Dentsply Sirona Academy

Dentsply Sirona has one of the largest, most comprehensive clinical education programs in the dental industry. Our program helps further our mission of empowering dental professionals and students with the up-to-date knowledge and skills they need to advance themselves and their practices. Through training programs, courses, resources, and self-directed learning – online and at 55 training facilities, dental academies, and showrooms – we promote intellectual curiosity, ambition, and drive for the highest standards of dental treatment quality and safety.

Our comprehensive Dentsply Sirona clinical education program, supported by leading clinical experts and organizations, brought nearly 300,000 oral health professionals together in 2021 through training courses, webinars, and live lectures.

The DS Academy is not a place – it is a service supported by leading clinical experts that combines a mixture of in-person and online offerings and includes an on-demand clinical education course library. In 2021, the library offered 275 courses (up from 175 in 2020). We have 55 educational facilities in 33 countries across seven regional commercial organizations.

Women in Dentistry

At Dentsply Sirona, we’re committed to engaging the most talented experts and KOLs in support of innovation and clinical education. Currently, about 1 in 5 experts employed by Dentsply Sirona are female, and we’ve created several female-focused Key Opinion Leader (KOL) development programs, including the Smart Integration Award and the Female Speaker Development Program, as well as a KOL database of our female talent.

Looking to the future, we’ll continue seeking input from female dental professionals to guide our innovation efforts and help us develop case studies, testimonials, and on-demand educational content for the Dentsply Sirona Academy.

Dentsply Sirona’s Global Women Speaker Development Program
