commits to our already high-quality educational offerings across all of our business units through the addition of the Sybron Learning Center. Continuing education through our network of key opinion leaders has always been a Sybron trademark for spreading the message on our great products and new technologies.”
The SLC will offer multi-disciplinary, cross-functional programs encompassing a broad range of topics and the latest trends in dentistry, including implants, endodontics, restorative dentistry, general dentistry and orthodontics. This high-tech facility enables Sybron Dental Specialties to offer continuing education in a wide variety of formats, including lectures, video presentations, computer-assisted self-learning, hands-on demonstrations and live patient procedures.
Heading up the initiative is SLC Director Michelle Sawicki, who commented: “At Sybron Dental Specialties, we understand the importance of continuing education in helping dental professionals enhance their techniques and their practices. The Sybron Learning Center is the latest in our ongoing commitment to education that will ultimately help our customers better serve their patients.”
The Sybron Learning Center was made possible by the generous contributions of equipment from several of our sister companies. Furnishings for all operatories, including cabinetry, seating, lighting, monitor mounts, hand pieces, water treatment, vacuums, a fully equipped sterilization lab, and compressors were donated by Pelton & Crane. Furnishings for the hands-on Bench Lab include stations precisely designed to fit our lab's learning needs and are equipped to operate 50 stations simultaneously.
