CarieScan inks distribution deal with Patterson

CarieScan, a wholly owned subsidiary of 3D Diagnostic Imaging, has signed an exclusive agreement with Patterson Dental for the distribution of the CarieScan Pro in the U.S.

The CarieScan Pro measures the presence of tooth decay and detects "hidden" decay, providing dental practitioners with the opportunity to arrest or even reverse the decay, according to the companies. The CarieScan Pro consists of a handpiece and a disposable sensor that is held against the tooth being examined in a process that takes approximately four seconds per tooth.

Patterson Dental is the largest distributor of dental equipment in North America, with revenues in the 2009 financial year in excess of $2.1 billion.
