Observation and Commentary On the Dental Industry

CDA Day 2

Posted by dentalinsider on May 4, 2008

Rumors were flying about the convention hall today, like panties at a Bon Jovi concert. Who is the next takeover target, who is going out of business and which manufacturer was siding with PDCO or HSIC.

Traffic seemed to be a bit thin for a Saturday although afternoon traffic seemed to pick up a bit. Consensus by both the mfg’s and the distributors was that sales were a bit off from previous years. Digital is still the hot ticket this year. I must say I was surprised to see so many “gray market” dealers on the floor with sizable booth space. Most everyone agreed that the industry is in a state of flux and no one is sure the direction it is heading. Time for one more cocktail and off to bed. More tomorrow.
