Dentsply Sirona has signed a new 5-year agreement with Pacific Dental Services (PDS) — a company that supports more than 580 dental practices in 17 states — that will expand its service offerings to the company’s more than 1,600 dentists.
Under the agreement, Dentsply will offer PDS-supported practices with access to new
equipment and technology such as CEREC and the entire consumables portfolio. Unique marketing, sponsorship, and training opportunities will also be offered.
According to Dentsply Sirona, the two companies set an industry record in 2012 that resulted in CEREC computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology being integrated into every PDS supported practice. This move positioned PDS-supported offices as the world’s largest network of CEREC users, having completed more than 1.4 million CEREC restorations to date.
“By partnering with PDS’ supported owner dentists, we can accelerate the adoption of our innovative end-to-end integrated solutions and improve patient care,” says Jeffrey T. Slovin, chief executive officer of Dentsply Sirona. “For years, PDS’ supported owner dentists have been at the forefront of embracing Dentsply Sirona technology as a core differentiator and growth enabler. We are excited to continue and expand this valuable partnership for years to come.” PDS and Dentsply Sirona anticipate that the number of PDS-supported offices utilizing CAD/CAM technology could exceed 800 during the 5-year agreement.
