A-dec collaborates with Dentsply Sirona

Dentsply Sirona and A-dec expand their collaboration by integrating Primescan Connect into A-dec delivery systems

Dentsply Sirona, the largest manufacturer of professional dental products and technologies, and A-dec, a leading manufacturer of dental operatory equipment, today announced the expansion of their collaboration.

Charlotte, N.C. / Newberg, OR, February 21, 2024 – Today, Dentsply Sirona and A-dec announced the extension of their collaboration and the integration of the Dentsply Sirona Primescan Connect™ intraoral scanner with the A-dec 500 and A-dec 300 delivery systems.

The expanded collaboration reflects the need for simplicity, ease, and productivity of digital impressions. Offering Dentsply Sirona’s Primescan Connect as an integrated option brings high efficiency to doctors’ workflow and significant value to their A-dec delivery systems. The Primescan Connect intraoral scanner enables a highly accurate, full arch scan in under one minute. Incorporated into the A-dec delivery system, Primescan Connect can improve the patient experience, increase operational efficiency, and support revenue generation for the practice. Primescan Connect is powered by Dentsply Sirona’s cloud-based software platform, DS Core*. This platform allows dental professionals to enhance their daily workflows with different tools, like viewing images remotely from their smart phone or other connected devices, creating productivity and flexibility for dental professionals.

A-dec Chief Executive Officer, Marv Nelson, said the strategic collaboration is a fitting way to mark the company’s 60th year of bringing dentists reliable, creative solutions. “A-dec customers will benefit from the ability to offer digital impressions more easily with great accessibility to images. We are pleased that this collaboration with Dentsply Sirona brings one more valuable integrated option for our customers. Adding Primescan Connect reinforces our commitment to give professionals more choices of integrated devices and technology for their A-dec equipment, elevating their practices now and well into the future.”

“Our expanded collaboration with A-dec offers significant value to customers as it adds our hi-tech Primescan Connect intraoral scanner to A-dec’s modern dental delivery systems, enabling excellent workflows for dental professionals and facilitating more treatment options for their patients,” says Andreas Frank, Executive Vice President and Chief Business Officer at Dentsply Sirona. “For us, the future of digital dentistry means providing our customers with the tools to grow their practice, increase efficiency, and drive better patient experiences and clinical outcomes.”

This offering builds upon the two companies’ previous successful collaboration integrating the Dentsply Sirona’s Cavitron® ultrasonic scaling system into A-dec delivery systems. The interface with Dentsply Sirona’s Primescan Connect intraoral scanner is expected to be available through selected dealers on new A-dec 500 and A-dec 300 delivery systems in late spring 2024.
