Dentsply and Sirona merge to create new dental super power


Dental Solutions CompanyDentsply and Sirona have joined forces to create: The Dental Solutions Company.

The two called the deal a “merger of equals”, combining two of the world’s largest dental supply companies.

The Dental Solutions Company is set to cover a broad range of dental needs having been created from “Dentsply, the market leader in dental consumables and Sirona, the market leader in dental technology and equipment.” The new company will have one the most diversified manufacturing portfolios within the dental world. It is yet to be seen how such a large merger will impact on the market but share trading on Sirona has already been halted with shareholders set to receive 1.8142 shares in the new ‘Dentsply Sirona.’

The company’s statement looked forward to the future. “Dentsply Sirona’s wide array of products for dental professionals and labs enable the treatment of general and specialty procedures including implantology, endodontics and orthodontics. With the broadest clinical education platform in the industry, the company is driving the adoption of new and approved technology and integrated solutions for more efficient workflows.”

The new company’s executives responded buoyantly to the future prospects of the combined company’s might.

“With our merger complete, Dentsply Sirona can now focus its efforts on empowering dental professionals to provide better, safer and faster dental care,” said chief executive officer, Jeffrey Slovin, in a press release. “As The Dental Solutions Company, we will drive long-term growth by being uniquely positioned to deliver innovative solutions and support our customers with the broadest product portfolio and the largest sales and service infrastructure in the industry. Dentsply Sirona will continue to be at the forefront of the digitization of dentistry, single visit dentistry and improving clinical outcomes for patients around the world.”

Bret Wise, the executive chairman was equally hopeful for the company’s future “This is a transformational day for Dentsply Sirona and the entire dental market.  Our unparalleled offering of some of the most trusted brands in consumables, equipment and technology makes Dentsply Sirona the partner of choice to dental professionals and labs today.  With an unmatched commitment to investing in research, product development and clinical education, Dentsply Sirona will advance patient care and improve oral health on a global scale for years to come.”
