Dentsply Sirona Acquires Cleverdent Ltd
York/Salzburg, January 18, 2018. Dentsply Sirona is committed to its mission of empowering dental professionals to provide better, safer, faster dental care through the combination best in class technologies and clinical education, sales support and customer service. With the addition of Cleverdent Ltd to Dentsply Sirona, dental professionals will benefit from a more efficient workflow across multiple procedures.
Cleverdent developed the ClasenUNO, an innovative fusion of a dental mirror and high volume evacuation (HVE) tip, which creates efficiency for clinicians performing two-handed dentistry and reduces the need for four-handed procedures by enabling assistants to complete other tasks. The benefit of indirect vision and illumination through the mirror combined with HVE can be used across multiple wet and dry procedures, with preventive and restorative applications, including ultrasonic scaling and air polishing procedures.
“This product provides our customers with innovative technology and enhances Dentsply Sirona’s dental procedures to support more efficient clinical outcomes,” says Mark Trimmer, interim group vice president Global Preventives.
Stephan Clasen, Cleverdent owner and dentist, developed and patented ClasenUNO in collaboration with a team of technical, design and materials specialists. Since 1999 Clasen has been running his own dental practice in Münster, Germany, with a main focus on endodontics, periodontics, function diagnostics and holistic dental medicine.
ClasenUNO was first introduced at the 2015 International Dental Show and successfully launched in the German, Holland and Italian markets. It has since expanded into France, Portugal, Switzerland and South Africa.
