(NYSE and SIX: ZBH), a global leader in musculoskeletal healthcare, is pleased to announce the grand re-opening of its dental division’s Zimmer Biomet Institute training center in Parsippany, New Jersey. The Zimmer Biomet Institute Parsippany training center is a part of the dental division of Zimmer Biomet.

The newly enhanced 20,000 square foot dental training center includes a simulation lab, a cadaver lab and lecture room. The facility dedicated to training provides scientific educational courses for dental clinicians from around the world who are interested in restorative, surgical and regenerative procedures. The courses offered at the center include cadaveric-based training, case study reviews and simulation workshops (on lifelike mannequins) in our proprietary, state-of-the-art patient training laboratory. This provides optimal hands-on experience and support to clinicians as they strive to refine their clinical skills.

Focusing on strengthening and enhancing the dental profession through education, the Zimmer Biomet Institutes in North America train more than 1,000 dental clinicians through 65+ courses offered annually.

“We are thrilled to re-open our doors as the Zimmer Biomet Institute and excited to build on the foundation of our ability to provide dynamic professional training,” said Ken Varner, the Director of Institutes for Zimmer Biomet’s dental division. “During our re-opening in Parsippany on February 10, clinicians were able to see first-hand the best in class dental training offerings available in our new facility.”

In order to meet the growing demand from clinicians and the expanding global business of dental implantology, additional facilities will open in China in late 2016 and Palm Beach Gardens, Florida in late 2017. The Carlsbad, California facility will be moving to an enhanced site in June 2016. Existing facilities operate in Bogota, Columbia and Winterthur, Switzerland.
