More than a Century of Storied History and Innovative Leadership
For more than a century, DENTSPLY and Sirona have set a global standard for dental manufacturing, technology development, digital treatment, and clinical education. Throughout our history, we've been at the forefront of innovation to improve and advance dentistry.
Dentsply Sirona traces its roots to humble beginnings: DENTSPLY International was founded as Dentists’ Supply Company in 1899 in New York City, and the company that became Sirona Dental Systems was founded in 1877 in Erlangen, Germany. Through the transformative merger in 2016, Dentsply Sirona has grown to become the world’s largest manufacturer of professional dental products and technologies with approximately 16,000 employees, operations in more than 40 countries worldwide, and a sales presence in more than 120 countries.
Throughout the last century, as separate companies, DENTSPLY and Sirona have each invested significantly in innovation, new product development – from the first dental drill to the first reciprocating root canal file, to, of course, the first chairside CAD/CAM system – and the broadest clinical education platform in the industry. Both companies recognized early on that the advantages of digitization are not in the individual device, but in the seamless interaction of hardware, software, and devices, creating an innovative solution for dental practitioners and dental patients.
At the heart of Dentsply Sirona is our unwavering commitment to innovation. As a result, our impact is significant: every year, our products and solutions reach 600,000 dental professionals, who treat over 6,000,000 patients daily! Which translates to a billion patients each year. Practitioners rely on the quality and clinical safety of our products and on the company's more than 100 years of experience. We are committed to continue earning the trust of dental professionals for the next 100 years.
Our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Council consists of demographically and functionally diverse employees from around the world. The Council’s priority is increasing employee awareness of our D&I priorities and ensuring leaders are held accountable for meeting our diversity, inclusion, and equity targets. At the first meeting, we set out several key principles:
- The Council will have up to 20 members representing the diversity of our Company, with the Senior Global Manager for Early Career Programs and Diversity & Inclusion as a permanent member.
- The Council will meet monthly or more frequently as needed.
- Council members will serve two-year terms except for the six original members, who will rotate off at the end of 2021.
- The Council will promote D&I within our Company.
- The Council will review and approve requests to form Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) and will oversee a budget to help support ERG requests.
- Create a positive Company culture by developing awareness and promoting acceptance and tolerance of diverse individuals.
- Ensure that employees of diverse backgrounds can develop, grow, and thrive at Dentsply Sirona.
The Council continues to increase awareness of sensitive topics and make a positive impact on D&I priorities, driving sustainable diversity, inclusion, and equity outcomes. They’ve achieved success in policy enhancement, promotion of internal diverse talent, growth of ERGs, and high engagement in feedback sessions such as Conversation of Understanding.Conversation of Understanding Program
In 2020, we piloted a "Conversation of Understanding" program in the U.S. with the aim of creating a safe space to encourage open dialogue and sharing. In total, more than 170 employees took part.
Conversation of Understanding sessions are open to all global employees. Due to the success of the pilot, the program is expanding to other countries in 2021 to allow local employees to join the conversation in their native languages and discuss specific topics. Jennifer Nelson, Conversation Champion, says that, “The key takeaway from these conversations has been that we must make opportunities to connect even more often, with empathy and even deeper listening.”Managing Bias
Managing bias plays a crucial role in our D&I strategy. In 2020, we introduced a new, interactive eLearning course on the topic. It identifies and defines various types of biases, explains the effects of bias, and provides tools to help eliminate it inside and outside the workplace. This online course is available to all employees around the world.Employee Resource Groups
Our ERGs are voluntary support networks for employees with shared backgrounds and interests. They are open to individuals who want to join either as a participant or ally. The DS Women and BOLD (Black Organization for Leadership & Development) ERGs both launched in 2020.DS Women
DS Women was established in 2020 to act as a forum of support and growth through allyship and mentorship, and open channels for talent development and resource sharing. It’s also one of our primary advocacy groups for gender pay parity, which is a key priority and one of the flagship goals of our sustainability strategy.BOLD
Launched in 2020, BOLD aims to connect, foster, and grow a tight-knit Black community and network of allies within Dentsply Sirona globally. It celebrates the uniqueness of its members and focuses on the cultural education, recruitment, and retention of Black employees.PRIDE
