The Dentsply Sirona Endodontic Clinical Suite will open at the New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry in September. The cutting-edge facility will feature new equipment from the company as it serves the Dr. Ignatius and Sally Quartararo Department of Endodontics, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year and is the oldest department of endodontics in the nation.
“With our new state-of-the-art facility, NYU will have one of the most sophisticated endodontic clinical suites in the nation, thus ensuring our ability to provide the finest endodontic education and to help alleviate patients’ suffering in a manner that reflects truly patient-centered care,” said Dr. Charles N. Bertolami, the Herman Robert Fox Dean of NYU College of Dentistry.
The suite will feature a fully integrated computer network with best-practice case management software, along with a fully equipped surgical suite, fully equipped restorative and endodontic treatment centers, intraoral x-ray stations, endodontic motors, ultrasonic units, intraoral sensors, and a CBCT device that produces 3-D images of teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan.
“Dentsply Sirona believes that our next generation of endodontists and general practitioners should have the opportunity to learn in the most innovative training facilities with the latest technology available,” said Jeffrey T. Slovin, CEO of Dentsply Sirona. “We couldn’t be more excited to enter into this collaboration with the NYU College of Dentistry, one of the most advanced dental schools in the world, and thereby continue to support the profession through research and education.”
In addition to serving students at the dental school, the suite will be home to a pair of full-time continuing education series, the Advanced Programs for International Dentists in comprehensive care and aesthetics.
“It is altogether fitting that we announce this collaboration at the celebration of the 90th anniversary of the establishment of the department of endodontics at NYU,” said Bertolami, “as it ensures that the department will continue to play a leadership role in endodontic specialty training in the future as it has in the past.”
