TULSA, Okla.—On Thursday, November 17, 2016, NYU College of Dentistry (NYU Dentistry) celebrated the culmination of a goal set years earlier with a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the Dentsply Sirona Endodontic Suite.

The new clinical suite, which employs some of the most advanced educational and patient care technologies available, was made possible by a partnership between NYU Dentistry and Dentsply Sirona.

“Today,” said Dr. Charles N. Bertolami, Herman Robert Fox Dean of NYU Dentistry, “NYU has the most sophisticated endodontic suite in the nation, ensuring our ability to provide the finest endodontic education in an environment that reflects truly patient-centered care. And it could never, ever have happened without Dentsply Sirona.” 

Dr. Asgeir Sigurdsson, associate professor and chair of NYU’s Dr. Ignatius N. and Sally Quartararo Department of Endodontics, expressed his appreciation to both Dentsply Sirona and the college’s leadership team for “making possible this outstanding facility.”

“For an endodontics department chair,” he said, “it is a dream come true.”

“Thanks to Dentsply Sirona and its partnership with the College of Dentistry, we have been able to create this beautiful and most advanced facility of its kind. Just one of the new treatment centers would be impressive, that there are 37 of them is remarkable, and that they are all in the same location and interconnected is even more so. NYU thanks Dentsply Sirona from the bottom of our hearts for the remarkable contribution that this new facility makes to the College of Dentistry and to our students’ education. It is wonderful to know that the future endodontists we are training will have a positive impact on the lives of our patients and on our community because of the splendid environment they now have in which to learn," NYU President Andrew Hamilton said speaking on behalf of New York University.

Prior to the renovation, NYU’s endodontic dental units were more than 25 years old, and space limitations meant that there were no chairside radiographic units. 

“This was the first project undertaken by the newly merged Dentsply Sirona and represents our commitment to research, product development, and clinical education. Now, one of the best departments of endodontics has the most modern clinical suite. With this new facility, the standard has been set, and together we’ve created an unparalleled environment for research and clinical education. Dentsply Sirona is grateful for this opportunity to collaborate with NYU to advance dentistry and improve oral health.” said Bret W. Wise, executive chairman of the board of Dentsply Sirona.
