Patterson plans to expand core equipment offerings

Patterson Companies has announced plans to expand its range of core equipment offerings and extend its current assortment to include an increased number of high-end products, as well as add entry-level and midrange selections.

Patterson will look to bring its various technology offerings together with multiple core equipment platforms. Core dental equipment includes chairs, units, and cabinetry; technology equipment includes chairside CAD/CAM and other digital dental systems.

"Patterson is particularly excited to introduce chairs and treatment center products from Sirona to the North American market in response to customer demand for equipment that is highly integrated with the advanced technology in today's modern dental office," said Paul Guggenheim, president of Patterson Dental. "Further, we look forward to creating new manufacturer relationships and broadening our current partnerships with A-dec, DentalEZ, Planmeca, Proma, and others."
