Orlando, FL (August 17, 2016) - Dentsply Sirona, The Dental Solutions Company™, concluded 2016's SIROWORLD: The Ultimate Dental Meeting on Saturday, Aug. 13.  The event closed after three days of countless networking opportunities, comprehensive and educational clinical content, a wide-ranging trade show floor and exceptional entertainment.

SIROWORLD commenced on Thursday, Aug. 11, with more than 4,000 dental professionals eagerly arriving at the Rosen Shingle Creek for a bustling weekend of clinical and business education.

Thursday began with the opening General Session, featuring Dentsply Sirona CEO Jeffrey Slovin, Group Senior Vice President of the U.S. Commercial Organization Michael Augins and the always entertaining Director of Clinical Affairs Dr. Mike DiTolla as the master of ceremonies.

After the initial introduction by Dentsply Sirona leaders during the opening session, Dr. Tarun Agarwal, Dr. Lyndon Cooper, Dr. Dennis Fasbinder, Dr. Sameer Puri, Shannon Richkowski, and Dr. John West all took the stage one after another to engage and excite SIROWORLD attendees for the coming breakouts and festivities that comprised the ultimate dental meeting.

More than 150 presenters spoke during the approximately 200 breakout sessions held throughout the event.

The 95,000 square-foot trade show hall, with more than 50 vendors showcasing the best products and services in the industry, opened at 11:30 am on Thursday and remained open throughout each day of the event.

Thursday concluded with an inviting Welcome Reception, a thought-provoking and interactive Q&A session with Sir Richard Branson, business mogul and one of Forbes' World's Billionaires, and lastly, a sidesplitting standup performance by legendary comedian Jerry Seinfeld.

Friday morning started early with the traditional fun run, back by popular demand.  The Go for the Gold Fun Run attracted many who donned their favorite country's colors and were ready to begin the day with a fun, laidback workout.

The agenda also included a myriad breakout sessions and two General Sessions by Dr. Frank Spear, founder of Spear Education, and by therapist, comedienne and author Connie Podesta.

Following the completion of breakouts on Friday, the Tailgate Party kicked off for attendees to relax and mingle before heading to an epic exclusive concert by Grammy-Award nominated band OneRepublic, who gave a wonderfully energetic performance that had attendees on their feet through the entirety of the show.

The entertainment and fun fitness activities continued the following morning where guests joined Tae Bo® creator Billy Blanks for an invigorating fitness workout on the outdoor terrace to prepare for the last day of the ultimate dental meeting.

Close to 100 breakout sessions were available on Saturday for guests to finish SIROWORLD strong and gain the maximum amount of CE available.

Saturday evening, guests celebrated the conclusion of SIROWORLD at the Ultimate Glow Party, located inside the Rosen Shingle Creek.  Attendees came in their brightest neon colors and enjoyed the colorful ambiance, the giant LED dance floor and an incredible local band playing, Hot Property.
