Planmeca USA Opens the University of Planmeca

Posted on April 11, 2014

Roselle, IL (April 11, 2014) -- What if there was a location where you could earn continuing education credits and see demonstrations of the latest Planmeca imaging units, furniture and other products for your operatory?

Now, there is such a place.  Planmeca USA has opened the University of Planmeca, a new multipurpose facility adjacent to its main North American plant in northwest suburban Roselle, Ill.

The University of Planmeca is a unique 10,000 square foot space that features room for 60 students in a wi-fi setting complete with comprehensive audiovisual capabilities for virtually any classroom setting.

“We established the University of Planmeca to meet the need for dentists to pursue continuing education to keep up with the latest in dental imaging issues. We also wanted a state of the industry showroom to demonstrate our best-in-class imaging units and operatory furniture,” said Planmeca USA President Bob Pienkowski.

Pienkowski said the space is ideal for clinicians, dealers sales representatives, study clubs and dental associations to hold their regular meetings and receive training on Planmeca imaging units.

In addition to product demonstrations, the location offers to host educational programs or develop customized training courses on issues pertinent to dental imaging professionals.

“The University of Planmeca is more than just a new space for dentists, it represents an opportunity for the dental industry to meet, learn and plan for the dental practice of the future,” Pienkowski said.

The showroom portion of the facility includes five operatories highlighting different imaging equipment, each with a unique specialty focus, Pienkowski said.

“Dentists need to see our imaging units to appreciate the seemless engineering, small footprint and elegant design – U.P. allows them to do just that,” Pienkowski said.

Dentists interested in making an appointment to see the facility can do so by contacting their local sales rep:
