Companies to help hurricane-stricken dentists

Sept. 21, 2005
KaVo Dental and Gendex offer special discount off product retail prices to affected dental professionals in Hurricane Katrina area.

KaVo Dental's and Gendex's parent corporation, Danaher, announced in early September that it will offer a significant cash contribution to the Red Cross and will match all employee donations dollar for dollar until Sept. 30. The dollar for dollar match is unlimited.

In addition to this contribution, KaVo Dental and Gendex are offering a special 15% discount off retail prices on all KaVo/Gendex products to any affected dental office or dental laboratory in the Gulf region. This effort is intended to help those dental professionals who are attempting to rebuild or repair their dental practices and laboratories that were devastated in the hurricane.

John Franz, President of North American Sales for KaVo Dental, stated: "It is only through everyone's willingness to be proactive and offer generous support to the relief efforts. KaVo Dental and Gendex are committed to aid dental professionals to get back on their feet. This is the largest natural disaster in American history, and will require tremendous resources to help everyone."

The special hurricane relief discount will remain in effect indefinitely. The special discount cannot be combined with any other KaVo or Gendex promotions or discounts.

Interested dental professionals are encouraged to talk to their local dealer to take advantage of this special offer.
