Sirona Dental Systems Celebrates 25 Years of CAD/CAM Excellence and Leadership

It seems like only yesterday that I was in dental school hearing one of my last fixed prosthetics lectures. The professor was talking about this machine that was being tested in Germany that could take pictures of teeth and then mill out a porcelain restoration. I remember him saying, "We don't know for sure, but there may come time before you retire that you won't need to take an impression." My first thought was "I've got to get one of those!"

Well, here it is 25 years later and the concept of digital impressions has been a reality for a very long time. To mark this momentous occasion, Sirona is hosting a big shindig to say Happy 25th Birthday CEREC. Read on for details:

CEREC® 25th Anniversary Celebration (C25) will be held August 26 – 28th
