From the press release sent out from Paul Guggenheim dated Dec. 15, 2014….

We are pleased to announce that Patterson Dental has acquired Holt Dental Supply, a full- service dental supply company based in Waukesha, Wis.

Holt Dental Supply has grown to a prominent position in the upper Midwest dental market and, like Patterson, has dedicated employees who have earned the trust of loyal customers. Through our strengthened Patterson presence in the Midwest, dental practices will benefit from our combined knowledgeable workforce and additional technology and product offerings that continue to set the standard for the patient experience and for dental staff satisfaction too, as dental teams thrive in an efficient, streamlined environment that frees up time.

We also share a strong commitment to taking care of the customer and establishing successful relationships with our business partners. We continue to value our relationship with you, and our focus remains clear and consistent: to serve the dental market with the highest-quality products and services.

Changes you will see include blending Holt Dental Supply operations into the Patterson Dental Milwaukee Branch. Holt Dental Supply customers will be served primarily from the Patterson Distribution Center in South Bend, Ind. Effective immediately, Holt Co-owner and President Paul Holt has joined Patterson Dental, as district sales manager with our Milwaukee Branch.

As can be expected, there are details with combining our operations yet to be worked out. We request your cooperation and deeply appreciate your support to help ensure a smooth transition.

Thank you, in advance, for your assistance during this period of progressive growth and change as we increase our presence in Wisconsin and the upper Midwest. We look forward to working with you as we strengthen our position as an industry leader and continue creating the best possible value for customers.
