Kodak Files for Bankruptcy but not in Dental

All is well in the dental industry from the Kodak perspective ( except I cant get my old Kodak digital camera repaired). Onex (Carestream Dental) is actually Kodak Dental. Here is the official word that was sent to me:

As you likely have already read, Kodak announced this morning that they are filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. We will no doubt receive many questions about the potential effects Kodak’s recent financial challenges might have on our business. For the record, all of the assets of Kodak’s Health Imaging business were purchased in 2007 by Onex, the parent company of Carestream Dental, including more than 1,000 patents and the manufacturing facilities. Carestream Dental simply licenses the right to use the KODAK name on some of the products that we manufacture.

Carestream Dental is solely responsible for the design, manufacture and service of all Carestream branded and KODAK branded products that we sell. Please be assured that Kodak’s financial challenges do not affect Carestream in any way, and that we are as committed as ever to our customers’ success and advancing the state of dental care around the world. More information can be found at the link below. Many thanks for your continued help and support!

Wyatt Wilson - My Friend at Acteon

Wyatt passed away suddenly last weekend at age 39. I spent time with him at the Greater NY meeting just 2 weeks ago when we were talking about his young son and daughter and the holidays. I met his son Logan over a year ago and like Wyatt he was a giant kid. Wyatt, although quite serious in his quest to constantly improve his company, always had time for me and others and loved to combine work stories with his life stories.

There are some people who you meet and immediately feel they are your new friend. This was Wyatt. He will be sorely missed of course by his family, as well as his far reaching dental family. This was way too soon soon to lose you big guy. Say a prayer for Logan, his daughter Rachel and wife Lauren.

Back Again

This has been my busiest year of lecture and travel. That along with some changes in the administration of my office as well as getting my son graduated from High School and off to College, I have let this blog slide. I have been to many dental meetings including the IDS in Cologne, Germany as well as looking at numerous new products and now have to get back to the reporting here. I hope to have more before the Greater NY Meeting right after Thanksgiving, where I will be seeing even more new products.

This year has brought us new innovations in intraoral scanning as well as several new entries. Conebam CT has taken off especially in the endodontic world. The Cloud has opened new vistas for practice management and patient education, while the iPad and clones are invading our everyday existence. There will be a lot of catching up to do here. As they say, stay tuned.
