We are constantly expanding our global partner network of innovative, like-minded clinics and institutions to work together on groundbreaking innovations in dentistry and digital dentistry training of tomorrow. With our collaboration initiatives, we want to enhance dental technology training and scientific research in the field of dentistry and oral health.
We collaborate regularly with dental clinics, health care institutions, universities, and dental schools in research projects and dental technology training to set new standards in our field. With the collaboration, we aim to develop innovative and scientifically proven solutions for dentistry and to offer dental professionals with state-of-the-art dental education. The ultimate goal of both the scientific and training collaboration is to provide patients around the world with the best possible care.
Many of Planmeca’s innovations have been born through joint research and close collaboration with universities. Unrivalled scientific knowledge and an in-depth understanding of clinical workflows and new technologies are vital parts of our product development. We want to deepen the cooperation between academic research and dental technology industry and participate regularly in different scientific and research projects.
We are currently participating for example in the following ongoing research projects:
- Finnish Center for Artifical Intelligence (FCAI) collaboration led by Aalto University and University of Helsinki
- AI research within Clever Health Network (CHN) collaboration led by Helsinki University Hospital
- Digital and Physical Immersion in Radiology and Surgery (DPI) project led by Tampere University
Years of close collaboration with leading dental universities for example in radiology and microbiology have resulted in comprehensive and scientifically proven solutions to lower patient doses without uncompromising X-ray image quality and for an effective external and internal dental unit infection control, respectively.
Examples of scientific publications we have participated in include:
- Ultra-low-dose publication by Juha Koivisto
- Hygiene solutions: Water line and suction tube cleaning with the University of Dublin
Additionally, we host numerous master’s and PhD thesis workers at our headquarters every year.
