Customer FAQ - Intraoral Scanning Technology Sale
Background

On Dec. 22, 2021, Carestream Dental announced that it entered into an agreement to sell the Intraoral Scanning Technology business to Envista Holding Corporation (“Envista”), a leading global dental company. The transaction is anticipated to close on April 20, 2022, subject to legal and regulatory requirements.

The Intraoral Scanning Technology business is composed of the intraoral scanner equipment (CS 3600, CS 3700, CS 3800) and related software (CS ScanFlow, CS Model+, CS Quick Connect and CS IOS Fleet Portal). The imaging technology, clinical software and practice management software businesses are not part of the transaction and will remain with Carestream Dental.

Carestream Dental’s remaining businesses have earned attractive market positions, generate strong earnings and cash flow, and will benefit from sharper focus, as well as recent investments in innovative technologies and growth initiatives.

Carestream Dental is committed to a smooth transition of the Intraoral Scanning Technology business and the continued success of its remaining businesses. Customers should contact their sales representative or Carestream Dental support with questions.
