Danaher screws the lil guy

Danaher has tighten up their  sales force by whacking a whole bunch of indys and Pearson as well... in the bay area their gonna leave the sales to Schein ( who sell the hell out of planmeca) Benco ( who isn't even here,yet) and Patterson?( I don't think Patterson is a gendex dealer, Sirona!) and Burkhardt I guess, not sure what burkhardt sells... these guys just spent all last year telling us if we didn't hit a certain number they would take out some dealers...after a damn good effort it…
