LONG ISLAND CITY, New York--Sirona Dental Systems, Inc., one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-technology dental equipment, has announced it has received U.S. patent approval for its new Sirona By Kappler line of innovative dental cabinetry.

Sirona and Kappler, a leading designer and producer of premier office and medical cabinetry worldwide, have collaborated since January 2005 to combine their innovations in dental technology and cabinet design, resulting in a new benchmark in functionality, craftsmanship, and practice efficiency.

U.S. Patent D532,991 specifically covers the design and functionality of the Sirona by Kappler 12 O'clock cabinet. These design and functional elements include adjustable and independent work surfaces for assistants and doctors; swivel drawers; utility chases within the pivot posts; seamless integration of the Sirona Rear Delivery Units and Assistant's Elements; and the 1/8" steel fabricated frame.

Designed to perform seamlessly with the Sirona C8+ Treatment Center and C8+ Solo Chair, the Sirona by Kappler 12 O'clock Cabinet features an advanced ergonomic design ideally suited for 2 or 4-handed dentistry with easy left to right handed conversion for maximum flexibility.

The work surfaces and swiveling drawers can be positioned in close proximity to the oral cavity--minimizing movement during treatment, reducing practitioner fatigue, and providing immediate accessibility in the work area to all essential instruments and consumables.

"Sirona by Kappler dental cabinetry brings together cutting-edge design and engineering, advanced dental technology, and superior functionality--all in one place, and all for enhanced practice efficiency," said Andrew McIlveen, Marketing Manager--Treatment Centers, for Sirona USA.

"Our collaboration with Kappler focuses on practitioners. An organized, clean, and functional environment that enables mobility, access and storage facilitates better patient care and workflow. We are committed to elevating their success by creating the best work environment possible."
