Dentsply Sirona equips Qatar’s first dental school with cutting-edge training tools to prepare the next generation of dental professionals
Qatar University, the country’s primary institution for higher education, is partnering with Dentsply Sirona to equip the university’s brand-new preclinical lab at the newly founded College of Dental Medicine. Dentsply Sirona is providing state-of-the-art simulator workstations, instruments, as well as the latest CEREC and inLab software systems to prepare students for the digital future of dentistry.
Charlotte, December 14, 2021. Universities and large clinics around the world have entrusted Dentsply Sirona’s International Special Clinic Solutions (ISCS) division and its comprehensive approach to achieve their specific goals. When Qatar University’s College of Dental Medicine in Doha, envisioned their brand-new preclinical laboratory, they worked with Dentsply Sirona’s team to comprehensively equip it with state-of-the- art technology to prepare students for dentistry’s digital future.
32 Sim Intego workstations plus two additional instructor units now offer the best possible learning environment following the latest technological advancements. Additionally, 15 CEREC AI units and the inLab system will be used to support future dentists in their training for highly specialized procedures.
“The new College of Dental Medicine at Qatar University sees it as part of its core mission to incorporate digital technologies and the latest advancements into its teaching. Thanks to Dentsply Sirona’s innovative products and team of experts we were able to create a future-proof training environment,” said Dr. Hanin Daas, Director of Dental Laboratories at Qatar University.
Preparing for the future of dentistry on cutting-edge equipment
All products installed at the University of Qatar have been designed and produced in Germany using particularly robust and durable materials that are ideal for a university setting. The state-of-the-art Sim Intego workstations in the preclinic allow students to train in practice-like conditions. Sim Intego includes key components of treatment centers such as the dentist element so that students already familiarize themselves with the actual treatment process in their preclinical semesters.
Furthermore, the university also opted for the lightweight T1 line instruments series. These easy-to-handle instruments help ensure the College of Dental Medicine is able to deliver the best training of correct instrumentation techniques to deliver optimal results.
The International Special Clinic Solutions team selected the ideal product mix for Qatar University to fulfill their plan to make the most modern learning tools available to their students. During the preclinical training, CEREC and inLab systems will prepare the students for using CAD/CAM technology in dentistry. Additionally, staff will be supported by a multimedia teaching system designed to enhance communication and to give students the best view of demonstrations at the master workstation. With a one touch button, it is possible to share real-time, high-quality images from any device on any screen in the classroom.
Dentsply Sirona is proud to have been selected by Qatar University to help turn their vision of educating world-class dental professionals and the nation’s first graduates of dental medicine into a reality. In consultations for the preclinic area, the International Special Clinic Solutions team discussed the university’s ideas and goals thoroughly and addressed each individual requirement in detail. The engineering team in Germany then developed a custom-made concept that delivers the required portfolio from start to finish.
The College of Dental Medicine’s preclinical lab educates students in the basics of clinical dentistry before they practice on actual patients. The new lab provides a technologically advanced environment to train students in digital dentistry thus ensuring that the next generation of dental practitioners are well prepared to meet the demands of the future.
