North American Dental Group (NADG) and Dentsply Sirona will expand their partnership under a new agreement allowing NADG-supported dentists greater access to scanning and imaging solutions that will enhance patient treatment options, the companies said.
NADG-supported dentists will broaden their use of Dentsply Sirona’s digital solutions such as Primescan to enable workflows for services such as SureSmile clear aligners, Atlantis custom abutments, and guided implant surgery.
The tools will yield critical data points from clinical outcomes that will be leveraged to develop evidence-based standards that advance best-in-class oral care at NADG’s 250 supported dental offices across 15 states, according to the companies.
This clinical decision and others at NADG are determined by its doctor-led advisory board known as the Professional Dental Alliance.
“At North American Dental Group, we are supporting our affiliated dentists to develop clear, evidence-based clinical standards, which bolsters our mission of delivering best-in-class oral care and a tremendous patient experience at every visit,” said Dr. Andrew Matta, NADG’s cofounder and chief medical officer.
“Dentistry is evolving, and these digital solutions will aid us in further standardizing our clinical processes, which will enable our supported doctors to provide advanced clinical excellence across our entire company,” said Matta.
The foundation for the expanded partnership will be an education and training platform jointly delivered by industry experts and NADG-supported doctors with support from Dentsply Sirona’s Clinical Accelerator programs, the companies said.
The parties also are committed to co-developing educational courses to train and empower the NADG-supported clinical teams to provide best-in-class clinical care that exceeds patient expectations, they said.
“We are very excited about the partnership with NADG to advance procedural workflows through a combination of differentiated equipment and consumables technologies with cutting edge clinical education and practice support programs,” said Eric Bruno, senior vice president, North America Commercial Organization of Dentsply Sirona.
“This is a strong reflection of our belief that dentistry is essential and our commitment to healthy practices for healthy smiles,” Bruno said.
