Dentists and opinion leaders meet in Las Vegas

Published: 04/07/2017

More than 95 leading keynote speakers have confirmed their participation in the upcoming Dentsply Sirona World 2017, taking place in Las Vegas on September 14-16.

Event organiser Dentsply Sirona, The Dental Solutions Company, will host a mix of exciting talks, clinical training sessions, professional exchanges with colleagues and first-class entertainment, featuring stars such as TED Talk luminary Simon Sinek, Grammy-Award winning band Imagine Dragons and iconic entertainer Will Smith.

Several thousand national and international dental professionals will come together at the three-day, cutting-edge dental conference hosted by Dentsply Sirona. This year’s educational festival will again offer 11 educational tracks. Attendees, as they did for Siroworld 2016, can create their own schedule and attend breakouts all within one track or mix and match sessions from a variety of tracks for a more comprehensive experience.

Sensational speakers

Many of dentistry’s elite have already confirmed their participation in the upcoming meeting. Attendees can look forward to training and educational sessions focusing on all aspects of dentistry. The tracks include business and practice management, Cerec, imaging (including extraoral and intraoral), implantology, orthodontics, endodontics, restorative, periodontics and hygiene, prosthetics and laboratory, office design and special markets and topics.

Mike DiTolla, director of Dentsply Sirona World, said, “The roster of talented speakers scheduled to engage and educate our attendees is sensational, and we’re just getting started! We’re inviting a new generation of speakers, along with our veteran speakers, to 2017’s event to further diversify the education offered and continue to provide the ultimate experience for attendees.”

Dentsply Sirona World is the second annual ‘Ultimate dental meeting’ hosted by Dentsply Sirona. At The Venetian and The Palazzo in Las Vegas, this year’s event is expected to attract an even greater number of dental professionals than Siroworld or Cerec 30.

Great entertainment

For relaxation after a comprehensive and excellent education, Dentsply Sirona will offer first-class entertainment to attendees. On Thursday evening of September 14, following a full day of general sessions and breakout sessions, attendees can sit back and enjoy a relaxed and undoubtedly amusing dialogue between Dentsply Sirona World host Mike DiTolla and actor, producer, musician and philanthropist Will Smith. Following the interview, the floor will open to questions from the audience.

On the morning of Friday, September 15, the author and sought-after speaker Simon Sinek will present the keynote address at Dentsply Sirona World 2017. Recognised by many as a visionary and ardent optimist, Sinek possesses an unorthodox yet refreshing outlook on corporate culture and the significance of strong leadership to incite action among professionals. Best known for popularising the concept of ‘Start with why’, he is a trained ethnographer who has dedicated his life’s work to discovering what motivates people, exploring different leadership styles and breaking down the various stereotypes of different generations in an attempt to better understand why those individuals and the organisations that employ them “do the things they do”. Sinek is also widely known for his TED Talk ‘How great leaders inspire action’, which is the third most-watched TED talk, ever. He has also written three books, topping the best-sellers list for corporate America.

On the evening of Friday, September 15, one of the most popular and talented bands of this generation, Imagine Dragons, will perform in a private concert exclusive for attendees at Dentsply Sirona World.

“Imagine Dragons is an extraordinary group of gifted musicians and this exclusive concert offers attendees a chance to let loose after absorbing hours of comprehensive education,” said Ingo Zimmer, vice president of marketing. “Our organisation takes pride in offering not only top-notch education for our attendees, but also offering A-list entertainment and a memorable experience for years to come.”
