Des Plaines, January 2, 2007

DEXIS, LLC, and Dentrix Dental Systems, Inc., a
division of Henry Schein, Inc., today announce an agreement to transfer Dentrix’s
proprietary dental imaging business to DEXIS. The products to be transferred include
the Dentrix® ImageRAYi and easyRAY sensors, Image CAM HD intra-oral camera, the
award-winning Dentrix® Image software and easyImage software. The combined
product portfolio will continue to be exclusively distributed through Sullivan Schein Dental™, a Henry Schein division. “DEXIS, LLC and Sullivan Schein Dental have enjoyed a successful exclusive distribution partnership since 2005”, states Mike Donohoe, President of DEXIS. As their relationship has developed, both companies wanted to further improve services to their customers by recognizing and leveraging their respective strengths. “DEXIS® has established broad followership since it introduced the world’s most awarded intra-oral sensor solution in 1995”, continued Mr. Donohoe. “This combination of our resources and expertise will strengthen our team and product portfolio even more, and help us offer our customers world class imaging solutions in the future”. In assuming ownership of Dentrix® branded imaging solutions, DEXIS plans to work closely with Sullivan Schein Dental and Dentrix® Dental Systems to ensure that Dentrix® Image software continues to be supported and closely integrated with Dentrix® Practice Management software.

Dentrix Dental Systems’ world-class practice management software and services
business remains independent from this agreement. Dentrix Dental Systems will
continue to offer and support Dentrix® practice management and Easy Dental® practice
management and related services. The company’s mission is to help its practitioners
automate the management of their practices with technology and related services. “This agreement combines the strengths of three market leaders”, states Tim Sullivan, President of Sullivan Schein Dental, “and enables Sullivan Schein Dental to offer the best solutions of both practice management and digital imaging to its customers”. Dentrix and DEXIS will continue to offer and support the products they sell today and serve their existing customers. DEXIS, LLC, is a leading developer, manufacturer, and marketer of innovative digital x-ray systems, sold under the DEXIS® and DEXcare® brand names. Dentrix® Dental Systems is the leading developer, manufacturer, and marketer of award-winning practice management solutions offered exclusively by Sullivan Schein Dental.
