Kerr acquires Surgical Acuity

Feb. 6, 2002
Sybron Dental Specialties, Inc. has announced that its Kerr subsidiary acquired the operating assets of Surgical Acuity, the leading manufacturer of telescope and fiber-optic lighting systems for the dental industry.

Surgical Acuity's telescope and lighting systems, marketed under the Orascoptic Research brand, provide the magnification and illumination needed in performing many dental procedures, and are frequently used by specialists in endondontics, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, periodontics, and prosthetic dentistry.

Some lucky youngster will win a cash prize of $600 through the Oklahoma Dental Association's (ODA) fifth annual poster contest. Intended to encourage dental awareness and the practice of good oral health, the competition is open to every fourth grader in the state.
