CHARLOTTE, N.C., U.S.: Dentsply Sirona has recently announced that its event Dentsply Sirona World 2020 will be transformed into localized in-person and globally available virtual events this fall. The new formats will offer expanded opportunities for earning continuing education credits and feature speakers in dentistry presenting engaging educational sessions across 12 unique tracks. The in-person program, originally scheduled for Oct. 1–3 in Las Vegas, will be postponed to a later date.

“The current circumstances prevent an event the size and quality of Dentsply Sirona World to take place in person,” said Eric Bruno, senior vice president of the North America regional commercial organization at Dentsply Sirona, in a press release. “We are taking a stand that dentistry is essential and that digital dentistry is the future, so we are doubling down on our digital efforts for Dentsply Sirona World and complementing those with localized in-person programming in collaboration with our industry partners.”

The online event will feature a full program with a general session and innovative breakout sessions tailored to individual needs, with introductory to expert-level courses, including courses on specialties such as implantology, laboratory courses and courses on hygiene topics.

“The Dentsply Sirona World 2020 localized in-person programs and virtual event will bring an exceptional experience to attendees, with our continued commitment for delivering healthy smiles through healthy practices,” added Bruno. According to him, the event will allow attendees to interact with speakers, products and the latest technologies “in an entirely new way while continuing to shape the future of dentistry.”

Everyone already registered for Dentsply Sirona World 2020 will automatically be registered for the virtual program. Current registrations for the in-person Dentsply Sirona World 2020 will be transferred to the new in-person 2021 date when it is announced.

In a letter to those registered to attend Dentsply Sirona World, Bruno disclosed that the localized in-person programs and the global virtual event will take place in early November. The specific dates and additional details about the event will be announced in the coming weeks.
