Eastman Kodak Co, Rochester, NY, has signed a 2-year agreement to become the exclusive dental x-ray intraoral and extraoral film brand for SmileCare Family Dentistry, a group that owns and operates more than 60 multispecialty dental centers in California and Las Vegas.

Under the agreement, SmileCare practices will use Kodak Ultra-Speed Intraoral Dental Film, a high-contrast, fine-detail film; and Kodak T-Mat G Extraoral Dental Film, a high-resolution, high-contrast, green-sensitive film. SmileCare will also use Kodak’s family of Cook-White anesthetic products, which includes Lidocaine, Carbocaine, Zorcaine, and the newly released Marcaine.

“We converted to Kodak because of its long-standing reputation for product quality and service,” says Ivan Berger, DMD, SmileCare’s chief dental director.

“We are strongly committed to high-quality dental care and comfort, and we look forward to working closely with SmileCare to help deliver excellent-quality dental images to the patients that they serve,” says Ruth Arbuckle, general manager of Kodak’s dental business in the United States and Canada.
