organization in dentistry, and you should expect a seamless transition. I
understand and endorse the high level of expectations we and others place on
us as the leader in dental technology, and I am excited by the challenges and
opportunities that lie ahead. During my fourteen years in the dental industry,
with the last seven at Sirona, I have been focused on advancing dentistry,
improving patient care and delivering shareholder value. I am confident that
with the ongoing commitment and dedication of our outstanding management team,
we will continue to drive innovation to progress dentistry even further”, says
