Dentsply and Henry Schein both show modest or potential upsides with evidence of the worldwide dental implant market trends improving.

Align Technology announced a $70 million accelerated stock repurchase plan last week. They expect to fully execute the plan over the next three months.

Overall, Baird “continues to favor” Dentsply and Henry Schein, and they’re “staying patient” on Align.
