Dentsply Sirona’s DAC Universal was awarded with a Red Dot Award for Product Design. The product impressed the jury with an intuitive and visually appealing user interface. With DAC Universal, Dentsply Sirona offers an infection control system with a fully automatic reprocessing workflow. Due to COVID-19, this year’s award winners were honoured during the Red Dot Design Week.

With DAC Universal, Dentsply Sirona adds a Red Dot Award to the company’s portfolio in 2020. Among more than 6,500 product applications, DAC Universal convinced the jury with its high design quality and intuitive user interface. The award-winning product was presented at the Red Dot Design Week, which took place as a virtual event due to COVID-19. 

Intuitive workflow for a high level of safety
The jury was impressed with Dentsply Sirona’s DAC Universal, emphasizing both its “sleek appearance that expresses efficiency and cleanliness” and the “thoughtful functionality, [which] saves dental practices a lot of time in terms of everyday tasks.” DAC Universal was launched in 2019 with a complete facelift and numerous changes, including a touch display with intuitive user interface and a guided maintenance workflow. With DAC Universal, Dentsply Sirona offers an infection control system with a clear and effective workflow that ensures a high level of safety for the patient and the practice team. The fully automatic reprocessing allows for cleaning, lubrication (if necessary), and a thermal disinfection of up to six instruments within approx. 15 minutes – by simply pressing a single button. 

“For me DAC Universal is the best solution on the market today for fast reprocessing of contra angles and turbines. Information given by the display is easy to understand as well as cycle time remaining,” explains dental assistant Jane Mikkelsen in Hinnerup, Denmark, who had the opportunity to assist Dentsply Sirona with early testing of the product. “The design of the lids of the new DAC are excellent and help to minimize direct contact with hot surfaces. When removing the lid, it is no longer possible to come into contact with hot metal, as the lid has been redesigned.” 

“The award confirms our key objectives as a leading dental company in the global market: Bringing together excellent functionality and premium design in products that meet all requirements of dental professionals and continuously improve the experience for patients,” said Michael Geil, Group Vice President Equipment and Instruments at Dentsply Sirona.
