Dentists also remain optimistic regarding practice revenues, expecting a weighted average  increase of 1.6% over the next 12 months. The majority of respondents broadly expect  strengthening overall demand as compared to the current experience, consistent with our  view of stabilizing dental fundamentals.Based on our survey, Henry Schein and Patterson are the most commonly used  distributors, with 64% and 45% of our respondents utilizing their services, respectively.  Importantly, over a third (36%) of respondents purchase some supplies from the  manufacturer directly. We also ask our cohort what percentage of purchases they make through each source,  where results were unsurprisingly concentrated in the top two US dental distributors. In  terms of consumables, our respondents purchase 31% and 19% of consumables throughv Henry Schein and Patterson, respectively, as well as 36% and 20% of equipment through  Henry Schein and Patterson, respectively.  As a reminder, the ~$20 billion North American dental distribution market is highly  concentrated with the top three players, Henry Schein, Patterson, and Benco Dental  Supply, representing ~85% of the market. Henry Schein continues to dominate with ~35- 40% share according to our survey, with Patterson representing ~23%, based on our  analysis of recently reported company results.

In addition, we asked dentists about their participation in group purchasing organizations.  Only 9% of dentists reported using GPOs, with 6% using one GPO, 3% using two GPOs,  and none using more than three GPOs. As a reminder, GPOs remain relatively nonexistent in Dental, in contrast to their  prevalence in Animal Health, representing only 18% share in our cohort, as compared to  the Animal Health distribution market where GPOs represent 49% share (according to our  1Q Veterinary Survey). Many complaints have risen against the larger dental distributors,  including Benco Dental Supply (private), Henry Schein, and Patterson Companies,  alleging that these distributors are somehow preventing GPOs from successfully entering  the market.  Additionally, in February 2017, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) filed a complaint  against the leading dental distributors (representing ~85% of the market) alleging that  these companies colluded in refusing to provide discounts or services to certain Dental  Service Organizations (DSOs). According to the complaint, Benco and Henry Schein  entered the pact first, with Patterson joining later, and it also alleges that Benco invited  Burkhart Dental Supply to participate in the coalition on multiple occasions.  The FTC trial commenced on October 16th and after three months of trial, the FTC  Complaint Counsel finished its presentation of the evidence on December 19, 2018. At  that time, Patterson moved to dismiss the case against the company in its entirety, indicating that the Complaint Counsel had failed to prove that Patterson had colluded with  the other two named distributors. Of note, the judge denied Patterson’s motion on  February, 22, 2019. We await further updates in the upcoming months.
