DMG America recently awarded Federal court injunction against “grey market” distributors

ENGLEWOOD, NJ – DMG America successfully sued Omni Dental Supply/Rosemond Dental Supply (Brooklyn, NY) for “Intellectual property – Patent” infringement of its LUXATEMP® products. The dental distribution company is now bound by a New Jersey Federal court injunction against selling any LUXATEMP product or other DMG America products. Omni Dental Supply/Rosemond Dental Supply had been selling “grey market” LUXATEMP products in the United States that they had imported, marketed, distributed, and offered for sale in violation of DMG America’s exclusive intellectual property rights.

DMG America is the exclusive US distributor of LUXATEMP esthetic provisional materials, the market leader in temporary crown-and-bridge products in the United States, and has been aggressively taking legal action against grey market companies on several fronts. Grey market products are brought into the country in violation of DMG America’s intellectual property rights as they are not authorized for importation, marketing, distribution or sale, in the United States without DMG America’s consent; and, the safety and efficacy of such grey market products cannot be ensured by DMG America.

DMG America will continue to pursue legal action against grey market distributors and assure dental professionals that it will aggressively monitor and protect the safety of its brand products, the integrity of their distribution, and regulate the safe and effective delivery of them to the customer and patient/end user.

DMG America LLC manufacturers and distributes quality restorative materials and prevention products only through authorized dealers. For more information, contact 1-800-662-6383, or visit www.dmg-america.com.
