Dentsply to Acquire AMD Lasers

I have it on good authority from multiple sources in the industry that later this summer, laser manufacturer AMD will be purchased by Dentsply. The laser line, it is rumored, will be sold thru their Tulsa Dental Division.

AMD came to market a few years ago with a great price point on a diode laser and drove industry laser prices down while simultaneously driving industry interest in lasers through the roof.
After establishing a nice foothold in the market, rumors began to swirl that someone bigger would be buying the company.

Dentsply is holding off on making the announcement so they can focus on the very important news of their acquisition of Astra Tech which occurred which occurred this week.

It now appears that the "someone" is Dentsply. Interesting times indeed!
