LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. has announced its wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary, LED Dental Inc. has entered into a non-exclusive partnership with Patterson Dental for the distribution of the company’s VELscope® Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment System and product line within the US and Canadian markets.

“We are pleased to welcome Patterson Dental as our newest US distribution partner for the VELscope® Vx family of products,” stated Dr. David Gane, CEO of LED Medical. “Patterson Dental is one of the most respected names in North America, with an exemplary reputation for providing innovative products and focusing on the success of its customers.

“With more than 85 branch offices nationwide and over 1,500 sales representatives and equipment specialists, Patterson Dental is a valued distribution partner for LED Dental.”

“The VELscope® Vx product line is an important addition to the wide range of products we provide to our customers,” stated Paul Guggenheim, president of Patterson Dental.

The distinctive blue-spectrum light of the VELscope® Vx hand-held device causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinct patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease, such as neoplastic lesions, chemical irritation, side-effects from medication, thermal damage, fungal, viral or bacterial infections.

“With its powerful and proven tissue fluorescence technology, the VELscope® Vx device provides important visual information that can help dentists detect oral abnormalities sooner than with the naked eye,” Guggenheim added. “We are excited to bring this product to our customers to supplement the high level of oral care they already provide.”
