Leading the Future in Chicago!



An estimated 300 dental professionals, including customers, leaders, innovators, and game changers, came together during the Chicago Mid-Winter Meeting when Ivoclar Vivadent hosted their “Leading the Future” celebration.

The entertaining and fun-filled evening, held on Friday, February 22nd at the Imperial Ballroom in the Fairmount Chicago Millennium Park Hotel showcased the company’s partnerships and innovations that are shaping the future direction of dentistry.  Highlighting the program was a dynamic and inspiring panoramic presentation from Ivoclar Vivadent CEO Robert Ganley.

“This is an exciting time in dentistry, with so much potential for growth and innovation,” said Ganley. “Our future success will depend upon leadership, collaborative partnerships, and forward-based thinking. This event reflects this, and I believe it reinforces what we’ve achieved and what is yet to come.”
A performance from the Leading the Future Dancers and Chicago-based Siren’s, included a cutting-edge musical rock violin show with choreographed dancers in mirrored costumes and a future forward video set to music.

Ivoclar Vivadent also announced their recent acquisition of Wieland Dental and Wieland Precision Technology, two unique, but different solutions for monolithic zirconia restorations.  “The need to change has never changed,” added Ganley.  “By acquiring these companies, we are poised to stay ahead of the curve and can now offer our customers all-ceramics, all-options.”
