The Dentsply Sirona Academy welcomed more than 10,000 guests in 2019. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, 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 Ingo Zimmer, vice president of marketing. “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.”

The facility, which opened in May 2018, includes multiple classrooms, a 288-seat auditorium, seven fully outfitted operatories, and two simulation labs. The clinical and technical courses offered there include hands-on teaching, live lectures, and on-demand webinars.

“This academy is the embodiment of our educational philosophy,” said Nick Harrison, clinical affairs director. “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.”
