Dentsply Sirona World in Las Vegas proves a huge success among the more than 7,500 attendees from the dental industry
 
 
Speakers and participants alike described Dentsply Sirona World 2017 as an event in a class of its own. From September 14 to 16, 7,500 attendees- from 50 different countries- and 110 speakers met in Las Vegas to enjoy not only inspiring presentations, but also an A-list entertainment program. One particular highlight of the sold- out event was a live implant procedure – thousands of dentists and other dental professionals had the opportunity to watch Dr. Neal Patel place an implant in real time during General Session.
 
Bensheim/Salzburg, September 27th, 2017. Right at the start of the event visitors were treated to a genuine highlight: just a few meters away from the audience, Dr. Neal Patel performed an implant procedure in a sectioned-off area of the industry exhibition site which, thanks to a live stream, was watched live by the 7,500 participants. The procedure was performed using a surgical guide that was produced on site. This unique experience was well received by attendees.
 
Common success by drive for innovations
Dentsply Sirona CEO Jeffrey T. Slovin took appeared on stage to explain the driving factors for Dentsply Sirona’s success. “At Dentsply Sirona, it’s all about changing lives for the better. It’s about having an impact. Our success in developing solutions that meet the needs of dental professionals worldwide is a result of a commitment to product innovation and high quality service and training. This wouldn’t be possible without knowing why we do what we do. When you know your WHY, your priorities become clear. We are truly dedicated and passionate about changing the lives of dental professionals and patients.”
 
The array of sessions within the 11 different educational tracks promoted lively discussion on a wide range of subjects relating to dentistry and dental technology, including Business and Practice Management, CEREC, Endodontics, Imaging, Implantology, Office Design, Orthodontics, Periodontics and Hygiene, Prosthetics and Lab, Restorative, and Special Markets and Topics. The range of educational tracks meant that attendees could customize their educational experience.
 
An exceptional atmosphere thanks to the impressive entertainment program
The inspiring sessions and numerous exhibitors weren’t the only factors that made this year's event unforgettable; the celebrity entertainers help mold the Ultimate Dental Meeting into a league of its own. The appearance by Oscar-nominated actor, musician and producer Will Smith was one of the major highlights. Throughout the course of his diverse career, Smith has gained a wealth of experience that has been fundamental to his professional success. In an interview and Q&A session, he talked about these experiences and also gave valuable tips on setting both professional and personal goals.
 
In addition to the inspirational appearance by Smith, the legendary stand- up comedian Jeff Dunham dished a hilarious standup bit, which included his charismatic ventriloquist dummies.
 
Friday morning, to ensure that guests were fit for the second day of presentations, the enthusiastic Beachbody™ trainer Joel Freeman offered a workout in the morning for a wide range of age groups. And if that wasn’t enough, the Out of This World Fun Run welcomed hundreds of guests dressed in intergalactic costumes for a morning run down Las Vegas Blvd.
 
With his refreshing attitude towards corporate culture and innovation, later on Friday morning, TED Talk speaker and bestselling author Simon Sinek offered practical guidance for motivating staff and also discussed the properties that define a good management style. He first gained fame back in 2009 with his simple yet impressive model for inspirational management personalities and has since impressed audiences the world over. His TED Talk video on this subject has been viewed by 31 million people and was produced with subtitles in 45 languages; it is the third most popular video on TED.com. The first-class entertainment also continued into the evening. Visitors got the chance to experience the Grammy-winning band Imagine Dragons during a concert exclusive to Dentsply Sirona World attendees. The group rocked the stage to conclude the day on a musical high!
 
The success story is set to continue in 2018
The success of this year's Dentsply Sirona World was overwhelming and the event has already been confirmed for next year. From Sept. 13 to 15, 2018, dentists and experts from the dental industry and opinions leaders from around the world are invited to Orlando, Florida, to push forward new technologies, build on existing success and, ultimately, improve patient treatments.

Dentsply Sirona World 2017: Dentists and opinion leaders from the entire dental world meet in Las Vegas.

 

More than 95 leading keynote speakers have confirmed their participation in the upcoming Dentsply Sirona World 2017: The Ultimate Dental Meeting in Las Vegas from Sept. 14-16, 2017. Event organizer Dentsply Sirona, The Dental Solutions Company, will host a mix of exciting talks, clinical training sessions, professional exchanges with colleagues and first-class entertainment featuring stars such as TED Talk luminary Simon Sinek, Grammy-Award winning band Imagine Dragons and iconic entertainer Will Smith.

 

Bensheim/Salzburg, June 28, 2017. Several thousand national and international dental professionals will come together at the three-day, cutting-edge dental conference hosted by Dentsply Sirona, the market and technology leader in the dental industry. This year’s educational festival will again offer 11 educational tracks. Attendees, as they did for SIROWORLD 2016, can create their own schedule and attend breakouts all within one track or mix and match sessions from a variety of tracks for a more comprehensive experience.

 

Sensational speakers

Many of dentistry’s elite have already confirmed their participation in the upcoming Ultimate Dental Meeting. Attendees can look forward to training and educational sessions focusing on all aspects of dentistry. The tracks include Business and Practice Management, CEREC, Imaging (including extraoral and intraoral), Implantology, Orthodontics, Endodontics, Restorative, Periodontics and Hygiene, Prosthetics and Laboratory, Office Design, and Special Markets and Topics.

Dr. Mike DiTolla, Director of Dentsply Sirona World said, “The roster of talented speakers scheduled to engage and educate our attendees is sensational, and we’re just getting started! We’re inviting a new generation of speakers, along with our veteran speakers, to 2017’s event to further diversify the education offered and continue to provide the ultimate experience for attendees.”

Dentsply Sirona World is the second annual Ultimate Dental Meeting hosted by Dentsply Sirona. At The Venetian and The Palazzo in Las Vegas, this year’s event is expected to attract an even greater number of dental professionals than SIROWORLD or CEREC 30.

 

Great entertainment

For relaxation after a comprehensive and excellent education, Dentsply Sirona will offer first-class entertainment to attendees. On Thursday evening, Sept. 14, following a full day of general sessions and breakout sessions, attendees can sit back and enjoy a relaxed, undoubtedly amusing dialogue between Dentsply Sirona World host Page 2/3

 

Dr. DiTolla and actor, producer, musician and philanthropist Will Smith. Following the interview, the floor will open to questions from the audience.

On Friday morning, Sept. 15, the author and sought-after speaker Simon Sinek will present the keynote address at Dentsply Sirona World 2017. Recognized by many as a visionary and ardent optimist, Sinek possesses an unorthodox yet refreshing outlook on corporate culture and the significance of strong leadership to incite action among professionals. Best known for popularizing the concept of WHY, he is a trained ethnographer who has dedicated his life’s work to discovering what motivates people, exploring different leadership styles, and breaking down the various stereotypes of different generations in an attempt to better understand why those individuals and the organizations that employ them “do the things they do.” Sinek is also widely known for his TED Talk “How Great Leaders Inspire Action,” which is the third most-watched TED talk, ever. He has also written three books, topping the best-sellers list for corporate America.

 

On Friday evening, Sept. 15, one of the most popular and talented bands of this generation, Imagine Dragons, will perform in a private concert exclusive for attendees at Dentsply Sirona World.

“Imagine Dragons is an extraordinary group of gifted musicians and this exclusive concert offers attendees a chance to let loose after absorbing hours of comprehensive education,” said Vice President of Marketing Ingo Zimmer. “Our organization takes pride in offering not only top-notch education for our attendees, but also offering A-list entertainment and a memorable experience for years to come.”
