DENTSPLY SIRONA Inc., The Dental Solutions Company™, today announced that the Company has again extended and expanded its relationship with Pacific Dental Services, LLC (PDS)
York, Pennsylvania, June 16, 2017. The new, larger five year agreement between Dentsply Sirona and PDS will provide PDS and the more than 1,600 dentists they support with access to new technologies, and unique marketing, sponsorship, and training opportunities, in addition to the entire Dentsply Sirona consumables offering. In 2012 the two companies set an industry record that resulted in CEREC® CAD/CAM technology being integrated into every PDS-supported practice. The latest agreement continues providing PDS-supported practices with leading Dentsply Sirona equipment and technology such as CEREC and the entire consumables portfolio.
PDS supports over 580 dental practices in seventeen states. As a group, PDS-supported offices have implemented Dentsply Sirona’s CEREC technology system and are the world’s largest network of CEREC users having completed over 1.4 million CEREC restorations to date. Given the significant number of PDS-supported owner-dentists who have chosen to adopt these technologies for their dental practices to date, combined with the anticipated growth in the number of PDS-supported offices, the parties anticipate that the number of PDS-supported offices utilizing Dentsply Sirona technologies could exceed 800 during the life of the agreement.
Jeffrey T. Slovin, Chief Executive Officer of Dentsply Sirona commented: “We are pleased to announce the extension and expansion of our relationship with Pacific Dental Services with this significant agreement. By partnering with PDS’ supported owner dentists we can accelerate the adoption of our innovative end-to-end integrated solutions and improve patient care. 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.”
Stephen Thorne, IV, Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of PDS explained, “Dentsply Sirona continues to be a valuable strategic partner for PDS and those practitioners we support. This renewed long-term agreement highlights our faith in them, their technology, and the benefit they offer as we continue to lead the field in helping dentists bring modern dentistry to their patients – increasing access, and improving quality.“
