TOLMAR and Zila Combine to Form Strong Dental Products Company

FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On Friday, Sept. 18, 2009, the shareholders of Zila, Inc., a dental products company providing products for use in the prevention, detection and treatment of oral disease, approved the company’s merger with a subsidiary of TOLMAR Holding, Inc.

These two innovative dental companies have now combined to offer dental professionals an impressive line of dental care products. Zila, a division of TOLMAR, as the new company is called, provides a combined range of high-quality products surrounding consumable home care products, in-office diagnostics, acute care products, and prevention tools that allow dental professionals to effectively treat patients to the highest professional standards.

Dental professionals will continue to have access to the Zila products they are already familiar with such as the Rotadent® automatic toothbrush, the award-winning Pro-Select Platinum® scaler, and our deep line of products surrounding the Zila Soft Tissue Management® program.

In addition, we are proud to offer ATRIDOX®, the only locally applied antimicrobial that is clinically proven and indicated for all three of these outcomes: gain in clinical attachment, reduction in probing depth, and reduction in bleeding on probing. Also, we are excited to continue the growth and market acceptance of our innovative and cost-efficient oral cancer screening product, ViziLite® Plus, which recently won a 2008 Hygiene Townie Choice Award.

“The new Zila has the financial stability, experience, products, and services to help dental professionals care for their patients while contributing to the success of their practice,” said Mike Duncan, CEO of TOLMAR.
