Dentsply announces workforce reductions & restructuring plan, posts Q3 miss

Dentsply Sirona (NSDQ:XRAY) today announced restructuring plans that will eliminate 6% to 8% of its workforce as the company looks to reduce costs alongside releasing third quarter earnings that missed Wall Street expectations. The York, Penn.-based company said that its management team has “conducted an extensive diagnosis of the market” over the past six months and developed a plan to reduce costs, alongside third-party advisors, while remaining “optimistic about the underlying dental industry.” The company hopes the plan will achieve annualized top-line growth of 3% to 4% and adjusted operating income margin of 20% by 2020, while reducing annual costs by $200 million to $225 million by 2021. The plan includes a 6% to 8% reduction in the company’s global workforce, according to its earnings report, as well as “streamlining the organization and consolidating functions.” “We fully realize that our recent performance has been unacceptable and that is why we are taking aggressive action to grow revenues, expand margins and simplify the organization.  During the implementation of the program, we have prioritized maintaining the company’s revenue stream and serving our customers, including leveraging our existing infrastructure and outside resources to coordinate our activities.  We are dedicated to supporting our talented teams through this important and much-needed transformation. Our path forward will require...

KhanAbstractSurfactants with modified counterions consisting of transition metals and lanthanides are relatively new and not much explored in terms of the possibilities of their applications. Herein, we reported the room temperature synthesis of the colloidal dispersions of metals and bimetal (Cu, Ni, Cu-Ni) oxide/SiO2 particles following a single-step in-situ protocol. The procedure simply invol...

CONCLUSIONS: Although NIRF technology with ICG is providing more image detail, we demonstrated that IRT is capable of detecting kidney parenchyma perfusion with warm fluids. Further studies will show its feasibility in graft re-perfusion assessment during kidney transplant or similar applications. PMID: 30895767 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Rayfield Byrd knows when it’s time to wake up every morning. The 68-year-old Oakland, Cal., resident hears a voice from the living room offering a cheery good morning. Except Byrd lives alone. A little after 8 a.m. each day, a small yellow robot named Mabu asks Byrd how he’s doing. Byrd has Type 2 diabetes and congestive heart failure, and about three years ago, he had surgery to implant a microvalve in his heart to keep his blood flowing properly.

Conclusion: In conclusion, this study provided a “normal” range for the relationship of the proximal lateral tibial plateau relative to the lateral femoral condyle. The lateral femoral epicondyle is generally aligned with the lateral tibial articular margin. The relationship between the lateral tibial plateau, lateral femoral epicondylar surface, and lateral femoral articular surface is constant from side to side. This technique is reproducible in the setting of fracture, and templating off of the contralateral uninjured knee may be beneficial in tibial plateau fracture surgery.
