One of the great opportunities we had at the Kodak users meeting was to meet and speak with most of the top executives in the dental division. These are the people directly involved in the pending sale of the Kodak health care division. They can not ethically or legally reveal details of the ongoing negotiations however everyone of them was excited about the future and the new opportunities for Kodak dental systems and the dentists they serve.
Some users are understandably concerned about the announced strategic changes at Kodak. However from everything I have been able to discover and from past experience I do not believe there is anything to worry about. Most likely the dentists will end up being better served. In the past year or so there have been a number of similar changes, for example Schick was sold to Sirona, Gendex and Dexis were sold as was Kavo. These brands are continuing to prosper and the products are being supported.
