CHARLOTTE, N.C. — As part of its ongoing focus on fostering diversity and inclusion within the dental industry, Dentsply Sirona has strengthened its collaboration with the National Dental Association (NDA) in the US by rejoining the Corporate Round Table at a Platinum-level partnership agreement.

The new partnership between Dentsply Sirona and the NDA will help fund NDA programs and support opportunities to provide minority communities with access to excellent dental education, leveraging Dentsply Sirona’s dental technology to educate dentists and student dentists of color.

The NDA supports a network of more than 7,000 minority dentists, providing them with education, support, and programs for every stage of their professional careers. One particular focus for the organization is supporting youth in underserved communities to pursue a career in dentistry – through STEM programs, help with college loans, and campus visits.

The new agreement was spearheaded by Dentsply Sirona’s BOLD (Black Organization for Leadership & Development) employee resource group (ERG) and builds on a long and important collaboration between the two organizations. Dentsply Sirona is a founding member of the NDA Corporate Round Table, an advisory group made up of top companies in the dental industry designed to strengthen the organization’s growth and development. Through the BOLD partnerships workstream, Jennifer Landgren, Founder and Chairperson of the BOLD ERG, will act as Dentsply Sirona’s representative for the Corporate Round Table.

In addition to its participation in the NDA Corporate Roundtable, Dentsply Sirona will also support NDA-HEALTH NOW – a signature program providing service, education, and access across the lifespan in underserved communities, from school children through to senior citizens. The company will also leverage the NDA member pool to expand its network of black dental experts, gain insights for product development, and find participants for focus groups.
