Important message from Discus Dental

To our Dental Professional Partners:

We have been contacted by, and have reason to believe that you may be contacted by, an individual named Peter Hamm, President of Timed Out, LLC. Mr. Hamm, a private individual and not an attorney, claims to represent certain photographic models whose images have been used in Discus advertising materials. He asserts that Discus Dental misappropriated the images of these models and failed to compensate them properly. He is contacting dental professionals who he believes may have acquired Discus office art, asserting that these dental professionals are directly responsible for compensation and damages supposedly owed to the models.

It is Discus' position that these claims are baseless and we have filed a lawsuit against Mr. Hamm and his company in LA Superior Court. We believe that the rights to use of these images were properly secured by Discus and that any claims asserted directly against dental professional purchasers of Discus office art are frivolous.

We ask that you bring any contact of this nature to the attention of Cheron Griffin at 310-845-8131 (toll free 1-800-422-9448, x8131) or cgriffin@discusdental.com. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and will endeavor to resolve this situation as quickly as possible. Thank you for your continued support of Discus Dental.

Yours sincerely,
Frank McGillin
General Manager Discus
VP. Philips Consumer Lifestyle
