Dental Supplies Settlement

In re Dental Supplies Antitrust Litigation - Case No. 1:16-CV-00696

Settlement Fund:            $80,000,000
Settlement Period:          August 31, 2008 – March 31, 2016
Claim Filing Deadline:    October 15, 2019


Overview

This settlement arose from allegations that the largest distributors of dental supplies and equipment in the U.S. had agreed that they would not compete on price for the sale of dental products. Plaintiffs claim that this alleged manipulation of the market and pricing of dental products resulted in dental practitioners, practices, clinics, and labs being overcharged for dental products.​


Eligibility

Eligible Class Members include dental practitioners, practices, clinics, and labs that purchased dental supplies from Henry Schein, Patterson, Benco, Burkhart Dental Supply Company or any combination thereof from August 31, 2008, until March 31, 2016. The lawsuit claims that these companies account for approximately 90% of all sales of dental products in the U.S.

Dental supplies means consumable dental products used by dentists and dental laboratories, sometimes referred to as sundries or merchandise, and include items such as gloves, hand instruments, face masks, toothbrushes, anesthetic solutions, and the like.
