UZB, the University Center for Dentistry in Basel, is Dentsply Sirona's first major university project in Switzerland. Dentsply Sirona International Special Clinic Solutions was selected as the project partner after a public tender and accompanied this pioneering turnkey solution from the groundbreaking ceremony through to the handover of the keys in August 2019.
The university dental clinics, the school dental clinic and public dental clinic of the University Center for Dentistry in Basel (UZB) have been brought together in the new building, allowing patient treatments, teaching and research to be closely interlinked under a single roof.
As center of expertise for dentistry at cantonal, regional and national level, the UZB opted for 84 Dentsply Sirona Sinius treatment centers with additional state-of-the-art endodontics and implantology functions as well as a further 5 Intego Pro Turn treatment centers, which enable ergonomic working for both right- and left-handed users. Moreover, the 57 intraoral Heliodent Plus X-ray units can be used in a variety of ways in all areas of the UZB. During pre-clinical training at the UZB, future dentists and dental technicians have 33 simulation units at their disposal.
