Solmetex Acquires DryShield

Solmetex has announced its acquisition of DryShield. DryShield manufactures in-treatment patient isolation products that utilize high suction evacuation, bite block, tongue shield, and oral pathways protectors. DryShield is designed for better comfort and safety for both patient and practitioner, according to a press release from both companies. Solmetex aligned with DryShield’s mission to grow this technology, according to CEO and co-founder of DryShield Thien Nguyen.

“We are excited to work with the Solmetex team to accelerate and scale DryShield across the dental industry markets both domestically and internationally,” Nguyen said in the press release. “Solmetex brings a world-class organization and complementary set of capabilities, including commercial and financial resources to take DryShield to the next level.”

This acquisition comes shortly after Solmetex’s acquisition of Sterisil which specializes in dental water line infection control products. Both of these acquisitions are designed to assist Solmetex’s mission in serving patients, according to Solmetex CEO Gene Dorff.

“This is a transformational time for Solmetex and the addition of DryShield to our platform will ensure growth and expansion into other technology areas where we believe Solmetex will be successful,” Dorff said in the press release. “We will continue to deliver excellent customer service, and high-quality, reliable products to all of our business partners and the patient populations they serve. I look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with the team to execute our future growth plans.”
