AMD LASERS to become a private company

Mergers and Acquisitions

Dentsply and AMD Lasers have announced their joint decision for AMD Lasers, a global leader in dental lasers and dental laser education, to become a private company. This change took effect in the USA on 1 August 2014. AMD Lasers and Dentsply will continue their relationship as trusted business partners and in Australia and New Zealand, Dentsply (Australia) Pty Ltd will be the exclusive distributor of AMD Lasers for the foreseeable future.

Dentsply and AMD would like to reassure the local market that it is business-as-usual and Dentsply will continue to offer dedicated sales and service including clinical education courses and support with laser license applications where required. The local service centre at the Dentsply Australia Head Office in Melbourne will continue to operate as usual, offering product calibrations, warranty covers and repairs.

Alan Miller, president and founder of AMD Lasers, said "This is a great outcome for our customers and our company. In taking AMD private again, we plan to go back to our roots, focusing on the entrepreneurial spirit that made AMD Lasers one of the fastest growing and most successful companies in the dental industry."

Sue Dafnias, Director of Marketing at Dentsply Australia, said "Dentsply Australia is committed to providing the Australian and New Zealand dental markets with solutions 'For Better Dentistry'. We are proud to be the sole distributor of AMD Lasers in these markets, providing a high quality, cost-effective solution for improved soft-tissue tissue management and periodontal treatment, with better patient outcomes.

"We are committed to educating the market and supporting clinicians with added-value service and support, including our local AMD Lasers servicing centre. In terms of the distribution of AMD Lasers, it's business as usual and we are confident that customers will continue to have a positive purchasing experience."
