A digital dentistry task force was established to transform the dental school curriculum to a completely digital learning environment. The task force set out with a goal to provide students with all of the tools needed for comprehensive treatment plans and efficient delivery of the highest level of oral health care using digital dental technologies. It evaluated the necessary facilities, equipment, and technical support required to create a seamless all-inclusive system. GSDM sought to make the digital conversion as user-friendly and seamless as possible. The findings of that task force led GSDM to enter into an agreement with Sirona that will enable GSDM to become the first all-digital school of dentistry in the nation. Sirona is able to offer an expansive leading product portfolio, strong technical support, and seamless technology integration capabilities. Sirona’s digital technology is used as an educational tool as well as for hands-on clinical experience in the majority of dental schools.

“We are honored to enter into this first of its kind endeavor with Boston University,” remarked Jeffrey Slovin, president and CEO of Sirona Dental Systems, Inc. “Students will get to experience the true workings of a current dental practice environment and we commend the University for leading the way towards educating its students using digital dentistry techniques. We are pleased to collaborate with Boston University in setting the stage for the future of dental education.”
