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.

"The University Center for Dentistry in Basel, UZB, chose Dentsply Sirona within the scope of a public tender as its offering best satisfied the criteria. In addition to the price and functional requirements, we also set store by reference projects and services and support. The delivery, installation and commissioning of the 89 treatment centers and the 32 simulation units in the phantom hall went without a hitch, something which certainly cannot be taken for granted. Just a few months after commissioning, we can confirm that, based on user feedback, the decision for Dentsply Sirona was spot on."

Andreas Stutz, CEO of the University Center for Dentistry in Basel
