Dentsply International reported net sales of $565.1 million in the second quarter of 2010 (end-June 30), a 2.2% increase over net sales of $552.8 million reported for the second quarter of 2009.
Sales were negatively impacted by the strengthening of the U.S. dollar, the company said.
Net income for the quarter was $72.4 million, up from $70.2 million for the same quarter a year ago.
"The dental markets have shown a modest recovery in the first half of 2010," said Bret Wise, chairman and CEO, in a press release. In this environment, we are pleased that our performance has also gradually improved, allowing us to generate positive internal sales growth through the first half of the year."
