Dentsply Sirona invites dental professionals to participate in the FDI Sustainability Summit to learn about eco-friendly dental practices.

“On World Environment Day, a day that advocates for awareness and action for the protection of the environment, we are once again reminded that the time to act is now – our industry needs to become more sustainable and every single one of us can and should contribute,” says Tony Johnson, SVP, Chief Supply Chain Officer, and Executive Sponsor for ESG at Dentsply Sirona. “A good entry point is coming up in a couple of weeks – the FDI Sustainability in Dentistry Summit, which will offer plenty of actionable information and lasting motivation for everyone dedicated to making a difference.”

Dentsply Sirona will be present with a digital booth and panel talk

This year’s FDI Sustainability in Dentistry Summit will take place entirely virtually from June 18th to 20th, from 4 to 5.30 pm CEST daily. The global event will allow participants to find out more about eco-friendly dental practices, available sustainability resources, and impactful initiatives via a selection of insightful presentations and interactive discussions, as well as a virtual exhibition.

Dentsply Sirona, recently named “One of America’s Greenest Companies 2024” by Newsweek, invites participants to visit the digital company booth at the event, which will provide a host of sustainability resources and insights into projects and initiatives supported by the company. There is also a chance to ask questions on the topic of sustainability. Dr. Rainer Seemann, Vice President Global Clinical Affairs and Workflows at Dentsply Sirona, will also be on the ‘Sustainability and Education’ panel on June 19th, discussing educational resources for dental professionals provided by Dentsply Sirona as well as by the FDI Sustainability in Dentistry initiative, of which Dentsply Sirona is a co-founding partner.
