Research Strategy

We sought to find out the competitive landscape of two dental equipment companies given by the client. Both companies have a strict pricing strategy that mainly restricts information on the prices to doctors only. This could be explained by the disruption caused by the emergence of online wholesalers offering competitive prices. Recently, both companies, including Patterson, were involved in an antitrust case with the FTC explaining the price tensions between the competitors.
