Lompoc, CA, February 20, 2014 – DenMat, a leading manufacturer and direct distributor of innovative esthetic dentistry and advanced oral health solutions, announced today that it has acquired substantially all dental assets of Fort Collins, CO based Zila, Inc. Zila manufactures and markets a portfolio of proprietary oral hygiene products dedicated to the detection, prevention and treatment of periodontal disease, and the management of oral health.
Building upon a broad range of dental equipment, materials, and esthetic lab services, DenMat will integrate Zila’s soft tissue and oral hygiene-focused products into its expanding portfolio. These products, which include Rotadent® professional power toothbrush, Atridox® locally applied antibiotic for treatment of periodontitis, ProDenRx soft-tissue management essentials, and NV® cordless soft-tissue diode laser, will enable DenMat to offer to dental professionals a one-stop-shop for preventative soft-tissue management and enhanced oral hygiene.
"This acquisition is a major milestone for us," said Steve Semmelmayer, CEO of DenMat. "DenMat is not only acquiring a trusted line of oral hygiene products but is also expanding its North American sales and customer care team to support this significant product line growth and entry into the oral hygiene market. Zila’s products are a perfect fit with DenMat’s current suite of oral health and esthetic products."
Building on its goal to offer dental professionals a broad range of high-quality choices, DenMat’s addition of Zila’s products follows DenMat’s recent acquisitions of restoratives and impression products from Royal Philips Electronics, including Splash® and Precision® impression materials, Vanilla Bite™ registration material, Perfectemp® crown and bridge material, and Flashlite™ curing lights. Similarly, DenMat recently acquired PeriOptix, Inc., a California-based company known for high-quality magnification and illumination technologies for dental and medical professionals.
David Speights, CEO of Zila, Inc. stated "We are thrilled to know that the legacy of Zila’s products will continue on with such a strong and well-respected global dental organization in DenMat."
