MELVILLE, N.Y., December 1, 2019 – Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC) and Ivoclar Vivadent AG announced today the plans for distribution of the new PrograMill One Milling System, where the companies do business together.
As a wireless system, the PrograMill One is a self-contained unit that allows the mill to be placed anywhere within a practice and does not require any separate filtration or suction units. While the expectation for the system is high in the medium to long term, Ivoclar Vivadent states the supply will be limited as production will be increased in the first half of 2020.
“As a company, Henry Schein is committed to open architecture and to bringing the broadest and best range of digital technology to dental professionals. We aspire to be the resource our customers can rely on for expert advice and guidance in transforming their practice to digital,” said Jonathan Koch, Senior Vice President and CEO, Global Dental Group, Henry Schein. “We are pleased to add Ivoclar Vivadent’s PrograMill One to our line-up of digital dentistry solutions. Ivoclar Vivadent has a long history of producing quality products, such as the Ivoclar Vivadent IPS e.max CAD blocks, and we look forward to offering our customers all the innovative products from Ivoclar Vivadent.”
“Ivoclar Vivadent and Henry Schein share a decades-long partnership that is dedicated to bringing high-quality products to dental professionals,” said Diego Gabathuler, CEO of Ivoclar Vivadent. “By making the PrograMill One Milling System available through Henry Schein, we are pleased to expand this relationship with a partner that has unparalleled global reach. We look forward to working together to accelerate the adoption of digital dentistry.”
